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

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Murder mysteries are always great to watch, thanks to the suspenseful plot and many plot twists that come with such shows. Cruel Summer was one TV show that took the world by storm in 2021 with its insane plot and mega plot twist in every episode.

The ending of Season 1 left viewers with many questions that everyone wanted answers for and it looks like the makers have now come back with another season to do just that.

While the characters of Seasons 1 and 2 are not interconnected, fans are hopeful to see some connection between the two seasons after it was revealed that there’s an Easter egg connection between Seasons 1 and 2.

As the second season of Cruel Summer is soon to come to an end, there is one lingering question that many fans have after watching the season finale. Has this been renewed?

If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if Cruel Summer has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:

What is Cruel Summer season 2 about?

The show follows a similar narration to its previous season and is split over three different timelines narrating the story of Megan, a young girl who lives in a small town in Canada where everyone knows everything.

Isabella Laure, an exchange student, arrives to live with Megan and her family for her Senior Year of High School. The show takes place at a time when there’s a lot of uncertainty around the start of a new millennium as the year 2000 rolls in.

Megan and Isabella start growing close to each other as friends. However, things soon take a dark turn when Megan’s boyfriend (who is also Isabella’s ex) disappears and is later found to have been murdered. Megan or Isabella are the only two people who were last seen with him.

We have extensive coverage of Cruel Summer across the site, including episode recaps for the second season of the TV Show. You can check those out HERE.

Will there be a Season 3 of Cruel Summer?

At the time of writing, Cruel Summer will not be returning for a third season. The show has officially been cancelled. 

Generally, networks and 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, other times, it can take months before a network makes a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Cruel Summer has had a mixed reaction from audiences and critics where viewers really enjoyed the first season of the show but are taking their time with the show. With all that considered, there is no third season.

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 Cruel Summer Season 3 so far:

Barely anything is known about season 3 at this point, given the fact that the makers have not officially renewed this one yet. Should the streamers decide to greenlight this one, it’s fair to assume that the show will be going over another murder mystery or criminal investigation from the early 2000s. 

Even if there is no information about a follow-up, there is always the possibility that the actors return for a spin-off featuring the same characters. But based on everything we’ve seen, Cruel Summer will not be renewed. We aim to update this page when more information becomes available.

  1. I would love cruel summer season 3. This show is so good! I want to know what happens to prior season ‘s show. Did Megan go away for life in that season? It left the show in a cliffhanger and so did season 2. I would totally watch season 3!!!!

  2. I would love to see a season 3 of Cruel Summer. I personally like season 2 better than season 1; I never did finish watching season 1. I just couldn’t get into the characters or plot, like I have for season 2. Plus I think season 2 definitely has more twist and turns than the first season. And I think the writers can come up with an even better, more nail biting plot for season 3.

  3. 3rd season!! I think the differences in-between the seasons is dope AF!. Almost like Black Mirror but instead of every episode it’s every season. It definitely keeps you guessing and the depths they went to make ever one of these characters relatable make it that much more of a nail biter. Also another plus is this way the show stays exciting and fresh, so no overly repetitive plots, storylines, or characters. Personally I think the show does a fantastic job of drawing you into the mindset of each one of its characters & their world, as if it was your own. And by doing so it gives an eye-opening yet sometimes humbling perspective on situations and events that we in our normal day to day life wouldn’t never of even considered. YALL DOIN GREAT KEEP IT UP!
