Netflix stubs out weed comedy Disjointed

Netflix has axed marijuana store comedy Disjointed after one season on the platform.

The multi-camera comedy series hosts Kathy Bates as a lifelong advocate for legalisation who’s finally living her dream as the owner of an LA cannabis dispensary.

Disjointed received a 20-episode first season order at the streamer in 2016, with the first half of the season debuting this past August and the second half premiering in January.

Despite its seemingly edgy themes, the sitcom format is closer to creator Chuck Lorre’s other shows such as Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory than most SVOD comedies.

Lorre and Daily Show alum David Javerbaum served as writers and executive producers on the series, with Chuck Lorre Productions and Warner Bros. Television producing.

Lorre is also prepping comedy series The Kominsky Method for Netflix, starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin.
