Pen15 Season 3 Release Date: When will it be air?
Here’s a bad news for Pen15 fans, Pen15 won’t be returning for a third season.
The second season of Pen15 was premiered on 18 September 2020 on the streaming network Hulu. It compromises only seven episodes of 27 to 29 minutes each. The makers only aired half of the episodes in season 2. The rest of them you will get to watch in early 2021.
Episode 8 of season 2 titled “Jacuzzi,” will be an animated episode in which we will watch Maya and Anna go for a family trip to Florida with the latter’s father. A summary from Hulu states, “On vacation with Curtis, Anna and Maya are introduced to new crippling insecurities. The girls try to ignore them, but a mystical turn makes their self-doubt impossible to forget.”
Hulu’s PEN15 is coming to an end after only two seasons. Pen 15 Season 2 which telecasted its final batch of episodes on December 3 — will now be the show’s final season, according to a Hulu official.
Konkle and Erskine have been working on the show that became PEN15 for nearly a decade, and insiders told The Hollywood Reporter that they were willing to take a break. Also, they welcomed their first children recently: Konkle’s daughter, Essie Wunderle Anfanger, was born in early 2021, whereas Erskine’s boy, Leon Frederick, was born in May.
It doesn’t mean Maya and Anna’s journey is ended for good; according to other sources, Hulu is very interested in doing more seasons of PEN15 if Erskine and Konkle ever plan to return to the plot. But, for the time being, it’s best to leave middle school’s adolescent misery behind and return to adulthood’s normal discomfort.
You can watch the special animated episode, scripted by Konkle, which will come on Hulu on August 27.

Pen15 Animated Episode Recap:
Pen15 is about to release a new animated episode based on the same scenario. The thing that changed is that in its animated special Jacuzzi, the series may have produced its best episode yet.
Surprisingly, Jacuzzi outperforms anything that has come before it. Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle go on a vacation to Florida with Anna’s newly single dad in this little, pleasant holiday episode. They met some guys, try some alcohol, and get into some little mischief. In reality, nothing significant occurs, yet it all appears significant according to the lens through which it is viewed.
Pen15 takes place 20 years ago, and the animation immediately reminds me of MTV’s 90s series Liquid Television.
The fact that Jacuzzi is animated also helps to disguise the show’s primary concept, which is that adult women are playing with children. Erskine and Konkle don’t have to try to seem younger with clothes and makeup, and there’s no longer a creepy moment when they start talking to 13-year-old boys. Maya and Erskine are identical to everyone else in animated form. If the age disparity between the performer and the role has been a turnoff for you, this episode might be the place to start.
Let’s come to pen15 season 3.
You might get to watch it by the end of 2021. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the shooting has to be bound up in many locations, but now, as the lockdown is shifting from various premises, Pen 15 season 3 shoot would resume anytime and maybe it will hit the screens anytime in 2022.
Till then, you only have to wait for an official statement.
