Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, is said to have cancelled a proposed animated television series for Netflix. There is panic in the world, and even the British royal family is not exempt.

Netflix is supposedly so alarmed by the recent and historic drop in subscribers that they’re deleting material left and right. Following the announcement that 200,000 customers had opted out of Netflix, a long-term Netflix shareholder has reportedly sold all of its shares.


Deadline now reports that the animated series Pearl has been cancelled before it had the chance to debut. Those engaged in the show’s development were overjoyed when it was originally revealed last summer. Now, it’s not as bad.

Pearl, a family series co-produced by Markle and David Furnish, was introduced with much hoopla last summer and characterised as a 12-year-old girl’s journey through the lives of a range of powerful women from history. When Markle made the comment, she stated, “Many young women her age are on a similar path of self-discovery, and our protagonist Pearl is no exception. This new animated series honouring remarkable women throughout history will be brought to you courtesy of Archewell Productions, Netflix, and these great creators. There has been a lot of anticipation between David Furnish and myself for the announcement of this special series, and I am thrilled it is now here.”

Boons and Curses and Dyno Daycare, two additional children’s animated programmes, have also been cancelled by Netflix. Both were already in the works when the axe was dropped.


Apple TV+, a smaller and less expensive alternative to Netflix, is putting pressure on the company. While Netflix continues to raise pricing, Disney+ offers a far larger library of material and yet costs less.
