It was announced today that Chelsea Handler's self-titled Netflix talk show will not continue after its current second season. Handler broke the news on her Facebook account, posting that she is ending the show in order to devote her time to becoming a more engaged citizen with a focus on projects that will hold significance to her.

Chelsea marked the streaming giant's first attempt at a regular comedic talk show. The show premiered in 2016 with half-hour episodes that were released three times per week over the course of the year. For Season 2, the series shifted to full-hour installments on a weekly basis. New episodes are slated to continue being released at the same pace through the end of this year.

As for future projects, Handler will be continuing her partnership with Netflix with an upcoming documentary that will focus on people of different ethnicities, religions, and political views.
