The eight-parter, which has been dubbed a modern-day version of Sex and the City, stars Neil Patrick Harris as Michael, a successful New York-based real estate agent who suddenly finds himself single after his partner of 17 years, Colin, walks out on him.

WATCH: What did you think of the series? 

Fans took to Twitter to praise the new show, with one person writing: "I really really love #Uncoupled and please please please give us S2! In the waves of teenage lgbtq+ stories, the series of middle age gay men is quite refreshing," while another added: "Just saw #Uncoupled. I loved every bit of it. A breath of fresh air on series. @ActuallyNPH is amazing. I missed him on our TV. Better have a 2S coming."

A third person tweeted: "So I've watched #Uncoupled in one sitting and unabashedly loved it. NPH's Michael was of course the focus but they also fleshed out the supporting cast in a very balanced way. I'm invested in everyone's story without any one character stealing focus. Highly recommend."

Other fans were left reeling after the series ended on a major cliffhanger which saw [spoiler alert] Colin tell Michael that he thinks he made a mistake in ending their relationship.

Fans called for a second season

A third fan commented: "Just finished #Uncoupled on @NetflixUK with @ActuallyNPH. Really enjoyable, was fantastic. Hoping there will be another season, as you can't leave a cliffhanger like that," while another praised actor Neil for his performance, adding: "I started watching #Uncoupled this weekend. I only have one episode left and I don't want to watch it, because it'll be over then. @ActuallyNPH you are brilliant in this show!"
