‘Dead End: Paranormal Park’ on Netflix: Everything We Know So Far
First announced in July 2020, we will finally see Impasse: paranormal park arrive on Netflix in June 2022. Hamish Steele’s comic strip Dead Endia is being adapted into a new show and we have updated everything you need to know for the upcoming anime series.
Dead Endia is a comic book series created, written and illustrated by Hamish Steele.
There are currently two DeadEndia comics; The Watcher’s Test and Shattered Halo. Each comic is about 240 pages.
The series will be produced by Blink Industries, who are best known for their work on The Amazing World of Gumball and Brittany.
The story of Impasse: paranormal park takes place in a haunted theme park, where supernatural and demonic forces roam. Barney and Norma, along with the magical talking dog Pugsley, work in Dead End, which means they have to deal with demons, ghosts, wizards and the scariest of them all their love life.
The characters of Impasse: paranormal park are incredibly diverse, which includes Barney as transgender and Norma as neurodiverse.
Author Hamish Steele had the following to say about the diversity of his comics:
“I always dreamed of making the show I needed as a lonely, horror-obsessed gay kid and thanks to Netflix and our ridiculously talented, diverse and representative room and team of writers, we shot far beyond my dreams and into wildest fantasy territory!”
When Impasse: paranormal park debut on Netflix?
Netflix has not confirmed the exact release date and it was expected that Impasse: paranormal park would debut in 2021. An interview suggests it was supposed to release in fall 2021.
This never happened and instead we now know that Season 1 of DEAd End: Paranormal Park arrives on Netflix on June 16, 2022.
The trailer, released on May 19, comes with the following caption giving us a taste of what to expect:
“Meet Barney, his dog Pugsley (who can now walk and talk after an exorcism gone wrong – it’s a long story!), Norma and a millennial sardonic demon named Courtney who must work together to battle paranormal fears and maybe… just maybe, save the world!
Additionally, Netflix has released some early screenshots of upcoming Hamish Steele adaptations.
Who are the actors Dead Endia?
When Netflix made the announcement on Twitter, they also revealed some of the cast members who will play the characters from Dead Endia:

In March 2022, Hamish Steele praised his casting on Twitter saying:
“At what point can you become one of those directors who just works with the same cast over and over again because I want to throw every actor from Dead End right back into everything I do next. They are all so good”
How many seasons of Dead Endia can we expect to see?
At the time of writing, it can be assumed that each season will cover each respective comic that has been released.
With only two comics from Dead Endia released that would mean at a minimum that there should be at least two seasons.
We can confirm that the show received an initial order for two seasons.
If Hamish Steele is to publish more comics, we can assume more seasons could be produced.
