Reservation Dogs is an Indigenous American teen comedic drama television series made for FX Productions by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi. It is a remarkable first in that it has all Indigenous authors and directors, as well as a cast and production staff that are virtually exclusively Indigenous North Americans.
Moreover, Reservation Dogs has gained great critical praise and multiple honors, including a Peabody Award, two Independent Spirit Awards, and nominations for the Critics’ Choice Television Awards and Golden Globes, and has been hailed by many critics as one of the best series of 2021. Furthermore, the American Film Institute named it one of the Top 10 television shows of 2021.
Hence, as the second season concluded back in September 2021, viewers started wondering whether or not the show had been renewed for a third season after so many well-received receptions by the audience and critics around the world. It is no surprise that the network has decided to continue the series, and it appears that the wait for the fans won’t go too long because we have some great news to share!
We’ve put together a quick rundown of everything you need to know about the release date, plot, and cast, so you can get a head start on the next installment and be prepared before the series airs. Here is everything we know about Reservation Dogs Season 3.

“Reservation Dogs continues its remarkable run with critics, fans, and awards all recognizing the singular brilliance of the series created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi,” said Nick Grad, President of Original Programming at FX. “FX is proud to join with our partners at Hulu to order a third season featuring the amazing cast and all of the artists who deliver one of the most original, engaging, and funny shows on television.”
Said Harjo: “I couldn’t be more proud of this show that I created with my friend Taika Waititi. It was born out of a conversation in Taika’s kitchen and has now made its way into the lives of people across the world. The love for Season 2 has been outstanding. Thank you to FX for ordering Season 3, excited to bring you more laughter and love from the Rez. Ahoooo!”
Reservation Dogs Season 3 Release Date
The exact premiere date has yet to be acknowledged as the renewal of the series was just announced a few hours ago, and the production is yet to begin. But it is reported that the new season is expected to be released in 2023 exclusively on Hulu, just like the last two seasons.
The likely month can be around August 2023. On the other hand, this is just speculation that the next season might follow the same pattern and be released in a similar time frame. All these details will be released by the network once the production of the series wraps up on a timely schedule.
Reservation Dogs Season 3 Cast and Crew
The main cast members of the series who are expected to reprise their roles along with their respective character descriptions are as follows:
Devery Jacobs as Elora Danan Postoak: She is the most responsible and driven member of the gang. Elora lost her mother when she was still a toddler.
D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai as Bear Smallhill: Bear sees himself as the “leader” of the gang, despite being the only one in the group to think so. He grew up with only his mother parenting him and is still very close to her. He longs for a relationship with his estranged, deadbeat dad. Bear experiences visions of a spirit guide.
Lane Factor as Chester “Cheese” Williams: More laid back than Elora or Bear, he rolls with the flow of whatever mischief or misadventure comes his way. He lives with his “cousin uncle”, Charley; Cheese tends to connect with various adult characters in the show.
Paulina Alexis as Wilhelmina “Willie Jack” Jacqueline: A tomboy, she is very close with her parents. Daniel was Willie Jack’s cousin, and she is strongly affected by his death.
Harjo co-created “Reservation Dogs” with Taika Waititi. Both serve as executive producers along with Garret Basch. Harjo also serves as showrunner and director on the show. Reservation Dogs is produced by FX Productions.
Reservation Dogs Season 3 Episodes
Reservation Dogs Season 3 is expected to have the same episode count of 8 to 10 episodes with a runtime of 25 to 30 minutes. The first two episodes are expected to be released on the same day, followed by new episodes every week until the season ends.
We speculate that it is intended to follow the same framework as the prior seasons to be consistent. For the time being, we recommend that the viewers should follow the show’s social media handle to stay up to date on the new season.
