Chelsea Handler's chat show 'Chelsea' will end this year. The Netflix programme aimed to "revolutionise the talk show", but the comedian has decided that the second series will be its last.

Instead, she intends to become more politically engaged, with a determination to focus on "becoming a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen" ahead of the upcoming US elections.

"Like so many across the country, the past presidential election and the countless events that have unfolded since have galvanised me," the comedian said in a statement on Twitter. "From the national level down to the grassroots, it's clear our decisions at the ballot box next year will mark a defining moment for our nation."

But that doesn't mean she's finished with Netflix. Indeed, she's making a documentary for the streaming service in which she engages with "people of different ethnicities, religions and political philosophies" – in other words, "people I don't talk with enough", according to Handler.

This week, Netflix announced it plans to make half of all its content original to Netflix by next year. The service is pumping £6 billion into making this happen, with a big push on anime.
