Netflix Cancels Pot Comedy 'Disjointed' Starring Kathy Bates After One Season

Last year launched the sitcom Disjointed starring Kathy Bates about people working in a marijuana dispensary. However the show must not have reached "high" expectations because it looks like it won't be coming back.

Netflix announced that they would not be bringing back Disjointed for a second season. The show was unusual for Netflix for both portraying the marijuana industry, but also because it was a multi-camera sitcom, which the streaming service had not really tried before. They were even able to attract Academy Award winner Kathy Bates to the project, so things looked good.

However, the show was poorly received by critics. The show currently holds a 43 out of 100 rating on review aggregator site Metacritic, with many criticizing the show's lame and predictable jokes that largely revolved around run-of-the-mill marijuana/stoner stereotypes and clichés.

Still, Disjointed was one of the few TV shows that portrayed the legal marijuana industry in any way. While meth makers and other drug dealers get glamorized TV portrayals, the cannabis industry has been mostly ignored by studios. So even if Disjointed wasn't the greatest comedy in the world, it's still unfortunate that nothing is around to take its place.

The studio behind Disjointed says they're going to try and sell the show to a new home, so there may still be a chance more episodes are made in the future.

Alberta recently announced plans to stop licensing cannabis retailers until Canada's cannabis supply shortage has been resolved—a move some US experts think is the wrong way for the Canadian province to approach the issue. At the end of November, the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (AGLC), which regulates the province's cannabis industry, said they would temporarily stop issuing licenses for new pot shops. The AGLC says they made that move because the province simply can't get enough cannabis to supply any more stores.
