Netflix series Uncoupled has been cancelled after just one season, despite the rom-com being a firm hit with viewers when it landed last summer.

Starring How I Met Your Mother favourite Neil Patrick Harris, the show came from Emmy Award-winning co-creators Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman - the former of whom worked on Sex and the City, Emily in Paris, and the latter on Modern Family.

It followed a New York City real estate agent called Michael Lawson as he dips his toe back into the dating pool after suddenly finding himself single for the first time in decades when his partner of 17 years walks out.

Along with having to come to terms with losing who he thought was his soulmate, Michael also has to embrace his new life as a single gay man in his mid-40s in the Big Apple.

The resulting premise was one that saw viewers binging the entire first series in one go, with many praising Netflix for finally giving us a ‘middle-aged gay rom-com’.

However, the streaming site has now confirmed to TVLine that the series has been cancelled, meaning we won’t be getting a second season.

At the time of its release last August, fans begged Netflix to continue the story.

One tweeted: “#Uncoupled is so good but… Wait a MINUTE… @netflix with that cliffhanger, you better freaking renew it... so serious.”

Another viewer gushed: “Y’ALL I may just be riding the queer euphoria, but #Uncoupled is super good. I love romcoms. Trashy messy break-up songs. And this is the Sex in the City reboot I actually wanted."

They added: “Also, the modern dating world is the best worst thing that ever happened. So like, I get it.”

The first season left people scratching their heads to try and work out who Kai's dad was - something that Tisha Campbell, who played Suzanne, didn't even know herself.

"I want to know badly!” she told TVLine last year.

"All I know is that he's from Europe. I don't know which country. I know he's going to be fine, whoever he is... [series creator] Darren Star is filming Emily in Paris in Paris right now. I threatened to come visit him and see if I could pick his brain."

TVLine went on to ask Star over Zoom and he said: "We have strong ideas about that storyline. We almost gave it away in Season 1, then decided not to."
