The party from Hell is over: Christmasland has closed its doors.
AMC will not renew NOS4A2 for a third season, with the sad news for the many fans of the supernatural series being confirmed this week by showrunner Jami O’Brien, as reported by comicbook.com.
O’Brien tweeted to the fan base about the cancellation, writing: “I heard from AMC last week. We won’t be making a third season of NOS4A2. It’s a bummer, but I’m grateful we were at least able to finish adapting the storyline for Joe Hill’s terrific novel.”
NOS4A2–which debuted on AMC June 2, 2019–wrapped up its second (and last) season Aug. 23.
O’Brien expressed his thanks and appreciation to everyone involved with the show on his Twitter page. “Congratulations to every single member of our phenomenal team on two seasons of weird and wonderful TV,” he wrote. “I will miss seeing everyone…but I’m awfully proud of all we’ve done together.”
The showrunner also thanked novelist Hill for his “generosity, imagination and support, and for trusting us with all your flawed, complicated and beautiful characters.” O’Brien included fans in his thanks, as well, writing: “Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You made Sunday nights a lot of fun. Hope to do it again with you all somewhere down the road.”
NOS4A2–adapted by O’Brien from the Hill novel for AMC–tells the story of Victoria McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings), a young artist who discovers she has a supernatural ability to track the seemingly immortal Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto). As it turns out, Manx is a vampire who feeds off the souls of children and deposits their remains in Christmasland–a twisted Christmas village born of his demonic imagination where every day is Christmas and unhappiness is against the law.
The second season continued the vampire tale some eight years after the events of Season 1, as Manx seeks revenge against Vic and her son Bruce Wayne McQueen (Jason David).
The rest of the show’s ensemble cast includes Jonathan Langdon, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Virginia Kull, Jahkara Smith and Ebon Moss-Bachrach.
