Season 3 of The Cuphead Show! recently premiered on Netflix on November 18, 2022. Consisting of 11 episodes for fans to check out, along with a couple of holiday-themed instalments, fans have been preoccupied with something else. Amidst all hijinks of Cuphead and Mugman, their minds are wondering whether The Cuphead Show! will be renewed for a fourth season or not.
For those unversed, The Cuphead Show! is an animated series, based on the popular run ‘n’ gun indie game, Cuphead, which was recently released as a DLC expansion, called Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course. It’s a popular animated slapstick comedy, developed by Dave Wasson for Netflix, and premiered worldwide on February 18, 2022.
As of now, the show has streamed 36 episodes on Netflix. However, will the fate of the show be sealed at 36? Read to find out more.
The Cuphead Show!: Is it renewed for a season 4 on Netflix?
Initially, Netflix had initially ordered 48 episodes of the show; however, the authenticity of such news is to be doubted. According to Netflix Life, “It looks like the rumor started from this article from Animation Magazine. However, that article says the initial order consisted of 36 episodes, not 48. It’s possible there was an error when it was first reported that has since been corrected.”
If that’s the case, then The Cuphead Show! seems to have sealed its fate. Not only that, but if you look at it plot-wise, the third season has wrapped all the loose ends, concluding with a fitting plot structure. The first season consisted of 13 episodes, the second, 12 and season 3 contained 11. The total is summed up to 36.
Be that as it may, we can never chuck out the possibility of renewal in the future. However, The Cuphead Show! seems to want only a three-part story and that too, to be released in a span of one year.
The official synopsis of The Cuphead Show! season 3 reads:
“From hijinks and heebie-jeebies to holiday cheer: this season’s got it all as the boys go big to trick the Devil — and stir up trouble all over town! Follow the misadventures of the impulsive Cuphead and his easily swayed brother Mugman in this animated series based on the hit video game.”
