‘Blade Runner 2049’ Screenwriter Reveals Tips on How Netflix Can Save a Show From Getting Canceled

Still the biggest streaming giant, Netflix experienced a setback earlier this year after nearly a decade-long run. From merely malling DVDs to revolutionizing streaming, the streamer has come a long. In the early days, Netflix brought original programming like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black. However, the number of shows that the streamer produced back then was fewer.

Cut to a few years later, and Netflix now drops a bunch of new content over a single month. But very few of these shows get to see a second season. Netflix has attained a status for pulling the plug despite huge fan outrage. Writer and producer Michael Green has just recently shared some helpful advice for the viewers on how to save their favorite shows.

Michael Green urges Netflix users to binge a new title as soon as it arrives on the platform

Netflix is known to rely on data for the renewal or cancellation of their shows. It generally bases its decisions on how a new title performs in the first 28 days of its premiere. A series that fails to achieve the viewership milestone is generally dropped. Resident Evil and Cowboy Bebop never made it past their first seasons. Fans have often begged and demanded the streamer renew their favorite shows, but the streamer didn’t change its decision. A recent example of this is the teen vampire show First Kill

Michale Green (Logan, Alien: Covenant) took to Twitter to share some helpful tips for saving their favorite shows with Netflix users. He shared that viewers should watch the series in full whenever a new title drops, even if it means playing it in the background. This is to be done as it is crucial for Netflix’s data to record that the new title has been watched during the first four weeks of the premiere.

So instead of saving up a show for later, fans should stream the show as quickly as possible to prevent the streamer from axing it. He also admits that while the firm does offer great creative freedom, it should work on its data recording system and change its method of greenlighting shows.
