Is ‘Dark Winds’ Season 3 Happening?

The future of Dark Winds remains unclear. The team or the streaming platform didn’t officially confirm the happening of the third season. Still, the possibility of another season seems likely.

However, the executive producer Chris Eyre is optimistic about the future of the show. The team is looking forward to seeing what will happen to the characters now. 

Eyre said, “I don’t feel like we’ve hit our stride with this series. There are 18 [Leaphorn & Chee] books by Tony Hillerman and there are five by Anne Hillerman, so there’s enough detective/Navajo police drama [for inspiration]… Somebody at my gym mentioned this to me, that ‘I just want to see what happens to the characters now.’

It feels like we’ve gotten the show on its feet. And now that it’s on its feet I want to know what happens to the characters, too. I think that their evolution could be a long time coming — and a great journey.”

The team of Dark Winds is definitely looking forward to another season but in the end, AMC will make a decision. We could say that we are hopeful! 

Dark Winds Season 3 Release Date Speculations

Though another season of Dark Winds is not confirmed at the moment we can still speculate. If the show gets renewed for a third season anytime by now we can expect it to be released in summer 2024. The episode count will likely be like the previous season.

We can expect a minimum of 6 episodes. In an interview, the director asked if the audience would get to see more of Leaphorn and Chee’s action. To that, the director gave a positive response. The official statement reads, “Yeah, it would be great to see Leaphorn and Chee reteam, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid kind of buddies fighting crime. 

And I just hope that Chee will get enough time off that we’ll [still get to] see his seventies outfits with the medallion and all the polyester. As long as we can see him in street clothes every weekend, I think it’ll be great.”


If we get another season it would be exciting. The story will take an interesting turn. There’s definitely a lot of source material for more seasons. We hope AMC greenlit the new season soon. What are your speculations on the possibility of another season?
