In the Dark Season 3: Release Date, Cast, Plot Everything You Need to Know!

The CW’s In the Dark has been a huge hit, and it appears as though this strange show will continue to provide — at least for the foreseeable future. Murphy Mason (Perry Mattfeld), a blind, misanthropic, hard-drinking protagonist, has been a popular character, and her numerous flings, shady deals, and murder-solving escapades have intrigued the audience enough for the CW to continue the show for seasons three and four. After getting to know the characters and the show’s voice, we’re anticipating what the program has in store.

However, what is in store for the show? Two main antagonists have been eliminated from the picture: murderous officer Dean Riley (Rich Sommer) and laundromat drug kingpin Nia Bailey (Nicki Micheaux). However, Murphy and her crew are embroiled in a variety of crimes, and the show has introduced an alarming number of people that may cause them issues, and in a far more personal way than ever before. While we wait for the new episodes to air, here’s all we know so far about In the Dark season 3’s release date, actors, and plot.

What is the release date for the third season of In the Dark?

The CW did not leave In the Dark viewers in the dark when it came to announcing the show’s third season, and the fourth season renewal followed quickly – even before season 3 began. According to Deadline, the show was one of the network’s early renewals in January 2020, and it looks like CW president Mark Pedowitz views In the Dark as a critical piece of the puzzle.

“These early renewals allow our production teams a head start on creating narrative arcs and hiring staff for next season, while also providing us with a strong foundation of proven, fan-favorite CW shows to build on,” he commented upon renewal.

While the exact release date is still up in the air, it’s worth noting that In the Dark’s first season premiered in April 2019, and its second season in April 2020. With that in mind, the third season may likely premiere in April 2021. Of course, with the realities of television production remaining mostly unknown for the foreseeable future, we’ll simply have to wait for an announcement.

Who is cast in the third season of In the Dark?

Except for the two key characters who perished in season 2, bent cop Dean Riley and criminal leader Nia Bailey, it’s reasonable to assume that the majority of the actors will reprise their roles for In the Dark season 3. Perry Mattfeld will undoubtedly reprise his role as Murphy, while Brook Markham is expected to reprise her role as Guiding Hope vet and Murphy’s roommate, Jess Damon. Additionally, we’re quite likely to see Felix Bell (Morgan Krantz), Max Parish (Casey Deidrick), and gang leader Darnell James return (Keston John).

While Murphy’s adoptive parents, Hank (Derek Webster) and Joy (Kathleen York), were not as visible as they were in season 2, they are likely to make an appearance now and then. Indeed, virtually every recurring character who is still alive and well is a possibility for season 3. Gene Clemens (Matt Murray), Dean’s old partner, is particularly interesting because he discovered numerous vital details throughout season 2.

Josh Wallace (Theodore Bhat), the IRS officer who becomes entangled in Murphy’s hijinks and discovers in the season 2 finale that she and her companions are not exactly squeaky clean, will almost certainly return.

Pretzel, Murphy’s seeing-eye dog, is also returning. Indeed, Mattfeld has expressed to Collider her excitement at the prospect of seeing him again: “I’ve requested multiple times that Pretzel join me for lunch in my trailer so that we might share a 20-minute snooze. At this point, it’s an obsession. When I’m not with him, I do miss him a great deal. I’ll reclaim him as a result of Season 3.”

What is the plot of Season 3 of In the Dark?

With Dean and Nia dead and Josiah (Maurice Compte) presumably out of the picture, In the Dark’s third season has a clear path ahead of it. Murphy and the group, on the other hand, will encounter numerous speedbumps along the route. Gene and Josh each have varying degrees of information regarding the strange occurrences surrounding Murphy.

Jess and Felix have both committed some rather bizarre acts that are out of character for people who purport to work with seeing-eye dogs for a livelihood. And then there’s Murphy herself, whose illicit actions and reckless attitude make it appear as though she’s on the verge of a full-fledged Breaking Bad-style fall from grace.

Of course, before that (if it occurs), she’ll almost certainly have to deal with Darnell, who may be her buddy but was also Nia’s brother. He’s now in a strong position to succeed his sister, and he’ll almost certainly have something to say about her unfortunate demise at Jess’s hands. Whatever happens, it’s safe to say that viewers are in for a wild ride when In the Dark season 3 premieres.
