The second season of The Owl House, a hit animated show from Disney, ended on May 28, 2022. The show came back after a long break in the summer of 2021. Fans all over the world started thinking about what the future holds for this important and relevant show almost as soon as the credits rolled.
Well, there’s good news and bad news about season 3 of The Owl House. On the one hand, the release date and time have just been set. On the other hand, it will be the last episode of the series, and it won’t be a full season. Here’s everything you need to know about what went wrong with The Owl House season 3, why the show was canceled, and, most importantly, when it will now air on Disney.
The Owl House Season 3 Release Date and Time are Confirmed, but There’s a Catch
Officially, the first episode of season 3 of The Owl House will air on Disney Channel and Disney XD on Saturday, October 15 at 9 PM ET/PT. For fans outside the US, that’s 2 AM BST, 3 AM CEST, and 9 AM PHT on Sunday, October 16.
“Thanks to Them,” a 44-minute special, will pick up right where “The Owl House Season 2 Finale” left off, with Luz and her friends stuck in the human realm and ready to do whatever it takes to get back to the demon realm and save the Boiling Isles from Emperor Belos and the Collector. This is according to an exclusive report by TV Guide.
The Disney Channel YouTube page has now posted two short clips from the episode, which you can see below. The fact that the character’s hair is a little longer than when we last saw them at the end of season 2 hints that there will be a time jump in the next episode. The release dates for episodes 2 and 3 of season 3 of The Owl House have not been announced yet, but both are set to air in 2023. You can find out more here. Disney put in an order for season 3 of The Owl House in May 2021, before the second season even came out.
The bad news is that season 3 of The Owl House will be the last. The show was canceled by Disney, so it won’t have 19–21 episodes as normal seasons do. Instead, it will be “made up of three 44-minute specials.”
When a fan asked on Twitter if season 3 would be the last, the show’s creator, Dana Terrace, said in a tweet that has since been deleted, “Unfortunately, yes. But we’re looking forward to what we have in store.”Fans of The Owl House are now in the awkward position of being happy about the new specials but very upset that this is the last adventure. Why was The Owl House canceled?
Why Was Season 3 of the Owl House Cut Shorter and the Show Cancelled?
Terrace would explain in more detail on a Reddit Ask Me Anything why she thought Disney had canceled The Owl House. The first thing to do was find out if the show was canceled because of LGBTQ+ characters.
Terrace said, “Even though we’ve had trouble airing in a few countries and have been banned outright in a few more, I’m not going to assume bad faith on the part of the people I work with in Los Angeles.”Budget and production related to the pandemic were also not the reasons why the show was canceled, and Terrace said she “wasn’t even allowed to make my case.”The show’s creator would then say that at the time this decision was made, both the budget and the ratings were good enough to justify a full-length third season…So what was really going on? Terrace says that branding.

Can You Help the Owl House in Any Way?
The best thing for fans to do, as Terrace said in a now-deleted tweet, is to tell Disney directly that they want more episodes of The Owl House season 3.
Fans, on the other hand, have taken matters into their own hands and started many petitions asking Disney to keep making The Owl House. At the time this article was written, the most popular petition had more than 168,000 signatures and was only a few people away from its goal of 200,000.
The petition says that Disney “doesn’t seem to read DMs and emails, probably because 1) they get so many and 2) most people who write letters are over 18 and can work and spend money (like on cable subscriptions or merchandise).” After that, they stress how important it is to send real letters by “snail mail.”
