'Girlboss' cancelled at Netflix

Netflix is firing its Girlboss.

The streaming service has cancelled the comedy series, starring Britt Robertson, after one season, our sister site Deadline reports.

The show — which was based on Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso — followed Sophia (Robertson), scrappy, sassy hustler who realizes that she can buy vintage fashion in secondhand stores, then sell them for hundreds more on eBay.
