Chelsea Handler's 'Chelsea' Netflix show won't return for Season 3

Netflix

After hosting her eponymous talk show on Netflix for two seasons, Chelsea Handler is calling it quits. Handler said she is working with the streaming service on a documentary project. Admittedly, Handler's show got off to a "rocky start" and sometimes received unenthusiastic reviews.

Taking to Twitter, Handler stated: "Like so many across the country, the past presidential election and the countless events that have unfolded since have galvanized me". We don't know if the third season was on the table, but it appears it was Handler's decision to end the series.

"My goal is to be better informed, raise my voice, and participate in a more meaningful way".

The 42-year-old noted that she plans to travel across the country, speaking at colleges and engaging with new people in an effort to "gain a better understanding of our political divide".

Handler said she has partnered with the pro-choice group EMILY's List to "elect more women to public office, register people to vote, and campaign for candidates who are fighting for women's rights".

New episodes of Handler's talk show Chelsea will continued to stream weekly until the end of 2017.

Earlier this year, Netflix has reportedly pulled the plug on some of its much-anticipated shows such as - Girlboss, Sense8, Marco Polo. The Hollywood Reporter indicated the show had been canceled.

"Chelsea" Season 2 is now airing, with Netflix dropping new episodes on Fridays. In those ways, I think you can say Chelsea was a success, but it's also clear this model never really worked well for Netflix's audience. She explained her thinking in a note on Twitter and Facebook.
