An updated version of the original American game show from 2001 called “The Weakest Link” is now airing on American television. The revival’s NBC premiere was on September 29, 2020. Since then, both critical reception and the show’s continued success over multiple seasons indicate that viewers enjoy the reboot just as much as the original. With two seasons in the can and viewer interest at an all-time high, however, the question now becomes whether or not the recently premiered series can continue for additional installments.
If you’re one of them, you’ve come to the correct spot for details on the game show’s fourth season order. So that you can be well-informed when the new season becomes available for streaming, we have compiled a brief synopsis of the season’s plot, characters, and premiere date. Read on to find out what happened in Season 3 of Weakest Link.
Weakest Link Season 3 Release Date
In a word, yes. Based on the popular British game show, NBC has renewed the American adaptation of “The Weakest Link” for a third season, and will once again feature Jane Lynch as host. Weakest Link Season 3 likely won’t premiere on streaming services in 2022, as of August 2. A premiere for the series is planned for sometime in the first half of 2023. If we were to speculate, we’d say that the premiere of season three may be anywhere between January and June of 202. We want to stress that this is just our best guess for the month; NBC will announce the official release date once this month comes to a close.
Weakest Link Season 3 Renewed
NBC claims that the show has so far attracted over 17 million viewers across linear and digital platforms this season, and that its current summer run has increased ratings for NBC’s Monday 10 pm timeslot by double digits in all key demographics, including an increase of 30% in the 18-49 demo and an increase of 26% in total viewers.
In addition, Valerie Bruce, General Manager, BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions, said, “This represents an exciting new chapter for us and for the millions of fans around the world who have rallied behind Weakest Link over the years: a fresh opportunity to take the series to new heights this season by collaborating with the one and only Jane Lynch whose razor-sharp wit is the perfect match for the fastest and fiercest game show on television.” With great excitement, we announce that our collaboration with NBC on the smash popular series that puts your wits and reflexes to the test will continue.
Weakest Link Season 3 Plot And Episodes
Season 3 of Weakest Link is a collaboration between BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions and Universal Television’s Alternative Studio. In the fall, production will begin. Former NBC EP Stuart Krasnow serves as showrunner and executive produces the new season with BBC Studios’ Ryan O’Dowd, Lynch, and Aaron Solomon. Like the first two seasons, the new one is expected to stick to a simple premise.
Eight strangers enter the studio for each episode of the NBC show, but they soon learn that they must work together if they want a shot at the maximum prize money at stake. Players take turns answering general knowledge questions in an effort to form chains of consecutive accurate responses. At the very least 20 episodes should be produced for the upcoming season, with each episode clocking in at an average of 60 minutes (primetime) and 30 minutes (syndication). Please note that as of August 2, 2022, the network has not yet revealed the specific episode titles or plot details for the following season, and that this process could take some time.
Fans should be patient for the time being and catch up on the freshly released Season 2 to re-immerse themselves in this environment before streaming the third season. Each successive correct response adds significantly to the value of the chain, while each bad answer breaks the chain and resets the player at the bottom of the money ladder. Each round concludes with contestants voting to eliminate the person they believe to be the “Weakest Link” in the group. Whenever a participant earns a majority of the votes, Jane says the now-iconic phrase, “You are the Weakest Link,” and that person is eliminated from the competition. Goodbye.”

As the show has just been renewed for a third season on the network, the answer is no. Therefore, it is far too soon to expect a teaser or promotional material for Season 3. For now, though, here’s a clip from the show’s official Twitter account that provides some insight into the show’s structure: “So…which contender brought their F-game? #WeakestLink”
