Home Before Dark Season 3 Release Date: With buzzy original shows like “Ted Lasso” and “Severance,” Apple TV+ is slowly adding more and more content to compete with streaming services that have been around longer.”
Home Before Dark,” a drama about a detective, is one of the best shows on the site. Brooklynn Prince (“Cocaine Bear”) plays young reporter Hilde Lisko. The character is based on a real girl named Hilde Lysiak, who started following stories and writing about them when she was only eight years old, just like her father did.
“Home Before Dark” is partly based on her real life, with young Hilde moving from Brooklyn, New York, to the small hometown of her father Matthew Lisko, played by Jim Sturgess. Hilde soon finds out about the strange case of a boy who went missing years ago. She is driven to solve the case.
Soon, she finds out that her father was best friends with the stolen boy and was there when the boy was taken. Even though everyone in town is against her, Hilde won’t give up. She quickly finds a group of like-minded kids who help her solve the case.
The first season of “Home Before Dark” started on Apple TV+ on April 3, 2020. A second season with a new case started on June 11, 2021, and new shows came out every Friday.
The last episode of Season 2 came out in August 2021, and now, after all this time, fans really want to know what happens to Hilde and the other characters. Here’s what we know about a possible third season of “Home Before Dark” so far.
Why Hasn’t Season 3 of Home Before Dark Come Out Yet?
As of the summer of 2023, there has been no official word from Apple about whether or not a third season of “Home Before Dark” has been given the go-ahead to be written and made. That’s not a good sign, but since the show hasn’t been officially canceled, it means a Season 3 could still happen, even though the last episodes of Season 2 came out more than two years ago.
If the fan-favorite and buzz-making show, which was one of the first big ones on Apple TV+, comes back, it will have to answer a lot of story questions that were left unanswered at the end of Season 2.
Another option is that “Home Before Dark” has already been renewed but it hasn’t been made public yet. This would give the people who work on the show time to work on new episodes without having to hurry.
What Could Happen in Season 3 of Home Before Dark?
In the second season of “Home Before Dark,” Hilde dives right into the case of Strata Tech, a company that has been polluting the town’s water source for years without anyone knowing about it. After Hilde finds out that her grandfather’s illness is probably caused by the same thing, her whole family joins her in her fight for justice.
In the Season 2 finale, Hilde and her family and friends get the town to come together and arrest the Strata Tech leaders for their crimes. But the story doesn’t end there, because the last few minutes of Season 2 set up Season 3 with a new case.
At the end of Season 2, Hilde and her friends stumble upon a crime scene where it looks like someone was killed. But the most shocking thing is that Hilde’s diary has been stolen and brought to the murder scene as proof.
It looks like Hilde won’t have to force herself into the case next time, since she is clearly linked to the crime in some way. Since it’s a murder case, Season 3 of “Home Before Dark” might take a darker turn.
Hilde might not be able to investigate because the crime is so sad, but we all know that nothing will stop the young reporter from doing her job.
Who Would Be in Season 3 of Home Before Dark?
The main cast of “Home Before Dark” is likely to be back for Season 3.
This includes Brooklynn Prince and Jim Sturgess, as well as Abby Miller as Hilde’s mom, Bridget Jensen, Kylie Rogers as Hilde’s older sister, Izzy Lisko, and Jibrail Nantambu and Deric McCabe as Hilde’s best friends, Donny Davis and Wesley ‘Spoon’ Witherspoon, respectively.
Frank Briggs Jr. (Michael Weston), Principal Kim Collins (Joelle Carter), and Sheriff Mackenzie “Trip” Johnson (Aziza Scott) are also expected to be back for a third season.
In “Home Before Dark,” Hilde’s family loves that she wants to be a reporter. Hilde’s father was a writer in New York City. Hilde’s sister Izzy is only a few years older than she is and has other interests, but she still helps out when she can.
In Season 2, Izzy doesn’t want to work with Hilde as much because it gets in the way of her social life, but she comes around. As for their mother, Bridget, she is upset with her husband Matthew at first because he has been keeping secrets about his past from her, but she is also fully behind Hilde and her desire to investigate and report.
