Pen 15 Season 3 has been under speculation for quite some time now. The Hulu show is known for its unique storyline and the cast which makes you fall in love with the series immediately. However there has been a hiatus in its updates. So, what does that say about the series? Is it canceled or the production is taking time? Well to find out, continue reading the article!
The second half of the second season suffered due to the Covid issues. And in 2021 it was announced that after the airing of the last 8 episodes of the second season Pen 15 will not get anymore seasons. This devastating news of cancellation came from the officials of Hulu so we know that it isn’t a rumor.
Konkle and Erskine, who co-created the series, were very disheartened to break this news for the fans but they promised that they’d somehow continue with the characters. The reasons for the cancellation of the show are still unknown. But many believe that the main reason was its low ratings which were not enough to keep up with the show.
However in the past a lot of shows have got renewed despite getting canceled. And sometimes shows even get picked up by other streaming sites. So, if anyone sees the potential of the series, it will be a matter of time! Hence if everything works out expect the Pen 15 Season 3 to premiere somewhere in 2023.
They revealed in an interview, “When we first talked about making the show 10 years ago, we talked about it in three chapters. And even though [these episodes] are called [Season] 2B, this feels like a third season to us.” Which means that they did have plans to make a third season but they did not get the chance for it. An outline for a threequel was planned out even. But it looks like fate had other plans!
There is no official trailer or any sort of promotional footage from Pen 15 Season 3 yet. Probably because it got canceled by Hulu. However if a miracle happens expect the trailer to come out a few months before the release of the third season. Which will be most likely in the first half of 2023.
Other than that you can still stream the first two seasons on Hulu! And you’ll find a lot of interesting fan made trailers on YouTube which will be enough to quench your thirst for now.
The only characters which can be said to return in the threequel are Erskine and Konkle. However as the show has already been canceled we don’t need to worry about its cast line-up. But we can always speculate!
Other than these two, their parents also had a fair amount of screentime on the show. So, yes they also have high chances of returning. A major stumbling block in Anna’s life was to deal with her parent’s divroce. As this storyline can also be continued in Pen 15 Season 3 expect Melora Walters and Taylor Nicholas to be an integral part of the third season as well.
Other than the immediate family members, the classmates of the lead characters have also been in the spotlight. So, of course they’ll also make a part of the threequel. According to us Sam Zablowski (Taj Cross), Heather (Anna Pniowsky) and Brandt (Jonah Beres) have high chances of featuring in the threequel. Depending on the storyline there might be a few more additions to the cast. But as said before this should be the least of our concerns because the creators have never confirmed the third installment. So, all of this is pretty baseless. But we are hoping for a miracle to happen!
