While 'Ragnarok' season 3 is confirmed, Netflix hasn’t announced a set release date for the show.
Netflix confirmed that the third season of Ragnarok is coming but also notified fans that it will be the last.
Especially after the cliffhanger from the second season, fans are expecting a lot from this show, Digital Spy reports. While on paper the show’s plot sounds fantastic, many people were surprised by how well the show actually did.
The show follows a young man named Magne who lives in a small Norwegian town plagued with climate change and industrial pollution. All of this can be attributed to the Jutul family who is actually the Jotunn posing as a normal family. The Jotunn are trying their best to induce a second Ragnarok until they are intervened by a group of people led by Magne. He is a reincarnation of Thor, the God of Thunder who possess the power of lightning and thunder. In the second season of Ragnarok, he discovers that there are more reincarnates like him.
While they have confirmed the third season, Netflix hasn’t confirmed a set release date for the show. The cast took to their YouTube to announce the third season saying, “Hey beautiful people, I have some good news. You ready? We have been confirmed for season three.”
Laurits actor Jonas Strand Gravli, however, delivered the final blow saying that this season would be the last. But there is reason to be excited because production is already underway for the last season. Filming started in April 2022, according to the show’s Instagram page.
The second season picked off right where the first season ended with the swash-buckling fight against Jutul Industries and the evil giants who run the corporation. While Magne did have a moment where he lost his powers, it was after he forged Mjolnir, Thor's legendary hammer, that he was finally able to get a handle on his gifts.
Not only will the third season continue to follow Magne's battle against the Jutuls, but Laurits' lineage will play a big role moving forward too. Will he side with the gods or the giants? Or perhaps even no one? The answer to this could quite literally bring about the end of days (ICYMI that’s Ragnarok) that's long been prophesied in the Norse tales of old.
As of this moment, there isn’t much news about what new things the third season could entail, coupled with the lack of a trailer, audiences are pretty much in the dark except for theorizing what could happen next.
We can obviously expect the main cast members to return in the third season of Ragnarok which would include David Stakston (Magne Seier/Thor), Jonas Strand Gravli (Laurits Seier), Herman Tømmeraas (Fjor), Theresa Frostad Eggesbø (Saxa), Emma Bones (Gry), Henriette Steenstrup (Turid Seier) and Gísli Örn Garðarsson (Vidar).
While there hasn’t been any casting announcement for new characters, it would be too perfect if Jonas Strand Gravli and Tom Hiddleston’s Lokis become variants outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Netflix hasn't set a specific release date yet. However, the third season is likely to come out by the end of this year or by the early months of 2023. Netflix generally has about a year-long break between two seasons of its original shows. For example, the first season of Ragnarok came out in January of 2020 and while COVID-19 did delay the process, the next season was out in May 2021, almost 18 months after the first one. The assumed shooting schedule would put the release date sometime mid-late next year.
Ragnarok Seasons one and two are now streaming on Netflix.
