The second season of Ryan Murphy’s comedy-drama series The Politician was released on Netflix more than a year ago. If you’re wondering if the show has been renewed or canceled, we have bad news for you. It’s essentially in limbo, and we don’t expect it to return anytime soon.
The political comedy series is one of Ryan Murphy’s first Netflix originals, and the second from his production company, 20th Television.
It’s worth mentioning that The Politician was never officially renewed for a second season by Netflix. Rather, given the strong bidding war for it, it was originally sold to Netflix with a large two-season order upfront.
Netflix received a number of award nominations for the series, including five Primetime Emmy nods. Furthermore, the series has a decent 7.5 on IMDb, although it is based on only 19k reviews.
Season 2 was launched in March 2020, following the premiere of the top ten features. The series only lasted 6 days in the top ten in the United States, but 23 days in Russia and Ukraine.
Season 3 of The Politician: Has the show been renewed for a third season?
Is this a sign that The Politician will be revived for a third season? We don’t know for sure, but it hasn’t been canceled yet. We’ll have to wait a few years for the creators to give their followers a conclusion. Yes, you read that correctly. Season 3 will be the final installment of the series. Almost the entire cast and crew of the show has signed on to other projects, some of which are with Netflix. As a result, The Politician Season 3 is expected to be released in late 2022 or later.
What the season 2 finale informs us about The Politician’s future:
The action skips ahead two years in the final minutes of The Politician’s second season finale. Georgina and Dede’s presidential campaign was a success, and Payton is preparing to run unopposed for his second term in the New York State Senate.
When he receives a visit from Dede, who has an interesting proposition for him, everything heats up. She says that Georgina only intends to serve for one term as president, leaving the door open for Dede to run for president four years down the road. When she does, she wants Payton to be her vice president.

In a Collider interview, Murphy stated that the series’ final season will be focused on the upcoming presidential election, adding, “That’d have to be a presidential election, right? That’s always been our plan, and I believe it is still our plan.” After two seasons of seeing Payton fight for minor political posts, we’ll finally see him achieve his life’s ambition. We predict this presidential election to be full of betrayals and dramatic surprises, based on the results of his last two campaigns.
Despite the fact that there may be a bit of a delay, it appears that The Politician is planning a fantastic last season for its fans.
The Cast of The Politician Season 3:
Ben Platt will almost certainly reprise his role as Payton Hobart, while Zoey Deutch will almost certainly reprise her role as Infinity Jackson, Payton’s right-hand lady. Lucy Boynton will play Astrid Sloan, Gwyneth Paltrow will play Georgina Hobart, Laura Dreyfuss will play McAfee Westbrook, and Rahne Jones will play Skye Leighton. Dede Standish is played by Judith Light, and Hadassah Gold is played by Bette Midler. Fans still want Jessica Lange to return for the final season, despite the fact that she didn’t appear at all in season two.
The Politician season 3 synopsis:
The Politician season 3 summary has yet to be posted by Netflix. Official plot details are unlikely to be revealed until much closer to the new season’s release date.
However, given the cliffhanger from the second season, it’s reasonable to presume that the third season will follow Payton on his next political campaign, which will be for the vice presidency alongside Dede Standish. Georgina plans to step aside as president after one term, allowing Dede to run with the next Hobart as her running mate.
Payton would also be juggling his recent marriage to Alice, as well as his political ambitions, in Season 3. McAfee was also shown to be involved in a two-year time jump with a man he doesn’t know. Season 3 will be fascinating to see if it takes off where the previous season left off or if it jumps ahead to Payton running for president.
