Streaming Service: Netflix
No. of Season: 1
Katherine Ryan, the creator, writer, and star of The Duchess, revealed in an episode of Vicky Pattison’s The Secret To… podcast last April that the streamer canceled the series after a single six-episode season. “[Netflix] didn’t want to make any more, not enough people watched it,” said Ryan. “I think something like 10 million people watched it in 28 days and that wasn’t enough.”
In The Duchess, Ryan played the role of Katherine, a fashionably disruptive single mom living in London, who was starting to consider having another kid, provided she could find a suitable father for the child first. The series also starred Katy Byrne as Katherine’s daughter Olive, Rory Keenan as Katherine’s off-the-grid ex Shep, and Steen Raskopoulos as Katherine’s new orthodontist boyfriend Eva.
