Early on, I think you set out to tell these iconic pieces of Gus’s story and the great pieces of the comic, but the beauty of the long storytelling and Gus’s journey through 24 episodes is that the characters themselves tell you what they want. want to be.

Along with the initial Season 3 announcement, Netflix confirmed four cast changes/additions:

  • rosalinda bye (Better things, Mulan) as Zhang has been promoted to a series regular
  • Amy Seimetz (no sudden movement, pet cemetery) as Birdie moved up to a series regular.
  • Gee Face (The Expansion, The Call Of The Wild) joins as a new series regular.
  • Ayazhan Dalabaeva as Nuka, he joins as a new series regular.

They are also expected to return for the new season:

  • Nonso Anozie as Tommy Jepperd
  • christian conversion like gus
  • adeel akhtar as Dr Aditya Singh
  • dania ramirez as Aimee Eden
  • Aliza Vellani as Rani Singh
  • Stefania LaVie Owen like bear
  • james brolin like the narrator

So far, we only know that season 3 will be an «Arctic story,» with showrunner Jim Mickle saying in a statement:

“Season 3 is an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic story. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in season 1 or 2.»

That leads us to speculate on what we can expect from the upcoming third and final season:

Will Gus meet his mom?

At the end of the season, Gus, Jepperd, Becky, and Wendy have left Wyoming and are traveling to Alaska.

As the potential key to a cure for the sick, also known as the H5G9 virus, it is imperative to the rest of the human race that Gus can make it to Alaska and help his mother, Birdie, develop a cure.

Will Dr. Singh try to kidnap Gus?

Dr. Singh became so obsessed with his work that he repulsed his wife, Rani, who eventually left him in season 2 and destroyed his research.

Instead of trying to find his wife, Dr. Singh goes after Gus, determined to continue his research. There may be an opportunity for Dr. Singh to attack when his guard is down, but the chances will be slim.

Alternatively, if Dr. Singh finds out that Birdie is alive, he can throw her eggs in that basket and try to continue his research by helping her find a cure. However, if Birdie is alive, the chances of letting a man help her and have caused so much harm to her child are incredibly slim.

Is Birdie really alive?

The biggest question is whether or not Birdie is alive.

Considering we haven’t seen Birdie in person yet, there’s still no guarantee that she’s alive and well. A tragic twist of fate would be for Gus and her group to find out where she is supposed to live, only to discover that she is either dead or missing.

What’s in Zhang’s cage?

The creatures inside his cage are more than likely hybrids. In particular, hybrids that are partially predatory.

As the series has deviated from the comics, the creatures in the cage could be ‘The Dog Boys’, a group of cannibalistic dog-hybrid children who were cruelly bred to be nothing more than weapons.

If Zhang goes after Gus, expect him to bring his hungry hybrid pets to hunt them down.
