After two seasons, Amazon has decided to cancel the Lore TV show. It premiered on October 13, 2017. Season two premiered on October 29, 2018. Fans of the TV series, some of whom were also fans of the podcast it was based on, are going to be sad.
Lore ran for two seasons; the Vahalla Entertainment and Propagate Content series is based on Aaron Mahnke’s popular 2015-launched podcast. Falling under the Amazon Originals’ unscripted division, Lore included a mix of reenactment animation, narration, and historical documents and footage to shine a light on the true store of the modern vampire legend and more.
On July 28, 2019, the Lore podcast tweeted: “Yes, Amazon finally announced they aren’t picking up the Lore tv show for a 3rd season – and yes, that’s sad. But we were blessed with two seasons of great stories. I’m grateful for my first foray into the world of making television. But trust me…it won’t be my last.”
This was followed by a second tweet: “And obviously, the podcast keeps trucking on without a hiccup, because a podcast can’t be canceled by someone who doesn’t own or control it. It’s just the tv show that’s going away. So…keep downloading this podcast, and I’ll keep telling you stories!”
I chose to put the logo of the Lore podcast into this blog because the podcast is ongoing. The most recent episode of the Lore podcast, at the time I am writing this blog post) was released on July 22, 2019. It is episode number 119, and is titled “Evolution”. The first and second seasons of the Lore TV show appear to still be available to those who have an Amazon Prime account.
