Created by Australian comedian Josh Thomas, ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Okay’ follows Nicholas, a man in his twenties obliged to spend his peak years taking care of his two half-sisters. He receives shocking news during a trip to Los Angeles, where his father, before his death, reveals that his daughters Genevieve and Matilda need someone to look after them. Torn between grief and an urgent sense of responsibility, Nicholas has to start a new life using whatever semblance of will he has left in him.
The comedy-drama first premiered on January 16, 2020. Upon its release, it garnered critical acclaim and positive response from the audiences, mainly for its heartwarming narrative and the relevant themes it touches upon. The show has spawned two seasons till now, and as far as the next one is concerned, here’s everything we know about ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Okay’ Season 3!
Everything’s Gonna Be Okay Season 3 Release Date
‘Everything’s Gonna Be Okay’ season 2 premiered on April 8, 2021, on Freeform and concluded on June 3, 2021. The season has ten episodes in total, and every episode is around 20–45 minutes long. Season 2 focuses more upon romantic relationships, grief, and mental health. It projects serious issues in a way that is palatable and not too bleak.
With regards to the next season, here’s everything we have surmised. As of now, its home network, Freeform, has not released any update about the future of the show. Season 2 was renewed in May 2020, just two months after the conclusion of the inaugural season. Therefore, we might soon hear news about its renewal or cancellation. Before the filming of season 2 commenced, creator and lead actor Josh Thomas revealed that he has always been vague about time in the shows he has written. He prefers not to disclose the timeline in the narrative so that there is always more content to create.
Hence, viewers never know the time duration of a particular storyline revolving around its primary characters. This allows more creative freedom to the creators and also gives them the chance to keep expanding a particular narrative over multiple seasons. Moreover, Josh stated that he wants to see Matilda go to college, which is why he is open to exploring this storyline in the next edition. If the show does get greenlit for the third season, we can expect ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Okay’ season 3 to release sometime in 2022.

Everything’s Gonna Be Okay Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
In season 2, Nicholas navigates through the ups and downs of his new life, with the extra burden of dealing with a troublesome pandemic that requires people to stay indoors. The arrival of the coronavirus essentially interfered with the actual plans the creators had for season 2. But they still curated beautiful stories about characters being locked inside the home and their subsequent interactions with each other.
In the potential third season, the spotlight will most likely shift on Matilda, who might try to attend Juilliard again. However, as the pandemic put a hold on her plans, the following season might compensate for all her missed opportunities. In addition, Nicholas and Alex might experience a strain in their relationship, causing them to rethink their future together.
