Published July 18th

Fans of the Netflix series She's Gotta Have It are in for some disappointing news. Less than two months after its season two premiere, it has been confirmed that the series has been canceled.

The controversial show, which saw DeWanda Wise portray the lead character, Nola Darling, was directed by Spike Lee in its entirety and marked his first television project. In total, it ran for 19 episodes.

"Spike Lee is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and we're thrilled he brought the series She's Gotta Have It to Netflix," said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. "While this is our last season, we're very proud that it will be on our service for years to come and excited to be working with Spike on his upcoming Netflix film, Da 5 Bloods."

According to Variety, the man behind the likes of several cinema classics including Do the Right Thing and Jungle Fever has not given up on the show. The Oscar-winner is reportedly searching for a new home for the series.

Taking to Instagram, he wrote, "NOLA, MARS And DA CREW Say IT AIN’T OVAH. YA DIG? SHO-NUFF. And Dats Da “Quintessential Afro Futuristical” Truth, Ruth."
