Black Wednesday hit Amazon this week.

The streaming platform has canceled I Love Dick, One Mississippi, and Jean-Claude Van Johnson. The axing of the three original comedies comes a few months after Z: The Beginning of Everything and The Last Tycoon were also canceled.

Hailing from Transparent creator Jill Soloway, I Love Dick starred Kevin Bacon and Kathryn Hahn. Also lasting only one season is Jean-Claude Van Johnson, the action-comedy featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme playing a fictionalized version of himself. The veteran of the group is Tig Notaro’s One Mississippi; the comedian’s semi-autobiographical series ran two seasons.

All of the series were originally ordered by Roy Price, the former head of Amazon Studios, who resigned in October after a sexual harassment claim against him became public. Under the new regime, Amazon is looking to attract a broader audience, which paved the way for its upcoming The Lord of the Rings series.
