If you are a horror geek and have finished watching Contracted and Contracted II, it makes sense that you are now awaiting more news about the release of Phase 3 of the movie. Well, you aren’t the only one with similar anticipation.
Following the massive success of the first two installments of this movie franchise, the fans are curious to see how the creators progress with the plot. Will it unleash a new wave of terror and horror? Well, no one knows at this point.
We will take a look at all the details that we have so far about Contracted Phase 3, its release date, and also what you can expect from the show in the future.
When is Contracted Phase 3 Releasing?
The first Contracted was released in 2013 and with the kind of response the movie received, the creators released the sequel of the movie, Contracted II, in 2015.
Since then, the fans have been patiently waiting for more news about Contracted Phase 3 and wondering if it would happen or not. To be fair, there’s no way for us to know if the movie is returning with a new story just yet.
However, with how successful the first two seasons were, the creators would be foolish not to make a third part of the movie. The sequel did indeed conclude giving all the characters the closure they needed and it has been around 8 years since then, so the possibilities of the movie returning with Phase 3 seem close to none.
What can we expect from Contracted Phase 3?
If you have yet to watch Contracted’s first two installments, we’d recommend you do that first while you wait for Phase 3.
To give you a bit of background, let us take a look at the premise of the movie first.
The film follows the story of Riley (Matt Mercer), who is infected with a mysterious sexually transmitted disease that turns its victims into grotesque zombies. As Riley races against time to find a cure, he must also confront the horrifying consequences of his infection.
Contracted Phase 3 is expected to continue the dark and gritty tone of its predecessors, delving deeper into the horrors of the zombie apocalypse. The film is also expected to explore the psychological and emotional toll that the infection takes on its victims.
Who is returning on Contracted Phase 3?
If the directors decide to bring back Contracted with the third installment, chances are that the main cast will make a comeback with a few additions.
This would include:
- Matt Mercer as Riley
- Marianna Palka as Samantha
- Morgan Peter Brown as BJ
- Melanie Papalia as Nikki
- Kevin Bresnahan as Laird
- Jake Choi as Chang
Contracted Phase 3 has a lot of potential and there are multiple storylines that the writers can work with. However, with the prolonged silence surrounding the movie’s return, it seems like the chances of a return are quite low at this point. We’d have to see how things transpire in the future.
