The series “The Gang from Baker Street” was felt to be successful in its home country Great Britain as well as in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. She was in the top 10 for weeks and apparently had a lot of viewers having fun with London kids. Nevertheless, Netflix is now pulling the plug.
Why is that the case? not clear. As usual, Netflix gives no reason for this, so we can only speculate as to why there won’t be new episodes of The Baker Street Gang. The decision comes at least surprisingly quickly, as the series only debuted in March of this month, just two months earlier.
“Gangs from Baker Street” is largely about the world of Sherlock Holmes, who, however, finds himself vegetative, drunk, and depressed. Instead, we mostly have our friend Drs. Watson hires crowds of children on the street to solve supernatural cases. The focus is on two sisters B (Thadiah Graham) and Jessie (Darcy Shaw) and their clicks.
So we experience a wild mix of Sherlock Holmes attitude, teen drama and ghost hunting in the Winchester brothers style from “Supernatural”. Not everyone liked it, many found that Holmes also wanted the setting in Millieu, with others complaining about supernatural opponents who are not only related to Sherlock. Nevertheless, the series “The Gang from Baker Street” was able to win many fans, who really found this mixed-up adventure great. Because the cases were always exciting and the setting in Victorian London sometimes tickled Goose bumps.
Still, “Gang from Baker Street”, originally called “The Irregals”, seems to have fallen short of expectations on Netflix. Presumably, you promised a lot more because you supported the new series with a huge marketing budget. Perhaps anyone expected to have another breakthrough in Netflix, like “Bridgerton”, all of Baker Street in London was hijacked in advance and covered with posters, even underground station entrances The door was provided with a huge advertisement.
Nevertheless, it is a shame that the series is not being given a second season. Many of the perspectives in it were promising, and many of the characters were endearing. Probably could have been a lot better with another season, but now we’ll never find out how it would have gone with the “gang from Baker Street”.
