News & Updates
As per the newest update, the series hasn’t been renewed or cancelled. It’s over 6 years and there’s still not a single word issued by the show makers. The second season premiered on September 28, 2015, with eight episodes. It later debuted in the UK and the US in October.
The global response from the audience is opulently positive. The series earned notable acclaim for its extraordinary story and twist. Given the massive popularity of the show, it should have no problem with a few more seasons but so far the future seems uncertain as it has been many years since the last season aired but we still hope that the series does make a comeback as there are fans who are waiting for the third season.
What to expect from the third season of The Returner?
As far as the third season is concerned, nothing has been confirmed yet and so is the story. Like we have mentioned earlier, there is no information available regarding the third instalment and it’s not wise to make assumptions but there’s a chance that the series might make a surprise comeback with the third season considering the popularity of the series and fans’ demands for a new season. So what we should do now is wait patiently until a further announcement is provided by the show makers and hopefully it’s a positive one.
