Netflix is pulling the plug on the Naomi Watts-starring drama, Gypsy, after only one season.
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. For the past four weeks, the writers have been working on storylines and scripts for season 2, but their work will not be seeing the light of day on Netflix, according to Deadline.
Gypsy is a ten-part psychological thriller that follows Jean Holloway (Watts), a Manhattan therapist with a seemingly picturesque life who begins to develop intimate and illicit relationships with the people in her patients' lives. As the borders of Jean's professional life and personal fantasies become blurred, she descends into a world where the forces of desire and reality are disastrously at odds.
The series also stars Bill Crudup (Spotlight) as Jean's husband Michael Halloway, Sophie Cookson (Kingsman) as Sidney, Lucy Boynton (Murder on the Orient Express) as Jean's patient Allison, and Karl Glusman (Nocturnal Animals) as Jean's patient Sam.
Gypsy was written by Hollywood newcomer, Lisa Rubin. The series is directed by Fifty Shades Of Grey's Sam Taylor Johnson as well as Victoria Mahoney and Coky Giedroyc. It is produced for Netflix by Universal Television and executive produced by Lisa Rubin, Naomi Watts, Sean Jablonski, and Liza Chasin.
The news of Gypsy getting the ax comes on the heels of Netflix announcing that the women's wrestling comedy GLOW, which was launched around the same time as Gypsy, has been renewed for another season. Two other dramas that have been renewed are Marvel's Iron Fist and 13 Reasons Why.
