We’re one month into 2024, and this year is already proving to be extremely brutal for fans of Max’s shows. Positive reviews and passionate fanbases didn’t stop the streamer from canceling several beloved shows in the past few weeks, starting with these four.

The Flight Attendant

The Flight Attendant put HBO Max on the map when this streaming service first launched in 2020, but that didn’t save it from cancelation. Kaley Cuoco’s wild journey as a reckless flight attendant Cassie Bowden came to an end after two seasons.

Our Flag Means Death

Set during the Golden Age of Piracy, Our Flag Means Death put a delightful (and highly fictionalized spin) on the tale of gentleman-turned-pirate Stede Bonnet and his unusual relationship with the notorious Blackbeard.


All of the shows on this list were abruptly canceled after two seasons, including this Julia Child biopic. It starred Sarah Lancashire as the famed cookbook author, as she prepares to lead her own cooking show The French Chef.

Rap S–t

Rap S–t chronicled the journey of two estranged high school friends from Miami, trying to start their own hip-hop group. Its creator Issa Rae didn’t hide her disappointment following its cancelation, telling Net-A-Porter that she’s noticing that the WOC-led stories are becoming less of a priority in recent years.
