May 2 (UPI) — Netflix has canceled “Pearl,” an animated series that was in development from creator Meghan Markle.
The cancelation comes after Netflix shares plunged in April after the streaming service announced a drop in subscribers.
Netflix told CNBC that the cancelation is part of strategic decisions the company is making on animated content.
“Pearl” was set to follow the adventures of a 12-year-old girl who finds inspiration from influential women throughout history.
Netflix will continue to work with the duke and duchess of Sussex through their Archwell Productions company.
