Netflix is pulling the plug on the Naomi Watts-starring drama, Gypsy, after only one season. Gypsy only lasted for a single season before earning the company's banhammer, something that perhaps isn't surprising given its relatively mild launch and mixed bag of reviews.

What's more, according to Deadline, which first reported the cancellation, writers had been working on stories for a second season for the past few weeks. She's now enjoying a role within the "Twin Peaks: The Return" series, and will appear in movie theatres in new flick "The Glass Castle".

Based in New York, Holloway secretly infiltrates the private lives of her patients, overstepping personal and professional boundaries.

"Gypsy's" cast also included Billy Crudup, Sophie Cookson, Karl Glusman and Lucy Boynton.

The show was criticized by Romani organizations for the use of the term "gypsy", which many Romani people consider to be an ethnic slur.

Netflix has yet to confirm or comment on the cancellation, but CEO Reed Hastings said in May that the streaming service would be taking a harder look at how they decide to renew shows. But while Watts' intimate therapist isn't coming back to the streaming service after only one season, the gorgeous ladies of wrestling will be stepping back in the ring after their triumphant debut: Netflix has given the go-ahead for GLOW season 2.
