The second instalment of the Breathe franchise, Into the Shadows, has just premiered on Prime Video, but fans are already wondering when the series will return for season 3.
Right now, there aren’t many Indian crime thriller series bigger than the Breathe franchise.
The series got off to a flying start after its premiere back in 2018 and it’s safe to say that season 2, Breathe: Into the Shadows, has lived up to all expectations.
The latest instalment may have only just been released on Prime Video, but fans are already wondering if and when the show will return for a third season.
Will there be a third season of Breathe?
At the time of writing, Breathe has not been renewed for a third season, nor has it been officially cancelled.
This lack of information isn’t too much of a surprise at this point. Networks and producers alike are taking their time with announcing new renewals because of the coronavirus pandemic, so fans shouldn’t start to worry about the future of Breathe just yet.
Going forward, the only thing that we think would limit the renewal status of Breathe would be audience reception. To be blunt, if the most recent series is watched by enough people online and the general viewer feedback on social media is positive, then renewal is almost guaranteed.
We will keep you updated with more information on the future of Breathe as and when the news is confirmed by either the networks or by the production team, so keep checking back on this page.
When will Breathe season 3 premiere?
With no official confirmation that the series will be making a return, there is no information available regarding a possible release date.
Although considering the production schedule of the previous two iterations in the Breathe franchise, an optimistic prediction would be February 2021.
However, playing devil’s advocate, there is the chance that production will be severely delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. If the series does experience filming issues, then a more realistic prediction would be mid-2021.
Again, we will keep updating this page with more information as it is confirmed, so keep checking back.
Who will be in the new season?
The casting for Breathe has been an interesting one, swapping out the majority of characters but having the central protagonist moving between season.
In season 3, we can expect both Abishek Bachchan (Dr. Avinash Sabharwal) and Amit Sadh (Kabir Sawant) to reprise their roles.
Aside from these two, it is difficult to predict the main cast without any officially confirmed information. Personally, I could imagine Nithya Menen (Abha Sabharwal), Ivana Kaur (Siya Sabharwal) and Saiyami Kher (Shirley), having reoccurring roles but again, nothing is yet confirmed.
