AMC Renews Their Supernatural Horror Series NOS4A2 For Season 2
If you haven’t been watching AMC’s supernatural horror series NOS4A2, you’ve been missing out on a great show! The series is based on the novel by Joe Hill and it stars Zachary Quinto and Ashley Cummings.
I’m happy to report that AMC has renewed the series for a second season so this fantastically dark story will continue for at least ten more episodes after Season 1 concludes.
Showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien and executive producer Joe Hill shared the news of the renewal during the show’s panel at Comic-Con and it’s one of those things that slipped past my radar while I was there. But, I’m sharing the news now in case you didn’t hear.
David Madden, president of programming, AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios had this to say:
“This otherworldy series makes remarkable work of Joe Hill’s spine-tingling novel, deftly helmed by Jami O’Brien and with captivating performances by Zachary Quinto and Ashley Cummings and the rest of the talented cast. NOS4A2’ has kept viewers on the edge of their seats since its debut and we are ready to jump right back in to this story for season two.”
“I am so excited for the opportunity to bring the rest of Joe Hill’s amazing novel to television. Joe’s imagination is unparalleled. I love the characters and the world, and our colleagues at AMC have been wonderful partners. I’m grateful to be playing in the NOS4A2 sandbox.”
The story centers on Vic McQueen (Cummings), “a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with Charlie Manx (Quinto), a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children, then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – an icy, twisted Christmas village of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims – without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.”
The series also stars Jahkara Smith, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Virginia Kull and Ebon Moss-Bachrach. The Season I finale of the show airs on Sunday, July 28th on AMC.
