Netflix Rescinds ‘The Order’ After Just Two Seasons

Sometimes good reviews aren’t enough. That seems to be the case with the popular horror series The Order.

Netflix this week cancelled the supernatural series after two seasons and 20 episodes, as reported by This despite a positive reaction from both critics and viewers. The series even garnered several Leo Award nominations–which recognize excellence in the British Columbia film and television industry–for its efforts.

Series creator Dennis Heaton took to Twitter to break the bad news to the faithful. “For two seasons,” he tweeted, “I was honored to work with an incredible cast and crew on The Order for Netflix. It is one of the best experiences of my career.”

Heaton then got to the meat of the message. “Unfortunately, we aren’t returning, but I will always cherish the memories and the props I stole,” he added. “Thank you all for watching.”

The show–which debuted in March 2019–boasts a writing team that includes Heaton, Shelley Eriksen, Rachel Langer, Jessica Harper, Penny Gummerson and Jason Filiatrault.

The Order–starring Jake Manley, Sarah Grey, Matt Frewer, Sam Trammell and Katharine Isabelle–follows college student Jack Morton as he joins the Hermetic Order of the Blue Rose, a secret group that teaches and practices magic. Morton eventually uncovers “dark family secrets and an underground battle between werewolves and the magical dark arts,” according to the official synopsis.
