In 2014, Netflix released the first season of its ambitious medieval drama series Marco Polo. The series was made on a big budget and has all the elements to become a long-running and successful drama. However, the fans have been waiting for Marco Polo season 3 for more than five years. Unfortunately, we know very little about it.
Marco Polo is an original American historical drama series from Netflix that debuted on the streaming service in 2014. The series is based on the early travels of the famous Venetian explorer Marco Polo. The show follows a young Marco at the court of the Mongol ruler Kublai Khan around the turn of the fourteenth century. The series stars Lorenzo Richelmy in the titular role.
The show created by John Fusco received unfavorable reviews from critics upon its first season release. On the other hand, the show managed to do quite well with the viewers. As a result, Netflix renewed the show for a second season. But will there be Marco Polo season 3? Let’s discuss everything we know about it.
Will there be Marco Polo season 3?
Marco Polo, which originally belonged to Starz, found its home on the streaming platform Netflix. Although there was a gap of two years in the first two seasons. The first season of the series premiered on Netflix in 2014. In contrast, the second season dropped on the streaming service in October 2016. Now, as for Marco Polo Season 3, we’re afraid we’ve got some bad news for fans of the show. Despite a large budget and large-scale production, Marco Polo did not achieve the goal the creators hoped for.
As a result, The Weinstein Company and Netflix have decided to cancel the series ahead of Marco Polo season 3. The news comes as no surprise, as the show has yet to find its target audience. The show’s fans were disappointed by the news. Although several campaigns and petitions have been released by the fans for Marco Polo Season 3. However, it has been more than half a decade and we have to inform the fans that the third season for Marco Polo may never take place.
What did Cindy Holland say?
As news of the Marco Polo season 3 cancellation surfaced, Cindy Holland, the vice president of original content for Netflix, released a public statement on the matter. In her comments, she expressed her gratitude to the people who worked on the show and praised the actors for “brilliant” performances.
