Goodbye, Belgrave: Netflix Cancels ‘The Order’ After Two Seasons

How ironic is it that Netflix didn’t order another season of The Order? Not only is it ironic, but it’s also dreadful. After two successful and well-loved seasons of total chaos from werewolves and magic, the streaming giant does not see the dark fantasy-horror in its future catalog.

The Order revolves around the story of a secret society of magic scholars at Belgrave University. Together, they uncover the world of mysteries brought by chaotic wizardry––all while hooking up a handful of times.

The news of the series cancellation was brought up by Dennis Heaton, creator and executive producer of the show, and took it to Twitter to share his thoughts, saying:

For two seasons I was honored to work with an incredible cast and crew on The Order for @netflix. It is one of the best experiences of my career. Unfortunately, we aren’t returning, but I will always cherish the memories and the props I stole. Thank you all for watching.

Heaton even decided to give the fans the closure they needed, especially what could have happened during the third season.

Jack was totally going to raise Alyssa from the dead, but she was going to come back wrong. Like, Pet Sematary wrong. Probably possessed by Zecchia. And a whole bunch of other corpses were coming back with her.

Looks like fans were right all along, Jack was going to be back from the dead––not just the way they wanted him to be alive, though. Either way, Heaton does a good job in servicing the fans both before the series cancellation and after.

Unfortunately, the creatively ambitious series is the latest of the streaming giant’s long list of series cancellations. It’s surprising, though, that The Order lasted for a season considering Netflix loves cancelling series after a season. Unless Riverdale spices things up and gets zombies and magic into the mix, The Order is a special audience will never forget.
