The Society, a Netflix original series developed by Christopher Keyser, premiered on the streaming service on May 10, 2019.
Season 1 features an ensemble cast that includes Kathryn Newton, Gideon Adlon, Sean Berdy, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jacques Colimon, Olivia DeJonge, Alex Fitzalan, Kristine Froseth, Jose Julian, Alexander MacNicoll, Toby Wallace, and Rachel Keller.
Season 1 was originally renewed, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the show was canceled after only 10.
‘The Society’ Season 2 Renewal Status: Cancelled
The good news is that Netflix announced on July 9, 2019, that ‘The Society’ would be renewed for a second season.
Despite the lack of an official announcement, Deadline reported on April 2 that the show would be returning to Netflix in late 2020. In short, fans were ecstatic and looking forward to the upcoming season with bated breath.
However, on August 21st, 2020, Netflix announced via Deadline that the decision had been reversed and the show will be canceled.
Why Was ‘The Society’ Canceled?
Production of the show was temporarily halted due to the COVID-19 outbreak but was expected to resume shortly.
Everyone on set has been gearing up for their return to work, as several cast members have noted. The COVID scenario, however, may have caused production costs to skyrocket, and Netflix may now be reconsidering its choice.
We’ve made the tough choice not to move forward with second seasons of The Society, and I Am Not Okay With This, Netflix informed Deadline.
“We’re disappointed to have to make these decisions due to COVID-created circumstances, and we’re grateful to these creators,” the statement reads.
“This includes 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 tireless
A combination of “uncertainty about production schedules and managing the availabilities of a large ensemble like The Society” and “unexpected budget rises due to COVID” reportedly had a role in the film’s final decision, as reported by Deadline.
Season One Recap: “The Society”

They intended to go on a field trip but turned around when they realized they couldn’t reach their objective.
However, strange things were happening when they got back to their hometown, and it was completely empty. They must determine the cause of the current situation and make the best of it.
Is There a Trailer for The Society Season 2?
