The Irregulars cancelled by Netflix after one season

The series put a supernatural spin on different elements of Sherlock Holmes.

Netflix has cancelled its young adult fantasy drama The Irregulars after one season. 

The decision comes as something of a surprise given that the series scored high viewership numbers and received a generally positive response from critics. It currently sits at an impressive 78% on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. 

In the US, the show debuted at number one on Netflix the week it was released in March 2021 with subscribers streaming it for around 643 million minutes across all of its eight episodes. 

By comparison, Disney+ subscribers streamed about 628 million minutes of Marvel’s latest exclusive Disney+ series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in the same time frame. 

The Irregulars follows a teenage street gang in Victorian London who are recruited by Dr Watson (Royce Pierreson) to solve supernatural mysteries and locate his partner Sherlock Holmes (Henry Lloyd-Hughes), who has become a tortured shadow of his former self. 

It stars Thaddea Graham, Mckell David, Jojo Macari, Harrison Osterfield, Darci Shaw, Clarke Peters and Rory McCann.  

The show was written and created by Tom Bidwell, whose previous credits include the most recent BBC adaptation of Richard Adams’s Watership Down

You can stream the entire first season of The Irregulars on Netflix now.
