Condor premiered in 2018 on the Audience Network and was renewed for a second season in 2019. However, due to the pandemic and the shutdown of Audience, the second season was delayed until 2020, when it aired on C More and RTÉ2. In 2021, Epix picked up the series and started airing the second season on November 7. But what about Condor Season 3? Will there be a third season of this gripping show? Here’s everything we know so far.
Condor TV series is based on the novel Six Days of the Condor by James Grady and its 1975 film adaptation Three Days of the Condor. The series stars Max Irons as Joe Turner, a young idealist who joins the CIA and hopes to reform it from within. But when his colleagues are killed in a brutal attack, he becomes a fugitive and a target of a sinister plot that threatens millions of lives.
How Many Seasons Does Condor Have?
So far, Condor has two seasons, each consisting of 10 episodes. The first season aired from June 6 to August 15, 2018, on Audience Network. The second season aired from June 9 to August 11, 2020, on C More and RTÉ2. The second season also premiered on Epix on November 7, 2021, and will conclude on January 9, 2022.
What is the Ending of Condor?
The second season of Condor ended with a shocking twist that left Joe’s fate hanging in the balance. After uncovering a Russian plot to assassinate a presidential candidate and expose a CIA mole, Joe managed to stop the assassination and expose the mole, who turned out to be his uncle Bob Partridge (William Hurt). However, as he left the scene, he was shot by Gabrielle Joubert (Leem Lubany), a former Mossad agent who had been hunting him since the first season. Joubert then called Reuel Abbott (Bob Balaban), the deputy director of the CIA and Bob’s criminal partner, and told him that she had killed Joe. The season ended with Joe lying on the ground, bleeding profusely.
Will there be a Condor Season 3?
The good news is that Epix has officially confirmed Condor Season 3. In an Interview with the Deadline, Michael Wright, the man in charge of Epix said there’s also some hope for fans of Condor and Chapelwaite.
Inspired by Three Days of the Condor, Condor originally aired on DirecTV’s Audience Network before moving to Epix. Wright says that a third season of the series, which stars Max Irons, is in development.
“It’s not picked up yet. I don’t want to give anybody on the show false hopes. But it’s definitely a show that is in development and is in our consideration. We loved it.”Michael Wright
Is Condor coming back in 2023?
Yes, Condor is returning in 2023 or 2024 for its third season. Epix has not announced an exact release date yet, but we can expect it to premiere sometime in late 2023 or early 2024. The third season’s production likely started, depending on the pandemic situation and the availability of the cast and crew.
Condor Season 3 Release Date: Speculation!
Based on the previous seasons’ release dates and Epix’s announcement, we speculate that Condor Season 3 will release sometime between November 2023 and January 2024. This is assuming that there are no major delays or complications in the production process. Of course, this is our best guess and we will update this article as soon as we get more official information from Epix.
Condor Season 3 Plot: What’s next?
The second season of Condor followed Joe as he tried to uncover the truth behind a mysterious bioweapon used to kill his friend and former colleague Tracy Crane (Eric Johnson). He also had to deal with his estranged uncle Bob Partridge (William Hurt), who was revealed to be alive and working for a secret organization called Cicada. Joe teamed up with Kat Gnezdy (Isidora Goreshter), a Russian journalist who had access to Tracy’s files, and Gordon Piper (Toby Leonard Moore), a former MI6 agent who was also investigating Cicada. Along the way, they faced threats from Gabrielle Joubert (Leem Lubany), a former Mossad assassin hired by Cicada to kill Joe, and Reuel Abbott (Bob Balaban), the Deputy Director of the CIA who was also involved in Cicada’s scheme.
The season finale saw Joe and Kat infiltrate Cicada’s headquarters in Moscow. They discovered that Cicada planned to release a more potent version of the bioweapon across Europe and Asia, triggering a global pandemic that would wipe out millions of people. Joe managed to stop the attack by destroying Cicada’s servers, but not before Joubert shot him in the chest. Meanwhile, Gordon confronted Abbott at his home and killed him after learning he was behind Tracy’s death. Gordon then called Robin Larkin (Constance Zimmer), a CIA officer helping Joe, and told her he had evidence to expose Cicada’s network. However, before he could send it to her, he was shot by an unknown sniper.
The third season of Condor will likely pick up from where the second season left off and explore the aftermath of Joe’s and Gordon’s actions. Will Joe survive his gunshot wound? Will Gordon’s evidence reach Robin? Will Joubert escape or face justice? Will Cicada be exposed or continue its operations? Will Joe find peace or continue his fight against corruption? These are some of the questions that fans hope to see answered in the potential third season of Condor.
