Netflix’s “Marco Polo” recently dropped major hints for a season 3 renewal amid endless speculations of the show’s cancellation. Fans of the grand historical drama are now given high hopes to watch their favorite series the soonest time possible.

“Marco Polo” Season 3 2018 Air Date Possible

Previously, it was reported that the show’s network might not give “Marco Polo” a green light for a third installment due to its expensive maintenance cost from production to professional fees of its cast. It is presumed to be one of the most costly shows of the giant streaming company and that the firm has been having a hard time keeping up with the needs and demands of the famous soap.

However, a source recently stated that Netflix and The Weinstein Company were able to release the first and second seasons of the series despite the lengthy and expensive production and also debunked the alleged financial constraints claimed to hinder the pursuit of the show’s new season.

The fact is “Marco Polo” is not included in the lineup of Netflix’s 2017 major projects. The big roster includes "Stranger Things," "Iron Fist," The Punisher," and "The Defenders."

Rumors have it that Netflix will announce the official air date of “Marco Polo” season 3 in 2017 soon as the filming is already in the works, hence a 2018 release should be expected.

New Season Will Highlight Hundred Eyes & His Skills

Should the highly anticipated season 3 of John Fusco’s penned series come to fruition, Tom Wu’s Hundred Eyes’ role will take the center stage. It cannot be denied that Hundred Eyes is one of the most stunning characters in "Marco Polo". The blind monk who trained Marco Polo was critically acclaimed with a 30-minute special last year that featured his origins.

2018 seems too far but the long wait will make everyone patient given that “Marco Polo” season 3 will push through.
