Netflix might have a reputation for spending big on original content, but it's not scared of pulling the plug when a show isn't working. It's already cancelled 'Sense8' and 'The Get Down', and now it's canned 'Girlboss' after just one series.

The show was unpopular with critics from the start. It followed Sophia (Britt Robertson), a misfit who becomes an unlikely entrepreneur when she starts her own fashion company. It was loosely based on the true story of Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso.

While Netflix doesn't disclose viewing figures, it's likely 'Girlboss' was underperforming.

However, the streaming service has commissioned a second series of 'Bill Nye Saves the World', the show that aims to make science fun. Us Brits might not be familiar with Nye's work, but in the US he's a household name (he's known as "Bill Nye the science guy").

And 'Fuller House' is coming back on 22nd September. The third series of the 'Full House' reboot will air on the 30th anniversary of the first episode of 'Full House'. The first nine episodes will go live on 22nd September, with the second nine to follow sometime in December – Netflix will confirm the date nearer the time.
