Netflix announced yesterday evening that they would be cancelling Spike Lee’s series of “She’s Gotta Have It”.
The series ran for only two seasons but Spike Lee is already looking around at other networks to pick up the series and hopefully continue where we left off. This heartbreaking news came soon after the release of the second season in May.
If you aren’t a fan, the show follows the same story-line as the original “She’s Gotta Have It” that was released in 1986. It outlines the life of Nola Darling and her artsy lifestyle while also shedding light on her various partners that she’s involved with. She refers to herself as a “sex-positive, polyamorous pan-sexual”.

“Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it's personal. And the world won't end. And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers, and realize you don't miss them. And new ones will find you and cherish you. And you will still flirt and paint your nails, dress up and party, because, as I think Emma Goldman said, "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution." And at last you'll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.” #AudreLorde Saying “Until” to Nola Darling today 🕊
“Spike is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and we’re thrilled he brought the series ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ (1986, based on his first feature film) to Netflix,” said Ted Sarandos, Lead Content Officer at Netflix to variety.com . “While this is our last season, we’re very proud that it will be on our service for years to come, and excited to be working with Spike on his upcoming Netflix film ‘Da 5 Bloods.’
Lee’s next film ‘Da 5 Bloods’ includes actors such as Chadwick Boseman, Jean Reno, Delroy Lindo, and Giancarlo Esposito. It’s a story that will be dedicated to veterans of Vietnam. The Netflix Original does not have a release date yet.
