Max Cancels Julia After Two Seasons: Sarah Lancashire’s Heartful Performance Leaves Legacy

Los Angeles, CA – Max, the Warner Bros. Discovery-backed streamer, has made the decision to cancel its series “Julia” after two seasons. This comes as part of an industry-wide trend of cost-cutting measures in the television landscape. “Julia” is now joining “Our Flag Means Death” as shows axed by Max in the same week. However, both seasons of “Julia” will continue to be available for streaming on Max.

Created by Daniel Goldfarb and showrun by Chris Keyser, “Julia” starred Sarah Lancashire as the iconic Julia Child, alongside David Hyde Pierce. The show was not owned by Max, but rather the streaming platform paid a licensing fee to producers Lionsgate Television.

A Max spokesperson expressed gratitude for the creative team and cast of “Julia”, led by Sarah Lancashire, stating that their work celebrated the incredible legacy of Julia Child. The series, which received favorable reviews, has a 93 percent score among critics and a 91 percent rating among viewers on Rotten Tomatoes.

The cancellation of “Julia” leaves the fate of the Issa Rae comedy “Rap Shit” uncertain on Max. The streaming platform’s comedy lineup includes other shows such as “And Just Like That”, “Sex Lives of College Girls”, the recently renewed “Bookie”, and “Hacks.”

In conclusion, Max has decided to cancel the Julia Child-inspired series “Julia” after two seasons. It joins “Our Flag Means Death” as shows canceled by the streaming platform, while both seasons of “Julia” will still be available for streaming on Max.
