Following significant losses and poor reviews, Netflix and The Weinstein Co. have put 'Marco Polo' out of its misery by failing to green-light a third season.
Netflix has decided to cancel its own series ‘Marco Polo’ after only two seasons, it has been reported.
The American streaming giant has opted to axe the scripted drama, bestowing ‘Marco Polo’ with the unfortunate tag of being the first Netflix original scripted series to not be renewed for a third season, according to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday (December 12th).
Made in tandem with The Weinstein Co. and starring Lorenzo Richelmy as the 13th century Venetian merchant who travels to China, with Benedict Wong as Kublai Khan, ‘Marco Polo’ was unveiled in the winter of 2014 to largely negative reviews.

Recently it was leaked that 'Stranger Things' season 2 would indeed see the return of Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, and now we have some more information about the new characters that we are set to meet when the new series arrives on Netflix next year.
'Stranger Things' returns with some new characters
In September we learned that at least three new characters would be arriving for the next season, one of those being a young woman named Roman. She has been described as 'an emotionally damaged, magnetic young woman who suffered a great loss as a child' and will be played by up-and-coming Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen. It's difficult to tell where Roman's character will fit into the story, given that she is not a resident of Hawkins, but she will have something to do with what's going on in the lab.
