Netflix just finished the first season of the comedy series – The Duchess in September 2020. We, therefore, expect that will the announcement of renewal for the show will take a while. The comedy flick that stars Elizabeth Ryan, also created and produced by her is hoped to have season two. As we all know, the streaming service Netflix keeps mum on shows renewal until after its viewing numbers have been scrutinized and analyzed. Although the first season of the show has mixed reviews from different critics, Rotten Tomatoes gave the show a 61% rating, while Metacritic delivered a 35% rating both from a total of 25 reviewers. However, there is hope because Netflix does not usually axe a show only after its first installment.
The Duchess Season 2 Release Date: Is Series Renewed or Canceled for second season? When will it air?
The second season of this comedy-drama was not announced on any airing date. However, considering that the first season was just released, the audience expects a possible air date for the second season would be most likely the last quarter of 2021.
But now we come to know that the series is canceled by Netflix after season one only due to low viewership. So there is no second installment for this sitcom.
Katherine Ryan initially revealed the news on Vicky Pattison’s The Secret To… podcast on Wednesday, saying that Netflix “didn’t want to make any more.” There weren’t enough people who watched it. I believe 10 million people watched it over the course of 28 days, and that wasn’t enough.”
“I feel like it’s a whole lot of effort [and] a whole lot of time to develop a sitcom,” she continued, adding that she’s “not really heartbroken” about the cancellation. It’s a true team effort. And I was ecstatic to be able to attend, but I believe the show speaks for itself. It finished in a way that I liked… For me, it’s fine if it’s on the platform, almost like a movie. I’m a very laid-back person. I don’t want to come across as overjoyed, but I’m glad.”
