The Cuphead Show! Season 3 Expected as Part of 36-Episode Pack

**Warning – Spoilers ahead for The Cuphead Show!**

Cuphead and Mugman have returned to Netflix for round two of their upbeat misadventures with a host of colorful characters and adversaries, but fans of the show are now looking ahead to the possibility of Season 3. 

Since before Season 1 aired, the team behind the franchise had a roadmap planned out and we take a look at the animation’s future on Netflix.

Developed by Dave Wasson for Netflix and based on the 2017 video game franchise Cuphead by Studio MDHR, The Cuphead Show! First premiered in February 2022 following the dangerous endeavors of Cuphead and his brother Mugman voiced by Tru Valentino and Frank Todaro.

The Cuphead Show! Season 3 Possibilities

Luckily, The Cuphead Show!’s continuation on Netflix has already been mapped out, even though the streaming platform has yet to officially confirm Season 3.

One indicator that Season 3 is on the horizon is the cliffhanger that loomed at the end of Season 2 Episode 13, titled The Devil’s Pitchfork (Part 1), where the Devil took Mugman down to hell.

Considering the episode’s title consisted of “Part 1”, it’s only natural to assume Season 3 is on the way with Part 2.

Cuphead Creators Confirm 36-Episode Pack

During an in-depth interview with Animation Magazine, Cuphead creators Chad and Jared Moldenhauer discussed the longevity of The Cuphead Show! alongside how certain narratives were split into parts:

” Some of the initial 36 episodes, which will premiere over three separate drops, are presented as two- and even three-parters.”

This quote all but confirms that The Cuphead Show! will be back for a third “drop” to deliver the final 11 episodes, as Season 1 consisted of 12 installments and Season 2 had 13.

Moldenhauer’s quote of “initial” episodes also suggests that more could be on the way even after Season 3.
