Popular Netflix show cancelled after just one series – leaving fans gutted | The Sun

AFTER just one series, Neil Patrick Harris has seen his popular Netflix show ditched from the streaming service.

The romantic comedy Uncoupled has been axed after only one season which saw him play a New York based real estate agent who is back on the market after recently ending a 17 year relationship.


Uncoupled was created by the same team behind Sex and the City and current Netflix smash hit Emily in Paris.

Despite being a fan favourite, viewing figures appear to show that the programme only made it into Netflix's top 10 programmes for one sole week in July 2022, bringing into question its widespread appeal.

It will come as a shock for fans after Darren Star, the creator behind the show, had previously teased details for the second season.

In an interview in August, he suggested that the storyline of who Kai's birth father is would be answered however it now appears it will fall simply to viewers imagination.

Speaking at the time, he said: “We have strong ideas about that storyline. We almost gave it away in season one, then decided not to. It'll be very surprising."

Despite the show being axed, it appears that leading star Neil Patrick Harris has more than enough to keep him busy.

The actor, who rose to fame for his breakout role on How I Met Your Mother, will soon be appearing in the upcoming 60th annniversary special of Doctor Who.

He is the latest famous face to join the cast of Doctor Who for the special – and he has undergone quite the transformation for the role.
