Netflix releases a lot of TV. In fact, they produce that a lot of companies combined, and as a result of this volume, not everything gets renewed. We often hear of cancelations, but in the case of dozens of shows, however, we’re still waiting for verdicts on their future. Below are all the titles yet to have their future officially announced as of September 2023.
This is one of three big tracking lists we keep here at What’s on Netflix. We also track all the renewed shows at Netflix that have been renewed for future seasons. We also are tracking all the 2023 cancelations at Netflix.
To keep this list manageable (a surprising number of shows that just ended without any official follow-up), we won’t list titles that haven’t been updated for over three years. It’s probably safe to assume that the show is dead. Titles that fall under this banner include the likes of The Innocents and Tidelands.
We’re also keeping the list mostly limited to English-language shows.
Due to the ongoing Hollywood strikes, the LA Times did report that Netflix told them that “programming conversations are on hold due to the writers’ strike” specifically referring to Shadow and Bone season 3. Since that comment, The Lincoln Lawyer and One Piece have been renewed during the strike.
If we’re missing any titles below or you’ve got intel on the future of a show that isn’t publicly available, hit me up by email (kasey@whats-on-netflix) or let us know in the comments.
