It seems that after two successful seasons, ‘Final Space’ will be returning for a third season. Prior to the series sophomore finale that aired last night on Adult Swim, series creator Olan Rogers teased fans with a cryptic tweet, teasing “GOOD N3WS” would be coming soon, an apparent confirmation the Conan O’Brien-produced show isn’t sailing off into the sunset just quite yet. Rogers, showrunner and voice of the main character, revealed way back in June that he likely had up to about six seasons of content ready to go and already had the bulk of Season Three already mapped out.
Rogers told ComicBook.com, “Like it’s a solid six seasons of ideas. I know we have pretty much a solid Season Three thought out but whatever happens with that, I don’t know. Hopefully, it manifests but I think it’s really kind of around that sixth season mark where it’s like this would be a good ending spot, but if we want to stretch it, we could.”
‘Final Space’ originally ran its first season of 10 episodes on TBS before the series moved to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim for Season 2 hoping to boost ratings. The show was able to find solid footing, however, none of the episodes in Season Two have attained the 1.2 million viewers “Chapter One” and “Chapter Two” had. Throughout this season, the show averaged 572,000 live viewers per episode. It’s still a far cry from that 2.2+ million Rick and Morty averaged per episode in its third season, though it is up to par with other sister shows on Adult Swim like ‘Tender Touches’ and ‘The Jellies!’ which averaged 729,000 per episode and 540,000 per episode, respectively.
Final Space features a sprawling voice cast including Rogers, Fred Armisen, Tom Kenny, David Tennant, Steven Yeun, Tika Sumpter, Caleb McLaughlin, Coty Galloway, Ron Perlman, John DiMaggio, Shannon Purser, Keith David, and Jane Lynch.
Although the Season 2 finale premiered on September 23rd on Adult Swim, it will air again on TBS on September 30th.
