Amazon Cancels 'Panic' Series After Just One Season

Amazon Cancels 'Panic' Series After Just One Season

The Amazon young adult drama series Panic has been canceled after just one season on the streaming service.

The series was written and created by Lauren Oliver, who also wrote the best-selling novel that served as the source material.

Panic focused “on a small town in America where every year the graduating seniors engage in a competition they believe is their one chance to escape. But this year, the rules have changed — and they must decide how much they are willing to risk in order to get out.”

The cast featured many new faces who are bound to become big stars, including Olivia Welch, Mike Faist, Jessica Sula, Camron Jones, and Ray Nicholson (the son of Jack Nicholson!).

Sources told Deadline that the series did not connect with audiences in the same way Amazon’s previous YA series The Wilds did. The streamer also felt comfortable cancelling the show as the first season told a complete story with a satisfying conclusion, so they didn’t leave fans hanging by never wrapping up the story.

The show’s creator previously talked about possibilities for the second season.
