Due to its innovative take on Norse mythology, “Ragnarok” is a fantasy drama that everyone is binge-watching on Netflix. The program adds a reincarnation element to the original idea, rather than depicting the Norse gods and their opponents exclusively as old characters who have been at it for aeons. This turns “Ragnarok” into a superhero origin story, in which young Magne (David Stakston) discovers he is the thunder god Thor, much to his surprise. With his newfound abilities, he must save the end of the world by battling ancient giants who are attempting to cause Ragnarok, a global climatic shift, by impersonating a rich human family.
By the end of Season 2, the little town of Edda is swarming with mythical figures, all of whom are on a collision path. All that’s left is for a third season to illustrate how the gods’ fight with their foes plays out. Let’s see what we know so far about “Ragnarok” Season 3’s release date, cast, and narrative.
When will Ragnarok Season 3 be available?
Season 2 of “Ragnarok” is set to premiere on Netflix in May 2021, and it’s no surprise that fans have been wondering if the fantasy series would return for a third season. Thankfully, several of the supporting cast confirmed in late 2021 that “Ragnarok” will return for a third season (via YouTube). “It’s official: Another season is coming,” Netflix said on the “Ragnarok” web page. The real question now is when the third (and, yes, last) season will be available on Netflix.
Season 3 has yet to be given an official release date. “Ragnarok’s” first two seasons were both brief and powerful, with only six episodes each. This will most likely apply to Season 3, therefore look at the debut dates of prior seasons to get an estimate of how long it will take to make. Because Season 1 came out on January 31, 2020, and Season 2 on May 27, 2021, “Ragnarok” Season 3 is likely to arrive in the second half of 2022.
Who will appear in Season 3 of Ragnarok?
There’s no reason to suppose that everyone who is still alive at the end of Season 2 of “Ragnarok” won’t return for a future Season 3. Magne (David Stakston) and Laurits (Jonas Strand Gravli), the modern-day Loki, are undoubtedly the central characters. You may also anticipate all of the important human characters, as well as their newly found companion gods like Iman (Danu Sunth), to return.
The Jutul family of apocalypse-loving, super-wealthy legendary giants will almost surely return, though it looks like they’ll be without their nominal father, Vidar (Gsli rn Gararsson), who died unexpectedly halfway through Season 2. In the Season 2 conclusion, the strong Saxa (Theresa Frostad Eggesb) appears to support Magne, while Fjor (Herman Tmmeraas) and Ran (Synnve Macody Lund) are still firmly in the evil camp. There’s no knowing what they’re capable of with Laurits (at least temporarily) on their side.
No new characters have been announced yet. Still, there are a lot more gods and their foes in Norse mythology than “Ragnarok” has depicted so far, and it’s impossible to say how many more the season will introduce.
What happens in Season 3 of Ragnarok?
Season 1 of “Ragnarok” focuses on Magne’s rising abilities and his battles with the Jutul family, while Season 2 ups the ante by exposing viewers to a slew of other Norse god reincarnations. It also indicates that Laurits (Jonas Strand Gravli), Magne’s (David Stakston) half-brother, is the personification of Loki the trickster. With Magne betraying Laurits’ confidence and the latter’s manipulations releasing the deadly Jörmungandr — the Thor-killing world serpent — the sophomore season concludes with the siblings in full conflict.
Even with their prospective partnership with Saxa (Theresa Frostad Eggesb), Magne and the other resurrected gods are going to be in a world of trouble if Season 3 follows its predecessor’s path and starts just where the finale of “Ragnarok” Season 2 left things. Not only are the remaining Jutuls as destructive as ever, but Laurits has firmly placed himself in the anti-Magne camp, and his fatal “tapeworm” is free to wander. Even without all of the additional dangers, it’s reasonable to predict that Season 3 of “Ragnarok” will be extremely perilous for the characters.
