The cast of Young Royals is back on set to begin filming the third and final season of the show.
Netflix confirmed the news with a cute video featuring multiple cast members, though notably not Omar Rudberg, the actor who brings to life one half of the show’s main duo. Fans are already speculating this indicates as separation for the two at the beginning of the season, but we’ll have to wait and see!
Netflix also posted some adorable pictures of the cast, confirming that for Young Royals, the third time really is the charm!
The main cast are all confirmed to return for the final season, including Edvin Ryding as Prince Wilhelm, Rudberg as Simon, Malte Gårdinger as August, Frida Argento as Sara, and Nikita Uggla as Felice.
Young Royals is a Swedish teen drama series from Netflix Nordic that centers around the romance between the fictional Prince Wilhelm of Sweden and his boarding school classmate Simon Eriksson. Teenage love is hard enough, but throw in being royalty and things start to get complicated.
The Netflix original series premiered in 2021 and was immediately renewed for a second season after gaining a huge following across the world on social media.
Despite one of the characters being royal, the show is surprisingly relatable for viewers. It has been held up as a brilliantly positive example of LGBTQ+ media done right, with great relationship representation and the subversion of many of the usual unhealthy tropes. Season 2 took an already emotional ending to the first season and delivered a stunning, heart-wrenching slow-burn for everyone’s favorite prince and pauper couple. Hopefully season 3 will continue the legacy of great writing and wonderful acting we’ve seen so far.
Wilhelm and Simon’s love story has been a rollercoaster, and fans are eager to see how the team wrap everything up in the final season. After everything they’ve been through, here’s hoping that these young lovers get the ending they deserve!
We don’t have a release date for season 3 just yet, but the first two seasons are available to stream now on Netflix.
