Despite getting a lot of attention online, supernatural horror series Archive 81 will not be getting a second season.
Deadline speculates that the series, which was based on the found footage podcast of the same name, “did not meet the threshold Netflix had set for the series based on its budget.” James Wan executive produced the series, which starred Mamoudou Athie and Dina Shihabi.
In Archive 81, “When archivist Dan Turner (Athie) takes a mysterious job restoring a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994, he finds himself reconstructing the work of documentary filmmaker Melody Pendras (Shihabi) and her investigation into a dangerous cult. As Dan is drawn into Melody’s story, he becomes convinced he can save her from the terrifying end she met 25 years ago.”
