The curse of Britt Robertson has struck again! We love the actress, but girl has the WORST track record in the biz. Think about it: The Space Between Us, A Dog’s Purpose, Mr. Church, Mother’s Day, Jack Goes Home, Tomorrowland, The Longest Ride, Cake, Delivery Man, White Rabbit — those are 10 of her most recent movies, and not one of them has over a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Not one.
And those are just her movies; think of her television series! The only one she’s led that’s lasted more than one season is The CW’s Life Unexpected, which lasted a whopping TWO seasons (26 episodes). Whoa. As for the rest of her TV shows… well, we did mention a curse. Here are six Britt Robertson television programs that lasted only one season, including — we’re sorry to inform you — Girlboss:
Girlboss was supposed to mark the return of Britt Robertson's to serials; she was known for her starring role on The Secret Circle before she started taking over movie screens. Unfortunately, the Netflix series, led by the 27-year-old actress, was recently given the axe.
"So that Netflix series about my life got canceled," said businesswoman Sophia Amoruso on Instagram. "While I'm proud of the work we did, I'm looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out."
"It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent," she added, "but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months. Yes, I can be difficult. No, I'm not a d*ck. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what's happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I've learned."
The show, which lasted 13 episodes, was referred to as "tone-deaf," at its best, and "terrible," at its worst. Makes perfect sense why it won't be coming back for Round 2.
The Secret Circle
Speaking of The Secret Circle...
Yes, Britt is known for the CW drama... but that doesn't mean it did well in the ratings (or in $$$). True, it still, to this very day, has a cult following... but it only aired for 22 episodes! That's only one season!
"I had to ignore Twitter for a couple weeks, because I didn't know what to say to all the fans. It's like, 'Sorry?'" the blonde star told Screener TV.
It's been a handful of years since the program last aired, but fans still hold out hope. There are even petitions for Netflix, and the like, to reboot the tale.

The '70s-inspired CBS series was... bad. Like, totally awful from start to finish. It opened in 2008 to less than 8.6 million viewers (which is not good, FYI), and a 2.5 out of 7 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Yikes.
After a seven-episode decline in viewership, the show was moved from Thursday nights to Friday nights; it was there that it met its imminent doom, with a low of 2.82 million. It was officially canceled in January 2009 after 13 episodes (all of which Britt appeared on).
We're not saying that Britt's the reason behind the demise of this CBS series. But, what we are saying is that the show first aired in October 2009, Britt appeared on an episode in 2009, and the show was dunzo by July 2010.
In fact, even prior to the first year of the 2010s, on November 30, 2009, CBS pulled Three Rivers from its Sunday schedule after only eight episodes aired. The remaining five unaired episodes were eventually released... on Saturday nights. Ouch.
It doesn't matter if the television program is a drama or comedy, 'cause it's proven that Britt's sitcoms can't even survive.
In March 2007, the Rob Corddry-led series kicked off to disastrous ratings, which only got worse as the weeks went on. Fox canceled the show after only three weeks on the air, giving it only a six-episode run. Britt appeared on one of 'em.
We all wanted the 2005 comedy to do well, considering it was being helmed by '90s heartthrob Freddie Prinze Jr. Alas, it wasn't in the stars. Though it was based on FPJ's real life, people weren't really interested in the story.
The sitcom aired for 22 episodes; Britt appeared on two of them.
