I do not know why Netflix cancels the reveals it cancels
Whether or not the reveals had lots followers and prime viewership or not, is not a requirement apparently.
Technically, they cancelled Bojack Horseman.
Now, Altered Carbon

The primary season aired in 2018 to optimistic evaluations, taking inventory of the 2002 cyberpunk novel of the identical title by Richard Ok. Morgan.
The premise of the present posits a world wherein consciousness will be transferred to different our bodies, and soldier-turned investigator Takeshi Kovacs should clear up a homicide.
A two-star NME review mentioned that “generally the script felt prefer it was written in crayon.“
It continues: “Sure, by the top, it had reached such ranges of batshittery you wouldn’t have raised an eyebrow if the killer was revealed to be a tap-dancing unicorn. However such imaginative and prescient. So many concepts. What a visit.”
The primary two seasons of Altered Carbon are nonetheless out there to stream on Netflix.
