Comedian Chelsea Handler announced Wednesday that she would not return for another season of her "Chelsea" late-night talk show on Netflix, so she can instead focus on becoming a "more knowledgeable and engaged citizen" under President Trump.
"My goal is to be better informed, raise my voice, and participate in a more meaningful way," Handler wrote on Twitter, after being "galvanized" by the 2016 presidential election. "I want to travel the country and visit areas and people I don't know enough about, speak at colleges and listen to students, and gain a better understanding of our political divide."
Handler, a fierce critic of Trump, added that she had joined forces with EMILY's List to help elect more women to public office, campaign for candidates advocating for women's rights, and register people to vote.
Handler will remain partnered with Netflix to produce a documentary based on with "people of different ethnicities, religions and political philosophies" around the U.S., she said.
Handler has been affiliated with Netflix since 2014 when it picked up her stand-up comedy special, "Uganda Be Kidding Me: Live."
She then worked on a documentary series "Chelsea Does" in 2016, before turning her efforts to the streaming service's first talk show.
New episodes of "Chelsea" will be available on Netflix until the end of 2017.
