Chelsea Handler just announced on Facebook that she will not be returning for another season of Chelsea, her weekly Netflix talk show. Handler said she is planning to focus on activism, write a book and partner with Netflix on an original documentary that highlights her perspective on the current political climate.
Chelsea marked Netflix’s foray into the comedy talk show arena. New half-hour episodes were released three times a week in Season 1 before Handler switched to an hourlong weekly show format in the current second season. The show developed a following as Handler’s fans found her on the new platform, though it had a hard time breaking out in a very crowded comedy talk show space. Under Handler’s rich deal with Netflix, Handler also did the Chelsea Does documentary series, which was well received.
