Manhunt Season 3

Was Manhunt cancelled or renewed for season 3? When does it start on CBS? Now that season 2 is over, fans are wondering if the show will continue for another season or not. In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.

What Is Manhunt About?

Manhunt is an American drama anthology television series created by Andrew Sodroski, Jim Clemente, and Tony Gittelson. Initially commissioned as a television miniseries starring Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany, it depicted a fictionalized account of the FBI’s hunt for the Unabomber and premiered on Discovery Channel on August 1, 2017.

On July 17, 2018, it was reported that Charter Communications was in advanced negotiations with the series’ producers to pick up the series, now considered an anthology series, for two seasons to be aired on their Spectrum cable service. Because COVID-19 has caused a delay for the production of CBSโ€™ regular shows, the network picked up the rights to air season two. Will the additional exposure and revenue help Manhunt be renewed for a third season, with a new true-crime tale or, will it be cancelled?

The first of these potential seasons reportedly would follow Eric Rudolph, who was the perpetrator of the Centennial Olympic Park bombing. On January 18, 2020, it was announced that the second season, titled Manhunt: Deadly Games, would premiere on February 3, 2020.

A true-crime anthology series, the second season of Manhunt, subtitled Deadly Games, stars Cameron Britton, Jack Huston, Gethin Anthony, Carla Gugino, Arliss Howard, Kelly Jenrette, and Judith Light. Season two follows one of the most complex manhunts on American soil following the deadly terrorist attack at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta. Security guard Richard Jewell (Britton) is lauded as a national hero after he discovers a massive bomb at the Games and saves hundreds of lives by clearing the area. However, his public identity as a brave citizen quickly erodes when the FBI and the news media, led by driven crime reporter Kathy Scruggs (Gugino), falsely accuse him of being the bomber. As Jewell and his mother Bobi (Light) fight to clear his name, the real perpetrator, Eric Rudolph (Huston), remains at large and undetected as he carries out a series of bombings.
