Fans have been waiting for season 3, but unfortunately, according to Netflix’s recent updates, The Mexican horror series won’t be returning for a Season 3. Irrespective of its mixed reviews of it having some loose ends, it does wrap up nicely enough to warrant a watch from start to finish.
Fans understood their cancellation decision when all the official social accounts for the show went dark just over a month after its release. It is a typical case of ghost-canceling, which means that the cast and crew get released from the contract and made available to do other projects but aren’t allowed or able to discuss the cancellation of the show. Many shows have been similarly canceled behind the scenes, including The Club, Green Frontier, Yankee, The Unremarkable Juanquini, The Search, Puerta 7, and many more. For further updates, stay tuned.
