Looks like we’ve seen the last of NOS4A2.
AMC’s vampire drama has received a wooden stake through the heart, with showrunner Jami O’Brien explaining that the network has officially canceled the show after two seasons. Read O’Brien’s response to the cancelation below.
In previous interviews, O’Brien had spoken about her plans for a possible NOS4A2 season 3, which would have traced the aftermath of Vic and Wayne’s confrontation with Charlie and explored the lasting effects that encounter may have had on their family. The existing seasons caught up with the events of Joe Hill’s 2013 novel, so a third season would have gone beyond the source material and into uncharted territory. That’s always a risky prospect: you could end up with a situation like The Handmaid’s Tale, which took a precipitous dive in quality after reaching the end of Margaret Atwood’s original story, or you could end up with something more like Watchmen, which expanded beyond the original comic and ended up being one of the best seasons of TV of this century.
While the cancelation of a show in this day and age isn’t always as permanent as it once was, thanks to an abundance of streaming services that are always looking to snap up content with a built-in fanbase and a proven audience, it doesn’t sound like NOS4A2 is going to get saved by another platform. The phrase “hope to do it again with you all” makes it seem like the door is closed and O’Brien is already fantasizing about showrunning a different series.
