The animated drama's planned second season is axed.
January 8, 2023
It is being reported by Deadline that AMC+ has cancelled Pantheon after one season. The cable network has scrapped plans to air the animated drama's planned second season despite production already being completed.
The move appears to be related to AMC Networks' previously announced $400M of cost-cutting on content. A similar situation occurred with '61st Street' a few days ago and 'Moonhaven' last month. With Season 2 of Pantheon already produced, it's possible that the show could resurface on another platform in the future.
Based on a collection of short stories by award-winning author Ken Liu, Pantheon follows a bullied teen who has been receiving help from a mysterious stranger online that is revealed to be her recently deceased father. This is possible because his consciousness was uploaded to the cloud following an experimental destructive brain scan. He is the first of a new kind of being – known as an "Uploaded Intelligence" – but he won't be the last, as a global conspiracy has begun that threatens to ignite a new kind of world war.

In some respects they should play their bankroll and support their viewers. But then again, they are in dire straights and may need to sell their luggage.
That's how Stephen King got famous.
