Celeste Barber has launched a scathing attack against streaming giant Netflix after it was announced that they were canceling comedy series Wellmania after one season.

The 41-year-old comedian posted a video on Instagram on Tuesday in which he addressed the shock cancellation and didn’t mince words when blaming.

’Hi guys WellMania will not be renewed for another season. Netflix said it’s all about the numbers. Of course, she started.

’I thought it was smashed, but I didn’t understand how it worked. Thank you for the love and support throughout the show. The way it was received was amazing.

’A lot of you saw yourself in my character and said you wanted to see her, but this industry is kind of bulls**t. So go and watch Friends, but not on Netflix,’ she snapped.
