Chelsea Handler's Netflix talk show will end after two seasons

Chelsea Handler just announced the cancellation of her Netflix show, "Chelsea", after only two seasons. "I've decided not to return for another season of Chelsea, and instead devote as much time as I can to becoming a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen and to focus on projects that have significance to me", she wrote, adding that she aims to "participate in a more meaningful way".

Instead of returning to her show, Handler said, she will speak to colleges across the country in hopes of hearing from students and gaining "a better understanding of our political divide". After traveling in and out of the country, she returned to Sony Pictures to tape episodes of the show in front of live audiences.

Handler said she plans to work with Emily's List to elect more women to public office.

She is also still partnering with Netflix for a documentary about her experiences educating herself on the political climate in the United States.

The comedian said that Netflix has been understanding about her decision and she will release a documentary with the streaming service about her journey.

Handler's contract with Netflix last through the end of 2017 and Chelsea will continue with weekly episodes through the end of the year, according to Handler's statement.

From Handler's language, it seems as though the comedian voluntarily walked away from her series; for what it's worth, The Hollywood Reporter does indicate that it was "canceled" in its own report.

Chelsea Handler is excited about her continued partnership with Netflix. Admittedly, Handler's show got off to a "rocky start" and sometimes received unenthusiastic reviews.

But the talk show host is not quitting Netflix overall as she clarified in her Twitter post that she will continue her partnership with the streaming giant for a new documentary project.

In a surprising turn of events, Netflix is parting ways with its Chelsea Handler-hosted talk show today. It launched in May 2016, with three episodes a week.
