What can we expect to happen in Young Royals Season 3?
Although the creators of the show haven’t provided any official synopsis, we can presume the story arc that the upcoming season will possibly take. Firstly, season 3 will presumably pick up from where season 2 left. In season 2, we see the secrets unfolding as the unexpected reengage dissuades Simon’s plan. Considering how dramatic and scandalous things were left in season 2, we expect even more scandal in the upcoming season.
Additionally, we bet that season 3 will explore the ramifications of Wilhelm’s earth-shattering confession among the Swedish public, especially when they will realize that their future king is a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community.
In a conversation with Digital Spy, when Omar Rudberg, who is reprising the role of Simon, was asked how the third season would unfold, he said:
“That is so hard because it can go in so many different directions. I have a lot of ideas… Me and Lisa Ambjörn, the head writer, we want to sit down and talk about what we see and what we feel, and the ideas, and what’s actually going to happen in the story. I feel like it was a lot clearer for me when it came to season two. It was like, ‘This happened in season one. This can happen in season two.’ With season three, it’s like, ‘Now we’re talking. Now it’s getting real.’”
Who are the cast members of Young Royals Season 3?
At the time of writing, no new cast members have been announced for the upcoming season. So, we expect the following members to be featured in Young Royals Season 3:
- Edvin Ryding as Prince Wilhelm of Sweden, aka “Wille”
- Omar Rudberg as Simon Eriksson
- Malte Gårdinger as August of Årnäs
- Frida Argento as Sara Eriksson
- Nikita Uggla as Felice Ehrencrona
When can we expect Young Royals Season 3 to arrive on Netflix?
