Last year, the NOS4A2 TV show had a very strong launch in the ratings but the series lost a lot of steam as the first season progressed. This time around, the AMC show is being simulcast on BBC America, giving AMC Networks more bang for the buck. Will the numbers rise? Will NOS4A2 be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
A supernatural horror drama that’s based on the Joe Hill novel, NOS4A2 stars Zachary Quinto, Ashleigh Cummings, Jahkara Smith, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Virginia Kull, Jonathan Langdon, Ashley Romans, Jason David, and Mattea Conforti. From creator Jami O’Brien, the series follows a seemingly immortal being who sustains himself on the souls of children. Season two takes place eight years later and Vic McQueen (Cummings) remains more determined than ever to destroy Charlie Manx (Quinto). Manx, having faced his own mortality, emerges desperate for revenge against Vic. He sets his sights on the person who means most to Vic – her eight-year-old son Wayne (David). 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.

What do you think? Do you like the NOS4A2 TV series on AMC and BBC America? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a third season?
*9/1/20 update: NOS4A2 has been cancelled by AMC so there won’t be a third season.
NOS4A2 is a new type horror story and should definitely be continued with subsequent season(s). It has an excellent spin from the traditional horror shows and provided the writing remains good, this will continue to be a very good experience.
This is another awesome AMC series. Please renew this show!
I love this show , they have taken every thing good away so I sure hope this show stays
I think when a show loses 60% of its audience between seasons, that’s not a good sign of its’ longevity, let alone quality.
