Comedian Michelle Wolf's Netflix talk show, "The Break With Michelle Wolf," will not be returning to the streaming service for a second season.

Deadline reported on Friday that Wolf's Netflix series had been canceled only about three months after its first episode aired. The show's last episode was released on July 29.

Wolf has not yet made a statement about her show's cancellation. 

The former "Daily Show" star gained widespread notoriety earlier this year after giving a speech during the White House Correspondents' Association dinner in which she repeatedly slammed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"I actually really like Sarah. I think she's very resourceful," Wolf said at the dinner. "But she burns facts and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like, maybe she's born with it, maybe it's lies."

Some reporters and public figures said her comedy bit crossed a line, but Wolf has continually defended herself. 

Her Netflix show touched on many topics in the political arena. In one of her episodes, she compared U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In another, she led a "salute to abortions" that culminated in her cheering, “God bless abortions and God bless America!"

Netflix is also canceling comedian Joel McHale's show on the platform after a 19-episode run, according to reports on Friday.
