Amazon Is Cancelling a Stack of Shows – Here’s What’s Not Coming Backby

Amazon Prime Video has managed to grow over the past few years to become the chief rival against the dominating Netflix in the video streaming market. While YouTube still holds its own as the major network and platform for content creation and free entertainment, Netflix holds most of the cards when it comes to monthly subscriptions for binge-worthy packages. Amazon, however, have continued to expand their library of movies and original programming, having broadened the brand even further beyond its online store roots. However, with 2018 in full flow, it seems that the platform is cancelling a fair few shows that are born and bred Amazon originals. Does this mean the likes of Mr Robot, The Man in The High Castle and – heaven forbid – The Grand Tour are safe? Relax – those are fine – but there’s some shows that bringers will be waving goodbye to.

Three shows in particular which retain a cult following will not be returning for more episodes, according to reports. Among them are the adaptation I Love Dick – starring Kathryn Hahn and Kevin Bacon – which despite critical appraisal will not be coming back for more. Added to the pile is One Mississippi, Tig Notaro’s pet project which she created with Diablo Cody – which seems to be disappearing along the same time as allegations surrounding star Louis CK’s conduct with women continue to emerge. It’s thought that CK’s character would have taken on a bigger role in the next season – which, sadly, will never see the light of day.

Fans of Jean-Claude Van Damme may be dismayed to hear that his fictionalized self in Jean Claude Van Johnson will not be returning for a seventh episode – though it will hardly be the last that we’ll hear of the legendary action hero, his landmark Amazon series coming to an end will be a bit of a party pooper to JCVD fanatics. Chances are he’s not letting the news get him down!

With both Amazon and Netflix now having amassed sizeable libraries of original content, it seems that they can both really pick and choose what stays and what goes – and as with all US TV networks, the decisions can often be brutal – but not always final, as anyone invested in either Arrested Development, Futurama or Family Guy will tell you. Say goodbye to these shows – for now!
