In February 2019, the series was renewed by Amazon for a third season. The timeline continues. In October 2019, Paul Scheuring stepped up as the showrunner; however, in January 2020, Vaun Wilmott took over. What’s going on? Followed by that event, no other official date has been released. Hence, it would be safe to expect a 2021 release.
The production is under process, and the entire cast is yet to be revealed. The creators have not shared the storyline for season 3 to date, but we can definitely look forward to some action-packed endeavors. In a recent meeting, the producer disclosed that the protagonist (Jake Ryan) would be portrayed a little differently than the previous seasons.
