After the release of the latest season of Deadwind in April and its completion on May 24, 2020, the only popular question asked by the fans was, Is there going to be a third season for this series? Well, it is expected, so even though there haven’t been any official announcements made by Yle TV2 or Netflix regarding this, considering how the story was left with twists and turns at the end of season 2.
It doesn’t seem believable that the show will be ended this way. Therefore, it is expected that the coming of a new season will be confirmed soon by Netflix or Yle TV2, and season 3 will be renewed shortly. However, the reason behind no updates on this matter could be because of the ongoing pandemic situation, leading to a delay in the production of the coming season.
