This article discusses whether there will be a season 2 of the AMC+ series Pantheon and its renewed or cancelled status. 

Pantheon is an animated series created by Craig Silverstein (Bones), based on a series of short stories by Ken Liu, which can be found in The Apocalypse Triptych. This AMC+ original series follows the introduction of a new technology into the world called Uploaded Intelligence, which allows for a mind to be uploaded to the Cloud. School girl Maddie finds herself in the center of this unusual sci-fi nightmare when her father seemingly contacts her from beyond the grave. Is this a prank or has her father’s consciousness been uploaded to the digital realm?

This highly intelligent and meticulously detailed story comes equipped with stunning visuals and an impressive voice cast. Paul Dano (The Batman) provides voice work as Caspian, a genius hacker, who is somehow caught up in this world of espionage and artificial imprisonment. The cast also includes the talents of Daniel Dae Kim, Rosemarie DeWitt, Aaron Eckhart, Taylor Schilling, Scoot McNairy, Maude Apatow, and William Hurt in his final TV role. It’s a stunningly crafted series that seems to be building a cult following while working below the radar for the time being, but does it deserve a second season?

Will there be a season 2 of the AMC+ series Pantheon – renewed or cancelled status

Status: rumored to be renewed

A handful of news outlets have already confirmed that a second season of the show is already in production, and IMDB has the show scheduled for another season. AMC+ haven’t officially announced the follow-up series just yet, but I’d expect they will do so in the coming weeks. They renewed Interview with the Vampire before the first season even premiered, which shows that they are looking to grow their library of content and have faith in their original series.

I was expecting Pantheon to be a one-off series myself, with the entire story being neatly tied up by the end of the finale. Apparently, there is a decent amount of story to be found within the source material, so hopefully, they can continue to build upon the original story moving forwards. I think the UI storyline has the scope to grow, but I cannot foresee what direction the narrative would go in thus far. As always, we’ll keep you posted on any updates on the pending renewal of Pantheon.

    I was hoping to see a global nuclear war and the end of mankind as we know it!
