Yes, as detailed above, a third season has now officially been confirmed.

Back in May 2022, HBO executive Francesca Orsi hinted that a season 3 renewal could be on the cards.

She told Deadline that the network was assessing viewership regarding several series including Perry Mason and Winning Time, which were subsequently scrapped after two seasons, and The Gilded Age.

“At this point, we are having conversations regarding viewership relative to budget," she said.

"Each show has a job to do, given the price tag that we give to it, and there’s a viewership. component, and there’s a critical response element to it and, of course, the buzz nature of a show. It’s those elements that we are always keeping in mind and discussing relative to whether or not a show will continue," she continued.

Who could be in the cast of The Gilded Age season 3?

It’s likely we’d see Carrie Coon’s Bertha return alongside the rest of the Russell clan:

  • Morgan Spector as George Russell
  • Taissa Farmiga as Miss Gladys Russell
  • Harry Richardson as Larry Russell

We might also expect the following actors to reprise their roles:

  • Kelly Curran as Enid Winterton
  • Dakin Matthews as Joshua Winterton
  • Denée Benton as Peggy Scott
  • Cynthia Nixon as Mrs Ada Brook
  • Blake Ritson as Oscar van Rhijn
  • David Furr as Dashiell Montgomery
  • Matilda Lawler as Frances Montgomery
  • Ben Ahlers as Jack Treacher
  • Taylor Richardson as Bridget
  • Kelli O'Hara as Aurora Fane

What could happen in The Gilded Age season 3?

While plot details are yet to officially be announced, ahead of the season 3 renewal, writer Sonja Warfield revealed she isn’t worried about coming up with new ideas for further episodes.

She told Town & Country: "There is so much in history [that would work for the show].

"We discovered gems for season two that play into our characters' journeys, and there are so many more things we could play out if we're lucky enough to get a third season."

She added: "In season one, we had Thomas Edison's lights, in season two we have the Tuskegee Institute, and we'll discover what that is in season three."
