This article discusses whether there will be a Season 3 of the Hulu series This Fool and its renewed or canceled status.
This Fool is a half-hour comedy that has returned for a second season on Hulu. The series was co-created by Chris Estrada, who based the series on his own life. Estrada also stars in the lead role of Julio Lopez, who is trying to help his community by working for the Hugs Not Thugs rehabilitation program in Los Angeles.
Throughout Season 2, we followed Julio, Luis, and Minister Payne trying to open a brand-new coffee shop to get their feet on the ground. Of course, they experience a variety of obstacles, including the internal struggle of trying to start a business as friends. The trio continued butting heads on many different aspects of the shop’s foundation, causing friction.
While Chris Estrada, Frank Quinones, and Michael Imperioli thrive in their respective roles, the writing leaves you wanting a little more from the story. In the first season, it felt like you could relate to many aspects of what was happening to our characters. However, in Season 2, they tried to balance too many stories while also taking themselves too seriously, taking away from the funnier moments. Will the trio be able to get back on their feet for a third season? We share everything we know about This Fool and whether or not it has been renewed.
Will there be a Season 3 of This Fool on Hulu?
Renewed or canceled status: TBC
At the time of writing, Hulu has not renewed This Fool for a third season.
The critical and audience reaction mixed in with the watched minutes will be vital in whether or not we will get a Season 3. If the series is received as well or as close to Season 1, with it sitting at 100% with critics and 90% with audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, a quick renewal might be on the cards.
One big thing that is on the side of us possibly seeing a third season of This Fool is the current writers and actors strike. With the strike happening, we could see some shows get canceled and some shows get renewed, but typically (depending on how long the strike lasts), shows with built-in audiences that don’t cost as much for studios are the ones you expect to get brought back to life.
Where could the show go if we get a season three? With Minister Payne off to New York to visit his son, Luis heading to Cambodia, and Julio running the shop, we could easily pick up from the aftermath of all of those events. The show is based on life-like events, so they could explore the coffee shop struggling to stay afloat, or Ruby could agree to have kids leading to Luis adapting to becoming a father. The possibilities are endless when it comes to the show.
Our official prediction is that This Fool will be renewed for Season 3, and we’ll keep this page up to date with the latest information as and when we get it.
