It’s been three months and more since we last saw Siren. However, after watching the finale, fans were clamoring to know more about Siren Season 4. Has it been renewed? Well, the fate of the series remains in jeopardy following the broadcaster’s announcement. Soon the fans signed a petition for the fourth run. But so far nothing is known. While the huge cliffhanger has opened the door for the next run, the network has something else in mind for Siren season 4. Keep reading to find out more.
Created by Dean White and Eric Wald, Siren focuses on the struggles of a mysterious young woman trying to learn more about her imprisoned older sister. So she landed in the coastal town of Bristol Cove, Washington, popular for its legends of spotting mermaids and mermen in the past. Soon marine biologists, Maddie and Ben, work to find out what prompted the deep sea’s hunter to land.
Siren season 4: is it happening?
The first season aired in March 2018 and became the most watched series on Freeform. The series was a highly critically acclaimed series. It received an approval rating of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes and 6.9 out of 10 on IMDb. But by the end of the third season, viewership continued to decline. So instead of continuing with the fourth season, the network decided to shun the show. In 2020, Freeform canceled the show and announced the third season as the final season.
Will it ever return?
Shortly after Freeform announced it was canceling the show, the drama lovers immediately signed a petition to renew Siren Season 4. Many stated that the series deserves a happy ending. It’s popular enough to return with its fourth run. So the network would have to reverse its decision. Currently there are 1838 signatures, less than 2500 signatures. However, the petition did not work well as the network remained silent regarding the fourth season. However, there is hope that streaming platforms such as Netflix and Prime Video can bring the show back to life as it has with other series such as Lucifer.
Siren Season 4: Production Details
As mentioned above, the broadcast network canceled the show. However, if we consider that the series will be revived by a streaming platform sometime in the future, there is a good chance that production will continue a year later. This is because the showrunner has to deal with the star cast and tight schedule of the filmmaker. So we can expect filming to start sometime in 2023.
A quick summary!
The finale focused on Helen and her fellow hybrids’ struggle to restore order, as Tia’s song had infected many people in the town. While Tia tried to convince young Hope to support her, Ben and Ryn sought military aid. Maddie discussed with Robb the possibility of neutralizing Tia’s song. The cure worked well. In the depths of the sea Hope was trapped and Tia wanted to use her as bait to lure Ryn. On land, Donna’s ghost appeared before her daughter Cami and warned her of the situation.
Ryn was ready to face the mermaid, while Ben decided to save Hope using his newfound ability. He rescued Hope and told her to surface as this was the safe place. Meanwhile, Tia’s army outnumbered Ryn, but the tide turned the table when Yura arrived with Robb’s colony. Ryn fiercely fought Tia and killed her. Later everyone bowed to her when she became the alpha of all merpeople.
Siren Season 4: What Could Have Happened?
While everyone has moved on and decided to live as they please, Ryn is still searching for Ben, who never returned. Although he can breathe underwater, some believe he died. But if it returns, we might see Ryn’s chronicles and how she reunites with Ben. Furthermore, there is a chance that Ben is living his life with Hope somewhere under the ocean. So the upcoming season can focus on the fate of the couple.
Siren season 4: cast details
As mentioned above, the fourth season could focus on Ben. So no doubt Alex Roe will return as Ben Pownall with Eline Powell as Ryn Fisher. However, it remains unclear if Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) will return after leaving town and having bitter memories. Xander McClure’s (Ian Verdun) chances of returning are also slim.
Siren season 4: release date
Freeform has yet to revive the series after announcing its cancellation. But if the series is filmed, it may not be long before you return to your screen. Filming only takes six to seven months to complete. So taking this into consideration, we can expect season 4 of Siren to air sometime in 2024. Stay informed. TechRadar247 will keep you posted.
