The Society Season 2 has been cancelled by Netflix. We all heard about the renewal of the show ‘The Society’ here and there. A lot of fans are still waiting for the series to be renewed. And personally, I also want the show to be renewed as it had ended without any clear point. Because in Season 1, only one aspect of the mystery has been answered, while the major points remain unclear.
In this post you will read about the specs of the series like Will there be Season 2 of The Society? When will Season 2 premiere? Why did Netflix cancel the show? Because there are many questions in the minds of fans. Like, Will the town’s youngsters ever be able to return to their homes, or will they be trapped there forever? So, read this post till its end.
Will There be The Society Season 2?
No, there will not be another season of this web series. Unfortunately, The Society Season 2 is not continuing. In July 2019, the show was renewed for season 2 but then they announced the cancellation of the show for season 2. Netflix cancelled the production of the show in August 2020.
The Society Season 2 Cast
In July 2019, the renewal updates for the second season were confirmed. And the following cast members were expected to act: Kathryn Newton, Alex Fitzalan, Kristine Froseth, Toby Wallace, Gideon Adlon, Sean Berdy, Olivia DeJonge, Salena Qureshi, Alex MacNicoll, Jack Mulhern, Spencer House, Jacques Colimon, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Emilio Garcia-Sanchez, Grace Victoria Cox, and José Julián.
Why Was Season 2 Cancelled?
Netflix announced the cancellation of The Society Season 2 and blamed the COVID-19 pandemic for this act. Netflix official account on Twitter stated in a post:
“We’ve made the difficult decision not to move forward with second seasons of The Society and I Am Not Okay With This,” Netflix said in a statement on August 21, 2020. “We’re disappointed to have to make these decisions due to circumstances created by COVID, and we are grateful to these creators, including: Jonathan Entwistle, Christy Hall, Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, Dan Cohen and Josh Barry at 21 Laps Entertainment for I Am Not Okay With This; Chris Keyser, Marc Webb, and Pavlina Hatoupis for The Society; and all the writers, casts and crews who worked tirelessly to make these shows for our members around the world.”
Petitions To Renew The Show
All the fans as well as cast members were all dissatisfied. The news spurred a petition on Change.org to continue the show. This petition reportedly has almost 130,000 signatures which demonstrate that The Society Season 2 has a devoted audience and it must be renewed for another show. Star Kathryn Newton signed the petition personally and shared it on Twitter.
“The save the society petition made me feel so happy I signed it Hehe #TheSociety so much love!” she tweeted.
Reactions on Show Cancellation
The actors were devastated by the cancellation of the show, just like the millions of fans. A little bit after the news was announced, star Kathryn Newton, who roled as Allie, posted a screenshot of a Zoom call with the cast. “I am proud,” she tweeted, along with a heart emoji.
Alex Fitzalan, who starred as Harry, posted a series of photos of his time working on the show. He posted an instagram photo of Harry and Allie.
“Thank you all for following along and waiting so patiently for so long. I’m sorry there’s no chapter 2 to finish up this story. BYE HARRY BINGHAM.”
The cast as well as fans were upset after the cancellation of the show and they also posted their reactions on social media. A lot of memes, a lot of posts were shared on Instagram and Twitter. I’ve shared some of them here below. Let’s see the reactions of actors and fans:
The Society Season 1
The Society Season 1 ended up with several cliffhangers. Allie was caught as New Ham’s leader by Campbell (Toby Wallace), Lexie (Grace Victoria Cox), and Harry. Allie and Will (Jacques Colimon) were taken as prisoners. While, Campbell, Harry, and Lexie decided to become New Ham’s newest leaders after arresting Allie and Will.
Grizz (Jack Mulhern), Bean (Salena Qureshi), and others went searching for something beneficial for farming. And they found new, fertile land outside of New Ham. When they returned to New Ham, they were shocked to see Allie and Will arrested. The last scene of the series went back to West Ham. In this scene, Cassandra and Allie’s mother are shown reading a book to children next to a memorial with the names of all the teenagers stuck in New Ham Town.
So, the final scene left us wondering if the teens are actually dead or a part of some social experiment. Moreover, rather than all the questions about why the teens are stuck in New Ham, The Society Season 1 never revealed the father of Becca’s baby. The show just ended without any distinct end.
- Moreover, you can watch ‘The Society Season 1′ here on Netflix.
