'The Outsider' Canceled at HBO, MRC Shopping Season 2 https://t.co/eN212Et5RN— Variety (@Variety) November 10, 2020
'HBO has made the decision to pass on making a second season of the horror-crime drama, which is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. News of the effective cancelation comes around nine months after the show ended a successful 10-episode first season run. MRC, the studio behind “Outsider,” is set to shop season 2 around to other premium networks and streamers, according to sources.
The news may come as somewhat of a surprise given the show’s strong ratings performance for HBO. The finale, for instance, was watched by 2.2 million total viewers across all platforms, which represented a massive 1 million viewer boost from the premiere. That 83% gain was also the largest from a debut to a finale for any HBO series in its first season.'
