Hamish Steele announced the cancellation of the series to his followers on Twitter with a touching statement : “I’ve been holding this news for a while now, hoping that we could reverse it, change it, do something good with it. But unfortunately, I don’t think that’s possible at this time. It’s with a heavy heart. that I’m telling you that Dead End is over. Obviously, we never intended that to be the case. In fact, we had started writing for season 3. We have scripts, designs and plans ready. It was always intended to give these characters the ending they deserve. But unfortunately, the powers that be don’t want it anymore. I want to acknowledge my gratitude to Netflix for commissioning the series and for giving us the freedom to tell this story. We made history together and I couldn’t be more proud of those twenty episodes and every member of our team.” He also thanks the fans for their support and hopes that Dead End or bought by another streaming platform. This is also the wish of the spectators, many of whom express their disappointment with the cancellation of the project.
