BrainDead Season 2 Release Date: Is The Show Releasing?

BrainDead is a political satire science fiction comedy-drama television series that premiered on the 13th of June 2016. It has 13 episodes with an average runtime of 43 to 44 minutes. Since the movie genre is kinda unique and that does bring a lot of attention and plot to it.

The series was well appreciated and received a rating of 8/10 on IMDb. Furthermore, it received a rating of 3/5 on Common Sense media while Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 65% rating. The audience gave it a rating of 4.8/5 via an audience rating survey and google users gave it an 86% rating.

The cast that held on the show did an amazing job and they portrayed humor in a way that did not go over the top or turn out goofy or uncomfortable for viewers. It just did not have humor it had dreadful situations too which were portrayed well alongside the plotline.

BrainDead Season 2 Release Date


The series even though was appreciated by its viewers was canceled right after the first season completely aired. It was stated that the reason for the cancellation was low ratings. I absolutely am clueless about why it has a low rating as it is extremely humorous (in a positive way) for a political series.

The series even had a four-season arc that would deal with the bugs and the invasion in Wall Street, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood but worse came to worse and the show was called off by CBS. Either way, the conclusion remains the same the series “BrainDead” is not going to have a second season.

Viewers expressed themselves by saying that the show was under-appreciated and had to die a short death because of that. Other than the fantastic actors it also had good theme music and ever-weird horror gimmicks.
