“You’ve built a fortress around yourself for good reason. But if you never leave the fortress, even to sing a little karaoke, it’s a prison.”
The thriller is here with another mind-blowing story! Cruel Summer is a suspense-filled mystery series that will give you goosebumps, but you already knew that, right? That’s why you are here, to know about Cruel Summer Season 3 renewal status. Before we start jumping in, let’s take a moment to rewind the latest episode of the series! While we loved Luke, his birthday special was just another breaking point for us. Megan is going all the way in to make Luke’s birthday special after he got dumped by Isabella.
The awkwardness arose when Megan didn’t leave Luke for a second while her boyfriend watched. Moving on, Megan & Luke did happen, but Ned’s not happy about it. Did I mention Luke tried to kiss Isabella when she comforted him & later put the blame on her for being with Megan? Ya, that happened too. Now we do have one of the valid points of Megan and Isabella falling apart. The mystery of Luke’s murder is still isn’t revealed, while the blood-soaked bedsheets & the new laptop are another hint.

Is Cruel Summer Season 3 renewed or canceled?
Before we dive further, let’s take a moment to thank Bert V. Royal for creating such a thrilling series! The lives of teenagers are nothing more than mystery and the picks from past & present are addicting. As much as the fans demand, Freeform hasn’t renewed Cruel Summer Season 3 yet. While we think it’s only a matter of time, some external circumstances have us on edge. These external circumstances include the Writers’ strike going in the Hollywood entertainment industry. This strike has not only shaken several TV production houses but also put a hold on numerous series. Maybe, that’s why it’s right to get cold feet for Cruel Summer.
We can only hope the writers’ strike gets resolved quickly so that the web series can be saved. Apart from this reason, we don’t see any point in Cruel Summer Season 3 not getting renewed. If you have doubts regarding its viewership, then let me assure you with a 94% approval rating & 7.8/10 IMDb rating, the show’s doing above fine! On Metacritic, the show has gained generally favorable reviews, while Saloni Gajjar of The T.V.Club has praised the series. Even the ratings of the series have been above millions. If we talk about the latest episode, i.e., Season 2 Episode 6, then it has 0.145 million views until now( the episode was aired on July 3, 2023).
With all of these achievements & getting nominated for many awards, we do believe Cruel Summer Season 3 will happen, but the renewal news might get aired after the final is aired. The second season’s final is set to release on July 31, 2023, so let’s wait until then and see where the updates take us! One more of our predictions is it seems the show has followed a pattern of 10 episodes each season & most of these got out in the summer season. So we believe if the third season has to make an entry, it would be the summer of 2025. While it still is just a guess, confirm dates will be given after the renewal announcement only.
