Netflix Cancels Marijuana Sitcom ‘Disjointed’ After Just One Season

Netflix has decided to pull the plug on their marijuana workplace sitcom, Disjointed, after a single season.

Produced by TV veteran Chuck Lorre, Disjointed starred Kathy Bates as a lifelong cannabis activist who achieved her dream of opening a marijuana dispensary. It was created by former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum and Warner Bros.

The show’s demise comes on the heels of Netflix releasing the second batch of episodes from Season 1. Disjointed received disappointing reviews from the comedy, TV, and cannabis communities, which has been the explanation for its cancellation. “Early indications demonstrate a show out of touch and tonally confused,” I wrote last year.

However, the studio plans to shop the show elsewhere, according to Deadline. Whether it will find a landing spot remains to be seen, though cannabis’ status as a trending topic could help the show’s chances.

Outside of Bates, Disjointed’s cast featured Aaron Moten, Elizabeth Alderfer, Tone Bell, Elizabeth Ho, Dougie Baldwin, and Betsy Sodaro. Chris Redd was also on the show, though he left to join Saturday Night Live.
