Status for season 3
The series is NOT cancelled. However, it has not yet been renewed or cancelled for season 3
The show is comprised of four hour-long episodes that explore unhinged murder cases where investigators uncover and expose the dark world of cults that kill. From a self-proclaimed prophet convincing his followers to murder an innocent family to a vampire coven searching for their next sacrifice, the series shows how power and manipulation can lead to murder.
"Deadly Cults" recounts each case through interviews with the investigators, former cult members, and family and friends closest to the victims. The series explores the chilling tales of cult leaders and the psychology behind them exploiting fear and hatred in the hearts and minds of their followers, which often leads them to kill. The premiere episode delves into a grisly double homicide involving two parents and a missing girl that launches a multi-state dragnet with one of the suspects claiming to be a 500-year-old vampire.
"Deadly Cults" is produced by Eli Holzman, Aaron Saidman and Bill Pruitt from Industrial Media's Intellectual Property Corporation and Paul Franklin and Chris Culvenor from Eureka Productions.
