MGM+ Renews John Griffin-Created Sci-Fi Horror Series “FROM” for a Third Season 

MGM+ has confirmed ordering a 10-episode third season of the ever-increasingly popular contemporary sci-fi horror series “From”. Created and executive produced by John Griffin (“Crater”) and executive produced by showrunner Jeff Pinkner (“Lost,” “Alias,” “Fringe”) and director Jack Bender (“Lost,” “Game of Thrones”), the series gradually reveals the mysteries behind a nightmarish city that ensnares anyone who passes through.

A third season was very much on the cards given that it is the second most-watched series in the premium network’s history behind the Emmy Award-winning “Godfather of Harlem”, starring Forest Whitaker and co-created by Chris Brancato and Paul Eckstein (“Narcos”).

The series stars Harold Perrineau (“Lost”) and an ensemble cast that includes Catalina Sandino Moreno (Maria Full of Grace, “The Affair”), Eion Bailey (“Band of Brothers,” “Once Upon a Time”), Hannah Cheramy (Under Wraps, “Van Helsing”), Simon Webster (“Strays”), Ricky He (“The Good Doctor”), Chloe Van Landschoot (“Charity,” “Skin”), Corteon Moore (“Utopia Falls”), Pegah Ghafoori (The Perfect Wedding), David Alpay (“Castle Rock”), Elizabeth Saunders (“Clarice”), Elizabeth Moy, Avery Konrad (“Honor Society”) and Scott McCord (“East of Middle West”). Joining the second season ensemble were Nathan D. Simmons (“Diggstown,” “This Hour Has 22 Minutes”), Kaelen Ohm (Hit & Run, Eumenides Falls), Angela Moore (“A Series of Unfortunate Events,” Maid), A.J. Simmons (“Reacher”) and Deborah Grover (My Next Door Nightmare, “Jann”).

After series two’s dramatic cliffhanger, escape becomes a tantalising and very real possibility as the true nature of the city emerges and the townspeople take an offensive stance against the myriad horrors surrounding them. The series is scheduled to return in 2024.

Commenting on the renewal, Michael Wright, head of MGM+ said, “The first two seasons of FROM captivated critics and terrified and engaged fans, who have formed a thriving online community that is trying to put the pieces together week by week as the secrets of the nightmarish town—and possibly beyond—are slowly revealed … We can’t wait for fans to see the surprises ahead in Season Three, which promises more scares and mysteries, but also more answers.” 

“We’re so grateful for the support of our fans and FROMily this season. We have a lot more story to tell … and shocking, weird roads to take you on, with plenty of answers along the way,” added Jack Bender, executive producer and director. 

“From” is a co-production between MGM+ Studios and Amazon’s Pan-English scripted TV.  Alongside Jeff Pinkner, John Griffin, and Jack Bender, serving as executive producers are Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, and Scott Rosenberg from Midnight Radio, Anthony and Joe Russo and Mike Larocca from AGBO, and Lindsay Dunn. Midnight Radio’s Adrienne Erickson serves as co-executive producer. The series is distributed internationally by Paramount Global Content Distribution.
