BONE is a popular independently published graphic novel series that is written and illustrated by Jeff Smith.
The books were scheduled to become a new Netflix series, but in April 2022, the show was reportedly canceled.
Why did Netflix cancel Bone?
In 2019, it was revealed that Bone was going to become a new Netflix series, but production was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
"There were a couple of people that worked on some shows that I [asked about] because I watched a bunch of Cartoon Network shows and some Netflix shows. Is this person around? Can we get this person? What's this guy doing now? Or what's she doing? And thanks to the pandemic, I was able to get everybody I wanted," Smith told Polygon in 2021.
"I say thanks because there were people that were in contract, but we were delayed by like, eight or nine months because of the pandemic; [by that time] the contracts were up, and I got everybody I wanted," he continued.
"I don't want to really say who they are, because I don't want to steal Netflix's thunder but, yes. I got my dream team of animation people, and I'm pretty excited about it so far."
Despite Smith's excitement for the project, it was reported in April 2022 that the show had been axed.
The news was first reported by The Wrap, which cited recent changes going on behind the scenes that include executives being fired and multiple shows being canceled.
As of this writing, neither Netflix nor Smith has commented on the cancellation.
Is Netflix losing subscribers?
The news of Bone's cancellation came just days after it was announced that Netflix had lost 200,000 subscribers so far this year.
