When is the Hightown season 3 release date? The beautiful surroundings of Cape Cod in Massachusetts are considerably less beautiful in Rebecca Cutter’s crime drama Hightown, which is returning to screens for another dose of murder in the sunshine.

Hightown is one of the best TV series out right now, and thanks to an explosive second season, fans are already dying to know more about the series’ future and Jackie Quiñones’ continued adventures against crime and a relapse into addiction. Well, we are here to help solve the mystery, folks! Here’s what we know about the Hightown season 3 release date, cast, plot, and latest thriller news.

Hightown season 3 release date speculation

Hightown was renewed for season 3 by Starz in March 2022, and we expect the show to release in early 2024.

We know that filming took place in the second half of 2022, so we’d expect that the thriller series is in the can by now and post-production is underway. However, 2023 is almost done, and no new news has been announced regarding a potential release date.

With this silence and lack of promotional material in mind, we are pretty confident that Hightown season 3 won’t be hitting our small screens until 2024.

The main cast members of Hightown are expected to return for season 3, including Monica Raymund, with confirmed new additions including Garret Dillahunt, Jeanine Serralles, and Kaya Rosenthal.

Monia Raymund will definitely be back in the Hightown season 3 cast as Jackie Quiñones, whose investigations serve as the center of the series. Dohn Norwood and James Badge Dale are also expected to be back as narcotics cops, alongside Amaury Nolasco as drug kingpin Frankie Cuevas Sr. and Atkins Estimond as Cuevas’ lieutenant Osito.

Deadline announced new additions to the cast in June 2022, including Garret Dillahunt and Michael Drayer as new drug dealers. Meanwhile, Kaya Rosenthal will play a rookie cop working with Ray, and Ellie Barone portrays a missing girl with whom Jackie becomes obsessed.

The possible Hightown season 3 cast list includes:

  • Monica Raymund as Jackie Quiñones

  • James Badge Dale as Det. Ray Abruzzo
  • Riley Voelkel as Renee Segna
  • Amaury Nolasco as Frankie Cuevas Sr.

What will Hightown season 3 be about?

The Hightown season 3 plot will follow a new drug dealer aiming to take Cape Cod by storm, as well as the case of a missing young woman.

Starz president Busby told Deadline: “We are excited to return to Cape Cod to see our iconic characters battle their past mistakes as well as new foes in the dangerous underworld that lies beneath this idyllic setting.”

Hightown season 2 ended with Jackie experiencing a relapse, as well as trooper Alan’s career hanging in the balance, and an attempt on the life of imprisoned drug dealer Frankie Cuevas Sr. with a shiv under the orders of wannabe kingpin Osito.

These story threads will be picked up again alongside the new arrivals, shaking things up. Boston gangster Shane Frawley and his reckless nephew Owen will seek to challenge Osito’s dominance over the drug trade in Cape Cod, while Jackie becomes obsessed with the case of the mysterious missing woman, Ellie Barone.

Is there a Hightown season 3 trailer?

No, there isn’t a Hightown season 3 trailer yet. However, teasers are expected to drop in early 2024. 

As mentioned above, Hightown season 3 doesn’t have a release window yet, meaning we can’t put down a firm estimate on when a trailer will come out. Trailers tend to release a couple of months before a season, so realistically, 2024 is when we will see clips.

It’s been a long wait, we know. However, if you want to get a flavor of the series, you can check out the Hightown season 2 trailer below.
