Renewal For A Third Season
The show, which has a high status, has not confirmed the third season yet. The first season was released on February 17, 2017, and after two years on June 9, 2019, the second season dropped. The first season was well received by the audience and had a positive response from the critics. However, the second season had a slight drop in the ratings as well as audience response. So far, there has not been any announcement about a third season from the makers. Reese Witherspoon, who plays one of the protagonists Madeline Mackenzie, was recently asked about the show’s third season to which she responded that one never knows as season two was also a surprise.
