Netflix has cancelled Lady Dynamite after two seasons. The streaming company has opted not to move forward with Season 3, Variety confirms:
The network did not comment on a reason for this decision. However, series star Maria Bamford, like her character, is living with bipolar disorder, and late last year she told Variety she has had to adjust the schedule of shooting the show to make sure she stays healthy.
“With the TV show, that was generally more than I could do,” Bamford said. “I had a 12-hour turnaround last time, and doing that on such heavy psychiatric meds, I was just half-asleep almost the entire day. They did such a beautiful job last year — they made me a “Bamcave” that I could shut myself into so I could shut out the noise and take a nap. And I got to take a full hour for lunch. They were very kind.”
