Girlboss, we hardly knew ye! Sad news arrived this weekend for fans of the Netflix comedy series—it's just been canceled after one season. The show, based on Sophia Amoruso's life and titled after her best-selling memoir, Girlboss, did not find much success on the live streaming site. After cutting fan favorites Sense8 and The Get Down, Netflix announced that it would also be letting Girlboss go.
It did not come as too much of a surprise to viewers, as the show faced a lot of public scrutiny. In an Instagram post that she has since deleted, Sophia Amaruso had this to say. "So that Netflix series about my life got canceled," Amoruso revealed.

"While I'm proud of the work we did, I'm looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out. It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months. Yes, I can be difficult. No, I'm not a d--k. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what's happened in the last few years. People read the headline, not the correction, I've learned."
She has since published and kept a post conveying a sunnier outlook on the future of the Girlboss brand. She captioned the "team portrait" (which is a solo pic) "It's a new era."

Even though Girlboss is gone, Amoruso is telling the world that she is still a boss, girl.
What exactly is your business? You know how people flip houses? Well, I flip clothes. I am Britt Robertson, and I'm In Style. Top three girl bosses, well I have to say Kay Cannon, she's the creator of our show, and I just think she;s the coolest. Second girl boss. I mean, Oprah, shout out, she's kind of amazing. But Michelle Obama too. There are so many. [MUSIC] For me what a girl boss sort of stands for is taking ownership of your life, be your own person and not be so suaded by other people's opinion and what they may want from you and just really Do the things that make you happy. So is it not hurting anybody else? [MUSIC] I was so nervous because I didn't know, first of all, what to wear. She really listens and picks up on things. She's very perceptive. She's just way more More complicated of a human being than I thought she would be. I really enjoyed getting to know her because after that we had a brunch together and we went shopping together. And I've now since spent a lot of time with her. But very nervous that first time. [MUSIC] There's just something special about that period of time that was so innovative. Like AIM was huge for me. AOL, which I still have an AOL account Nobody hack me. But I loved it. It felt so throwback and I love that that's a part of the show. [MUSIC] I've had this dream for a long time. I would wanna start a shark training business. I love sharks. And I always thought, okay they train whales at Sea World, this was before I knew SeaWorld was bad. Why can't I just train sharks like they train whales? No I realize that it's a little more difficult to train a shark. but it would have to be like really humane, out in the ocean. I'd be like [SOUND], and then I'd have a shark come up and then we'd do some tricks. Somebody bring people out on a boat and they could touch him. Maybe not touch him cuz I think that's less humane, but yeah that's probably what I do.
