Black Summer Season 3: Release Date, Cast & Plot
Black Summer is an apocalyptic fiction series created by Karl Schaefer and John Hyams. It made its debut in April 2019 on Netflix and was further renewed for a second installment in November 2021. Following the premiere of its second part in June 2021, fans are awaiting its next chapter. Unfortunately, the showrunners have not made any official announcement of Black Summer Season 3 yet, still there are speculations that it would be out in late 2021. So, here comes the question, “What does the third season of Black Summer have in store for its fans?” Here’s everything we know about it so far
Black Summer Season 3: Release date
Netflix has not signed the deal for the third part of Black Summer. It is known that the streaming platform decides the fate of any series after taking into account its viewership numbers, sales, ratings, and reviews. Since the series follow-up is currently airing, the streamer may not give it a greenlight until some time.
We are expecting to have an official release date by the end of 2021. If the renewal is granted, the series would return either by early 2022 or late 2023. Given that the first two seasons broadcasted nearly two years apart, it seems more likely that the series will drop by the spring of 2023.
Black Summer Season 3: Plot details
Season two of Black Summer witnessed more deaths than survivors. Ross has met a near-death encounter and it is difficult to anticipate whether she would survive the severe injuries or not. Following the events of the previous season, Anna will presumably take the center stage. She has to find a safe place to take her mother while learning to fight her own battles in the absence of her mother. Besides, Kyungsun is the only person who managed to escape. In season 2, we finally witness her meeting someone, the pilot who speaks and understands her language. The role of Kyungsun throws light on the refugee issues in North America. It is a safe bet to assume that the next season would delve deeper into this character’s story. Nazeri is another survivor but his part in the upcoming season is still in the dark. Stay tuned for more.
Black Summer Season 3: Cast
The survivors of Black Summer Season 2 would return to their past roles. Zoe Marlett will appear as Anna, Ross’s daughter in the series and Christine Lee will be the Kyungsun in the third season. Sadly, Justin Chu Cary’s journey ( Julius James) ended with the previous season. So, the audience would not see him again. There is a slim chance of Jaime King making a comeback as Ross. Ray Nazeri ( Bobby Naderi) is likely to join the cast alongside Bechir Sylvain (Braithwaite). You may also see new additions to the cast but their roles are not disclosed yet.
Black Summer Season 1 and 2 are now streaming on Netflix. Until we wait patiently for Season three, fans can always binge-watch its previous seasons on the streaming platform. Watch this space for more.
