Most of the fans complained about the 15 minutes runtime of the episodes, as they wanted to watch more of the entertaining comedy. One year has passed after the second season’s premiere, and the fans are eager to know about Special Season 3 Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Storyline, etc. Therefore, we have come up with this write-up to share with the fans everything we know about Special Season 3.
Special Season 3 Release Date
Season 1 of Special premiered on April 12, 2019, with eight episodes. The series was then renewed for another eight episodes for a second season which was announced as the last season. But because the show was well-received, the short-form comedy was extended from 15-minute to half-hour episodes, which was something O’Connell wanted to do. But it was Netflix’s decision to end the series after two seasons. This has been a common occurrence with other comedies as well including Trinkets and Feel Good.

Special Season 3 What Will Happen Next?
“People will be surprised that Special is ending but this is just the tip!” showrunner O’Connell had told The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m not finished telling stories about disability. I’m not finished telling queer stories. This is really just a beginning of a new chapter, so hang tight, baby, I’m coming!” But his stories will, unfortunately, not be under the title of Special for Netflix. He added, “Creatively, they’ve been dream partners and [let me] make exactly the show that I wanted to make. I’d rather make two seasons of television that are exactly my vision rather than four seasons where I felt like I was making creative compromises. I feel very fortunate for that.” He had earlier planned for three seasons.
Netflix probably canceled the show based on internal viewing metrics in comparison to the cost of doing additional seasons. O’Connell also explained, “Netflix told me pretty early on that it was going to be the final season and I appreciated that because I was able to craft a season that felt very much like a final season. The story will feel complete.” With the extended episodes, we hopefully got to see everything he wanted to tell us.
Special Season 3 – The Plot
Special is a unique series that portrays the real struggles of a gay man named Ryan Hayes. He has a condition called cerebral palsy, and therefore he hesitates to mix with others and searching partners for himself. But later, he decides to recreate himself and follow his dreams.
Special shows the struggles and hardships that a person with some disability faces. The series gives a powerful message of not discriminating against anyone because he belongs to the LGBTQ community or has some disability.
