The ongoing list of Netflix canceled shows proves that all good things—and, admittedly, some not-so-good things—must come to an end. 

Though we're used to the streaming platform's circle of life, it's never easy to part ways with beloved characters and storylines. Below you'll find a working list of shows leaving Netflix this year, including ones that have been outright nixed, so prepare your marathons accordingly. 

Netflix canceled shows: What's saying goodbye in 2023

If you're feeling a bit blue, just keep in mind that there are plenty of new titles to look forward to: the Bridgerton spinoff, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, Wednesday season 2, to name just a few.

1. Sex/Life

Though the steamy Adam Demos shower scene got everyone's attention in season 1, the sophomore installment of the romance novel turned series didn't really capture viewers' attention. One month after the season 2 premiere, Netflix revealed that the show will not go on, likely due to its lead, Sarah Shahi's, comments. 

While appearing on the Not Skinny But Not Fat, she said, "I'm not going to put it [the show] down, but I definitely did not have the support that I did the first season from the people involved in the show. It became a much different thing for me — and I'm not afraid to say that."

She added, she's "never gonna work for Netflix again now after saying all this."

2. 'Never Have I Ever'

In 2022, we learned Mindy Kaling's sweet YA rom-com journey will come to an end after four seasons. We'll likely see Devi wrap up high school life—and her romantic encounters—before heading off to college. (Fingers crossed for Princeton!) 

"We've just been renewed for a fourth and final season, which we are absolutely thrilled about," series creators Mindy Kaling and Lang Fisher said in a statement. "We can't wait to reveal all the steamy romance and hilarious adventures we have in store for you. Thanks to all our fans for your support – especially you #Bevi and #Daxton stans. We love you!"

3. 'Firefly Lane'

Sadly, we won't be joining Kate and Tully for Firefly Lane season 3, but Firefly Lane season 2 part 2 is on its way in June. The only thing we can guarantee: you're 100% going to need a box of Kleenex.

4. 'The Crown'

The Crown season 6 will be our last peek inside royal life. One of Netflix's most-watched shows of all time, this fictional take on history will get us up to speed with the current generation of royals: Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

5. 'Manifest'

Just in time for summer, Manifest season 4 part 2, the show's last will hit the streamer on Friday, June 2 In the sci-fi drama, a group of passengers on an airplane realize they've actually been missing for five years upon landing, and life changed quite a bit in those five years...
