Netflix cancels Uncoupled after S1, Dead End: Paranormal Park after S2

Neil Patrick Harris as Michael Lawson in Uncoupled

Animated horror-comedy Dead End: Paranormal Park and Neil Patrick Harris-led comedy Uncoupled have been cancelled at Netflix.

For Dead End, created by Hamish Steele, the cancellation comes three months after the premiere of its second season. The show follows two teens and a talking pug as they team up to battle demons at a haunted theme park, and perhaps even save the world from a supernatural apocalypse.

“It’s with a heavy heart that I tell you Dead End is over,” wrote Steele in a social media post.

“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 powers that be don’t want any more.

“Honestly, we were lucky to make it through everything happening in the last few years. And I want to emphasise 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 20 episodes and every single member of our crew.”

Meanwhile, Uncoupled, created by Darren Star (Sex and the City, Emily in Paris) and Jeffrey Richman, is ending after a single season.

The project sees Harris playing a New York real estate broker who faces the prospect of starting over again in his 40s after his longtime boyfriend moves out.
