Netflix has cancelled ‘The Irregulars’ after only one season

Despite some impressive reviews and middling viewing figures, the supernatural Sherlock Holmes-inspired crime drama The Irregulars has been cancelled after only one season, according to reports from TVLine.

The series was set in Victorian-era London and focussed on a group of teenagers working for the classic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle investigators, Dr John Watson and Sherlock Holmes. 

Sadly, for fans of the young vibrant casts adventurous ways, it will not be returning for more following the eight-episode season that premiered earlier this year after Netflix decided they couldn’t see a future in the show. 

Part of the reason for this is owing to the high production costs inherent with making a period drama.

However, a glimmer of hope for fans comes from the fact that Netflix is not always ardent when it comes to canning shows. Earlier this spring, David Fincher revealed that Mindhunter might actually return so it wouldn’t be the first time the show made a U-turn. 

It is also not unheard of for other networks to pick up the show. When The Expanse was cancelled Amazon were quick to strike up a deal and landed the show on their platform. 

As of yet Netflix have not commented on the cancellation.
