Renewed Or Cancelled?
Three Pines is the latest murder mystery series on Amazon, taking Louise Penny’s Inspector Gamache Series and adapting it for the small screen across several two part episodes. If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:
What is Three Pines Season 1 about?
Three Pines is a murder mystery series, laid out in much the same way as something like Midsomer Murders. Gamache arrives in the seemingly idyllic village in Quebec Canada, Three Pines, and uncovers a series of murders. With his companions Jean-Guy and Isabelle, the trio set out to learn the truth around various murders and figure out who the suspect is.
Alongside this though, the show also tackles a secondary plot that interweaves across the season. The disappearance of an Indigenous woman called Blue sees Gamache pulled in two directions, desperate to uncover the truth.
We have extensive coverage on Three Pines across the site, including ongoing episodic recaps. Feel free to check that out HERE!
Has Three Pines been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Amazon have not renewed Three Pines for a second season. Given the nature of this series, and the number of Louise Penny books there are, this could well change.
Generally Amazon, like other streamers, gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Amazon make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Three Pines has had a pretty favorable reaction from audiences and critics alike, with the series pretty easy to watch. Although some have criticized the abrupt conclusions to some of these cases.
With all that considered, we predict that Amazon will renew Three Pines for a follow-up. The idea is straightforward enough and there’s enough source material to adapt into further chapters.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Not much is known about season 2 at the time of writing, given Amazon have not renewed this one yet. Despite Amazon’s shaky track record this year for renewals, we’re predicting that this will be green-lit for another season.
It’s likely that Amazon will make an official announcement several months from now about the future of this show, but for now we’ll have to wait and see. We’ll be sure to update this section with more information as it becomes available.
