The Mosquito Coast Season 3: Is it renewed or canceled?

Unfortunately, the opportunity to watch the third season was short-lived, as Apple TV+ has officially confirmed that the third season has been canceled! 

The news of the series’ cancellation after two seasons isn’t surprising, as the overall reception of the series has been average to mixed among fans and critics worldwide. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, The Mosquito Coast holds an approval rating of 63% based on 46 reviews, with an average rating of 6.36/10. The website’s critics’ consensus reads, “The Mosquito Coast has suspense to spare, but by burying the best parts of its source material in too many twists it fails to turn into a satisfying series.” 

On Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, the series has a score of 55 out of 100 based on 22 reviews, indicating “mixed or average reviews.” The decision comes two weeks after Season 2 ended its run with an explosive finale. Author Paul Theroux told Deadline recently that if there had been a third season “it would segue into the book itself, and the movie’s search for a utopian community.” Also stated, “But we don’t know at the end of the second season if Allie is part of this, or if Margo is on her own. That’s the cliffhanger,” he added, of the explosive ending.
