Project not reloading after deleting watch.json file

The project was working just fine, I decided to add a watch.json file to reload on .py files changes and it worked fine, but then when I no longer needed the watch.json file and deleted it, the project completely stopped reloading on any changes even to package.json, I tried running refresh on terminal many times but it doesn’t reload the project or log anything, and the refresh command itself does show the reconnect then connected messages on the top right, but it stays stuck in the terminal until I click ctrl+c

The project is still running, and working fine, but it refuses to restart.
