Netflix 2021 Cancelation Guide: Has Your Favorite Drama Been Canceled?

Netflix has released more and more shows as it has grown into a major TV force—but it has also been criticised by many viewers for canceling their favorite shows too early. Last year was no exception, with new shows like Outer Banks, The Queen's Gambit and Ratched proving popular with viewers while series like I Am Not Okay With This, The Society and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina were given the ax.

2021 seems likely to continue this trend. Some huge Netflix shows are set to return, with Stranger Things, The Witcher and Narcos: Mexico expected to release new seasons. Other massive shows like Grace and Frankie, Dead to Me and The Kominsky Method are expected to come to an end after being canceled last year—and other shows are sure to be canceled too, much to some fans disappointment.

Below is a list of every scripted drama original series currently airing on Netflix. We will update this article throughout the year as some shows receive new seasons while others come to an end:
