Chelsea Handler’s Netflix Talk Show to End After Two Seasons

Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show “Chelsea” is ending after two seasons.

Handler tweeted the news on Wednesday, saying it was her decision to not return for another season. In a statement posted online, she wrote, “Like so many across the country, the past presidential election and the countless events that have unfolded since have galvanized me. From the national level down to the grassroots, it’s clear our decisions at the ballot box next year will mark a defining moment for our nation. For these reasons, I’ve decided not to return for another season of Chelsea, and instead devote as much time as I can to becoming a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen and to focus on projects that have significance to me.”

“I’m excited to share that I will continue my partnership with Netflix, working together on a documentary where I’ll engage with people I don’t talk with enough – people of different ethnicities, religions and political philosophies,” she continued. “Netflix could not be more understanding, and I’m grateful for their continued support. New episodes of Chelsea will continue to stream weekly until the end of this year.”

Read her full statement below.

In addition to the documentary project she mentioned, Handler also hosts the Netflix documentary series “Chelsea Does.” The four part series, which debuted last year, features Handler exploring four topics of personal and universal fascination: marriage, racism, Silicon Valley, and drugs.
