TNT’s period crime drama – The Alienist, inspired by a novel by the same name, came to the end of its second season in August 2020. It has been a year since we witnessed the release of the previous season. Fans are eagerly waiting for its next season. The Alienist has such a great storyline that it can successfully run for several seasons. The series has received great appreciation from both fans and critics. Thanks to Netflix, it again came into the limelight after its International release. Well, we have good news for you. The show is ready to return for its third installment.
Seeing the release date of previous seasons, it takes almost 18 months for the next season to come up. So, we can expect its third season to come by mid-2021. Nothing can be said for sure due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Even if the show’s filming and production get halted, we can expect it to come sometime in 2022. Let’s hope that everything goes well so that we don’t have to hold up for long. Season 2 came on August 9, 2020, and consisted of eight episodes. Taking this into account, Season 3 shall also consist of eight or more episodes.
