Netflix has cancelled the comedy series Lady Dynamite after two seasons.
Variety reports that the streaming giant chose not to pursue a third season of the show, which starred comedian Maria Bamford. The series was a semi-autobiographical comedy based on Bamford's real life struggles with bipolar disorder and working in the entertainment business.
The cancellation is somewhat surprising. Lady Dynamite was a critical favorite, sporting a 97 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Its viewer rating was also high at 81 percent.
Netflix did not comment to Variety about a specific reason for the cancellation. It's unclear if the show's ratings were just too low because Netflix doesn't release their viewing data.
Neither Bamford nor co-creators Pam Brady and Mitch Hurwitz have commented on the cancellation.
Both seasons of Lady Dynamite are currently streaming on Netflix. Season 1 totals 12 episodes and focuses on Bamford returning to Los Angeles after undergoing bipolar disorder treatment. Season 2 totals a slimmer eight episodes and centered around Bamford dealing with a new relationship and a new job.
