After only two seasons on Netflix, Chelsea Handler has announced that she is leaving her show Chelsea to focus her time on political activism.
“Like so many across the country, the past presidential election and the countless events that have unfolded since have galvanized me,” Handler wrote in a post on Instagram. “From the national level down to the grassroots, it’s clear our decisions at the ballot box next year will mark a defining moment for our nation.”
She also added that she wants to devote “as much time as I can to becoming a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen” and speak to people to gain “a better understanding of our political divide.”

Chelsea episodes will continue to stream until the end of 2017.
