Dead End: Paranormal Park Season 3: Is it renewed or canceled?

Unfortunately, it is canceled. Netflix has confirmed that the third season of Dead End: Paranormal Park is officially canceled. 

The news of cancellation after one season is surprising as the overall reception of the series has been favorable. The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 100% approval rating with an 84% average audience score. Additionally, the series received positive reviews from critics, who praised the animation and the “racially, gender, and sexuality diverse cast.” For its two-season run on Netflix, the show has already entered the top ten list in many countries. In addition to this, Hamish Steele also revealed the cancelation on Twitter, quoting, “It’s with a heavy heart that I tell you Dead End is over.”

“Obviously, we never wanted this to be the case. In fact, we did a writers’ room for season three. We have scripts and designs and outlines ready to go. It was always the plan to give these characters the proper ending they deserve. But sadly, the power that be don’t want anymore,” he added. “Honestly, we were lucky to make it through everything happening in the last few years. And I want to emphasize my gratitude to Netflix for commissioning the show and for giving us the freedom to tell this story. We made history together and I couldn’t be prouder of those twenty episodes and every single member of our crew.” He thanked the fans and Netflix and added that is “working hard” on the third and final DeadEndia book, which he hopes will offer fans some “closure.” Take  a look at the official post below: 

Dead End: Paranormal Park: What could have been the plot of season 3?

The series, which is based on Hamish Steele’s horror-comedy graphic novels DeadEndia and web short Dead End, which features the voices of Emily Osment and Zach Barack, follows the adventures of Barney Guttman, a gay transgender teen boy who finds a new job as a security guard of Phoenix Park and Norma Khan, a 17-year old autistic Pakistani American girl who is also part of the security team. The duo balances their summer jobs at the local theme park haunted house while battling the totally real supernatural forces that dwell within it. 

Together with their guide to the underworld multiplane, a sardonic thousand-year-old demon named Courtney, they face zombie mascots, demonic game show hosts, sleep-sucking witches, and the scariest thing of all: their first crushes. The series could have expanded from the final episode of the second season, “The Watcher’s Test,” if it wasn’t the series finale and left some plotlines which could have been explored further. In the finale, the viewers got to see that, “While Norma, Courtney, and Pugsley lead a daring escape, Barney confronts the Watcher and tries to change the future.” 

The series is produced by Blink Industries, and the cast members of the series who would have reprised their roles if the season was greenlit include Zach Barack as Barney Guttman, Kody Kavitha as Norma Khan, Emily Osment as Courtney, Alex Brightman as Pugsley Guttman, Miss Coco Peru as Pauline Phoenix, Kenny Tran as Logan Nguyen, Kathreen Khavari as Badyah Hassan, Jamie Demetriou as Fingers, Karen Maruyama as Barborah Winslow, Alex Brightman as The Watcher, Michaela Jaé (MJ) Rodriguez as Zagan, Alex Brightman as Temeluchus, Tucker Chandler as Patrick Guttman, Cee Nelson as Vince, Patrick Stump as Josh, and Natasha Chandel as Jennifer Swan.
