The first part of the series was released on Netflix in July 2020 and gained popularity. However, there is currently no confirmation from Netflix regarding the renewal of the show for another season. Fans are eager to know if there will be a second season of “The Cursed,” but the information is still uncertain.

Will there be season 2?
Unfortunately, Netflix decided to cancel Cursed in July 2021, and the exact reason for this decision is still unknown. Speculation suggests that the show didn’t attract enough viewers, leading to its unexpected cancellation. However, if another platform or network picks up the action drama, there may be a possibility of a second season. As of now, we have to wait patiently for any news regarding the show’s renewal. Additionally, the global production halt due to various factors might delay the release of Cursed Part Two. Nevertheless, we remain optimistic that there may be good news in the future.
Will Cursed Season 2 Ever Happen?
After the cancellation of Cursed, some dedicated fans started a campaign on social media with the hashtag #SavedCursed, hoping that another streaming service would pick up the series. However, the cast members have been released from their contracts, which makes a return unlikely. Although there were plans for content in Cursed Season 2, and the first season ended with a cliffhanger, it appears that Netflix has truly canceled the show. Furthermore, there is only one book available for fans to continue the story, as the creators have not yet made a sequel. However, there are hints that another novel might be in the works. While Cursed Season 2 is highly unlikely, the series had a good run, and the actors have expressed their gratitude for being part of the project even after its cancellation.
