Girlboss, which is loosely based on Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso’s life, received the axe. Netflix canceled the Britt Robertson-led comedy after a one season run, consisting of 13 episodes.
Bummer because I actually quite enjoyed it. The viewership must’ve really sucked for Girlboss, because it’s rare for the streaming service to break up with a show so early on, especially when it doesn’t have a huge production cost.
Over on ABC, the canine comedy Downward Dog was put down after one brief summer run. Can’t say that I’m all that surprised. The alphabet network banished the series to the summer despite getting a decent Sundance reception. According to producers though, ABC was a fan but it just wasn’t financially possible #yeahright

The third season averaged 3.6 million viewers per episode, including 2 million adults 25-54 in Nielsen live+3 ratings.
“Supporting artists we respect and admire; delivering truly outstanding character development and nuanced dramatic twists and turns; continuing a legacy of bold creative choices; loving writing that is the best in the business: Truly, ‘S’all good, man'” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “Congratulations to Vince, Peter, Bob and everyone involved with ‘Better Call Saul.’ Bring on season four!”
