The French horror series in question came out in 2019.

Sadly, creator Sam Bodin claims there weren’t enough viewers for it to justify a second series.

In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, he admits that originally, there had been plans for future instalments.

Bodin says: “At the time, I really wanted to do three seasons.

“The story in my head takes three seasons, three acts for me. Three big chapters.”

Although Marianne came out four years ago, the show has been revitalised by Netflix viewers who have only just stumbled across it.

Many people have taken to social media and shared their praise for the programme.
