Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities, one of the most eagerly awaited titles for Halloween, offered us a week of gruesome horror, but when is the Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2? What matters most is whether Netflix will air Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2.
Netflix’s original programs have seen the highest success in the horror category, and the terror has, on occasion, been seriously missing over the Halloween season. Thankfully, Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities gave the Halloween season the much-needed horror dose, so it is natural that people are waiting for Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2. The choice to have a new filmmaker for each episode gives each one its own entertaining and distinctive approach to horror, making this one of the greatest horror anthologies we’ve seen.
Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2 Release Date
As of this posting, Netflix has not made a decision on the ordering of Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2, and it may take Netflix a few weeks or months before we discover the result of the decision regarding the future of the series. We are now awaiting the delivery of the first batch of top ten data to analyze how well the series performed during its first week on Netflix; however, it will take a few more weeks to evaluate how the program performed overall before we can say anything about whether Netflix will extend or cancel.
We shouldn’t be surprised that Netflix chose against restricting the show’s potential by terminating it considering the success of the animated anthology series Love, Death, and Robots. Cabinet of Curiosities would have been a great limited series if it had been an anthology. So, we can now say that there is a very strong likelihood that we will watch Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2.
This left the door open for the Cabinet of Curiosities to be renewed as it was not listed as a limited series, however, because the series is an anthology, if Netflix opted not to renew, they could quietly lock that door. We are hoping that it will not be the case with the 2nd season of this show. The subjective nature of which episodes subscribers preferred above others adds to the enjoyment of an anthology, and Guillermo del Toro and the directors he has selected are spoilt for choice since there are hundreds of short horror stories that might be adapted.
Regarding the future of his anthology series, Guillermo del Toro has not yet provided a statement, and due to his hectic schedule, we might not hear anything about the Pan’s Labyrinth director’s intentions for Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2 for some months. Del Toro has recently been working on his stop-motion animated Pinnichio adaption for Netflix, additionally, he is co-writing and co-producing the Scary Stories to Tell. We are wondering about their plans for Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2.
Cabinet of Curiosities Season 1 Recap
Lionel takes the four characters into a separate room and reveals the actual reason he invited them, and he’s been keeping an unusual pebble in his possession that looks extraterrestrial. Targ and Charlotte find it to be fascinating, Guy displays little interest in the item, and Randall is more irritated that he can’t smoke in the room. Lionel merely replies that he has no idea and was hoping the four would be able to figure it out when they ask him to describe what it is, and the space rock begins to emit a high-pitched sound before something begins to hatch, so the gang doesn’t have much time to argue.
Guy shouts “It’s probing me,” then his skull bursts as Targ’s face melts away, and when Dr. Zahra touches the alien creature while in a trance-like state, her body horrifyingly melts away. To avoid suffering the same fate, Charlotte and Randall flee, but still, in disbelief, Lionel watches helplessly as the alien transforms into a goopy fluid and engulfs him before transforming into a monstrosity. Poor Hector tries to shoot the now-humanoid beast that can speak, but he also meets a horrifying end just like the others.
Finally, Charlotte and Randall are in the car and on their way out of the building, and the Lionel/Alien hybrid creature is still at large, and the final scene depicts it making its way to the city, where it is certain to cause a lot of damage for the people living there. We wonder what will Cabinet of Curiosities Season 2 be about.
Is Cabinet of Curiosities based on a book?
The Academy Award-winning filmmaker wrote a book titled Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions, which was released in October 2013: however, the novel is not the basis for the Netflix original series.
The 1st episode, “Lot 36,” is based on a novella by the director, and the Golden Globe winner also wrote a short narrative, “The Murmuring,” which serves the basis for the final episode.
