The tennis documentary series “Break Point” crushed in its first season on NetFlix.

So much so, that the streaming giant brought it back for Season Two with eyes on several more seasons to follow.

But the second season’s dismal ratings have caused NetFlix to abruptly announce the show has been cancelled.

Featuring behind-the-scenes footage of top-ranked players like Ons Jabeur, Aryna Sabalenka, Nick Kyrgios and Taylor Fritz, the series initially struck a nerve with viewers because of its unvarnished look at the psychological, physical and emotional toll the tour takes on athletes.

But the second season failed to connect with viewers, many complaining they saw little difference in Seasons 1 and 2.

As a result, the show never charted in the Top Ten.

Behind the scenes, its rumored that producers of the program had far too many hurdles to leap in order to get access to players like Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek.

Not only that, but players began to resent the infringement of cameras on their personal space. The reality-style was found to be too intrusive and ended up revealing personal moments that some players would prefer to keep to themselves.
