American supernatural drama ‘Chambers’ premiered on Netflix in 2016. On April 26, 2019, the series made its streaming network debut. The series, developed by Leah Rachel, is a potent brew that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats with its blend of psychological horror, a touch of body horror, drama, mystery, and thrills. Akela Cooper is running the show, and Super Deluxe and Super Emotional are producing it. Among the executive producers are Leah Rachel, Stephen Gaghan, Akela Cooper, Jennifer Yale, Wolfgang Hammer, Winnie Kemp, and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.
The protagonist of the show is a young woman who, after receiving a new heart, begins to take on the characteristics of her donor. As the plot develops, she starts to suspect that the donor’s death wasn’t very unexpected and that she might actually be possessed by the corpse. With such a riveting backstory, it’s no surprise that people tuned in. While many enjoyed the series, some felt that the tale would have been better served as a movie.
Chambers Season 2 Renewal Status
The second season of Chambers has been canceled by Netflix. Eighty percent of Netflix shows are extended for a second or third season after the first season ends. Nonetheless, it appears such is not the case with Chambers. Leah Rachel, the show’s creator, immediately began plotting season two. Even Leah was feeling very confident about making a comeback with more fan-pleasing tales. However, after Netflix’s announcement, all bets were off.
Chambers Season 2 Release Date
On April 26, 2019, the first season of “Chambers” debuted. The news for the upcoming season is not good. Netflix made the decision to end production on the show on June 19th, 2019. The show apparently did not do as well as Netflix had hoped. Fans shouldn’t get their hopes up too high, though, because there is a remote potential that another network may eventually pick up the show.

Chambers Season 2 Plotline
What occurs in Season 2 might go one of three ways. Until his innocence is confirmed, Sasha’s uncle Frank will spend a lengthy period in prison after being wrongfully convicted of murder. As part of their plan to have Sasha all to herself, The Annex is suspected of framing Uncle Frank for murder. Sasha’s full potential and might were on display in the episode’s climax, when she was able to neutralize members of The Annex who were attempting to praise the spirit within her. This implies that Sasha can do anything she sets her mind to in order to achieve her goals.
The ghost is actually Adam’s first wife, Lilith, who ran away from him into the woods because she refused to submit to his authority. As a demonic entity in Jewish tradition, Lilith appears to have had a negative impact on Becky. The Annex considers Lilith a good goddess, and its hostess Sasha to be the goddess herself.
Season 2 of Chambers will focus on Sasha fighting Lilith for control of her immortal self after the death of Becky’s soul. Sasha must decide in season two whether to make use of her new abilities or try to eliminate them.
Chambers Season 2 Trailer

Chambers Season 1 Review
The plot focuses on Sasha. This young woman had a near-death experience and is transported to the hospital, where she receives a heart transplant. She is plagued by disturbing hallucinations, distorted perceptions, and violent impulses because of the heart she has been given. This ties back to the girl named Becky who owned the heart before Sasha and who died under unexplained circumstances at the same school. Sasha gradually discovers more about Becky’s life and the events that led to her death throughout the course of the season, building to a surprising climax that makes the wait worthwhile.
Despite the series’ excessive length, Chambers successfully injects numerous instances of tension and unease. The acting is generally solid, and the show’s unexpected cliffhangers will keep you coming back for more. However, Uma Thurman’s Nancy is the film’s shining star, and her understated yet potent performance is more than enough to help raise the film’s overall quality.
The horror in Chambers is competent but not particularly frightening. Still, there’s much here to maintain your viewing until the final moments, and the tension is well heightened by the scene layout and camera work. The plot drags its feet throughout the first third of Chambers, which lessens the book’s overall appeal; but, the surprising conclusion will be worth sticking around for.
