High Seas Season 4 release date
Unfortunately, there is no release date for the fourth season of High season as it was officially cancelled by Netflix back in mid-2020. The third season was the final season of the series and therefore, there won’t be a season 4 of High Seas.
Why is season 4 of High Seas Cancelled?
The Spanish series was initially envisioned for just two seasons but was lengthened way past its original plotline due to the immense popularity of the show so it’s no surprise that Netflix decided to cancel the show for a fourth instalment.
According to reports, High Seas was originally renewed for a third and fourth instalment with sixteen episodes in development. The news was reported in October 2019. However, in mid-2020, the fourth season was confirmed to be cancelled.
Also, the reason why Netflix axed the series after its renewal is still unknown. As per speculations, it has to do with the lack of marketing while others speculated that the covid-19 got in the way of filming schedules for the fourth season which also caused further delays for the release of the sixth season. But the main reason is that the streamer was no longer interested to invest in the High Seas franchise anymore.
As of May 2022, the series stands canceled, and therefore, a fourth season won’t return in the future. The third season was the final outing of the High Seas series.
Well apparently, the series was renewed for two more seasons simultaneously which are the third and fourth seasons but unfortunately, the fourth season had to be canceled as the third season wrapped the story in its entirety. Henceforth, there was no need to continue the story further.
Although the series may be over for good you can watch the previous three seasons of High Seas which are now available for streaming on Netflix.
