Status for season 3
The series is NOT renewed for a new season. It has been cancelled and there will not be a season 3
Mystery drama TV show Top of the Lake premiered on March 18, 2013, with its second season coming out 4 years later in 2017. Now it’s been another 4 years without any official announcement from the Sundance Channel or the show’s creator Jane Campion. Considering the complete silence, it’s safe to assume that Top of the Lake Season 3 is cancelled.
Some may argue that the second season also aired after over 4 years. So, there might still be a chance for Top of the Lake Season 3. But it’s worth remembering that Jane Campion announced the renewal for the second season in 2014 and the shooting had already begun in 2015. If the network had any plans for Top of the Lake Season 3, there would’ve been a statement or some news about the shooting.
As hard as it is for us to say goodbye to our favorite mystery, Top of the Lake Season 3 will not be happening.
Top of the Lake is a mystery drama television series created and written by Jane Campion and Gerard Lee, and directed by Campion and Garth Davis. The first season follows Detective Robin Griffin and deals with her investigation of the disappearance of a pregnant 12-year-old girl in New Zealand. The second season, China Girl, is set in Sydney five years later, as Detective Griffin investigates the death of an unidentified Asian girl found at Bondi Beach.
