Is there going to be a season 4 of 800 words?
Sadly it seems that the third season of 800 words will be the show’s last.
After airing the season 3 finale in 2018, it was revealed that the show had been cancelled and would not return for another series.
In August 2018, Erik spoke to TV WEEK about the end of the series, saying: “800 Words could have run for more seasons. The plan was to jump ahead a year to see how things panned out, but that’s not going to happen, unfortunately,”.
