It’s been a year since the second season of The Politician aired on Netflix. Ever since then, we haven’t heard much from the show makers and fans have been anxiously waiting for the third season but as of now the current renewal status of the series is pending. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming season and more.
What is the show about?
The Politician is an American comedy-drama television series created by Ryan Murphy along with Iam Brennan and Brad Falchuk and premiered in the US on Netflix. The series revolves around Payton Hobart (played by Ben Platt), who’s from a very rich family and with each new season, it centres on a diverse political race his role is engaged in.
Payton, a pupil from Santa Barabara, ever since when he was young has always felt that one day he’ll be the President of the US. But the main problem is that he’ll have to keep in control the most corrupt political parties of all. i.e. St. Sebastian High School.
The Politician Season 3:Release Date
The Politician has two seasons and 15 episodes overall which last aired on Netflix. The first season was released on September 27, 2019, with 8 episodes and the second season which was released on June 19, 2020, with 7 episodes. As for the third season, there is no official release date since the series hasn’t been renewed yet. But if Netflix gives the green signal for the series third instalment, it’ll arrive by the end of 2022 or sometime in 2023.
The Politician Season 3: Is the series renewed for a third season?
Unfortunately, the official confirmation on the renewal status of the series third season is not announced yet. This is probably not the best news for the fans since it’s been over a year and we haven’t got any updates.
Who’s in the upcoming cast of The Politician Season 3?
The official cast lineup is not confirmed yet but we expect to see some of the major characters in the upcoming third season including Ben Platt (as Payton Hobart), Zoey Deutch (as Infinity Jackson), Lucy Boynton (as Astrid Sloan), Bob Balaban (as Keaton Hobart), David Corenswet (as River Barkley), Julia Schlaepfer (as Alice Charles), Laura Dreyfuss (as McAfee Westbrook), Theo Germaine (as James Sullivan), Rahne Jones (as Skye Leighton), Benjamin Barrett (as Ricardo), Jessica Lange (as Dusty Jackson), Gwyneth Paltrow (as Georgina Hobart), Judith Light (as Dede Standish), Bette Midler (as Hadassah Gold).
The Politician Season 3: Plot
Plot details are scarce at the moment as the third instalment is yet to be renewed but since the second season ended on a cliffhanger, it would be such a disappointment if the series were to be cancelled without a third season. In an interview with the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy via Collider said that “I would like to do, and I think all of us involved in it would probably like to do three seasons total.”
With that said, pretty sure we’re getting a third season but first, let’s all wait for an official announcement.
