Netflix has canceled an adult-animation series before it aired, halting production of "Bad Crimes" that was voiced by Nicole Byer and Lauren Lapkus.

The cancellation comes three months after the departure of Mike Moon, Netflix's head of adult animation until he moved to Illumination in July to create a new label called Moonlight.

Netflix had previously dumped several animated projects, including Ava DuVernay's "Wings of Fire," a preschool series, "Antiracist Baby" and "Bone," which adapts from a children's comic book series.

Nicole Silverberg of "Full Frontal with Samanta Bee" created "Bad Crimes," which is also produced by Greg Daniels and Mike Judge, two comedy veterans with a long string of hits that includes the animation series "King of the Hill."

Byer starred in the MTV series "GirlCode" and Netflix's "Nailed It!" Lapkus has starred in the television series "Good Girls" and the movie "The Wrong Missy."

"Bad Crimes" is described as a dark comedy following two FBI agents solving crimes across the country. The producers are shopping the series to other platforms.

Netflix (NFLX) reported it added 2.4 million subscribers when it announced its quarterly earnings on Friday. Netflix had forecast it would add 1 million subscribers and its stock price has surged more than 8% since.

Despite the cancellation, Netflix and other streaming platforms have had success with the adult animation genre. Hulu streams the hit series "Rick and Morty," which started its sixth season in September. HBO Max has streaming rights for the Adult Swim network, which airs popular animated comedies including "Teenage Euthanasia" and "Aquateen Hunger Force."

Netflix recently renewed "Inside Job," an adult-animation conspiracy theory series and continues to stream a number of popular adult animations including "Big Mouth," "Bojack Horseman" and the recently launched "Bee and Puppycat."
