Production is expected to start in February next year, suggesting a release either late 2021 or early 2022. This renewal came a bit later than expected, as it’s been more than three months since the superhero series debuted its ten-episode second season.
During the show’s second season, the family was primarily stuck in 1963 as they came together to stop a second apocalypse from happening. The season’s finale saw the characters back in the present and having successfully averted both apocalypses from happening. Still, as anyone who loves time-travel movies will tell you, this led to some major timeline changes.
Series leads Ellen Page, Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Robert Sheehan, David Castaneda, Aidan Gallagher, and Colm Feore are all expected to return for season three.
