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 decided to sign the deal for the third part of Black Summer. The streaming giant is infamously known for making decisions about the fate of any series after taking into account its viewership numbers, sales, ratings, and reviews. Since the series’ second season did well, the streamer officially gave the green light for another season run.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the third season of Black Summer and as of May 2022, Netflix has formally declared that the new season is finally arriving on June 16, 2022.
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.
