Chelsea Handler Announces End of Netflix Show

Chelsea Handler announced via Twitter on Wednesday that she is ending her Netflix show Chelsea after its current season. The comedian, who launched her weekly talk show less than a year and a half ago, wrote that she plans to spend more time focusing on grassroots political action. Handler still plans to work with Netflix on a documentary in which she will “engage with people of different ethnicities, religions and political philosophies” and will continue to stream episodes of Chelsea through the end of this year. Handler has become increasingly outspoken on politics, both through her show and on social media, since Donald Trump’s election.
