Are Netflix and other streaming services creating a content bubble?

I was discussing with a friend these days about the possibility/idea where Netflix, and other streaming services, could have being creating a content bubble. Too much content have being generated in the last years, but not all of them seems to be that relevant. I really wanted to have access to “dropped series per users” statistics, but I guess these services will never give this info.

By the way, I am really like the things that are happening because of content streaming: independent projects are being made possible, more original contents (instead of the standard Hollywood script), more dynamicity and so on. The only thing is that bubbles happen and we may be seeing one in front of our eyes.

Or maybe I am just overthinking it?
