After two seasons Chelsea Handler will be ending her Netflix talk show. She announced the news Wednesday (Oct. 18) on social media. Her reasoning? She wants to focus more on activism.
“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,” she wrote. “For those 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,” she continued.
