HBO canceled one of its original series after just two seasons, despite it earning a coveted perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes.
With Ana Fabrega, Julio Torres, Cassandra Ciangherotti, Bernardo Velasco and Fred Armisen, Los Espookys follows a group of friends in Mexico City who turn their love of horror movies into a business by creating scary situations and convincing people they’re real.
Since its debut in 2019 and the release of its second season in September, the absurd comedy currently has a critical rating of 100 percent.
Though the primarily Spanish-language show managed to win the hearts of critics, it’s largely flown under the public’s radar, which could explain the unexpected cancellation.

The streamer thanked Torres, Fabrego and Armisen “for this imaginative and delightfully bizarre world they have created,” stating, “We are not currently planning a third season, but we would welcome the opportunity to work with this cast and crew in the future.” to work together. ”
Well, although “the best show you don’t watch” (as described by that of the independent Annabel Nugent) won’t go on anymore, she makes compelling arguments as to why you should watch it anyway.
“Everyone Los Espookys Rate clocks in at 25 minutes. Each bite is short, sweet and leaves you wanting more. It’s a novel feeling these days,” Nugent writes.
“In a TV landscape increasingly characterized by mediocre mulch, Los Espookys dares to be different – and is all the better for it.”
Los Espookys is available to stream on HBO Max in the US and Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK.
