Netflix has canceled its first show in 2021, which is The Duchess. There will not be a second season for it.
Despite coming up with many new series and movies, every month Netflix is also giving up on some of its content. That’s most probably because not enough people watch them. Therefore, the shows become impossible to sustain.
This time it’s a relatively new Netflix Originals comedy series. Unfortunately for The Duchess fans, Netflix is not going to release a second season for it. The series star Katherine Ryan made this known in her appearance on the podcast “Vicky Pattison: The Secret To”. In the episode she was in, Ryan revealed that Netflix did not want to make a second season for The Duchess. She also mentioned how many people watched it and how it was not enough for the popular streaming service.
Katherine Ryan says not enough people watched The Duchess
“[Netflix] didn’t want to make any more. Not enough people watched it. I think something like 10 million people watched it in 28 days, and that wasn’t enough.”
After revealing the cancellation, she talked about her thoughts about the situation:
“I feel like it’s a whole lot of work, a whole lot of time to make a sitcom. It’s really collaborative. And I was so grateful to be able to make it, but I think it speaks for itself. I kind of like the way it ended… I think it’s fine, for me, if it sits on the platform, almost like a film. I’m really chill with things. I don’t want to seem too happy about it, but I’m glad.”
You can currently watch The Duchess’ one and only season on Netflix. It has only six episodes for season 1.
What is the synopsis of The Duchess?
Here’s Netflix’s synopsis of The Duchess:
“Katherine’s a single mom juggling her career, her tween daughter, her relationship with her boyfriend. And pondering getting pregnant with her ex.”
