Marseille Season 3 Release Date: Is It Renewed?

“Marseille” is a French political thriller drama series which got aired on Netflix in 2016 (first season) & in 2018(second season). It consists of two seasons and the creator of this amazing political drama French series is “Dan Franck”. This started streaming on Netflix on July 10, 2015. And you would be surprised to know that “Marseille” is the first French-language original [production] for Netflix. On May 5, 2016, the first season of this series got premiered on Netflix worldwide. The second season got renewed on June 6, 2016. And finally after being the start of the production of the second season in April. In February 2018 the second season of this series got premiered on Netflix and it created a lot of buzz.

This French political & thriller drama series grabbed a lot of viewership because of its amazing plot and storyline. This French-language-based Netflix series is worth watching as it is about a clash of national mentalities which hooked the audience for the last two seasons. But you must know that this French series failed to garner good viewership in France itself. The series had to go through several criticisms in France by many French outlets. Now, you might be thinking that will “Marseille” be returning will another season or not?

Marseille Season 3 Release Date

The show has been called off officially by the makers of the series so it is obvious that the third season of “Marseille” is not returning on Netflix. I think this would be the most shocking as well as sad news for all those who loved this political drama series.

Why Was The Show Called Off Officially?

As I have mentioned earlier that this series failed to garner much attention in France but on Netflix, it did quite well. The series had to face a lot of backlashes from several French news publications. It got a lot of negative reviews in France itself. In “Le Monde” one of the French outlets even published an article criticizing the series and started the series as “Industrial accident”. In the article, it was mentioned that the first season of the show was [passable]. It was also mentioned that the French were unable to seize their audience themselves.

The reason behind the release of the second season of the series is that the second season got renewed right away. In the premiere episode in France, it was able to garner just 4 million views.
