AMC has officially cancelled their horror series, NOS4A2, after two seasons on the network. NOS4A2 premiered on AMC in 2019, where it was met with mostly positive reviews, currently sitting at a fresh 72 percent critical and 82 percent audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The series, which is based on the novel of the same name by Joe Hill, recently aired season 2 on the network, which culminated in a shocking ending.
Showrunner Jami O’Brien announced on her Twitter page that there will not be a NOS4A2 season 3. O’Brien used a series of tweets in order to thank her hardworking cast and crew for their work on the series, author Joe Hill, and of course, the fans that tuned into the series for its two seasons on air. Her full set of tweets are below:
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… 2/4

After the events of season 2, fans were beginning to theorize what to expect from NOS4A2 season 3. This will come as disappointing news considering that there were a wide variety of unanswered questions after the NOS4A2 season 2 finale. Season 2 not only reunited fans with the immortal villain Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto), but also introduced fans to a creepy new character called The Hourglass Man (Paul Schneider), created by Hill himself for the series.
NOS4A2 centered on an immortal named Charlie Manx, who feeds off the souls of children in order to remain that way, and deposits what remains in Christmasland, a world built entirely by his imagination where it is Christmas every day and unhappiness is illegal. However, his world becomes threatened when a young woman discovers she has the ability to track him down. NOS4A2 starred Quinto, Ashleigh Cummings, Jahkara Smith, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Virginia Kull, Ashley Romans, Mattea Conforti, and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson.
