Why was ‘The Owl House’ Canceled?

‘The Owl House’ was cancelled for a fourth season, but also, season 3 was cut short with three 45 minute specials instead of a full season. An official reason for the cancelled wasn’t given by Disney, but creator Dana Terrace, has shared some details.

“At the end of the day, there are a few business people who oversee what fits into the Disney brand and one day one of those guys decided TOH didn’t fit that “brand”. The story is serialized (BARELY compared to any average anime lmao), our audience skews older, and that just didn’t fit this one guy’s tastes. That’s it! Ain’t that wild? Really grinds my guts, boils my brain, kicks my shins, all the things. It sucks but it is what it is.” – Dana Terrace, via Reddit.

Budget and pandemic-related production were specifically called out as not the reasons for the cancellation. Many believe that the show was cancelled due to LGBTQ+ representation, but Dana Terrace stated the following:

“While we have had issues airing in a few countries (and are just straight up banned in a few more) I’m not gonna assume bad faith against the people I work with in LA.”
