" my life as a caricature was hard to even if only for two months."
Netflix's original series Girlboss has been cancelled after just one season, following the brutal cancellations of Sense8 and The Get Down.

Variety reports production of the show's next season will not be going forward, based on Instagram postings from fashion entrepreneur Sophia Amoruso.

Netflix has chose to cancel Girlboss for simply not being as well-received as they would have liked, reports Deadline.

Reviews for the Charlize Theron-exec produced series weren't great, with many criticising the show's particularly dislikeable lead character. Netflix, on the other hand, is dwarfing all rivals with an annual $6 billion investment in content across a wide range of categories, from stand-up comedy to documentary to drama series feature film. The latter, which told the story of the suicide of Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), sparked more serious and important discussions.

If you haven't watched Girlboss on Netflix yet, firstly - whyyyyyy?! She shared that one thing she has learned from all of this is that people only seem to read the headlines and not necessarily any corrections that are made. "But before she does, you may get so frustrated with her manic-pixie-jackass routine that you just give up and decide to invest your binge-watching business elsewhere". The series was loosely based on the real Amoruso's life and rise to fame.

It followed Amoruso (Robertson) and her path to becoming an unlikely businesswoman after finding her passion of selling vintage clothes online. "A big, expensive show for a tiny audience is hard even in our model to make that work very long", he said.

The cancellation comes after Netflix swung the axe on Sense8 after two seasons - with Netflix executives claiming that the show's costly budget was not justified by sufficient viewing figures.
