Will There Be Any Season 3?
Showrunner Ryan Murphy spoke to Collider about his willingness to come back with another season of The Politician. He stated: “I think for me, for the show. I would like to do. And I believe all of us involved in it, would probably like to do three seasons. And I think where the second season ends. What I would prefer is to take a couple of years off and have Ben Platt get older for his final race. That would be a presidential race, right?”
Ryan added: “That’s always what we had created. And I think that’s what our idea is. I’m going to wait. Right now, Ben is young. So I want to wait a couple of years to figure out how we age him up a bit. But that’s always been my plan.”
