Secret  City is an Australian Political and Spy thriller series that premiered way back in 2016 by Foxtel’s Showcase. The series became available for a wider global audience when it premiered on Netflix in 2018 and has become a talk of the town! It carries IMDb ratings of 7.4/10 and 100% ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. The series has earned a wider fanbase and curious watchers are wondering when season 3 will come out!

As of September 2021, no news has come that would indicate that Secret City has been renewed for season 3! It still remains uncertain whether the series will get renewed at all or not! But one thing is sure, we shouldn’t lose hope yet! Why? Well, the series has not been officially called off, which is a sign in itself that the creators are seriously considering the renewal of Secret City season 3!

Moreover, it took almost three years for Foxtel and Matchbook pictures to release the second season of Secret City, so if we do the math here, then it can surely tell us when season 3 of Secret Season will come out (if it ever does). According to calculations, the Secret City Season 3 may come out in 2022 (2016=>2019=>2022).
