This week, Deadline reports on NOS4A2‘s Season 2 renewal, while Zachary Quinto speaks about the show with IGN. Plus, Ashleigh Cummings talks horror with Syfy Wire. Read on for more:
• AMC has renewed NOS4A2 for a 10-episode Season 2 that will air next year, “amid strong ratings” (including ranking as a top 20 cable drama), Deadline says.
• Speaking with IGN at San Diego Comic-Con about what drew him to the show, Zachary Quinto explains, “These are characters that are unique and unexpected and exciting, and this world is so vivid and so special. All of those elements fell into place for me.”
• Ashleigh Cummings explains to Syfy Wire that horror, when it’s done well, can “address really important, big, humanistic, universal issues through a really accessible lens.”
• Decider points out that one particular scene in this week’s episode “was chock full of some amazing horror easter eggs,” including Pennywise from Stephen King’s It and A Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger.
• Syfy Wire quotes Jami O’Brien on NOS4A2‘s mix of humor and horror, “One of my favorite things is when Charlie Manx has to interact with the real world. He’s a man out of time, but he’s still a man – he has to go to the convenience store if he wants an air freshener.”
• Dread Central reports that NOS4A2 will start airing on Shudder in the U.S. and Canada on Aug. 8.
The two-part NOS4A2 Season Finale airs Sunday 9/8c.
