Ahead of its season one finale, AMC today announced tonight out of the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con that it 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 Comic-Con debut today in San Diego where cast members Zachary Quinto and Ashley Cummings, showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien and executive producer Joe Hill shared the news of the renewal during the show’s panel.
"NOS4A2" centers on 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 Ashley Cummings and the rest of the talented cast," said David Madden, president of programming, AMC, BBC America, IFC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios. "’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 two."
The season one finale of "NOS4A2" airs on Sunday, July 28th on AMC. All 10 episodes of the series are available on AMC Premiere, an upgrade option for viewers who want a premium AMC experience and receive AMC as part of their television service. The first season will also soon be making its way to Shudder.
"NOS4A2" is produced by AMC Studios in association with Tornante Television. The series is executive produced by Joe Hill, Jami O’Brien and Lauren Corrao.
