Netflix U-turn as streamer saves beloved comedy from axe after mass backlash from fans | The Sun
NETFLIX has decided to save a beloved comedy show from being cancelled after it came under fire recently from fans.
It comes just days after viewers were "cancelling subscriptions" as the fan-favourite TV series was axed from the streaming site.
Bosses had announced that popular TV show Peep Show will be removed from Netflix UK in September.
Fans were left raging about the news and aired their frustration on social media.
But now the streaming giant has done a U-turn and decided to keep the popular British comedy series.
A fan took to X, formerly known as Twitter to ask: "The date warning badge has now been removed from Peep Show…can you confirm, Netflix?"

Fans were relieved to find out the beloved show will remain.
One wrote: "I see. You were lampooning us. It was a simple lampoon."
A second penned: "You had us for a second Netflix."
