Netflix has cancelled its Girlboss TV show after just one season. The comedy is inspired by Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso’s autobiography, #Girlboss. Reportedly, Amoruso announced the cancellation in a series of Instagram posts, but either she’s taken them down, or we can’t access them due to privacy settings.
Created by Kay Cannon, Girlboss stars Britt Robertson as Sophia Marlowe. The Netflix cast also includes: Ellie Reed, Alphonso McAuley, Johnny Simmons, Amanda Rea, Melissa Macedo, Michelle Macedo, Kimmy Shields, Norm MacDonald, Dean Norris, and Richard Wharton. Cannon served as show runner and executive produced with Charlize Theron, Laverne McKinnonand, Beth Konoof, Christian Ditter, and Amoruso.
Sophia Amoruso, whose life was the inspiration for the series, shared the news in a series of Instagram stories on Saturday.
“So that Netflix series about my life got canceled,” she wrote. “While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out. It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months. Yes, I can be difficult. No, I’m not a dick. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I’ve learned.”
The series was based on Amoruso’s New York Times best-selling book of the same name. It centers on Amoruso (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 28, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.
