However, problems immediately emerged, as the coronavirus crisis meant that the recording of Season 2 had to be postponed several times. Ultimately, HBO resolved this by releasing two specials in late 2020 and early 2021. This was followed by a second season in early 2022.
Now the recording of the third season also seems to be more difficult than expected. Initially, a 2023 release date was targeted, but this soon became unfeasible. Meanwhile, it has become clear that even 2024 will not work. “Ideally, we can release Season 3 in 2025,” HBO’s head of drama Francesca Orsi said in a conversation with deadline,

Rumors about this have not yet been officially confirmed.
