Is There A Release Date For Season 3?
Nothing has been revealed regarding the release date of Season 3. It has not been renewed by Netflix until now. The second season was released in March 2020. Usually, Netflix takes a month or two before renewing a series after the release of its fresh season. One of the biggest reasons why it was not renewed is because of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. All releases and productions have been delayed for the past few months until everything resumes to normalcy.
If the production of the series starts by the end of 2020, then we can expect to get a glimpse of the upcoming season by mid-2021 or by the end of the year. However, it is highly based on assumptions. We hope to get hold of further updates soon until then, stay tuned, and stay safe!
