However, the distribution right of the show is bagged by Sony Pictures Television streaming show predominantly in the United Kingdom and Canada. Moreover, it is also available on the online streaming platform Amazon Prime on a subscription basis.

Electric Dreams Season 2 Release Date
Sony Pictures Television had plans for the show to make it one of the best in terms of quality. After its release, the response from the people was not in support of their aim. However, the series had a decent response but failed to convert the hard work into results. It is believed that this is the major reason why a second season hasn’t been released after the end of season one in March 2018. But it got even more suspicious when an Amazon Prime spokesperson confirmed that they had neither canceled the contract nor did they renew it. Anthological shows like Electric Dreams are hard to be accepted as there is a lack of consistency from the audience. Some unconfirmed reports are stating that Sony Pictures are planning to change the outlook of the show as well as the genre and develop some other similar shows.
According to sources Sony Pictures wanted to telecast the show on a long-term basis. But it was the reviews from the first season that led Amazon to not show any further interest. Nevertheless, Sony Pictures are also trying to find other broadcasting partners to keep the show running. Therefore based on all the available resources, it is evident that it is extremely hard to predict the future of the show. In addition, there are tons of similar shows which are left untouched for years. As far as Amazon clings on as the broadcasting partner, there is a hope to see the second season part of the show. Moreover, as the fourth year passes on the approach shown by Sony Pictures Television to stay on with Amazon doubles the expectations of the fans.
