Chelsea Handler is quitting her Netflix talk show after just two seasons to become a "more knowledgeable and engaged citizen."

The comedian announced this in a statement on social media on Wednesday.

"Like so many across the country, the past presidential election and the countless events that have unfolded since have galvanized me," Handler said in a statement posted to Twitter.

"From the national level down to the grassroots, it’s clear our decisions at the ballot box next year will mark a defining moment for our nation. For these reasons, I’ve decided not to return for another season of ‘Chelsea’, and instead devote as much time as I can to becoming a more knowledgeable and engaged citizen and to focus on projects that have significance to me."

Handler added that she would still be working with Netflix but to film a documentary that engages with people of "different ethnicities, religions and political philosophies."

Variety noted that, aside from the "Chelsea" show, Handler also hosts a four-part documentary series, "Chelsea Does," which explores topics such as racism, drugs and marriage.

Handler’s talk show was the first to hit a streaming platform, Vanity Fair noted.

Handler’s decision to leave her show has not stopped critics from airing their views on social media.

One such person is Washington Examiner journalist Alana Mastrangelo who posted on Twitter: "Chelsea Handler quits doing something she's bad at to focus on doing something she's worse at."
