Raising Kanan Season 3: Release Date Speculation and More

Raising Kanan Season 3

There are series that are practical and deal with pragmatic life problems. There are series that deal with women’s issues and their struggle to balance motherhood and their individuality. 

There are series that have an adventurous thrill that they extend to the audience. Then there are series that show all these things and even manage to gain popularity among fans.

Raising Kanan is one such series.

After the conclusion of its second season, fans have been eagerly waiting for a third season. If the third season is on its way or not is something that the fans are earnestly speculating about. If you consider yourself such an ardent fan of the show then keep reading.

What is the release date of Raising Kanan Season 3?

Raising Kanan is created by Curtis 50 Cents Jackson. It is a spin-off from his Power franchise where the plot takes the audience through a thrilling prequel set in the classic 90s thriller fashion.

Following the wrap of season 2 in around October 2022, fans have been patiently waiting for the season to make a comeback. Provided the writers’ and actors’ strike that is now ongoing in Hollywood, it is not possible when the next season will be released.

There is a silver lining here though. The good news for the fans is that news about a season 3 happening has already been officially confirmed. Work on an upcoming season has even been reported to be complete. 

The only question remaining now is when the next season will be released. Regarding that, the best and the most realistic guess would be the first half of 2024.

What is the probable plot of Raising Kanan Season 3?

Raising Kanan is a series that deals, just as the name suggests, with Kanan Thomas’s upbringing. The plot of the series, therefore, circles the members of Kanan’s home but focuses mainly on his mother. 

Raquel Thomas is one of the most revered drug dealers in town. She is also a woman and therefore cannot let go of her role as a mother. She does not want to let go of it either. 

The story therefore goes on to chronicle her struggle in raising Kanan and also at the same time protecting her territory from a drug lord.

In the next season, viewers can expect the story arc between Raquel and Unique. Initially, enemies, a friendship were seen to be budding between the two towards the end of Season 2 after Unique dramatically saves Raquel. Fans can even expect a romance budding between the two, gradually.

The third season is expected to follow the other story arcs that were in function in the last seasons. A more concrete plot could perhaps be detected after the creators release a trailer.
