“Maria Bamford’s Lady Dynamite is a vibrant, subversive, sweet, meta-fictional ride – but also a courageous, boundary-busting and ultimately deep portrayal of a troubled psyche,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.

Season two of Lady Dynamite scored a perfect 100 at RottenTomatoes.com with 14 of 14 critics saying they liked the show.

Netflix did not offer a reason for the show’s cancellation, but Bamford has openly discussed the difficulty of producing a series with a bi-polar disorder.

In related news, ABC earlier this month canceled The Mayor, the rookie comedy starring Brandon Micheal Hall as a rapper who becomes mayor of his California hometown.
