Like Netflix’s hit LGBTQ+ series Heartstopper, Young Royals has stolen the hearts of many fans with its authentic queer representation.


The second season dropped on the streamer earlier in November and left many questions hanging in the air so, naturally, thoughts are already turning towards a third instalment.

To recap, the show follows the fictional heir to the throne Prince Wilhelm (Edvin Ryding) and his romance with fellow pupil Simon (Omar Rudberg) at their school Hillerska, and the chaos that results from it.

So, will there be a third instalment to finish the story? Here's everything we know so far about a possible Young Royals season 3 on Netflix.

Will there be Young Royals season 3?

Netflix is yet to announce whether Young Royals has been renewed for season 3 or cancelled, but we can expect to hear a verdict in the coming weeks.

As we have seen, the streaming service closely monitors viewership of its original shows over the first month, with total minutes logged and completion rates being key factors in whether a show gets picked up.

As such, if you're a big Young Royals fan and are keen to see more, the best thing you can do is help spread the word that new episodes are out.

If Young Royals were to be renewed for a third season, we could realistically expect it to drop in autumn 2023, with the gap between the first two being just over a year.

Who could be in the cast of a potential Young Royals season 3?

If Young Royals were to be renewed for season 3, it would make sense for series leads Edvin Ryding and Omar Rudberg to return as star-crossed lovers Prince Wilhelm and Simon Eriksson.

We could also see more from their shared rival August of Årnäs (played by Malte Gårdinger), second cousin to Prince Wilhelm and prominent figure at Hillerska.

Rounding out the Young Royals cast are Frida Argento as Simon's sister Sara, and Nikita Uggla as fellow student Felice, while prolific Swedish actor Pernilla August (The Phantom Menace) plays Queen Kristina.

It's open to speculation exactly where the story of Young Royals could go next if the series returns, but the show will have to pick up from the dramatic events of the season 2 finale.

The focus is likely to remain squarely on Prince Wilhelm and Simon, as viewers have become so heavily invested in their romance over the episodes we've seen so far.

The first season asked Wilhelm to make a choice between love and duty, with that theme likely to continue running through any future storylines as the young heir is faced with the realities of being a public figure.

Is there a Young Royals season 3 trailer?
