We were first introduced to AMC’s NOS4A2 at WonderCon earlier this year. It certainly piqued the interest of those of us who delightfully delve into the dark and supernatural. On a busy Saturday at San Diego Comic Con2019 Executive Producer Jami O’Brien along with author and Executive Producer Joe Hill joined co-stars Zachary Quinto and Ashleigh Cummings to give a little update on this new series.
Currently NOS4A2 is past midway in the season and although the series may have had slow start, it has ramped up the drama and the pace has quickened. At first glance, the story seemed choppy but has smoothed out immensely. As we have progressed through the series, the dynamics of our main characters have continued to add depth to the show.
We have been pulled into the life of Vic McQueen (Cummings) as she discovers her supernatural powers while dealing with the trials of coming of age in a small town that she desperately wants to leave behind.
Viewers, if they have stuck around long enough, have been treated to a chilling Charlie Manx (Quinto). Manx is not the first one on my list to call if I need a babysitter. The twists and turns of Charlie leave me with more questions every Sunday night. I have really enjoyed the last three episodes which gave us more insight to these special abilities of “Strong Creatives.” When asked, both O’Brien and Hill shared that there will indeed be more Strong Creatives introduced this season.
In between the two main characters we are treated to a spectacular performance by newcomer Jahkara Smith along with some terrifying children.
Filled with terrific special effects, outstanding transformation scenes and a possessed classic Rolls Royce Wraith NOS4A2 has been a feast for horror fans.
The entire panel were in agreement that Christmasland was everything they expected, right down to shooting in the bitter, below zero cold. So cold that the actors had difficulties articulating their mouths and digits while filming.
With only a few episodes remaining, we got word that NOS4A2 has indeed been picked up for a 2nd season. Great news for those of us who want to see more Christmasland and hopefully more devious deeds from Charlie Manx.
