The Politician Season 2 - New Movies - Netflix shows, Netflix shows in danger

Netflix shows that might be canceled: The Politician

Seasons: 2

Created by: Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan

Starring: Ben Platt, Zoey Deutch, Lucy Boynton, Bob Balaban, David Corenswet, Julia Schlaepfer, Laura Dreyfuss, Theo Germaine, Rahne Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Bette Midler

It’s been well over a year since The Politician season 2 was released on Netflix, and the show remains in limbo. It’s important to note that when the series was sold to Netflix, the streamer received a straight-to-series two-season order. So a second season was guaranteed. The comedy-drama didn’t have to go through the renewal process.

Since season 2 premiered in June 2020, fans should’ve heard news of a cancellation or renewal from Netflix by now. Sadly, this is not the case, and The Politician‘s fate remains unknown. The creators, cast, and crew haven’t talked about a potential season 3 in a very long time. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan are also working on other projects at the moment, so it looks like The Politician has either been put on the back burner or has been quietly canceled.

The show might actually be postponed for now and not canceled. In April 2020, Collider spoke with Ryan Murphy, and he stated his plans for the series. He basically said that he and the co-creators planned for the show to consist of three seasons total. However, he said he’d like to take a couple of years off and have Ben Platt, who plays the protagonist, get a little bit older. Murphy said he’d like to wait a couple of years to figure out how they will “age him up a little bit” for season 3.

So it looks like fans might just get to see a third season after all. Just not anytime soon. However, Netflix has not officially renewed the comedy-drama series yet. So The Politician‘s fate is still up in the air.
