The Circle season 2 came into our lives on April 14, and less than a month later, it’s leaving us. That’s right: the season finale is out, and you’ll be able to find out the identity of the new champion influencer.
Before the finale, the remaining players were:
- River, aka Lee, cat-fishing as a queer free spirit in his 20s
- Trevor, aka Deleesa, cat-fishing as her IRL husband
- Joe, aka Jack and Lisa, cat-fishing as a middle-aged gay man
This season’s theme has been strategy. From the beginning, this round of players seemed to be pretty clued-in to how this competition of influencers works. A few of them came in as a catfish, which didn’t seem to be a villainized approach, but rather, a smart way to enter this game.
Maybe you’ve already watched the finale, and you know who’s throwing around large piles of cash in their bedroom and laughing maniacally. Maybe you’re already wondering when we get more of this show, because even though we’re all sick of quarantine, we don’t mind watching other people trapped in small apartments as they try to best others in an internet popularity contest.
With that in mind, here’s what we know about season 3.
Has the show been renewed for a third season?
Yes! The Circle was such a hit after season 1 that Netflix renewed it for two more seasons in March 2020. That’s right; pre-pandemic, Netflix had a hit show about social isolation.
“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” said Brandon Riegg, Netflix vice president of nonfiction series and comedy specials, when the streamer renewed The Circle, Love Is Blind, and Rhythm + Flow and commissioned a new series with Marie Kondo, Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo. “We pride ourselves on creating a favorite show for any taste, and we’re thrilled fans embraced all of these series with such enthusiasm and shared passion. We look forward to sparking more joy for our members.”
When can we expect it?
There is no set release date for The Circle season 3, but journalist Martin Holmes tweeted in November 2020 that the show has reportedly already filmed seasons 2 and 3.

This means season 3 might be coming much sooner than 2022…
What new twists will the show have in season 3?
In season season 2, we definitely got a few surprises. The biggest one was that two catfishes, Jack and Lisa, were kicked off the show but did not go home. Instead, they were assigned a new character to play. Their character, John, ended up as a finalist, so this model turned out to be pretty successful.
Season 2 also seemed to feature even more interactive activities and competitions, and the players were generally less bored or left with time on their hands. This can only mean that season 3 will include even more twists or added elements to keep things interesting. Right? Netflix must know by now that The Circle fans are the kind of people who enjoy a good plot twist—that’s what keeps a game interesting, after all!
