Ahead of its Season 1 finale, AMC has renewed supernatural horror series NOS4A2 for a 10-episode second season.
The series, which is based on the best-selling 2013 Joe Hill novel of the same name, made its San Diego Comic-Con debut on Saturday, where cast members Zachary Quinto and Ashleigh Cummings, showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien, and executive producer Joe Hill shared the news of the renewal during the show’s panel. The second season of NOS4A2 will go into production this fall and will air on AMC in 2020.
NOS4A2 tells the story of 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.
“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 Ashleigh Cummings and the rest of the talented cast,” David Madden, president of programming, AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios, said in a statement. “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 2.”
“I am so excited for the opportunity to bring the rest of Joe Hill’s amazing novel to television. Joe’s imagination is unparalleled,” O’Brien said in a statement of her own. “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.”
