‘The Politician’ on Netflix is a comedy-drama series about Payton Hobart, a rich and ambitious high school kid who is on a journey to realize his one true ambition of becoming President of the United States by meticulously researching the lives of prior Presidents.
The program, which was created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan, received critical acclaim for its production design, bright cinematography, strong music, voguish clothing, and explosive performances by the show’s brilliant cast members.
Despite mixed critical reception, the program earned two Golden Globe nominations. Season 2 was just published and was well-received by fans, who are probably wondering: Will there be a third season of ‘The Politician’? Let us ascertain!
The Politician Season 3 Release Date
Season 2 of ‘The Politician‘ will air on Netflix in its entirety on June 19, 2020. It consists of seven episodes ranging in length from 28 to 62 minutes each.
Since its launch, the program has wowed viewers, particularly Ryan Murphy fans, paving the path for two successful seasons of the musical comedy series.
However, it seems as if viewers will have to wait an extended period to see the third season of their special program. Ryan Murphy, the show’s co-creator, discussed the series’ future in an interview with Collider.
“I believe that I, and I believe that all of us participating in that project, would want to do three seasons in all. And I believe that after season two concludes, what I would want to do is take a couple of years off and allow Ben Platt to mature a little bit for his last race,” Murphy said.
“That has always been our intention, and I believe that is still the case. Ben is still young, and I’d want to wait a few years to learn how to age him gradually. However, it has always been my intention.”
Given the show’s success, a third season is quite plausible, but according to Ryan Murphy, the final season may not debut on the streaming giant for years. As of now, we can anticipate the release of ‘The Politician’ season 3 on Netflix sometime in 2023.
The Politician Season 3 Cast
Between the second and third seasons of The Politician, there will be considerable ambiguity over who will return. One clear thing is that Ben Platt will resume his role as Payton Hobart. After all, he is figuratively referred to as The Politician.
As for the rest of the cast, although most of the show’s principal characters seem ready to reprise their roles in the third season, the show’s lengthy hiatus may prevent other performers from returning. However, it is too early to say at the moment.
Julia Schlaepfer is likely to reprise her role as Alice Charles, Payton’s wife. We wouldn’t be shocked to see Laura Dreyfuss, Zoey Deutch, Rahne Jones, and Theo Germaine return as Payton’s inner circle members.
Given where the series left up after season 2, Judith Light and Bette Midler seem to be a shoo-in to reprise their roles as Vice President-Elect Dede Standish and Chief of Staff Hadassah Gold.
And Gwyneth Paltrow will almost certainly reprise her role as Payton’s mother and current President-Elect Georgina Hobart on occasion. Assuming she is even aware she is a part of the series.
The Politician Season 3 Plot
Season 2 starts up three years after the conclusion of the first season. Payton, aged 22, is determined to win a seat in the New York State Senate, but first, he must defeat majority leader Dede Standish.
Payton rejoins his squad, including James, McAfee, Skye, and Alice. Alice has abandoned her prospective husband to be with Payton, while Astrid works at a nearby restaurant.
Astrid spills the beans on Standish’s dubious love life and informs the group that she is involved in a three-way marriage, which Payton exploits to advantage against Standish. Payton’s political future hangs in the balance after the clash with Standish.
We can anticipate Payton to work even harder in the third season to fulfill his aim of becoming President of the United States of America.
He has matured and given up fighting dirty to appease his moral and ethical conscience, but can he maintain this attitude for an extended period? It will be fascinating to see Payton and his staff devise a strategy for winning the championship race.
