Chelsea Handler ending Netflix show to focus on activism

(AP) — Chelsea Handler says she is ending her weekly Netflix talk show after two seasons in order to focus on political activism.

Handler says in a statement that she plans to devote as much time as she can to become “a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen” and take on projects that have personal significance. The comedian adds that her goal is to be better informed and “participate in a more meaningful way.”
