The Irregulars arrived on Netflix back in March 2021 and the mystical crime drama series was inspired by the Baker Street Irregulars from the Sherlock Holmes stories. The series follows a group of street urchins who are hired by Doctor Watson (played by Royce Pierreson) to solve mysteries. Season one was made up of eight hour-long episodes and fans binged their way through, excited for more.
Sadly it was announced on May 5 that the series has not been picked up for a second season by the streaming platform.
The show made its way into the top 10 most-watched shows and had proven popular with fans of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle tales.
At this moment in time, Netflix has not given a reason as to why the series has been cancelled so early on.
According to Variety, the show clocked up 643 million minutes streamed across all eight episodes.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
