“I am shocked and upset. Like any show, [Three Pines] had growing pains but it was only going to get better and better.”
Prime Video offered:
“We are proud of the work done on the series and the opportunity to work with great partners.”
Three Pines Season 2 is not expected to re-emerge on another platform.
