Will the fans get to see another season? Here is everything we know so far about Sort Of Season 3.

We have exciting news to share with Sort Of fans! Season 2 ended its run earlier on December 6, 2022, and we have already had another season greenlit in a few weeks by the respective network. This makes it clear that the demand and love for this television series is just growing and won’t be coming to a halt anytime soon. As a result, the inquisitiveness of the fans about how the series will be able to expand for another season is at an all-time high. 

On the other hand, the initial episodes alone make it evident that the series has a lot of potential to be developed and explored further. If you are one of those who want to get clarity about the renewal status, then look no further as we’ve compiled all of the relevant information on Sort Of Season 3 status, release date, plot, and other crucial details since the announcement all over social media. Continue reading until you reach the end to find all of your answers.

Sort Of Season 3 Renewal Status

It is no surprise that the show is returning for another season, as the reviews indicate the show’s popularity along with the fairly good critical acclaim from the audience and critics. The series has been reported an approval rating of 100% based on 8 reviews with an average rating of 8.8/10. In addition to this, it was the most nominated television series at the 10th Canadian Screen Awards in 2022, with 13 nominations. It was also shortlisted for the fan-voted Audience Choice Award. It received a Peabody Award in the Entertainment category in 2022.

“Baig and Filippo, alongside our partners at CBC and Sienna Films, continue to deliver a heartfelt, empathetic and engaging story and we’re thrilled we get to continue following Sabi, their family, 7ven and the Kaneko-Bauers on their journeys in the new season,” Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max said in a statement.

The renewal comes as a slate of other scripted series that were removed from HBO Max as part of a broader financial review of the streamer’s slate that has resulted in a purge of a number of titles at the end of the calendar year, including Gordita Chronicles, which was recently removed, and Minx, whose second-season renewal also has been reversed. Since Sort Of is a co-production, it is likely much cheaper to produce than some of the other scripted series that didn’t make the cut.

Sort Of Season 3 Potential Release Date and Time Slot

After waiting for a few weeks the good news has finally arrived! In December 2022, the fandom does not need to worry as the show has been greenlit for another season which will continue the plot further. The prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged. But if we have to predict the potential release date of Sort Of Season 3, it might happen sometime around late 2023 or maybe in 2024.

It is expected to air at the same time slot of 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on Tuesday on CBC and later on HBO Max. As stated above, a statement about the show’s official release date and time slot is still pending verification by the network. So, this is just speculation 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 same schedule.
