Acapulco Season 3: When will the new season premiere on Apple TV+?

The series was renewed for a third season a few days ago, which makes it way too early for the network to announce the prospective premiere date for the upcoming season. But if we have to predict the potential release date of Acapulco Season 3, it might happen sometime in the fall, around late 2023, with October being the likely timeframe. We would like to clarify that this is just speculation at this time and that the official date, as well as other details, will be confirmed by the network in the coming months as the series approaches its debut on Apple TV+.

Hence, any statement about the show’s official release date and time slot is still pending verification by the network. So, it is just assumed that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame if the network decides to go with the exact schedule. In the meantime, we suggest that the viewers be patient and follow all the social media platforms for the series to be updated with the latest information for the upcoming season. In the meantime, we suggest you stream Seasons 1 and 2, which are now globally available on the streaming platform.
