Has Time been renewed for Season 3? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Time is a harrowing and well-written prison drama, complete with heart wrenching moments and some excellent acting all round.

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 Time about?

The second season of Time switches things up, focusing on single mother Orla. She finds herself trapped in a desperate situation after being sent to Carlingford prison. Inside, she meets Kelsey, a young heroin addict, and Abi, a tough lifer.

With a few time jumps along the way, Time ups the ante in a big way this time around. 


Has Time been renewed for season 3?

At the time of writing, BBC have not renewed Time for a third season. Given the nature of this series, and how popular it has been across the UK, there’s definitely a strong case to be made for this one being given the nod.

Generally BBC, like other streaming platforms, 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 etc.). Other times, it can take months before a decision is made over a show’s future.

So far, Time has had an excellent reaction from audiences and critics alike, with many loving the second season and the raw, authentic acting all round. Given there’s only 3 episodes this season too, there’s a good chance that this one has been completely finished, which helps the renewal chances.


What we know about season 3 so far:

Not much is known about season 3 at the time of writing, given BBC have only just dropped the second series on iPlayer (at the time of writing). It’s fair to assume that if this is renewed, we’ll be getting different characters and potentially a different prison too, depending on how things play out.

However, we’ll have to wait and see what the official word is from BBC on this one first. It’s fair to assume though that should this be given the nod, season 3 will likely release in 2024.

  1. A HUGE “Yes, pleeease!!!” for Season 3 from Canada. Superb performers giving extraordinary performances of wonderfully written text! Entirely excellent production values and brilliantly sensitive direction result in rarely equalled television drama. ‘Please sirs (and madams), we want/need some more’. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
