When is the Into the Night season 3 release date? With astronomical viewing figures, Into The Night set the world alight with its first two brilliant seasons. After all, not many series make it beyond their first season on Netflix, so to get to a third season, Into the Night must be doing something right!

Based on Jacek Dukaj’s 2015 novel The Old Axolotl, Into the Night is a grim, apocalyptic drama, and one of the best Netflix series around. It arrived back in May 2020, and a second season swiftly followed in September 2021, further establishing it among the best TV series on the streaming service.

Into the Night season 3 release date speculation

Early 2025 is the soonest that Into the Night season 3 could realistically arrive, given production times, the current strikes, and the fact that the series hasn’t actually been renewed by Netflix yet.

However, just because Into the Night hasn’t been renewed yet doesn’t mean you should lose all hope. Netflix hasn’t officially canceled the series either: it’s just in limbo. It could still go either way, though fans may want to brace themselves for news of an official cancellation.

Who will be in the Into the Night season 3 cast?

If Into the Night returns, we’d expect the main players to be back alongside some new faces too. There has been no official confirmation about the season 3 cast, though.

Primarily, we assume that Sylvie (Pauline Etienne), Ayaz (Mehmet Kurtulus), Laura (Babetida Sadjo), and Horst (Vincent Londez) will return. On top of that, new seasons of series always add new cast members, even if they are just supporting players, so expect some to arrive here new on Netflix too.

Who is in the Into the Night season 3 cast? 

    • Pauline Etienne as Sylvie
    • Mehmet Kurtulus as Ayaz
    • Babetida Sadjo as Laura
    • Vincent Londez as Horst
    • Laurent Capelluto as Mathieu
    • Jan Bijvoet as Rik
    • Ksawery Szlenkier as Jakub
    • Alba Gaïa Bellugi as Ines
    • Nabil Mallat as Osman
    • Émilie Caen as Thea

    What will happen in Into the Night season 3?

    We’re expecting some major changes following the revelation with the rats after season 2. The season 3 plot is an open door, though.

    Last season, we saw that Horst and Laura’s experiments had paid off, as they found a rat that survived the sunlight, so this concept will play a large part in the next chapter of the story.

    The characters have been releasing rats out of the bunker to test different ways to survive the outside world, and it looks like their decision to cover the rat in a frozen tin jar is the key to finding answers for mankind’s survival.

    We also saw the survivors in the bunker form an alliance with former military personnel they met down there. The new agreement helped to settle some differences among the various survivors, but how long can that peaceful existence last?

    Is there an Into the Night season 3 trailer?

    As per Netflix’s tradition, we won’t get a new Into the Night trailer until around a month before season 3 releases. So we might be waiting a while.

    The trailer drop will totally depend on season 3’s release date, so we’ll keep an eye out. But the season 2 trailer is still a banger, and you can revisit it and other clips on YouTube.

    How many episodes will Into the Night season 3 have?

    We think there’s a good chance there will be six episodes in season 3, like the previous seasons, but Netflix hasn’t confirmed this.

    This was the case with seasons 1 and 2, and we know Netflix usually likes to stay consistent with the multi-season runs of their shows. Of course, it can vary — especially if season 3 is announced as the last one.

    Where can I watch Into the Night season 3?

    As with seasons 1 and 2, Into the Night season 3 would stream exclusively on Netflix as one of the streamer’s original series.

    You’ll only be able to watch it if you’re a paid subscriber. You can see our list of the best Netflix movies to look for something to fill the space in the meantime, though. And we’ve got secret Netflix codes to skip to the good stuff in your favorite genre.

    There are also plenty of other things to look forward to. Stranger Things season 5 will mark the end of one of the best fantasy series of the past years, and the One Piece season 2 release date is on its way if you’re more into Netflix anime live-action adaptations.
