Netflix fired 150 employees and dozens of contractors and part-time employees at the time.
Several top-notch creative professionals from the original vertical series, such as Sebastian Gibbs and Negin Salmasi, were asked to go.
The platform also indicated that there would be more layoffs this year after that first group, as the platform tried to adjust to the greatly weakened share price.
A May report said Netflix saw its shares plummet 20 percent after it reported a 2 lakh loss of paid subscribers in the first quarter of 2022, its first subscriber loss in more than a decade.
Moreover, it now forecasts a global paid subscriber loss of 20 lakh for the April-June quarter (Q2).
