More than two years after the original premiere, season 2 of The Brotherhood has finally arrived on Netflix. Set in the world of organized crime, the Brazilian production is successful with the platform’s subscribers. Anyone who has already checked out the 6 episodes of the second year wants to know: will the series have a 3rd season on Netflix?
“An honest lawyer faces a moral dilemma after cops force her to rat on her brother, who is in prison and leads a rising criminal faction,” reads The Brotherhood’s official synopsis on Netflix.
Created by Pedro Morelli, the series has Naruna Costa and Seu Jorge in the main roles. The cast of A Irmandade also includes Hermila Guedes, Lee Taylor, Danilo Grangheia and Wesley Guimarães.
Below we explain everything you need to know about the renewal status, plot, cast and premiere of The Brotherhood season 3 on Netflix.
Has the Brotherhood been renewed for season 3 on Netflix?
Netflix has yet to confirm the renewal of The Brotherhood for a third season. But that doesn’t mean the series was cancelled.
Typically, it takes Netflix from two weeks to three months to disclose the fate of its original productions. That is: fans can expect news until August 2022.
Given its high ratings, The Brotherhood has a good chance of being renewed for a third year. After all, the series was in the Top 10 of 6 countries, including Brazil.
Who Returns in Season 3 of The Brotherhood?
If Netflix chooses to renew Brotherhood for season 3, Naruna Costa should return as the protagonist Cristina.
The fate of Edson, the character of Seu Jorge, is not confirmed. The actor may return in flashback scenes, but his return has yet to be defined.
Hermila Guedes should also return as Darlene, one of the most important characters in Brazilian Netflix production.
The cast of the 3rd season of A Irmandade should also include Lee Taylor (Ivan), Wesley Guimarães (Marcel), Danilo Grangheia (Andrade) and Pedro Wagner (Carniça).
Discover the plot of season 3 of The Brotherhood
Season 3 of The Brotherhood is set to take place right after the shocking finale of Year Two.
At the end of season 2, the faction manages to expand its influence throughout the city of São Paulo. To symbolize the change, the criminal organization chooses a new icon: the Ouroboros, a snake that swallows its own tail.
Very importantly, the move represents a major renewal of the gang. The oldest version of the organization dies with Edson.
With the farewell of Seu Jorge’s character, the gang undergoes an intense process of revitalization, with new members and very dangerous ideologies.
In season 3 of A Irmandade, the main theme should be the gang’s new plans and the relationship between criminals and favela residents.
The Brotherhood season 3 premiere date on Netflix
As the 3rd season of The Brotherhood has not yet been confirmed by Netflix, it is difficult to speculate on the premiere date of the new episodes.
The Brotherhood had a hiatus of more than 2 years between seasons 1 and 2. The delay was caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
So the third year shouldn’t take that long to debut. If Netflix renews The Brotherhood for season 3, the new episodes could arrive in mid-2023 or 2024.
In the meantime, the two seasons of The Brotherhood are still available on Netflix.
