Meghan Markle’s “Archetypes” Spotify podcast will not be renewed for a second season, The Post can confirm.
A source close to the situation told The Post on Thursday that the Archewell media company launched by Prince Harry, 38, and Markle, 41, didn’t produce enough content to receive the full payout of the roughly $20 million deal the couple signed in 2020.
The news comes after struggling Spotify announced this month it will cut 200 jobs as it reimagines its approach to podcasting.
In a joint statement to The Post, Spotify and Archewell Audio said they have “mutually agreed to part ways and are proud of the series we made together.”
“Meghan is continuing to develop more content for the Archetypes audience on another platform,” an Archewell Productions spokeswoman added to The Wall Street Journal.
The Post has contacted reps for Harry and Markle for comment.
“Archetypes,” which explored the labels that hold women back, was the only project the couple produced for Spotify during their two-and-a-half-year partnership.
The podcast premiered in August 2022.
There were just 12 episodes of “Archetypes,” which featured guests such as Serena Williams, Mariah Carey, Mindy Kaling, and Paris Hilton.
Each episode typically ran about an hour.
Trevor Noah, Andy Cohen, and Judd Apatow appeared on the final “Archetypes” episode, “Man-ifesting A Cultural Shift,” which dropped Nov. 29.
Harry and Markle also signed a deal with Netflix in 2020 for an estimated $100 million.
As for what’s next for Markle, the former “Suits” actress and her WME team may be looking to land film and TV production gigs, brand partnerships, and “overall business-building,” but a return to acting will not be an area of focus.
