DEADLINE – Netflix’s drama series Gypsy will not be returning for a second season. I have learned that the Internet TV network has opted not to proceed with a second installment of the psychological thriller starring Naomi Watts. Netflix declined comment.

The development is somewhat surprising because Netflix had been in conversations with the producers about a second season and the cancellation decision comes after a writers room had been up and running for four weeks, working on storylines and scripts for Season 2.

Gypsy, which marked two-time Oscar nominee Watts’ first starring TV series role, hailed from Universal Television, Working Title and writer Lisa Rubin. It debuted on June 30 to mixed reviews. Gypsy‘s cancellation comes just as Netflix renewed another new series that launched at the same time as Gypsy, women’s wrestling comedy GLOW. The streaming network also has renewed the other new drama series to launch in the first half of 2017, Marvel’s Iron Fist and 13 Reasons Why.

Gypsy centered on 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. As the borders of Jean’s professional life and personal fantasies become blurred, she descends into a world where the forces of desire and reality are disastrously at odds. The cast also included Billy Crudup as Jean’s husband and Sophie Cookson, Lucy Boynton and Karl Glusman as three of her patients. Liza Chasin, Rubin, Watts and Rudd Simmons executive produced.

Entertainment Weekly released a first look at upcoming Netflix series ‘Gypsy’ starring Sophie as Sidney and Naomi Watts. Below you’ll find a still from one of the episodes:

Across the freshman drama’s 10-episode first season, Watts, a two-time Oscar nominee (here venturing into episodic TV for the first time since fronting the short-lived NBC mystery Sleepwalkers in 1997), stars as Jean Holloway, an established New York City therapist who, on paper, has the perfect life: a notable career, a spacious home in the Connecticut suburbs, a successful lawyer husband (Billy Crudup), and a bright young child. What she lacks, however, is restraint. Jean’s insatiable curiosity ultimately sees her skirting ethical lines and blurring the borders of professional reality and personal fantasy, piecing together the fragments of her patients’ admissions while stealthily forging forbidden relationships — some more physical than others — with the people in their lives.

SCREENDAILY – British actress Sophie Cookson has been cast as Sidney in Netflix’s psychological thriller Gypsy.

Cookson, one of Screen International’s 2014 Stars of Tomorrow, will star opposite lead Naomi Watts, who plays therapist Jean Holloway, in 10-part series from Working Title and Universal Television.

Written by Lisa Rubin, the first two episodes of the drama will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson. Production starts in New York at the end of the month and the series will premiere in 2017.

Cookson made her feature film debut in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Secret Service and will reprise the character of ‘Roxy’ in the second installment, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, in June 2017.
