Is Black Summer Season 3 happening?

Black Summer Season 2 left a few questions for various characters. Will Black Summer Season 3 happen at Netflix?

The second season of Black Summer brought plenty more horror and mayhem. We didn’t get a chance to really get to know any of the characters. In some ways, that was good. It felt like we were in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, not knowing if anyone would live or die.

However, there were a couple of characters we got to know a little. Some of the story focused on Rose, who was now reunited with her daughter, Anna. Then there was Sun, who was a constant part of everyone’s storylines in some way. All three of these women were still alive at the end of the second season, with more potential stories to tell.

Will Netflix renew Black Summer for Season 3?

Now eyes are on whether the show will be renewed for Season 3. This is going to depend on the success of the second season.

The Z Nation prequel series was met with some rave reviews from critics. It’s a fresh take on the zombie genre. Most zombie shows opt to help us get to know the characters and form attachments. We end up not wanting to see them die. With Black Summer, we don’t get much time to root for anyone. There are the odd characters here and there, but the show is focused more on the horrors of a zombie apocalypse, and it’s not always about the zombies!

However, never say “never.” Netflix tends not to make decisions about new seasons for about a month or so after the release of a season. We’re looking at a decision around the middle of July for Black Summer Season 3.

With the critics ratings being high, there is a chance the show will be renewed. However, it’s going to depend on how the ratings have been for Netflix.
