In 2016, Chelsea Handler, whether it's a good thing or not is the Netflix poster girl. It started in January with a docu-series called Chelsea Does and continues on May 11th when she’ll be presenting her new talk show, Chelsea three times a week indefinitely. The former docu-series had a lot of positivity leading some to ask whether it’ll return for a second series. The answer is no and here’s why and how we know.
Yesterday was a strange live stream (?) Chelsea answered questions via the internet yesterday about her talk show. She also addressed one question about the current state of Chelsea Does. Josh Langford from Facebook asked “What happened to Chelsea Does? We need more episodes?” to which Chelsea replies with “Chelsea Does was used as a bridge to inform viewers of what I’m doing on the new show.” She then went onto add “If you like Chelsea Does you will like the new show, that’s the direction I’m heading in.”
As you can see, there won't be another Chelsea Does Season 2. That’s a shame as it was informative and entertaining but what we suspect, given her statements above, is to expect shorter segments featured on the new show where she covers similar topics in the same fashion. The show will likely feature a lot more guests, which would make it a top priority to promote other Netflix Originals. It may also include a lot of segments that were popular on her E! The show was back then.
Chelsea starts on Netflix on May 11th where new episodes will be releasing on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays meaning there’ll be over 90 shows a year on the service. It’s one heck of a schedule and a bold new path for Netflix to be taking. We can’t wait to see what becomes of it.
