Naomi Watts, who was paid $275,000 per episode of the American psychological thriller web television series Gypsy, was likely disappointed in August 2017 when Netflix decided to cancel the series after one season.

It was the quickest Netflix had ever canceled one of its original scripted dramas. While no official reason for the cancellation was given, Gypsy had a 31% top critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The Hollywood Reporter called the characters “forgettable” and the material “subpar” and “dull.”

“Basically, the show you probably want Gypsy to be by the third or fourth episode might end up being the second season, and there’s too much psychobabble to wade through to get there,” Daniel Fienberg wrote in his review.

The final episode of the series, “Black Barn,” ended on a cliffhanger with no resolution at all. Gypsy’s creator, Lisa Rubin, talked to EW in June 2017 about the direction season 2 might take.

In terms of a season 2, in general, it will become more of a thriller. The last few episodes of season 1 are more intense because our commitment was to it being a slow burn. Those first five episodes are about immersing yourself in Jean’s world…

I’m surprised at how many people are with Jean despite what she’s doing, which is part of what I wanted… it sets us up for a season 2. We’re fully in, a lot is happening. Obviously, there’s a lot more escalation. In those ways, it will potentially answer critics.

In September 2014, Naomi Watts attended the Altuzarra for Target launch event held during New York Fashion Week at Skylight Clarkson Square in New York City.

She was joined by Naomie Harris, Keri Russell, designer Joseph Altuzarra, and ‘Suits’ actress Sarah Rafferty.

The then 45-year-old British actress wore a red wrap dress from Altuzarra for Target with a scarf tied around her waist.

Naomi accessorized with Jennifer Fisher jewelry and completed the ensemble with a pair of black Christian Louboutin “Lagoula” leather sandals featuring T-straps, fishnet mesh side panels, and 120 mm heels.
