After last year’s hugely successful The Queen’s Gambit, Netflix returns to the well of the limited series in 2021 with Halston. The show, a five-series executive produced by Ewan McGregor and starring him as a titular designer, focuses on the rise and fall of a designer who works, for a time, on luxury, fame and status. ; among her famous clients were actresses like Liza Minelli, who is also a character in the show (played by Krysta Rodriguez).
Based on the book Simply Halston: The Untold Story by Steven S. Gaines, Halston comes to Netflix as one more entry of the $ 300 deal with Netflix from blockbuster Ryan Murphy.
In the five episodes of the show, he explores how the man born Roy Halston Frowick ended up gaining in status and fame to the point that he went by a single name, Halston, and to the point where his brand and his own name became the most valuable of it.

It is worth noting that, for the sake of accuracy, the official Halston archives and family have distanced themselves from the Netflix series, noting its inaccuracy. “The archives and the HALSTON family were not consulted about the upcoming Netflix series which involved a fictional and inaccurate account of the famous fashion designer‘ Halston ’,” the statement says. “The HALSTON archives remain the only definitive and complete source on man and his legacy as a personally appointed custodian of his private roles and effects.”
There will be no Netflix Halston season.
From the start, Halston was advertised as a “limited series” (the series was first announced in January 2019). That means the intention, really, is for the show to be complete.

Now, it’s true that something that is initially billed as a “limited series” doesn’t always mean it will definitely be limited to just one season; the most famous example of this in recent memory is HBO’s Big Little Lies, which returned for a second review after its much-loved first season.
This is a different scenario than Netflix has here with Halston, however, as Big Little Lies is a fictional story and Halston tells the story — and adapts a biography — of a real person. And Halston tells this whole story in its five episodes.
