There's no news just yet when season three will be released, although it has previously been teased that it will be before the end of the year. Speaking to Deadline about when the new series could air, HBO boss Casey Bloys said that in a "normal world", the show would be out before 2022, adding: "But that would mean we don't get hit with any Covid delays. It's hard to predict right now".
