Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father: Only two episodes in season 3?

Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father

Fans of the comedy docuseries were surprised by the nature of the show's return.

If you're strapped for cash right now, Netflix has you covered...

We'd all love to drop everything every now and then and just head out into the world, experiencing new things and making unforgettable memories. On the other hand, it's not exactly practical. 

Everybody has responsibilities, and then there's the expense of travelling; it's not as easy as book-and-go most of the time, but it's always worth the wait to head out and go somewhere new when the time's right. Fortunately, though, there are some great travel shows which allow audiences to accompany people as they head from place to place. 

An Idiot Abroad is arguably the most loved example, but Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father offers similarly entertaining viewing. We've seen the popular comedian and his dad - Michael Whitehall - visit Asia and Europe, but now it's time for them to take on America!

Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father

Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father season 3 episodes

With season 3 taking the odd couple across the United States, there's a lot of laughs and surprises this time around. 

We see the pair navigate Los Angeles and Compton in the first episode, involving them going to a yoga studio and a themed restaurant called Cafe Gratitude. Hopping aboard a Greyhound bus, they set off to Phoenix, Arizona and get involved in the world of indie wrestling. 

In episode 2, there's a hilarious game of bingo, tap lessons and then a visit to a shooting range. Moving on from Phoenix they head on over to Las Vegas where they encounter a number of funny situations, from a car chase imitation to a very interesting meal. Along with a Magic Mike experience and more, there's plenty to remember across the two episodes in season 3 on Netflix, but is that really it?

Season 1 had six episodes and 2 had five - is there more added soon?

More coming to Netflix?

In the age of streaming, we're often surprised when episodes are uploaded to the likes of Netflix weekly. We're so used to binging things in just a few sittings that waiting for episodes can feel a little jarring now. 

Is that what this is? Are we waiting for more episodes? Well, in this case, the answer is no!

Although previous seasons have been lengthier, Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father season 3 is just spread out across two episodes - that's all there is. It's pretty surprising, but perhaps they just felt they could package it all quite briefly this time around, giving fans one short burst of palatable viewing. Considering the note it left on though, season 4 looks doubtful...

Will there be a season 4?

The way season 3 ends definitely feels like Jack was happy to wrap up the show with a pretty perfect and lovely conclusion. 

As episode 2 reaches a close, the pair reminisce their experiences over the last two episodes, and Michael very honestly opens up about his age, expressing his belief that he can't continue to do things like this much longer. In response, Jack tears up, admitting how lucky he feels to be able to go on these adventures with his dad and share that bond. 

"Home is wherever you are," says Jack. It's a genuinely beautiful moment, and it would be hard to imagine them rolling out another series after that. It's a wonderful note to end on - the pair saying "love you" just before the credits roll.
