Sadly, the series had been facing dwindling ratings compared to its first season, reported Deadline. 

However, the series currently holds a 72% rating on popular review site Rotten Tomatoes, so the show’s cancellation does come as a shock, especially just one week after the season two finale.

Showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien shared the news on his official Twitter page in a lengthy four part post.

She tweeted: “Well friends, I heard from AMC last week. We won’t be making a 3rd season of #NOS4A2.

“It’s a bummer, but I’m grateful we were at least able to finish adapting the storyline from Joe Hill’s terrific novel… CONGRATULATIONS to every single member of our phenomenal team on two seasons of weird and wonderful TV.

“I will miss seeing everyone back in Little Rhody this year, but I’m awfully proud of all we’ve done together.

“THANK YOU to @joe_hill for all your generosity, imagination, and support, and for trusting us with Vic and Charlie, Maggie, Bing, Linda, Chris, Lou, Tabitha, Wayne, Millie, and all your flawed, complicated, and beautiful characters…

“And THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to everyone who tuned in — especially to those who tweeted along with us each week — you made Sunday nights a lot of fun.

“Hope to do it again with you all somewhere down the road… xoxoxo.”

In a statemnet, AMC said: “Christmasland may live forever, but NOS4A2 will come to an end with the conclusion of season two.

“We are so thankful to Jami O’Brien, Joe Hill and the entire cast and crew for two seasons of inspired, terrifying and thoroughly captivating and age-defying television.

“And thanks to the fans for climbing into the Wraith and coming along for the ride.”

Whether NOS4A2 will find a new home on another network remains unknown for now.

Express.co.uk will update this article when more information is available.

In the season two finale, it looked like  Vic McQueen (Ashleigh Cummings)  and Maggie Leigh (Jahkara J. Smith ) had defeated Rolls-Royce aficionado Charlie Manx (Zachary Quinto), but there were plenty of questions left unanswered. 

For example, was Manx really dead?

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly anout the season two finale, original author Joe Hill revealed his ideas for a spin-off or film and potential storylines for season three.

He said: ” Could there be more about Charlie? There’s a graphic novel called Wraith, which I always describe as “Con Air-in-Christmasland.”

“I would love to see that as a standalone movie, so if AMC ever wants to do a spin-off film, like they did with El Camino and Breaking Bad, I’d be all for it. Let’s go!

“But I think, barring something like that, the story now is, who else is out there in this world?

“We know that Maggie is interested in making contact with other strong creatives and that could lead her to trouble.

“There are some good folks out there like Jolene, who we met in season 1, but there are plenty more folks like the Hourglass, and if Maggie comes across someone like that, she’s going to need Vic.”

Fans have taken to Twitter to share their sadness about the show’s cancellation.

One fan tweeted: “ Nooo! Oh my heart is broken. I cannot believe this. Thank you and the actors and crew for giving us a great show. This show was amazing and I’m glad that we created a family as well. Gonna miss this show.”

A second fan commented: “ Terribly disappointing news, but the first two seasons are something I will always cherish. Grateful to have had Vic on my screen for two years. Can’t wait to see what you cook up next!”

A third fan said: “ Oh, man. That’s such, such a bummer. You did amazing work. I’m glad we got what we got, but it would have so nice to get more…”
