Netflix has canceled its adaptation of the Dark Horse Comic book Grendel. The show had been in production and all eight episodes were shot. The producers plan to shop the series around. There has been no report on why Netflix chose to cancel the show.
Netflix continues to expand its relationship with Dark Horse despite this set back and has several projects in the works including “Mind MGMT” and “Revenge Inc.” The streamer also recently renewed “Umbrella Academy” for a fourth and final season.
