Amazon’s ‘Homecoming’ is set around a rehabilitation program for the soldiers who suffer from PTSD and other traumas of war. It promises to fix them so that they can return to civilian life with ease. However, after some time, it comes to light that they had been experimenting on the soldiers to make them fit for redeployment. The first season focuses on the story of a therapist Heidi and her client, Walter. The second season expands the story to encompass the power struggle in the Geist corporation. What will ‘Homecoming’ Season 3 entail? Let’s find out.
Homecoming Season 3 Release Date
Homecoming Season 2 released on Amazon Prime on May 22, 2020. The season has seven episodes, as opposed to the ten episodes of the first season.
As of now, there have been no official announcements by the streaming service regarding the future of the series. For the first two seasons, Amazon had given a collective order. However, the intent is not so definitive about the third one. Even if the season does receive a green light, we will have to wait a while before its release. The time difference between the first two seasons was two years. Moreover, the current situation of the world makes it challenging to pick up production readily. Considering everything, we expect ‘Homecoming’ Season 3 to release sometime in 2023.
Homecoming Season 3 Cast: Who’s in it?
‘Homecoming’ Season 1 stars Julia Roberts in the role of Heidi Bergman. The story takes a turn in Season 2, where Janelle Monae’s Alex, aka Jackie, comes into focus. Stephan James appears in both seasons as Walter Cruz, with Hong Chau playing Audrey Temple. Additional cast includes Bobby Cannavale as Colin Belfast, Shea Whigham as Thomas Carrasco, Alex Karpovsky as Craig, and Chris Cooper as Leonard Geist.
Both seasons end on a bittersweet note for all the characters, so the cast of Season 3 depends entirely on its plot. James’ return as Walter is much more likely, considering that his character moves on to uncover his past. If he meets with Heidi, then Julia Roberts would return to reprise her role. If Geist Enterprises still remains in the picture, Chris Cooper could return as its owner, and Cannavale’s Colin, also, might come back. Like the second season, we also expect new actors to join the cast of Season 3.
Homecoming Season 3 Plot: What can it be about?
The ending of Season 2 leaves all the characters with an uncertain future. There are several questions about where they can go from here.
For its third season, ‘Homecoming’ could entirely focus on Walter. He had been a victim in Season 1; in Season 2, he exacted vengeance. But what now? He still doesn’t remember a lot about the war, his friends, and Heidi. In the next installment of the show, we could find him on the path of revelations, and who knows what other secrets might come to light?
Another person to play an extended role could be Leonard Geist. He saved his company, and he stopped the nefarious plans of Bunda. It was bold what he and Walter did, but every action has its consequence. Leonard can’t simply slip back into the role of making soaps and detergents. The hierarchy extends much further than Bunda, and for the next season, we could see the government taking a more formidable role against them.
