The long-awaited White Gold season 2 kicked off on BBC Two last year and aired over the course of six weeks until the grand finale on April 10th, 2019. It has since gained an international audience, since the show was broadcast of Netflix in May 2019.

The first season launched in 2017 before a 22-month slog saw fans completely forget about the series, with many suspecting that it had been cancelled.

Fortunately, that wasn’t the case, and another series could be in the pipeline. Here’s everything you need to know about White Gold season 3!

Why did White Gold season 2 take so long to produce?

The first season of White Gold ended in June 2017, with nearly a two-year gap before the follow-up season.

Complications with production arose when lead actor, Ed Westwick, had sexual misconduct allegations made against him.

The show was briefly suspended mid-way through filming in November 2017.

However, these claims were dismissed and no charges were brought against the 31-year-old actor who plays self-absorbed salesman Vincent Swan.

Writer/director Damon Beesley said to Digital Spy:

We could never have made a second series without Ed. Obviously it was a tough year for everyone, but we knew that the right thing to do was to go by the book and let the investigation play out.

We’re satisfied with how the investigation concluded, hence the decision to resume filming and Ed is fantastic in the show.

Will there be a White Gold season 3?

Unconfirmed yet!

The BBC is yet to confirm whether there will be a third season of White Gold. Plus, the current coronavirus outbreak may affect the production time of another series unless they have filmed it at some point last year.

However, director Damon has hinted that there are plenty of themes from season 2 that could continue into a third instalment. He even detailed to Digital Spy in May 2019 what he would want to do going forward.

So long as the ratings stand strong and the fans call out for a White Gold season 3, we could see a far quicker turnaround in production with the hilarious window salesmen back on our TV screens later this year.

Ed Westwick recently shared an Instagram post asking fans at home to keep watching the series so a new one gets the green light soon.

Twitter needs White Gold season 3 now

Many who have binge-watched the first two seasons want the third series of White Gold straight away.

Unsurprisingly, there have been many tweets from Twitter users asking when season 3 will arrive.
