The Society was such a successful Netflix teen drama series that it has drawn comparison with Lord of the Flies. The teenage drama series first premiered in 2019. The plot of the series revolved around a situation where everyone in a wealthy town vanished in a mysterious way leaving behind only the teens who now need to figure out how to survive in the society. The show featured Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Sean Berdy, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jacques Colimon, Olivia DeJonge, and Alex Fitzalan. After a successful first season, there was no news about The Society Season 2, and the fans are wondering what will happen in The Society Season 2.
The series is a sci-fi mystery thriller, and it was a huge hit on Netflix. Netflix gave a green signal to The Society Season 2. However, a lot of time has passed since it first received the green signal, and to date, there is no news about the second season of The Society. Sadly, the plot of Season 2 will stay unknown to the fans due to a sad reason.
The Society Season 2 Is Officially Canceled
Even though everyone was looking forward to The Society Season 2, the second season was officially canceled. The Season 2 of The Society was canceled due to the uncertainty that arose because of the pandemic. Also, during the pandemic, there was an unexpected budget increase which made it challenging to retain the big casts of the series.
The preparation to create the second season was in full swing while ensuring that all the Covid protocols were maintained. However, the makers received a call from Netflix stating that the second season was cancelled. This was an abrupt decision that indeed upset the makers. However, the challenges of working on the second season were something that the makers knew they would face. For instance, the setup of the second season was set for summer, but the filming had to take place during the fall and winter. The conversation regarding the challenges of working in creating a summer environment was going on for months.
The abrupt cancellation of The Society Season 2 further means that the fans will not get any closure. However, while commenting on the same, the writers stated that no one likes an abrupt ending of the series, but there is very little that they can do about it.
While expressing the disappointment, Keyser stated that it feels like they are like small businesses and restaurants facing closure because of the pandemic and won’t reopen again. People all over the country are losing their jobs, and they are a part of this group.
A Petition Is Being Signed For The Society Season 2
The fans were devastated after hearing the news about the cancellation of Season 2. In demand for the second season, the fans who enjoyed the first series started a petition on Change.org asking the platform to renew the series. The petition has 130,000 signatures, including Kathryn Newton.
The petition raises the hope for the second season of The Society. Let’s not forget that we got seasons of Stranger Things even after a gap of three years. Therefore, even Season 2 has young casts, which is very much possible. However, the only problem in making the second season is that the casts and crews involved in the first season have already started working on another season after the announcement that The Society Season 2 is canceled. Therefore, not everyone would be available. However, we can still hope for the second season of The Society.
