    Netflix Cancelled "Tuca & Bertie" And People Are Pissed All The Way Off

    "I have rarely EVER seen a show that has SO realistically represented my experience as a woman."

    Netflix recently announced that it's cancelling Tuca & Bertie after only one season.


    The Netflix original animated series premiered this May 2019 and centered on the lives of two 30-year-old urbanite birds (Think Broad City).

    The Netflix original animated series centered on the millennial adventures of two 30-year-old urbanite birds (Think Broad City), voiced by comedy superstars Tiffany Haddish (Tuca) and Ali Wong (Bertie). The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun voiced Bertie's boyfriend Speckle.

    Since premiering in May, Tuca & Bertie had earned a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating, racked up a ton of critical acclaim, and attracted a loyal fanbase. None of this was lost on the show's creator Lisa Hanawalt, who tweeted about the early cancellation and alluded to Netflix's algorithm as a reason.

    Thank you to everyone who loves and supports T&B, and to everyone who was comforted and felt like this show gave you a voice. I’m hopeful we can find a home for Tuca & Bertie to continue their adventures. #TucaandBertie

    Fans also took to Twitter to call out Netflix for dropping the women-led and -centered sitcom and to demand an immediate renewal via #RenewTucaandBertie:

    it's so rare as a woman to be able to sit through a whole show and feel your spine relax bc ur not bracing for a fat joke at ur expense or a racist joke or a rape joke, to be able to sit and laugh w/o bracing for a hit. #RenewTucaandBertie

    Tuca and Bertie is one of my favorite series. Not only did it show women who were crass and gross and funny, it was a series about loss, family, and recovery. No series explores sobriety like this. #RenewTucaandBertie #savetucaandbertie

    No more go animate looking ass sitcoms about white men, no more leaning heavily on edgy humor and cynicism, no more only seeing depth, heart and experimentation in "kids" shows. Gimme wacky, feminine, sincere, horny adult cartoons that are actually cartoons #renewTucaAndBertie

    #renewtucaandbertie because it is SO RARE to enjoy a fun colorful fantasyland full of loud neurotic girls who are dealing with good shit & bad shit & loving each other through it all

    "Lisa Hanawalt created a relatable yet whimsical world in Tuca & Bertie," Netflix said in a statement. "While Tuca & Bertie won't have a second season, we're proud to feature this story on Netflix for years to come."
