Homecoming, Amazon prime’s psychological thriller series opened to positive reviews from fans and critics alike on November 2, 2018. The Eli Horowitz created critically acclaimed series the second edition arrived in May 2020 and was also a smash hit among the audience. Now that it’s been over two years since fans heard of any renewal updates of season three, they are anxious whether the third run is even on the cards? Although the series has not been greenlit until date, Eli and Micah definitely have several ideas about a possible Homecoming season three. With that, here’s everything we know so far about a potential Homecoming Season 3:
Will there be a season 3 of Homecoming?
As of yet, it is unclear if the series will be back for another season. However, co-creators and executive producers Eli Horowitz and Micah Bloomberg revealed in an interview, “Each season, we’re widening out a circle and then there’s whole new ways to go. So yeah, we have plenty of ideas for a third season. We want you to have that feeling every time you think, ‘they’re telling me the full story, they’re not hiding anything from me. But I’m enjoying this enough that I’ll be spending more time in this world.”
Fans know that there was about an eighteen months gap in season one. Incorporating with what the showrunners have said, fans should somewhat expect to see a third season. However, we can not be too certain for now and the best is to wait patiently for any sort of official update or announcement.
What is the anticipated airing date for Homecoming Season 3?
The prior seasons had a 17-month waiting period between one another. If the creators go by this release timeline, the series could return for a third installment by Q4 of 2022, at the very least. And that is a possibility if the renewal gets official. Additionally, if the pre and post-production go smooth, without being obstructed by the Covid pandemic.
Currently, we have two seasons, with 17 episodes of HomeComing. Hopefully, in the future, we will see more of it coming. Till then, enjoy its last seasons.
Homecoming season 3 potential plot ideas:
We can speculate about the Homecoming season 3 plot based on the first two seasons. In the first season, we find that the Homecoming program is a government experiment employing Geist to wipe veterans’ memories. Walter Cruz, a mystery Geist Corporation employee, runs the programme. The Geist drug and Homecoming program history is revealed in season 2. We encounter new characters, including Jackie, a young woman trying to discover Homecoming’s reality.
After the second season, Jackie popularises Homecoming. However, the effects are unknown. Jackie and her allies may confront Geist Corporation in season 3. The government may possibly hide the Homecoming scandal. Geist could be utilized dangerously in new ways. Some potential Homecoming season 3 plot ideas:
- Jackie and her pals could explore Geist Corporation facilities for more sinister secrets.
- The authorities may try to discredit or assassinate Jackie and her allies.
- Geist Corporation could create stronger Geist drugs.
- The Geist drug may mass-control people.
- Geist Corporation could try to topple the government and create a new planet.
These are mere speculations; Homecoming season 3 plot might be anything. It will be suspenseful, entertaining, and thought-provoking!
