The teen comedy series “Pen 15” is coming back with its third season. The show was loved by the critics and the audience for the early-2000s pop-cultural references, the chemistry between the leads, and the central premise that smartly derives humour from social awkwardness that persists in the life of middle schoolers. After receiving all the good reviews and responses from the audience the show is making a comeback.
We are here with everything you need to know about the third season of this cringe comedy. So without taking any more time let’s take a dive in and have a look at everything we have gathered up for you.
Pen15 Season 3: When is the release happening?
The show made its debut in February 2019 and opened to universal acclaim. Following the success, the show returned with its second season on Hulu which premiered on 18th September 2020. It consisted of seven episodes with a runtime of 27-29 minutes each.
On 1st May 2019, the streaming network announced the Emmy Award-winning show’s renewal for a 14-episode second season. The creators revealed that the season would be split into two equal parts. Since seven episodes dropped in September 2020, the second batch is slated for a release in early 2021.
We can be hopeful for its release as TV shows and movies are slowly and safely resuming production after corona virus restrictions, we can be hopeful that the makers will start the filming soon.

Pen15 Season 3: What will be the plotline?
In the second season, we saw Maya and Anna dealing with the aftermath of the Season 1 finale, wherein Brandth confesses that he has a secret crush on Maya. Sam dumps Jenna and reveals to Maya that he is actually her secret AIM boyfriend. The best friends find themselves in various circumstances that test their friendship throughout the season, but the experiences only make their bond stronger.
In the third season, we can expect the middle-schoolers to continue embarking upon silly and zany adventures. The new season might throw more light on R-rated subjects with Maya and Anna exploring their sexuality further.
