Netflix Cancels ‘Girlboss’ After One Season

Thirteen Episodes in Total Aired

Netflix has opted against a second season of sitcom “Girlboss.” The series, based on the autobiography of Sophia Amoruso, followed Sophia (Britt Robertson) from struggling twenty-something to fashion industry up-and-comer and was loosely based on the real events of Sophia’s life.

Said Sophia Amoruso on Instagram: “While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out. It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months. Yes, I can be difficult. No, I’m not a dick. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years.”

“Girlboss” is the latest in a series of recent cancellations for Netflix in the past few weeks, which includes “The Get Down,” also after one season, and action series “Sense8” after two seasons.
