It’s been nearly two years since the second season of Jami O’Brien’s supernatural horror series NOS4A2 premiered on AMC. Season 2 ended on an unclear note, leaving us with a lot of unanswered questions. And since then, fans have been looking around in hopes of NOS4A2 season 3. But is it really coming?
Based on Joe Hill’s novel of the same name, AMC’s NOS4A2 is an American supernatural horror drama series that debuted on the platform in 2019. The series follows a young girl named Vic McQueen, who discovers a mystical bridge on her way home.
Will there be a third season?
The second season of the horror-drama series premiered on AMC from June 21, 2020 to August 23, 2020. After that, fans waited for the announcement of NOS4A2 Season 3, only to be met with disappointment. On August 31, 2020, AMC announced that it would discontinue the horror series after two seasons. Therefore, as far as the official word goes, the show will be canceled and there will be no third season.
What could have happened in NOS4A2 season 3?
Season 2 of NOS4A2 ended with several unanswered questions, laying the groundwork for a possible third season. Vic McQueen will most likely sit in the middle trying to repair the damage Charlie Manx did to every kid in Christmasland in NOS4A2 season 3. The second season introduced Manx’s complicated family. It opened Millie’s eyes to the possibilities of living a life beyond the joyous inscape.
The next season of NOS4A2 could completely shift the focus from Vic McQueen. Instead, think of the children of Christmasland. While she could play a major role in Season 3, it’s unlikely she will. The next chapter of NOS4A2 could have Bruce Wayne McQueen and Millie Manx as central characters. Vic McQueen has discovered that she can use her knife to navigate countless landscapes. Her inventive skills only increase, bringing her closer to the destruction of Charlie Manx. If a third season is made, there will be plenty of opportunities for new characters, creatives, stories and even a new villain.
Who will return in NOS4A2 season 3?
Ashleigh Cummings plays Victoria McQueen, Ólafur Darri lafsson plays Bing Partridge, Jahkara J. Smith as Maggie Leigh and Ebon Moss-Bachrach plays Christopher McQueen. Meanwhile, Virginia Kull also plays Linda McQueen, Zachary Quinto plays Charlie Manx, Ashley Romans plays Tabitha Hutter, and Jonathan Langdon plays Lou Carmody. Additionally, Mattea Conforti casts as Millie Manx, Dalton Harrod as Craig, Asher Miles Fallica as Daniel Moore, and Chris McKinney as Sheriff Bly.
In addition, the series also features Rarmian Newton as Drew Butler, Karen Pittman as Angela Brewster, Paulina Singer as Willa Brewster, Darby Camp as Haley Smith and Judith Roberts as Jolene. When the series is relaunched for NOS4A2 Season 3, we can expect most of these protagonists to return to their roles.
Is Charlie Manx alive?
Vic may still be alive after beating Charlie Manx and completely destroying the Rolls Royce Wraith. Despite being scrapped, the car keeps Manx alive. It is still possible to rebuild it. When it’s fixed, he’ll be allowed to return, as Millie longs to visit her father in Christmasland. She can always enlist Bruce Wayne’s help in reclaiming parts from the Wraith.
Although the car is necessary for survival, Season 2 showed that he does not need it to exercise his exceptional creative powers. Manx was able to channel them without the car when he was a kid. As a result, a very different knife from his childhood could exist to bring him back to continue his agony of Vic McQueen and her family. It doesn’t seem likely that we’ve seen Charlie’s last in the series. So he might be back in NOS4A2 season 3.
