Harry and Meghan have more Netflix content on the way
- The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first Netflix series debuted in December.
- However, it looks like their future projects won't be as personal as "Harry & Meghan."
The second volume of "Harry & Meghan," the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's documentary series dropped in mid-December and provided a talking point for many families over the holiday season.
Across six episodes, the series explored the clandestine early days of their courtship and the challenges that led to them stepping back from their full-time roles as senior members of the royal family and moving out of the UK in 2020.
While royal fans will soon get some fresh insights into the life of the royal couple in the Duke's upcoming memoir "Spare," many have been left wondering if there will be more episodes of the docuseries. But "Harry & Meghan" — Netflix's biggest documentary debut to date — was described as a "limited series," indicating that it was a self-contained series and that Netflix has no plans to commission another season.
However, this is far from the end of the Sussexes' relationship with Netflix as the docuseries was just one small part of the multimillion, multiyear deal they made with the streaming giant in 2020.
According to The New York Times and Us Magazine, the couple agreed to produce a wide range of content — documentaries, docuseries, movies, scripted shows, and children's shows — under their production company, Archewell Productions.
"Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope," the couple said in a statement to the New York Times when the deal was first announced three years ago. "As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us."
They added that Netflix's "unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action."
Here are the upcoming or newly released Netflix projects from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
"Live to Lead," the couple's first follow-up project was released on December 31, 2022.
Inspired by the legacy of Nelson Mandela, the seven-part series "highlights the fundamental values, daily disciplines and guiding principles that leaders employ to motivate others and create meaningful change," according to Netflix's official synopsis.
Each episode is preceded by an introduction from either Harry or Meghan and features interviews with the likes of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Greta Thunberg, Jacinda Ardern, Gloria Steinem, and Albie Sachs, among others.
While the Sussexes have yet to share details about their first project for 2023, it could well possibly be "Heart of Invictus," a docuseries covering the behind-the-scenes story of the Invictus Games.
It was the first program the couple announced they were producing for Netflix and will follow athletes competing at the Prince Harry-founded sporting event in 2022.
A press release posted in April 2021 by the Invictus Games Foundation detailed how the multi-episode series will "join the competitors as they train, and along the way reveal powerful stories of resilience and hope."
"This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year," Harry himself said in a quote provided alongside the press release.
According to Town & Country, Harry will appear on camera and be credited as an executive producer on the series. It's not known how much — if at all — Meghan is involved in the project. Representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Archewell Productions did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
