After recently announcing that for the first time in ten years theyd lost subscribers Netflix could potentially lose its reign as the ‘best streaming platform. This is because after the announcement Netflixs share price plummeted. Plus the streaming giant has projected theyll lose another two million subscribers during the current quarter April 2022 to June 2022; a projection thatll most likely prove true as many are thinking of unsubscribing due to the possibility of Netflix globally introducing strict antipasswordsharing measures as well as commercials. In what can be seen as an attempt to save some dollars after a staggering loss Netflix has according to The Wrap fired Phil Rynda – who was essentially head of Original Animation at Netflix – as well as several of his staff members.

Some reports suggest this is because of Smiths infamous Oscars incident but it could also be a nice quick way for Netflix to save a few bucks. Cooking With Paris Im going to be brutally honest here: Im not surprised that Netflix cancelled Cooking With Paris. The series that followed Paris Hilton ‘cooking only went for one season and while it did appear in Australias Top Ten TV Shows during its debut on Netflix AU viewership plummeted shortly after and reviews were rather negative.
