The Passage is an all-new Fox’s vampire drama, which is based on Justin Cronin’s novel of the same name. The Passage is supposed to be a three-part trilogy, of which Season 1 formed the first. Season 2 will naturally follow the second of the series and if the show gets renewed, Season 3 will form the last part of the trilogy, is our guess.
And because the show is relatively new, we’ll take some time to introduce it. The series follows the story of a 10-year-old Amy Bellafonte (Saniyya Sidney). She becomes an orphan at the very start of the show because of a tragic incident in which her mother dies from a drug overdose. So she instantly finds herself on the run with FBI agent Brad Wolgast.
The FBI agent Brad Wolgast has a cruel task of taking Amy to a dangerous medical facility where experiments can be done on her. Scientists have a free will to run tests on her as she becomes a part of Project Noah. This programme is run to wipe out all disease by boosting the human immune system. And unfortunately, for Amy, much success had been achieved. The plot twist is that this treatment turns them into blood-sucking leeches, aka virals.
Wolgast isn’t the bad guy here. He gets her to the medical facility, but soon he has a change of heart. He decides against the whole thing that experimenting on a child isn’t the same thing to do. And that’s how the story rolls.
The other books to the series are The Twelve and The City of Mirrors. So far as the update goes, Fox hasn’t yet officially confirmed the same. We don’t know whether we’re going to get a second season or not. For now, we don’t have a update.
In case that happens, we would expect The Passage to air at the end of 2019/early 2020.

Well, there is bad news for all The Passage fans, which has already been circulated a lot. The show has been canceled at Fox, which has disappointed many. Even crew and cast members are unhappy to see the show discontinued. Mark-Paul Gosselaar, who played Brad on the show posted this on Instagram:
There was no reason announced, although we do know that it was due to slipping viewership. The first episode had a massive 5.2 million opening, but then it got decreasing with each episode. Hence, the decision had to be taken to end the show after the first season.
