Lore Season 3 Release Date
It would be devastating for the fans to know that Amazon has already canceled the third season of the show. Fans would have to say goodbye to their one of favorite shows. Many debates are going on the topic of the cancellation of the show. Well, it usually comes down to money. Were there enough fans of the show? Was the budget of the show enough to go for the production of the third season? The cost of production of this show was very high as it’s an anthology series. There are different storylines in each episode. The costumes cannot be reused and the making of new costumes for each episode for every member is very expensive. Then comes the set design and graphics of each episode. And how can we forget the different actors for each series?
The other problem was the second season was entirely different from the first season. There were many complaints regarding the second season of Lore. It was said that this show is also like every other horror shows on television right now. The first season was fresh but the second season was slightly disappointing.
Lore Season 3 Plot
The first and second season has 6 episodes each featuring new stories in each episode. The first episode was based on disease and medicine. The disease has already spread and the medicine was considered as superstitious as well as science. The consumption of the medicines can be stopped by only making sure that the dead are dead in small New England towns in the late 1800s. The episode also featured vampires and Dracula. The second episode follows Dr. Walter Freeman who believes that the ten-minute procedure is all he needs but ends up in a mental hospital. His intentions are pure but ended up making an entirely new horror story. The third episode is set in Ireland in the 19th century. A person called Michael Cleary believes his wife is replaced by a fairy and this belief led him to do most extreme acts.
The last episode of this season follows a child called Robert Gene Otto who has no friends. One day, he receives a doll as a gift and names her after himself. They become best friends and the boy started to believe that the doll is real while for the others this doll is nothing more than a curse. The first season was entirely based on the podcast but the second season is a lot different than the first. The second season was not well received by a lot of fans.
