This article discusses the possibility of Ragnarok Season 4 and the renewed or canceled status of the Norwegian Netflix series. It may contain spoilers for all three previous seasons.
Season 2 was an improvement on the first, but similarly flawed, burdened by some perplexing character decisions and a non-ending that fans hoped would be rectified in this, the third and presumably final outing.
Here’s a quote from our review:
This, then, is one of those very frustratingly written stories that hinge on established characters making woeful decisions. Magne’s behavior changes radically. He becomes ensorcelled by Saxa, one of the Jutuls, who manipulates him into sowing discord among his allies. The arc is predictable and contrived.
The third season was utterly unable to stick the landing, with a worse season overall than the previous two and a brutally ridiculous and unsatisfying ending. Any fans curious about the show’s potential future will likely be looking into it in disbelief, refusing to accept that the climax of the story that has unfurled across three seasons could possibly be that.
For the benefit of those poor people, here’s everything we know about it.
Will there be a Ragnarok Season 4 on Netflix?
Renewed or canceled status: Cancelled
At the time of writing Netflix have not renewed Ragnarok for Season 4. There’s no need for any suspense, though, as it was widely understood and marketed that the third season of Ragnarok would be the last. The story, for all intents and purposes, is over, and there’s no need to continue it. It is canceled.
One supposes it’s a great irony that a Netflix original series, which are notorious for never ending conclusively, provided a climax that was so indescribably bad that a renewal-baiting non-ending would have actually been preferred.
Netflix usually base their renewals on metrics such as how many viewers watch the first episode, how many watch the whole thing, and how well-received the show among critics and audiences on aggregate sites like Rotten Tomatoes. Ragnarok did okay with critics and better with audiences, but it’s seemingly all for naught.
While we’ll obviously update this page with any new information as and when we get it, our official prediction, and we’re likely to be right, is that Ragnarok will not be renewed for Season 4. It’s probably better to start accepting that finale as the end sooner rather than later.
