Gypsy's cancellation comes just as Netflix renewed another new series that launched at the same time as Gypsy, women's wrestling comedy GLOW. He added that there was "a mix" of factors involved in the decision to cancel, but that it was "mostly" the number of viewers.
It's official: the critically-panned Netflix original series "Gypsy", led by Naomi Watts and coming from creator/writer Lisa Rubin alongside "Fifty Shades of Grey" director Sam Taylor-Johnson - won't be making a return to the streaming service, after the company pulled the plug on the show following just a single season. Two other dramas that have been renewed are Marvel's Iron Fist and 13 Reasons Why. Many described it as good enough, but ultimately tedious.
Another Netflix show bites the dust.
The new development is surprising considering that the streaming service was reportedly in negotiations with the producers in regards to a second season of the psychological thriller. That writers room is said to have been live for about four weeks before the bad news happened. Bored with her life and husband (played by Billy Crudup), Watts' character begins to develop inappropriate relationships with people in her patients' lives to see if they're telling the truth in her sessions.
If you hadn't yet gotten around to watching Gypsy, here's a quick summary: the show focused on a Manhattan-based therapist named Jean Holloway.
Gypsy isn't the only show that Netflix has killed off, though. In the recent past, Netflix has also given the banhammer to Girlboss, Marco Polo, The Get Down, Lilyhammer, Longmire, and Hemlock Grove.
