Netflix has canceled the detective drama series The Irregulars after just one season, according to a recent report from Deadline. The series was based on the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and produced by Drama Republic, the company behind other projects like Doctor Foster and Black Earth Rising.
The series, which premiered just this year on March 26, followed the adventures of a gang of troubled street teens in Victorian London who are manipulated into solving crimes for the sinister Doctor Watson and his mysterious business partner, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the series doing relatively well for Netflix, the series will not be making it past its initial eight-episode run.
The Irregulars starred Thaddea Graham, McKell David, Jojo Macari, Harrison Osterfield, and Darci Shaw, with recurring roles from the likes of Clarke Peters as the Linen Man and Henry Lloyd-Hughes as Sherlock Holmes.
The drama was written and executive produced by Watership Down’s Tom Bidwell, with Greg Brenman also serving as an executive producer. Rebecca Hodgson also served as a producer for the series, with Johnny Allan, Joss Agnew, and Weronika Tofilska directing episodes.
