What Ryan Murphy has to say about ‘The Politician’ Season 3?
Since its premiere, the show has managed to impress the audiences, especially Ryan Murphy fans, paving way for the comedy series to spawn two hit seasons. However, it looks like fans will have to wait for a long while for the third season of their favourite show. In an interview with a leading publication, the show’s co-creator, Ryan Murphy, talked about the future of the series.
“I think for me, for that show, I would like to do, and I think all of us involved in it, would probably like to do three seasons total. And I think where season two ends, what I would love to do is take a couple of years off and have Ben Platt get a little bit older for his final race”, Murphy said.
‘The Politician’ Season 3 release date?
Well, considering its popularity, a third season renewal seems highly likely. However, if Ryan Murphy is to be trusted then it could be years before the final season or ‘The Politician’ Season 3 drops on the streaming giant.
So, as of now, we can expect ‘The Politician’ Season 3 to release sometime in 2023 on Netflix.
The expected cast for ‘The Politician’ Season 3
Ben Platt leads the cast of the show’s new season as Payton Hobart, the precocious student body president at St. Sebastian. He is accompanied by Infinity Jackson who stars as Zoey Deutch. Moreover, the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ star Lucy Boynton plays Payton’s rival, Astrid Sloan while Gwenyth Paltrow stars as Payton’s adoptive mother, Georgina Hobart.
With that, the cast also includes Julia Schlaepfer (Alice Charles), Laura Dreyfuss (McAfee Westbrook), Theo Germaine (James Sullivan), Rahne Jones (Skye Leighton), Judith Light (Dede Standish), Bette Midler (Hadassah Gold), Ryan J. Haddad (Andrew Cashman), Dylan McDermott (Theo Sloan), and January Jones (Lisbeth Sloan), among others. All the main cast members are highly likely to reprise their roles in season 3.
Potential plot for ‘The Politician’ Season 3
Season 2 picks up from the ending of the first season, which is set three years in the future. By then, Payton is a 22-year-old who aspires to grab a seat in the New York State Senate but, to do that, he has to beat the majority leader, Dede Standish. Payton reunites with his team – James, McAfee, Skye, and Alice.
Season 2 also saw Alice leaving her future-husband at the alter to be with Payton, as Astrid works as a waitress in a local restaurant. Further, Astrid reveals Standish’s fishy love life and tells the group that she is in a three-way-marriage, which helps Payton gain an upper hand over Standish. The ultimate showdown between Payton and Standish leaves the fate of Payton’s political career up in the air in season 2.
So, in the third season, we expect Payton to push harder to achieve his dream of becoming the President of the United States of America. We have seen him evolve as a person and someone who has given up fighting dirty to suit his moral and ethical conscience.
But, will the third season maintain the same character graph for Payton? Will he be able to sustain this behaviour for long? Even though season 3 is far, come to think of it, its worth the wait to see Payton and his group chalk out a masterplan to win the final race.
