This Netflix Show Won An Emmy, Then Got Cancelled The Next Day

Winning an Emmy is a big deal for a TV show – cementing your place as a big hit and network darling – Right?

Well, maybe not. The Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance won an Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Program on Sunday – only for Netflix to announce 24 hours later that it was canceled.

The timing made fans furious – especially since Netflix said it was “thrilled” by the Emmy win in the very same announcement.

Despite the cancellation, the makers of Dark Crystal promised to “look for ways to tell that story in the future.”

I am going to guess that no one watch it. Why else would Netflix cancel it?
