Yet another show has been added to Netflix‘s list of cancelations.

According to Deadline, Gypsy is the latest show to sashay away, after just one season. The drama series, which stars Naomi Watts as a boundary-trampling therapist, debuted in late June to unenthusiastic reviews. Our July review wondered: “Does Netflix even care if this show is good? Or did it know this was a turkey and quietly upload it?”

According to Deadline, a writers’ room was already set up for season 2, so it’s not clear when the show was canceled. Netflix did not respond for comment.

In late June, Girlboss was canceled after one season. The Get Down and Sense8 were also axed, though the latter appears to be getting a second life, thanks to its fandom. Bloodline was canceled last year. Quality control has been a big issue for Netflix, as it cranks out head-scratchers like Friends From College and The Ranch. Watts is a major get for Netflix, but maybe this just means she’ll be in more episodes of Twin Peaks.

A more popular Netflix series, the recently released GLOW, has been renewed for season 2.
