Netflix has just ended another show, and this one is a major bummer
Netflix is saying goodbye to its first foray into late-night talk.
Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to announce that her talk show Chelsea would be ending at the end of the year after two seasons.
According to Handler, the series, which releases a new episode every Friday — a change from Season 1’s three episodes per week — will continue to air new episodes until the end of the year.
Handler was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton, and since the election, she’s continued to be a vocal supporter of grassroots activism and a critic of the Trump Administration and its many abhorrent policies. Handler often used Chelsea to talk about important social and political issues — most recently talking to activist DeRay McKesson and NFL star Reggie Bush regarding the NFL players and their decision to kneel during he national anthem.
But the Chelsea host and Chelsea Does star isn’t totally walking away from Netflix. She revealed that she’s currently working on a documentary for the streaming platform where she’ll leave her “bubble” and connect with people from all over the country to learn about their experiences.
She wrote, “I’m excited to share that I will continue my partnership with Netflix, working together on a documentary where I’ll engage with people I don’t talk with enough — people of different ethnicities, religions and political philosophies. Netflix could not be more understanding, and I’m grateful for their continued support. New episodes of Chelsea will continue to stream weekly until the end of this year.”
While we’ll miss watching Chelsea every week, we’re so excited to see what Handler does next!
