NOS4A2, the vampire series on AMC from Joe Hill and starring Zachary Quinto will not be getting a third season according to a new report from deadline. This is the second big genre show to get the axe after last week’s announcement that Altered Carbon would also not be getting a third run.
News was officially released by Showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien on Twitter.
“Well friends, I heard from AMC last week. We won’t be making a 3rd season of #NOS4A2. It’s a bummer, but I’m grateful we were at least able to finish adapting the storyline from Joe Hill’s terrific novel… CONGRATULATIONS to every single member of our phenomenal team on two seasons of weird and wonderful TV. I will miss seeing everyone back in Little Rhody this year, but I’m awfully proud of all we’ve done together,”
Here’s the official statement from AMC:
“Christmasland may live forever, but NOS4A2 will come to an end with the conclusion of season two,” AMC said in a statement Monday. “We are so thankful to Jami O’Brien, Joe Hill and the entire cast and crew for two seasons of inspired, terrifying and thoroughly captivating and age-defying television. And thanks to the fans for climbing into the Wraith and coming along for the ride.”
While the show’s second season didn’t seem to find it’s footing in the same way that the first season did, the series still has some devoted fans. Don’t be surprised if a well-placed social media campaign sees the series picked up on Netflix, or possibly even on Shudder.
