Cancelled: the series that will not renew their seasons next year

Among them “Westworld”, “Legends of Tomorrow” and “Warrior Nun”

The year 2022 also says goodbye with some not so pleasant announcements for viewers who were aware of the television series throughout these months. From Netflix to HBO Max, there were various productions that faced the terrible news of a cancellation without the opportunity to finish their stories. What titles gave a lot to talk about after not being renewed?


Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the series was born as one of HBO’s great promises and ranked among the best of critics with its first two seasons. However, the other two that followed (including the fourth installment that was released this year) diverged markedly from their original premise and their plot was pushed into a more cyberpunk genre. The western was barely the memory. It was canceled and removed from the HBO Max catalog.

Warrior Nun

Undoubtedly, one of the cancellations that caused the most fury among viewers. With the release of Season 2, the title was within Netflix’s Global Top 10 for three weeks; but failed to convince the streaming giant to grant it a renewal. The story is about a young orphan, Ava (Alba Baptista), who must assume the legacy of being the Warrior Nun of the Order of the Cruciform Sword.

Fate: the Winx saga

The refusal of a renewal of this youth series also caused anger among its fans, after Iginio Straffi (creator of the animated program Club Winx) worked for years to carry out a live-action proposal. Netflix dropped the production after the premiere of the second installment last September. The plot was based on Straffi’s original characters and introduced new elements more geared towards young adult audiences.

Mike Flanagan had only developed anthology series for Netflix (The Haunting of Hill House) until the creation of this horror series inspired by Christopher Pike’s novel of the same name. There are many questions that remained in the air after the end of its first season and could only be answered by its creator through Twitter as he no longer had the opportunity to reveal them in more episodes.


It could be considered the most stumbled DC series in the Arrowverse, the famous Warner Channel television universe. First, it had Ruby Rose star in the role of Kate Kane, but the actress was soon replaced in the second and third seasons by Javicia Leslie, who played Ryan Wilder. The latter became the new Batwoman, but she failed to go beyond her on her journey after being denied a fourth-episode renewal.

This fiction based on a supernatural horror podcast was produced by James Wan (The Conjuring). In its debut, it was also positioned among the most watched on Netflix with just over 128 million hours watched in its first month of release. Although the last episode gave rise to a continuation, it failed to materialize after being canceled in March. “While restoring damaged videotapes, an archivist becomes embroiled in a mysterious plot involving the missing director and a demonic cult,” the synopsis states.

Legends of Tomorrow

After seven seasons, the journey of these heroes of time ended with an inconclusive ending that left some open questions for the fans of the DC universe. In its entirety, it was made up of 110 episodes that took place within the Arrowverse and outside of it with their own solo adventures. Currently, it can be seen through the HBO Max platform.

It is a television proposal that did not go beyond the first season and very soon joined the list of LGBTQ+ productions canceled this year. Based on a short story by VE Schwab, the story follows the teenage romance of Juliette, a girl descended from a powerful vampire clan, and rookie monster hunter Calliope. It premiered on Netflix.

The First Lady:

Everything indicated that the performance of Viola Davis as Michelle Obama was going to ensure more chapters for this anthological project originally conceived for Showtime. However, the reviews from the specialized press were not very positive and the chain opted not to work on a second season. The cast also included Michelle Pfeiffer, Gillian Anderson, OT Fagbenle, among others. Available on Paramount+.

The comedy was wrapping up filming for the second season when HBO Max confirmed that it would not go ahead with production. Set in the 1970s, the premise centers on a feminist woman who leads the publication of a women’s erotic magazine and decides to work with a low-cost publisher. It starred Ophelia Lovibond and Jake Johnson.
