The horror drama will no longer return for Season 2.
November 7, 2023
Word is out that Chapelwaite has been cancelled by MGM+ after one season. Co-creator Jason Filardi took to X with the news, letting fans know that "There will be no Season 2." The horror drama premiered in 2021 and initially received a season two renewal by Epix before the network changed its name to MGM+.
Based on the short story 'Jerusalem's Lot' by Stephen King, the series is set in the 1850s, where Captain Charles Boone decides to relocate his family of three children to his ancestral home in the town of Preacher's Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. Once there, he learns about his ancestors' dark, sordid history and must confront it in order to put a stop to the darkness that has plagued the Boones for generations. A young writer finds inspiration with Boone's arrival, and applies to be governess of the infamous Chapelwaite manor in order to write about the family. This leads her to unravel a mystery that has plagued her own family for years.
I'm afraid Captain Boone's story ends on that beach of weathered, Maine sand. There will be no season 2. Thank you to all the Chapelwaite fans! #Chapelwaite— Jason Filardi (@JasonFilardi) November 3, 2023
