Creator of canceled Netflix show just fired back at streaming service

Update: Bone isn’t the only show to take the ax from the streaming service lately: Netflix just canceled this show with an 83% score Rotten Tomatoes.

The blows continue to fall on Netflix, as the under-fire streaming service now faces the wrath of the creator of its latest canceled show.

The streamer was in the process of adapting Jeff Smith’s Bone graphic novel series into an anime series, but confirmed last week that the series was axed due to a shakeup in its animation division. The show had been in development at Netflix since 2019, and this cancellation wasn’t the first time a planned adaptation of Smith’s popular comic book series was unceremoniously axed.

Smith himself is clearly not happy with the decision. He recently took to social media to vent his frustrations. In response to Netflix binning its adaptation of Bone, as well as similar decisions over the year from Nickelodeon and Warner Bros, Smith released a short comic that is a clear nod to Charles Schultz, the creator of Charlie. Brown.

In the 10-panel strip, Fone Bone, one of Bone’s main characters, can be seen trying to kick a soccer ball only for the studio (first Nickelodeon, then Warner Brothers and finally Netflix ) removes the ball at the last second. And, if that wasn’t subtle enough, the cartoon ends with Fone declaring “never again.” (Editor’s note: this is not the only drama to come to the public eye in the big red: a star of Netflix’s #1 Show Sunset Strip Just Called the stories on this show are fake).

This comic certainly suggests that Smith has no intention of buying Bone from another studio or network for a fourth attempt at an adaptation. It seems, at least in the short term, that the adventures of Fone Bone and his cousins ​​will be confined solely to the medium of comics. Smith’s frustration with the situation is pretty clear, and to further demonstrate it, he captioned the social media post with one word: “Sigh.”

The response to the post has been universally sympathetic with many fans of the series expressing their own frustration that Bone isn’t getting the anime adaptation he seems perfectly suited for. The original comic book series ran from 1991 to 2004, spanning 55 issues, and gained a passionate fanbase over the years. It also caused controversy for its adult themes, and in 2010 a parent in Minnesota unsuccessfully tried to have Bone banned from all elementary school libraries.

Netflix has faced a storm of criticism over the past few days and this very clear jab at the streamer’s last canceled show of 2022 will surely only add to that. In response to the news that Netflix lost subscribers quarter over quarter for the first time in a decade, the streamer announced that it was exploring several new options to avoid further hemorrhaging, including a tier funded by advertising and a crackdown on password sharing.
