Naomi Watts’ ‘Gypsy’ Canceled After One Season at Netflix

Gypsy” will not be returning for a second season at NetflixVariety has confirmed.

The series followed Jean Holloway (Naomi Watts), a Manhattan therapist with a seemingly picturesque life who begins to develop intimate and illicit relationships with the people in her patients’ lives. In addition to Watts, the series starred Billy Crudup, Sophie Cookson, Lucy Boynton, and Karl Glusman.

Lisa Rubin wrote the series, which was directed by “Fifty Shades Of Grey’s” Sam Taylor Johnson as well as Victoria Mahoney and Coky Giedroyc. It was produced for Netflix by Universal Television and executive produced by Rubin, Naomi Watts, Sean Jablonski, and Liza Chasin.

The series received mixed reviews upon its premiere in June, with Variety’s Maureen Ryan writing in her review, “[The] series — which derives its questionable and incongruous title from the Stevie Nicks song that plays during the opening credits — just plods along through the minutiae of Jean’s life and lies, going nowhere very slowly.”

This is the latest in a string of cancellations at Netflix. The streaming service has pulled the plug on “The Get Down,” “Girlboss,” and “Sense8” in the past few months. Other recent cancellations include “Marco Polo” and “Bloodline.” However, “Sense8” will air a two-hour finale special that is expected to air in 2018.

On Thursday, Netflix announced that they had renewed the freshman half-hour dramedy “GLOW” for a second season. Boasting “Orange Is the New Black” creator Jenji Kohan as an executive producer, the series tells the fictionalized story of a real-life all-female pro wrestling TV show from the 1980’s.

Deadline first reported this news.
