Marco Polo Season 3: Any News About Season 3?

Marco Polo Season 3 has been stuck in limbo for quite a while. The American drama series aired its last episode back in July 2016. There have been rumors and speculation since then that Netflix and producers that a season three may be in the works, although the series was canceled after only two seasons. Fans still have their fingers crossed and hop for the show to come back even though Netflix took a hit of $200M from the two seasons. 

What Did Viewers Like About The Show?

The show received decent ratings and it caters to fans who liked period pieces set in the 13th Century. Producers didn’t hold back with spending money and the first season cost nearly $90M and employed over 500 people.

Fresh ideas floated around the set and the series provided a diverse cast of Asians, Persians, Chinese, Mongolians, and others. The large budget also involved spending money on visual effects and backdrops that highlighted the show’s cinematography.

What Caused Marco Polo To Flop?

There were a lot of missed opportunities for the show. “While Marco Polo possesses scope, scale, and an excessive amount of exposed skin, the series exhibits only an irregular pulse. This leaves a property that can be fun taken strictly on its own terms, but deficient in the binge-worthy qualities upon which Netflix’s distribution system has relied,” one news organization stated.
