There has rarely been a more grateful cast and crew to have an almost television show canceled.
No one liked working with the internet star turned actress.
Fame went to her head so long ago she thought she was someone people should bow and grovel before.

Miranda Sings’ ‘Haters Back Off’ Ends After 2 Seasons on Netflix
Netflix is ending “Haters Back Off,” the scripted series starring Miranda Sings — aka Colleen Ballinger — after two seasons.
Variety confirmed Friday that the series has not been picked up for a third season.
“Haters Back Off!” delves into the oddball family life of Sings, a confident, totally untalented star on the rise, who continues to fail upward by the power of her belief that she was born famous — it’s just that no one knows it yet.
Netflix picked the project up straight to series in January of 2016, the first scripted series order for a YouTube star.
The show dropped its eight-episode first season on the service on Oct. 14. It was renewed in December for a second eight-episode season on the streaming service.
In her review of season one, Variety‘s Sonia Saraiya wrote, “‘Haters Back Off!’ doesn’t have the same organic appeal as Ballinger’s bizarre, pastiche-y videos.
The short format and context-less medium of YouTube serves Miranda’s larger-than-life personality well; in an ocean of amateur, self-absorbed content, Ballinger’s Miranda schtick has welcome teeth.
But in half-hour scripted episodes, Miranda chews and chews and chews the scenery, making it difficult to either believe in or laugh at a story about her.” – Source
