Should Netflix revive 'She's Gotta Have It'?

Netflix has decided to cancel Spike Lee's "She's Gotta Have It" and fans are divided. The show follows the life of a sexually fluid woman living in Brooklyn as she navigates relationships and being an artist. The show kicked off in 2017 and is based on Lee's first film with the same name. It only survived two seasons and some say the show is riddled with tropes and stereotypes. But others argue the series was beautiful and shed light on important issues like gentrification and sexuality. Did Netflix make a mistake?

Fans are disappointed to see the series go. One aspect that sets "She's Gotta Have It" apart from other shows is its beautiful imagery and fearlessness. During the intro Lee flashes photos of old and new Brooklyn and uses colors to show how the borough has transitioned racially and culturally over the years.

Critics say the series struggled in its second season and sets women back. According to The Atlantic:

She’s Gotta Have It also has yet to shake its strangely regressive view of women. The series presents mawkish lines of dialogue that seem more like placeholder text than words people might actually say to each other. (In one scene, Nola is in bed with a woman named Opal Gilstrap; the latter punctuates their post-coital bliss with the painful sentence, “Nola Darling, you’ve been Opal Gilstrapped.”) The show is also palpably judgmental of women whose decisions fall outside the Instagram-ready shenanigans Nola gets herself into.
