Spotify and Archewell Audio End Partnership: Uncertain Future for “Archetypes” Podcast

Spotify and Archewell Audio, the production company founded by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, have recently announced the termination of their partnership. The decision comes less than a year after the debut of Meghan’s podcast, “Archetypes,” on the platform. While the joint statement expressed mutual pride in the series they created together, the exact reasons for the split remain unclear. The future of the podcast is uncertain, leaving fans wondering if it will continue on another platform. This development poses questions about the couple’s involvement with Spotify, but they still have other ventures underway, including a significant deal with Netflix


Spotify and Archewell Audio released a joint statement confirming their decision to mutually part ways. Both parties expressed pride in the series they produced together, but they did not disclose the reasons behind their separation. As of now, it is unknown whether “Archetypes” will find a new home on a different platform. Archewell, the couple’s charitable foundation, has yet to comment on the matter, leaving fans eagerly awaiting further information.


While the future of Meghan and Harry’s relationship with Spotify remains uncertain, the couple has other exciting business ventures on the horizon. Notably, they signed a multiyear deal with Netflix, which involves the creation of documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows, and children’s programming. Despite their departure from Spotify, Meghan and Harry’s collaboration with Netflix promises to be a significant platform for their creative endeavors.


“Archetypes” premiered on Spotify in August 2022, focusing on analyzing and challenging the labels and stereotypes that often hinder women’s progress. The podcast featured notable guests, including tennis superstar Serena Williams, Mariah Carey, Paris Hilton, and Issa Rae. In one episode, Meghan shared a personal story about her son’s brush with danger during their tour in South Africa. The final episode, released in late November, explored men’s perspectives on archetypes. While fans eagerly await news about the podcast’s future, its impact and insightful conversations will be remembered.


Archewell Audio’s departure from Spotify comes at a challenging time for the streaming platform. Spotify recently announced plans to lay off around 200 employees, including staff from popular podcast studios Gimlet Media and Parcast. In the early part of the year, the company had already laid off approximately 600 employees, amounting to a 6% reduction in its workforce. The termination of the partnership with Archewell Audio adds another layer of uncertainty to Spotify’s current situation.


The unexpected end of the partnership between Spotify and Archewell Audio has left fans of the “Archetypes” podcast with unanswered questions. While the exact reasons behind the split remain undisclosed, the companies expressed mutual pride in their collaboration. With the podcast’s future uncertain, fans are left wondering if it will find a new platform. Nonetheless, Meghan and Harry continue to pursue various projects, including their prominent deal with Netflix. As Spotify navigates its own challenges, this recent development adds to the company’s ongoing restructuring efforts.
