A trailer for Pantheon’s second season stunned fans after it was announced that the series was getting canceled by AMC+. The technology-focused animated series has since been taken under Amazon Prime Video’s wing and will premiere on October 15 in Australia and New Zealand. The series was halted by AMC+ earlier this year, and the reason behind it remains unknown. Pantheon is based on Ken Liu‘s collection of short stories called Upload Intelligence.
“The series focuses on Maddie, a bullied teen who receives mysterious help from someone online,” reads the synopsis.
It continues: “The stranger is soon revealed to be her recently deceased father, David, whose consciousness has been uploaded to the Cloud following an experimental destructive brain scan. David is the first of a new kind of being: an Uploaded Intelligence or UI, but he will not be the last, as a global conspiracy unfolds that threatens to trigger a new kind of world war.”
The series stars Daniel Dae Kim, Katie Chang, Rosemarie DeWit, Paul Dano, Aaron Eckhart, Taylor Schilling, Ron Livingston, Raza Jaffrey, Scoot McNairy, Anika Noni Rose, Maude Apatow, and more.
