After a successful first season, Netflix has opted to not proceed with “The Society Season 2”. This decision has left viewers disheartened all around the world.
The mystery teen drama show released on Netflix on 10th May 2019. Christopher Keyser was the creator of the show. A second season for the show was planned but it got canceled recently.
Release Date Of “The Society Season 2”
Unfortunately, the show is canceled for a second season because of the coronavirus pandemic. The show was initially renewed for a second season which was slated to release in the late 2020s. The production of the show was apparently impacted by the current situation and thus the show was canceled. The show saw a rise in the budget due to the COVID-19 situation. Also, a large cast is difficult to manage in a pandemic situation.
The makers of the show are pretty upset because of the abrupt cancelation of the series. Though there had been months of conversations and discussions about the challenges of producing in such an environment, it is just unfortunate that because of a large cast and scenes with a fair number of people, it is difficult to carry one with the filming.
The Plot Of The Show
The series revolves around a group of teenagers who must learn to run their community after the rest of the population of the community disappears. The mystery started when the teenagers found that every single person in their town has disappeared after they returned early from a canceled field trip.
