Netflix has been continuing its unscrupulous cull of content, cancelling the Neil Patrick Harris drama Uncoupled after just one series.
Gaining great commercial and critical acclaim, the rom-com tells the story of a man whose relationship of 17 years suddenly breaks down, leaving him as a gay bachelor in his forties. Alongside Harris in the lead role, the series also featured the likes of Tisha Campbell, Brooks Ashmanskas, Emerson Brooks, Marcia Gay Harden and Tuc Watkins, among others.
News of the series’ cancellation, before a key season one plot twist could be resolved, has infuriated fans online, who have taken to Twitter to voice their anger.
One user posed the interesting argument: “Since Netflix has cancelled the vast majority of original series they released last year (1899, Uncoupled, The Midnight Club, Imperfects, Bastard Son & The Devil Himself, Resident Evil, Archive 81, First Kill, Blockbuster etc.) it’s removed the incentive to watch 2023’s new stuff”.
The streaming service has gained notoriety in recent years for cancelling TV shows before they had the chance to thrive, with their most recent victims of the cut being The Chair, The Midnight Club, Inside Job, 1899 and Warrior Nun.
