Netflix Pulls the Plug on 'Uncoupled' Despite Positive Reviews

It is with disappointment that fans of the comedy series "Uncoupled" will have to accept the news that the show will not be returning for a second season. Netflix has decided to cancel the series, which premiered on the streaming platform on July 29, 2022.

"Uncoupled" was created by Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman, and starred Neil Patrick Harris as Michael Lawson. The plot followed Michael, a gay man in his mid-forties living in New York City, as he navigates the challenges of being newly single after his partner of 17 years leaves him. The series was well-received by critics, holding a 73% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and also received a 75% audience approval rating.

Despite the positive reviews, the series failed to make a significant viewership impact. It only appeared on the Netflix Top 10 chart for one week, debuting at number six. The cast of the series also included Tuc Watkins, Tisha Campbell, Brooks Ashmanskas, Emerson Brooks, and Marcia Gay Harden. The series was produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, along with Darren Star Productions, Jeffrey Richman Productions, and Jax Media.

This news comes as a surprise, as the creators of the show, Darren Star, and Jeffrey Richman, have a successful track record in television, and the show had a strong cast and solid reviews. Star remains in business with Netflix despite the cancellation of "Uncoupled" as the creator of the hit series "Emily in Paris", which has already been renewed for a fourth season.

In a statement, a spokesperson for Netflix said, "We are proud of the series and grateful to the cast, crew, and creators for their hard work and dedication. We have decided to not renew the show for a second season and we thank the fans for their support."
