The Big Door Prize Not Returning for Season 3 at Apple TV+

It’s game over for The Big Door Prize, which is not being renewed for a third season at Apple TV+, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The dramedy received an early Season 2 pickup in April 2023, just one week after its series premiere. Unfortunately, it will not be so lucky this time around.

Based on M.O. Walsh’s novel of the same name, The Big Door Prize told the story of “a small town that is forever changed when a mysterious machine appears in the general store, promising to reveal each resident’s true life potential,” according to the official logline. Bridesmaids vet Chris O’Dowd played Dusty Hubbard, “a seemingly content, cheerful family man and high school teacher” who “watches everyone around him reevaluate their life choices and ambitions — based on the machine’s printouts — and is forced to question whether he is truly as happy as he once thought.”

“While he remains skeptical of the machine, his wife, Cass (played by A Black Lady Sketch Show‘s Gabrielle Dennis), indulges in the dream that there’s something bigger out there for her,” the logline continues. “Like many of Deerfield’s residents, the couple has lived a relatively safe, uncomplicated life, until the arrival of the Morpho machine. However, all of that is about to change when the community is forced to reconcile with their unfulfilled achievements in pursuit of a better future.”

The Big Door Prize is the streamer’s latest casualty, following the cancellations of musical comedy Schmigadoon! and astronaut drama Constellation. But it’s not all bad news! Apple TV+ recently announced renewals for several other series, including Slow Horses, Hijack, Invasion, The Last Thing He Told Me, Monarch: Legacy of Monsters, For All Mankind and Drops of God.
