A Netflix has an extensive catalog of films, documentaries, series and animations. However, animated productions are not going through a good time on the streaming service, since cancellations of several cartoons are constant, even with a considered high popularity.
In most cases, the reason is the same: the containment of funds to focus on more popular works, such as popular series, such as Stranger Things, Wandinha, among others. And even the great fan appeal, with many requests on social networks, does not seem to have an effect, and there are titles that, unfortunately, we will not see again so soon.
Today Minha Série brings a list with 6 Netflix animations that were canceled, leaving fans orphaned from the productions. Check out!
