Hulu Cancels Original Dramas ‘Harlots’ and ‘Reprisal’

Torrey Hart

Hulu is canceling popular drama “Harlots” after three seasons, as well as thriller “Reprisal” after just one, Deadline reported Wednesday.

“Harlots,” which ended its now-final season in August, came from executive producers Moira Buffini, Alison Newman, Alison Owen, Debra Hayward and Alison Carpenter. Set in 18th century London, the series follows matriarch Margaret Wells (Samantha Morton), who runs a brothel and is set on increasing her wealth in order to provide a better future for her daughters.

“Reprisal,” whose entire first season dropped in December, was created by Josh Corbin and executive produced by Warren Littlefield (Littlefield also executive produced popular Hulu original “The Handmaid’s Tale,” whose fourth season was forced to halt production because of the COVID-19 pandemic). “Reprisal” stars Abigail Spencer as femme fatale Katherine Harlow, who is seeking revenge against a gang – which includes her brother – that tried to kill her.

In January, Hulu SVP Craig Erwich said that the service was “thrilled” with audience reaction to “Reprisal” and was “continuing to evaluate” its performance in regard to getting renewed, Deadline reported at the time.

Other Hulu originals “Castle Rock,” “High Fidelity” and “Normal People” – a wildly popular adaptation of the 2018 Sally Rooney novel of the same name – are still pending renewal decisions, according to Deadline.
