Will There be a Black Monday Season 3?

‘Black Monday’ is a dark comedy series that airs on Showtime and follows the employees of a second-tier trading firm in Wall Street. The stylish drama, which boasts a bunch of charismatics actors, makes for an addictive watch. The story starts off by narrating the events that eventually lead to the global stock market crash of 1987 aka Black Monday. Created by Jordan Cahan and David Caspe, the critically acclaimed show has spawned two successful seasons to date. And here is everything we know about its third edition.

Black Monday Season 3 Release Date:

‘Black Monday’ season 2 premiered on March 15, 2020, on Showtime, with two back-to-back episodes. But after airing for six episodes, the season went on a mid-season break on April 12, 2020. It then returned with its 7th episode on June 28, 2020, and finally concluded with the 10th part on July 19, 2020.

A glance at the numbers and season 2 has shown a slight dip in the average viewerships as compared to those of season 1. Although this raises a red flag, we should note that corporate odysseys like ‘Black Monday’ have a limited yet loyal fanbase. Based on fan demand alone, Showtime might decide to renew the series for a third edition, considering there’s scope for the story to continue further. If that happens, we can expect ‘Black Monday’ season 3 to release sometime in early 2021.

Black Monday Season 3 Cast: Who Can be in it?

‘Black Monday’ features a small cast, with most of the events revolving around the limited characters portrayed by the stars. Since all the four actors are crucial for the story to continue, we expect all of them to make comebacks in season 3 as well. We have Don Cheadle as Maurice Monroe — a veteran stockbroker in Wall Street. Andrew Rannells stars as Blair Pfaff — an aspiring stockbroker who gets involved in multiple farcical events. Eventually, Blair ends up working for Maurice.

Blair is a resilient worker who fights to endure workplace issues in order to prove that he can survive in a high-stakes environment. Simultaneously, he also needs to maintain his problematic engagement with the rich yet spoiled heiress, Tiffany Georgina (played by Casey Wilson). On the other hand, Maurice schemes to use Blair to buy Georgina Jeans, Tiffany and her family’s company.

Regina Hall essays the role of Dawn Darcy, the only female employee at the workplace, who strives to impress Maurice. But Dawn slowly starts running out of patience when she notices that Maurice does not recognize her worth. She is also dealing with a failing marriage. Rounding up the lead cast is Paul Scheer as Keith Shankar who draws sadistic pleasure from bullying Blair. Keith is a homosexual who has not come out yet and is having a relationship with a Broadway performer.
