Marco Polo Season 3 is cancelled. Reasons why Netflix chooses to axe the show is still hidden in the big bosses’ sleeves.
However, the thing is, though the network chooses to stop the American drama web series, the network still loses a big chunk of money.
Netflix original TV series, Marco Polo, written and created by John Fusco, a screenwriter and film producer known for his Crossroads, Thunderhearts and Young Guns screenplays.
Though the writer is known for these projects, it shows that his recent venture with Netflix did not charm the viewers at all.
Reports say that the series’ reviews are somewhat a bit heartbreaking. Fans even feels like it should be buried six feet underground as it really hurts how other viewers and critics describe the costly project of Netflix.
As a result, fans wonders if this could be one of the reasons why Marco Polo Season 3 was cancelled.
However, the only update that fans were able to hear from Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos was the series managed “what it was supposed to do,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
On the other hand, based on a reliable source, until now Netflix along with Amazon and Hulu remains mum about the series’ ratings. No one knows how poorly the show’s performance fared or if this is the reason behind Marco Polo Season 3 cancellation.
