Netflix pulled the plug on Spike Lee's comedy series "She's Gotta Have It".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming service on Wednesday cancelled the modern take on the filmmaker's 1986 feature film after two installments.

"Spike Lee is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time and we're thrilled he brought the series 'She's Gotta Have It' to Netflix.

"While this is our last season, we're very proud that it will be on our service for years to come, and excited to be working with Spike on his upcoming Netflix film 'Da 5 Bloods'," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement.

The development took place less than two months after the show returned for its sophomore season, with breakout stars DeWanda Wise and Anthony Ramos.

Lee, who is the creator of the show and owns the IP, is expected to sell the scripted comedy to other platforms.

"She's Gotta Have It" is the latest short-lived series to get the axe at the streamer.
