Netflix has almost instantly renewed Summertime, an Italian TV series. Season 2 was dropped in June 2021. Netflix is expected to release season 3 in the very near future.
Summertime is a young adult romance drama that’s produced in Italy. Based on Federico Moccia's novel Three Meters Above the Sky, the series is itself based. So far, 16 episodes have been made available. Season 1 was released in April 2020. The second season dropped in June 2021.
It appears that season 3 may be on its way. Multiple outlets from Italy are all reporting that the show has been renewed although there’s nothing official via Netflix’s Italian social channels to confirm.
According to some reports, the news was received at an Italian press conference before season 2's premiere.
With the renewal, it’ll put Summertime on track to match Suburra: Blood on Rome and Baby which both have had three seasons each although in each case, they’ve wrapped up.
We’re still waiting on renewal or cancelation confirmations for Luna Nera, Curon, and the recently released Zero and Generation 56K.
It is no surprise that Summertime did well in Italy. It has been in the top 10s for 52 consecutive days since its introduction. Even yesterday (July 1st) the show still featured so that’s expected to extend.
It hasn’t broken out of Italy too much beyond neighboring countries. It’s performed well in France where it’s featured for 22 days and Spain for 29 days.
Although the show is popular, it currently has a rating of 5.5 on IMDb. However, recent reviews seem to have been more favorable than negative.
As to what we can expect from the third season, we’ll probably just have to wait and see. Some speculation from Italian outlets suspects we’ll see Sofia move away and enroll in a class for her newly found passion for photography. We’ve also got the big accident involving Lola at the end of season 3 and we’ll likely get to find out the outcomes of that soon.
That’s all we have for now, we’ll keep you posted as and when we hear more.
