During the height of the global pandemic in July 2020, the second season of the acclaimed period drama premiered on TNT. The show exhibited the potential to go on for several seasons. But it’s already 2022, and there is little we know about The Alienist Season 3.
TNT’s The Alienist is periodic thriller drama series that, in 2018. The drama series is based on Caleb Carr’s novels. The show stars Luke Evans, Dakota Fanning, and Daniel Brühl. The show is set in 1890s New York. The series chronicles as the trio investigate a series that kills children in new York.
The show has garnered much success in the form of critical acclaim upon release of the first season in 2018. As a result, the second season was also commissioned in 2020. Meanwhile, the audience loved the intense drama in both seasons. The Alienist brilliantly combines historical events and real-life personalities like FDR with its gripping narrative. And that is why fans are waiting for The Alienist Season 3 to know what’s next.
Will There Be The Alienist Season 3?
The second season of The Alienist, which premiered on July 19, 2020, finished its run on August 9, 2020. Since then, the fans of the drama-thriller series have been waiting for The Alienist Season 3. However, even after all this time, there has been no official announcement from TNT about the renewal of the series for the third season.
In a conversation, the showrunner Stuart Carolan said in a conversation, “We need to wait for Caleb Carr to write a third book. My understanding is that he is writing the third book so you just have to wait and see.” As of now, we don’t about much about the season but if it comes, it won’t before late 2022.
What To Expect From The Alienist Season 3?
The second season of The Alienist follows a child killer who kidnaps children and kills them. Laszlo Kreizler, Sara Howard, and John Moore successfully tracked the killed down after numerous homicides, murder attempts, and secrets. However, the trio goes different ways after closing the case as Kreizler goes to Vienna. Meanwhile, John and Sara separated as John was expecting a baby with her fiance.
As the show follows a different storyline for each season, we hope The Alienist Season 3 will also introduce a new case. The next season will most likely be based on Carr’s next book in the series. The third book in the novel series is titled “Surrender New York.” The book set in the modern-day revolves around Dr. Trajan Jones. He tries to implement his contentious methods in a rural town.
Although major details about The Alienist Season 3 are under wraps, we know that the season will bring high-intensity drama and suspense to the audience. We also expect the season to delve a little deeper into the personal lives of all three central characters.
