Why Is NOS4A2 Season 3 Cancelled?

AMC announced on the 31st of August 2020, that NOS4A2 Season 3 was officially cancelled after two seasons. It was a big blow to fans though. The reason behind this is that Season 2 did not receive as much massive ratings as the first season because the audience did not anticipate the story to be cut short.

While there is no official announcement made for why NOS4A2 Season 3 is cancelled, it is very likely because of the decline in viewership and ratings in the midst of Season 2. (The storyline of the novel is covered in two seasons.)

AMC officially announced, “We won’t be making a third season of #NOS4A2”.

Jami O’Brien also broke the same news through a series of unfeigned tweets to the fans. She wrote, “Well friends, I heard from AMC last week. There will be no third season of #NOS4A2.” Along with this she thanked the whole team of NOS4A2 and permanently closed the doors on NOS4A2 Season 3


It is really sad for the fans to hear the news of NOS4A2 Season 3 being cancelled. But what can one do, it is only in the hands of the makers. Though they have blended the original storyline of the novel in two seasons, they were expecting it to be more.
