Jungfrau River Season 3 renewal status

Official Netflix Renewal Status: Officially renewed (Last update: December 18, 2020)

The first we heard about season 3 Jungfrau River was back in July 2020 when we received a production list confirming that Season 3 was not only in development but should go into production from August 2020 to December 2020.

However, it wasn’t until December 18 that Netflix gave the official thumbs up for season 3 (although filming had already started). The announcement came with a couple of other goodies that we included below.

Netflix Queue contained a video in addition to the announcement of the third season.

Before the renewal, the most compelling evidence that filming had actually started was when the two main cast posted a video saying the new season “will be released in 7 days”. You can See the couple on a movie set.

However, filming for the series was reported back in September 2020. On September 7, 2020, a Twitter user named Jen Eggleston stumbled upon a production ad on Cleveland Dam. It is noteworthy that the notice actually lists 2019 in the daily schedule, even though the actual days match the dates for 2020.

Further directions for shooting were seen at the end of September 2020.

Based on the production plans of previous years, we speculate that filming for Season 3 has indeed been completed and that the long process of editing, localizing (including dubbing for other languages) and preparing for release has now begun.


Who is the cast for? Jungfrau River Season 3?

Aside from the return of the core cast, we already have a new cast for Season 3.

The recurring cast confirmed for Season 3 includes Martin Henderson, Alexandra Breckenridge, Jenny Cooper, Grayson Maxwell Gurnsey, Tim Matheson, Benjamin Hollingsworth, and Colin Lawrence.

The first new casting we’ve heard so far is Jasmine Vega, who can be seen as Stella from season 3. Vega has appeared in titles like Netflix Chilled adventures from Sabrina as Lizzie and DCs Legends of Tomorrow.

In addition to the renewal, Netflix itself introduced two new actors.

This includes Zibby Allen (The Lightning), who will appear in all 10 episodes as Brie, who is Jack’s sister who is a lawyer by profession.

What to expect from Jungfrau River season 3

Before we dive into spoiler territory for Season 2 (please go and see Season 2 before reading this), it’s important to note that the series itself is based on the novel franchise, which the writers don’t lack offers material with 21 novels.

Well, the big cliffhanger in season 3 is going to happen to Jack. As season two draws to a close, Mel enters the bar and finds Jack with a gunshot wound and slowly bleeding on the floor. The other question, of course, is who shot Jack.

We have five suspects:

  • Brady
  • Calvin
  • Charmaine
  • Vince
  • And most likely, Jamie

As NetflixLife notes, the series that brings Martin Henderson back means Jack is almost certainly alive, but what condition he will be in remains to be seen.

Beyond the main story arc, we need to know what happens to Preacher. Had plans to go Jungfrau River, seems to be constantly being prevented from going with Paige’s son Christopher, who is now dependent on him.

What happens in Mel and Jack’s relationship will also be a controversial topic as Jack is about to become a father.

Hope and Doc seem to be a happy couple again, while everyone’s fingers crossed that Lizzie and Ricky can put things right in season 3 as well.

Benjamin Hollingsworth, who plays Brady on the show, recently responded to an Instagram post saying we can expect big things from Season 3, saying:

“I wear a hard hat to protect myself from all the twists and turns of the Season 3 bombing. I hope you are all ready for it. “
