'Gypsy' goes one and done: Canceled at Netflix

Deadline reports exclusively that Netflix has opted against a second season of the psychological thriller GYPSY, starring Naomi Watts.

The cancellation is said to have come as a surprise, as Gypsy writers had been working for almost a month on storylines for the forthcoming second season.

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.

"Gypsy" is the third Netflix show to get the one-and-done treatment in the past few months.

Netflix doesn't release any viewership figures for its shows. Gypsy only lasted for a single season before earning the company's banhammer, something that perhaps isn't surprising given its relatively mild launch and mixed bag of reviews. The Get Down, Sense8 and Girlboss were all axed by the service within the span of a month earlier this summer.

Not lacking any star power, the show also featured Billy Crudup as Michael Holloway, Jean's husband and partner. It is produced for Netflix by Universal Television and executive produced by Lisa Rubin, Naomi Watts, Sean Jablonski, and Liza Chasin.

And there's still some good news for Netflix binge-watchers this week: The streaming giant renewed GLOW, about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (including Alison Brie!), for a second 10-episode season to debut next year.
