Cheer, Netflix’s original sports docuseries has garnered the attention of viewers the world over. In January 2022, the series has successfully finished its first two installments, which portray the challenges and wins of the Navarro College Cheer Team as they suit up for the National Cheerleading Championship in Daytona. Considering the IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes ratings of the show, it is very much likely that Cheer will return for a third part. However, there is no official word regarding Cheer Season 3 at this junction, but we are too excited to not see it coming. So, here is what we know so far about season three of this top-rated Netflix series:
Will there be a Cheer season 3 in 2022?
As of August 2022, Netflix has yet to confirm a third season of the cheerleading docuseries. However, considering the second season came as a total surprise to fans, the news dropped just weeks after the new season premiered on the streaming service. Thus, there’s a chance season 3 is already filming and will be released in late 2022/early 2023.
Cheer Season 3 Release date: When will it launch?
Cheer has so far released a total of two seasons and an overall of 15 episodes. The first season of Cheer was released on January 8, 2022, consisting of 8 episodes. The second season was launched on January 12, 2022, consisting of 9 episodes. Here are the list of episodes:
- Episode 1: God Blessed Texas
- Episode 2: Making Mat
- Episode 3: Blood, Sweat and Cheers
- Episode 4: Hit Zero
- Episode 5: Full Out
- Episode 6: Daytona
- Episode 1: Everybody Hopes
- Episode 2:Here’s to We
- Episode 3: Dracut Girl
- Episode 4: Hell Week
- Episode 5: Jerry
- Episode 6: Tumbling
- Episode 7: Mining for Tenths
- Episode 8: Daytona Pt. 1: Don’t Be That Guy
- Episode 9: Daytona Pt. 2: If the Judges Disagree
It is speculated that season three of Cheer is already in the works since the show creator, Greg Whitely has been filming at Navarro College for a couple of years. If that is true, the third part will follow the timeframe of its predecessors and be out by January 2023, or perhaps fans might expect an early release.
This is just a hypothesis as the series is not yet confirmed for another season at this point. But we are hopeful that there is more in store for the fans.
Currently, it is unclear when season three of Cheer will be out but considering the success of the series and there have been speculations about a third season already it is highly likely that a third season will be produced. Until then wait for more updates!
Cheer Season 3 Plot: What will it be about?
Season three will pick up after the aftermath of the Cheer season two. Thus, be ready to welcome a slate of new cast and new competitions. The previous seasons centered around the hurdles of Navarro College as well their rivals, Trinity Valley Community College as they made their way to NCC. It is not surprising that season two was a smash hit among the audiences, and we expect that the potential part three is as amusing as its previous installments.
Cheer Season 3 Cast: Who will be in it?
If the sports television series sees the light of day, it will be delightful to witness many of our favorites returning. Gabi Butter says that she has one more year of junior school, so she is probably coming back. Unfortunately, Morgan Simianer’s journey ends with the last season as she is reluctant to go back to Navarro. But Simianer said that she had a great time at the show. Maddy Brum, Monica Aldama, Shannon Woosley will continue to be part of the docuseries, while Cassadee Dunlap is least enthusiastic about the potential season three as she has other plans. With that, Dunlap is the only one to leave, Jada Wooden of the rival team is also not ready to sign on the dotted line.
The idea for creating Cheer struck Whitely while he was working on a football series, Last Chance U. Whiteley has gained a recognition among viewers for his brilliant works. And we expect to see more of his works in the future.
What happened in ‘Cheer’ season 2?
The second season of the Netflix docuseries followed Navarro’s cheer squad’s journey to Daytona as well as that of their rivals. Trinity Valley Community College, as they prepared to compete in the NCA Championships. It tracked the many obstacles Navarro faced over the past two years: COVID forcing them to abandon the 2020 championships and pick up with an almost new team when schools finally reopened.
Monica Aldama taking a break from her coaching duties to compete on Dancing With the Stars; La’Darius Marshall unexpectedly quitting after a feud; Jerry Harris’s arrest; and the general stress and fame that came with the runaway success of the first season. The season also shed a lot of light on TVCC challenges as the underdogs and how that pushed them to – spoiler alert – ultimately taking home the championship title in 2021.
Trailer for Cheer Season 3: Check it out
At the time of writing, there is no official trailer for Cheer season three available. So we have to wait until an official announcement regarding the much-awaited third part makes to the news.
Will Season 3 of Cheer Premiere in 2023?
As mentioned before, the series has not been renewed yet as of April 2023. It’s been over a year since the second season was released and till now there has been no official word from the show makers. However, fans of this show need not worry as the series’ status is still active, and the fact that Cheer has not been canceled yet implies the series might be gearing up to make a comeback. While it’s not known when the episodes will arrive but fans can definitely get to see it by the end of 2023 or sometime in 2024 at the earliest.
Cheer Season 3 Latest Update
In January 2022, various Cheer stars confirmed they would tour for CHEER LIVE. Coach Monica Aldama led Navarro alums Gabi Butler and Morgan Simianer on the mat for the first time in two years on the tour.
Given that season 2 was a surprise, Netflix may renew the series for season 3. Social media has informed supporters that a third season would end with a Daytona win. After losing to Trinity Valley last year, Navarro won the 2022 cheer competition again.
Butler joined the coaching crew the following season and led Aldama to another Daytona win in April 2023.
Later that month, a Navarro cheerleader sued Aldama for covering up a sexual assault. The head coach told PEOPLE the charges were “wildly inaccurate”.
The cast’s fame and passion to the sport gave them several possibilities after the show’s massive success. Where is the Cheer cast now? These outstanding stars of seasons 1 and 2 have all the updates.
Where Are The Cast of ‘Cheer’ Now?
Cheer made Monica Aldama a nationally famous head coach and sympathetic mother figure for her athletes. After season 1, Aldama and her crew went on a publicity tour that included appearances on various high-profile shows, including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where they received a $20,000 cheque.
“I’ve done this for 25 years, and even though I thought it was temporary, I just can’t see myself quitting,” Aldama told DeGeneres. “I love these kids and doing it.”
Aldama appeared on Dancing with the Stars season 29 with Val Chmerkovskiy. She told PEOPLE, “We’ve done some Zooms, and I get videos every day of practice, check-ins, and stuff.” She coached her Navarro team remotely while filming the series in Los Angeles. Aldama finished in the top 10 before being eliminated in week 7.
The 51-year-old Navarro Head Cheer Coach won the 2022 and 2023 Daytona competitions.
Aldama is close to Cheer cast members. In September 2022, she presented an award at the Creative Arts Emmys with Simianer. In January 2023, she dubbed Butler a “queen” and a “blessing to so many” on her birthday.
The cheer coach wrote Full Out: Lessons in Life and Leadership from America’s Favourite Coach, a memoir.
Navarro’s female cheerleader sued Aldama on April 26, 2023. The plaintiff alleges Aldama, other cheerleaders, campus police, and the Title IX coordinator advised her not to disclose a sexual assault by a squad member during her first semester at the college.
She further claims that Aldama offered to improve her cheer career if she didn’t report the incident.
“I am heartbroken by the false allegations made against me,” Aldama told PEOPLE. “… I would never remain silent or ask any student to remain silent if I knew about Cheer sexual misconduct.”
