Stay calm, Young Royals fans, it’s finally been confirmed. The hit Netflix show will be back for a Season 3.
Simon and Wilhelm will return to screens for a final season of the Swedish series, which follows the star-crossed lovers teetering on the edge of international scandal should their love affair become public knowledge.
Omar Rudberg and Edvin Ryding star in the hit show, which premiered on the streaming service last year. With a rip-roaring success from the off, a hotly anticipated second series followed last month and left fans begging for more after one almighty cliffhanger of an ending.
Today, on Wednesday, December 14, Netflix has confirmed that Young Royals fans will be getting a new season. “Simon + Wilhelm forever,” the service wrote on Twitter. It added: “Young Royals will return for a third and final season.”
