Beautiful friendships usually make the best material for sitcoms, and Alexa and Katie is no exception. The show follows Alexa and Katie as they look forward to starting their freshman year in high school. However, disaster strikes when they find out that Alexa has cancer.
The storyline makes Alexa and Katie very entertaining, but also very emotional. The show is as funny as any other sitcom, and it will also make you appreciate the value of friendship. It is a very watchable series, but you might need a box of tissues for the emotional scenes.
Season 3 of Alexa and Katie is set to be released very soon. Keep reading to find out everything about the upcoming release.
When will Alexa and Katie season 3 premiere on Netflix?
Early on in 2019, Netflix announced that we would get Alexa and Katie season 3. The streaming service announced that season 3 would have 16 episodes divided into two parts with 8 episodes each.
Emery Kelly plays the role of Lucas on the show, and he announced via an Instagram post that the first 8 episodes would be released on 30th December 2019. It’s unclear when the final eight episodes will be released, but we will keep you updated when the news comes out.
What happened in season 2?
Apart from all the humor, we got some interesting storylines for our two leads. Season 2 was particularly candid about the financial disparity between Alexa and Katie. We saw Katie work her socks off to get money for her trip to London, and for a while, she was pretty successful.
She was able to maintain straight As while getting the money she needed for her trip. However, a freak accident made her broke again. Rather belatedly, Alexa showed loyalty to her friend by canceling all the fancy things she had planned with her parents.
Alexa and Katie isn’t a black comedy, but it is very bold when it comes to portraying the realities of life. Season 2 highlighted Katie’s financial struggles, and Alexa had to handle her breakup with Dylan while dealing with the effects of her leukemia. Season 2 had plenty of laughs, but it also had moments to make you tear up.
Season 2 also showed us what looks to be the start of a relationship between Ryan and Katie. Ryan has a huge crush on Katie, and in season 2, he expressed his feelings. Luckily for him, it looks like Katie will give him a chance.
What to expect in season 3
We expect the show to continue its focus on Alexa and Katie’s relationship. Season 2’s focus on their different financial situations tested their relationship, but in the end, their love for each other prevailed.
Relationships should also come under sharp focus in season 3. We will see how Katie’s relationship with Ryan progresses. Hopefully, we will also see Lucas and Gwenny’s relationship develop. Season 3 will have 16 episodes, and it means that the show might put more focus on other characters on the show.
Season 2 left us with a feeling that there is more to characters like Hannah and Reagan. The characters were introduced in season 1, and we didn’t see their characters develop in season 2. Season 3 might be the season that we get to see more of Hannah and Reagan.
Characters like Jennifer and Dave have compelling backstories, but minimal character development. For instance, Jennifer decided to go back to school, but her decision was barely talked about. We saw more of Dave in season 2, but there was very little insight into his character. Hopefully, it will all change in season 3.
