The third season of the American program “Marco Polo” is currently suspended between the personal beliefs and the objectives of the producers. In July 2016, the last scene appeared on the screen. Since then, the theory has conveyed the gist of any news about the show. Netflix and producer The Weinstein Company left the show after two seasons. However, fans prayed for the revival of this show. According to sources, Netflix lost approximately $200 million in the first two seasons. Still, does the budget explain the reason, or is it something different in the works that led to the deletion?
So what’s the release date?
The fate of Marco Polo Season 3 has been in a pending state since its premiere in the last episode of Season 2 in July 2016. After suffering a huge loss, Netflix announced on December 12, 2016 that it would cancel the third season of “Marco Polo” for approximately US$200 million. The decision was made with the understanding and permission of Weinstein, the producer of the series.
Even after the news that the show was cancelled after the end of the second season came out, the rumors and speculations about Marco Polo’s third season never weakened. Although Netflix or the producer has never issued an official statement about Marco Polo’s return in season three, these conversations have made fans hope they can have the third season.
In addition, when Netflix COO Ted Sarandos expressed his views on the possibilities and future of Marco Polo Season 3, the Hollywood Reporter’s complete TV executive roundtable made headlines. HBO’s Richard Plepler, AMC’s Josh Sapan, and NBC Universal’s Bonnie Hammer, and other well-respected television industry authorities also attended the conference.
No matter what the meeting was, there was no news and no agreement was reached. Other details and reunion transactions are kept secret, so the possibility of Marco Polo’s third season entering production is still uncertain and unclear.
These conversations undoubtedly brought a ray of hope and trust between waiting and eager fans, as they continue to keep their fingers crossed.
