Starstruck Season 3 Release Date
At the time of writing, we know that the third season is confirmed. However, an official release date is yet to be announced. We also know that the upcoming season will be featuring six episodes, just like the previous two seasons.
Since the premiere of the first season, Starstruck has been blessed with positive reviews. In addition, it is a huge commercial success too, especially in the United Kingdom. In BBC Three, the series became the most successful new comedy.
Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content at HBO Max previously said that Starstruck is the kind of love story that HBO Max wants to feature. She further added that she is happy to see that the story of Jessie and Tom will continue.
The first season premiered on 25 April 2021, and the second season was released on 2 February 2022. There was a gap of roughly ten months between the first and the second season of Starstruck. If the same trend continues, we expect that Starstruck Season 3 will have a release date of late 2022.
The story revolves around Jessie, who is a millennial, and that too an aimless one. She lives in East London and accidentally ends up sleeping with Tom Kapoor, a movie star that is an A-list actor. The attraction between the two is undeniable, and in the first season, both the duo navigate through this attraction. At the end of the second season, Jessie and Tom temporarily break up, but then Jessies’s friend makes her realize that she has a tendency to run when a relationship gets serious. After this realization, Jessie says sorry to Tom, and then the viewers are blessed with their reunion. In Starstruck Season 3, we expect a patch-up romance between Jessie and Tom.
There is no official release date, and we do not know the plot of the upcoming season either. Even after such a situation, we know that the upcoming season will again be full of romance and comedy. The fans will not be disappointed for sure!
Rose Matafeo is the creator of the show, and she along with Alice Sneeden are the writers of the show too. Avalon Television is the production company, and BBC Three and HBOX Max are the distributors. If you haven’t watched the series yet, you can switch to BBC iPlayer for streaming it. The show has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and therefore, there is a chance of disappointment when it comes to Starstruck. We will update you more about Starstruck Season 3 once things start rolling in for the upcoming season.
