NOS4A2 Showrunner Confirms AMC Has Canceled Series After Two Seasons
NOS4A2 showrunner Jami O’Brien posted the news on Twitter that the horror series has been canceled at AMC after two seasons.

NOS4A2’s second season picks up eight years after the events of season one. Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings) remains more determined than ever to destroy Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto). Charlie, having faced his own mortality, emerges desperate for revenge against Vic. This time, he sets his sights on the person who means most to Vic — her eight-year-old son Wayne. The race for Wayne’s soul sends Vic and Charlie on a high-speed collision course, forcing both to confront the mistakes of their pasts in order to secure a hold on Wayne’s future.
The series stars Emmy nominee Zachary Quinto (American Horror Story, Star Trek franchise, Margin Call), rising star Ashleigh Cummings (The Goldfinch, Hounds of Love, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries), Jahkara Smith (Into the Dark), Ólafur Darri Ólafsson (True Detective, The BFG, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance), Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Girls, The Punisher, Tokyo Project), Virginia Kull (Big Little Lies, The Looming Tower, Boardwalk Empire), Jonathan Langdon (No Tomorrow, Utopia Falls, Special Correspondents), Ashley Romans (Shameless, I’m Dying Up Here, Hermoine Granger and the Quarter Life Crisis), Jason David (For All Mankind, Room 104, Grey’s Anatomy), and Mattea Conforti (The Super, Power, Viper Club).
Based on Joe Hill’s best-selling novel of the same name, NOS4A2 is executive produced by showrunner Jami O’Brien (Fear the Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels), and Hill. The series is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television.
