Will there be a Ragnarok Season 4 on Netflix?

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.

Ragnarok has always been an odd show for Netflix, a Norwegian YA drama about Norse Gods and monsters that has always seemed hesitant to indulge in its more fantastical elements.

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 endingAny 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 TomatoesRagnarok 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.

    I was a huge fan of the show and it’s sad to see it end after only three seasons. I waited two years for season three. I’m so disappointed. Netflix dropped the ball on not extended this series.

    I love the show..we need another season please ????????

    Definitely vote for at least 3 more seasons of the series”Ragnarok” PLEASE!!! Absolutely love this series! Not only should it be renewed but it should have 16 to 22 episodes each season!
    WE THE FANS LOVE THIS SERIES! It’s about time Netflix started paying more attention to US that enjoy these types of programs.

    i loved all 3 seasons. i want a season 4. season 1 was great. season 2 dipped a little, but season 3 definitely recovered. they integrated a fair amount of actual norse mythology into the show. in the myths, he did have a relationship with a giant, represented by saxa in the show. i took the ending episode of “if you had gone through with it, this is how it would have ended” with the confusing part of being set in “muspelheim” not midgard. a vision of what could have happened, but now wont, or at least delayed.

    I loved the show, I totally disagree that it was woeful in any way. Everyone in my home love it, including the dog. My wonder is whether people have watched the dubbed version because they can’t deal with subtitles.

    Come on Netflix your canceling way to many good shows. We would enjoy atleast 2 more seasons. Give what the viewers want to see not all these shows your keeping. Your doing away with so many shows.

  • August 29, 2023 at 9:02 pm

    Just binged the 3 seasons up to the end. Loved it! Please give us about 2 more seasons.

  • August 30, 2023 at 7:49 pm

    I’m a 71 year old fan of this series. Please bring on season 4. I loved your series.

  • August 30, 2023 at 8:28 pm

    I loved it! Whoever reviews or make decisions for shows doesn’t listen to the audience! Bring Ragnarok back!

  • August 31, 2023 at 3:52 pm

    The series is awesome. Really looking at least two more seasons…
    I really don’t want this beautiful series to end like this

  • September 5, 2023 at 3:12 am

    I loved it????????

  • September 7, 2023 at 3:02 am

    I like the series even though it ended the way it did. I would love a season 4 and more.

  • September 13, 2023 at 8:00 pm

    We want Season 4 of ragnarok please!!!

  • September 18, 2023 at 10:17 pm

    This may sound like semantics but the show hasn’t been cancelled, it’s been *finished*

    The story is complete.

    Whether the ending was satisfying or not, the show is wrapped up and stayed tight and discussed. I feel that any more episodes or series would have dragged it out too much.

  • September 20, 2023 at 2:14 am

    I’m just not gonna bother with the third season, it needs to be wrapped up better than that.

  • September 20, 2023 at 9:30 pm

    This was a phenomenally good series. Bad decision to cancel. The “perplexing character arc” is actually perfect. It faces the truth of how we deal with the paradox of morality. How in trying to get it right we often fail and sometimes go to the dark side. Another famous character arc like this was Anachin Skywalker. It’s great. So well written and in keeping with an audience that knows mythology and likes to think.

  • September 20, 2023 at 9:38 pm

    There should be a season 4 that sees the group coming back together after lessons learned. Bring back Ragnarok! ????????????

  • September 21, 2023 at 12:07 pm

    The author really doesn’t get mythology and how it is a metaphor for the human condition, and why this links in so perfectly with the show. Ragnarok was brilliant. Magic realism at its finest. A perfectly told story, with a very strong message about humanity, and a great show. I admire the writer Adam Price so very much. Nailed it!

    The Series Finale seems to contain flashes of the epic Norse God vs Giant battle that, in the show, never occurs because of the “new way” of peace achieved between the Giants and the Gods. The show appears to end with an end to this seemingly infinite war that has spanned millennia between God’s and Giants.

    However, the war could still occur in a 4th season. The end of season 3 is open enough that the story could easily continue. There is definitely plenty of untapped Norse mythology that could be used in additional seasons or a Netflix movie.

    The show is popular enough and interesting enough for another season. Personally, I think the actor playing Floki is so good that he alone could carry the show another season. Hope to see more!
