The platform is notorious for canceling shows and in the last few months we've lost a long list of series from Ru Paul's AJ And The Queen, The OA, and even GLOW. And while Netflix apparently has its reasons for canceling shows after one or two seasonswe still don't love seeing our favorite series get axed so abruptly. Here's every show Netflix has canceled so far in 2020.
