The animated series The Owl House is returning for a third season. Sooner than you think. The Owl House has garnered widespread acclaim from both audiences and critics, and it is especially notable for its LGBTQIA+ representation in comparison to other Disney media.
The third season will be quite different from the previous ones. When a human girl discovers a gateway to another world in the series, she befriends a rebellious witch and a warrior. She soon realizes her dream of becoming a witch and is welcomed into a new family.
Let’s explore more about the upcoming season and what it has in store for the audience. We have a release date and time for the spectators.
The Owl House Season 3 Release Date & Time
Season three will comeback on Disney Channel and Disney XD on October 15, 2022, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The season will actually consist of three 44-minute specials, with the other two premiering in 2023. The first special is titled “Thanks to Them.”
The first special synopsis reads, “After months of trying, Luz and her friends make a daring attempt to return to the Demon Realm.” Plus, this season is scheduled to be the final season of the series.
Dana Terrace, the show’s creator, stated that the final season would be a comprehensive 20-episode season. Despite the series’ popularity, Disney Channel decided to cut the third season down to three 44-minute episodes. The creator tweeted, “Hooty hoot we’re back, October 15.”

The Shows Creator Talked About The Cut
The third season will pick right up where the second season ended, with Luz and her mates trapped in the human world — and inclined to go to any length to return to the demon realm and safeguard the Boiling Isles from Emperor Belos and the Collector.
Terrace said regarding the LGBTQ+ content, “While we have had issues airing in a few countries [and are just straight up banned in a few more] I’m not gonna assume bad faith against the people I work with in LA.”
”They just wanted to be done with TOH and this was the perfect chance to do that. Even getting the consolation s3 episodes was difficult, apparently. Hard to say, I wasn’t allowed to be a part of any conversations until I was just… Told,” Dana Terrace added.
She also said, “At the end of the day, there are a few business people who oversee what fits into the Disney brand, and one day one of those guys decided [The Owl House] didn’t fit that ‘brand’…
The story is serialized [BARELY compared to any average anime lmao], our audience skews older, and that just didn’t fit this one guy’s tastes. That’s it! Ain’t that wild?”
Terrace expressed disappointment at the show’s cutting during a panel at the 2022 New York Comic Con, but applauded the production staff for trying despite the reduction, saying “What can you do at this point? We did our best.”

I’m confused, will it be on time ET or PT? and the UTC type timezone? I’m very confused.
I love this show so much. I’m gonna be so upset when I am completely done with it. I’m sad to see it’s almost done being shown. But it will go out with a bang! I love it!!
Ahhh! I woke up as early as I could to see if season 3 dropped yet but I am very excited for 9 pm now! I really love how instead of just ending the show on the last episode of season 2 or just having 3 20 min episodes we got some longer ones!
I have to say that I am extremely disappointed with Disney for their decision to cancel the show. This show is truly one of the best that has been produced in a while that so many of us no matter the age, can relate too. I look forward to watch the final season even though my heart will break as well having to say goodbye to the characters I love so much. I am grateful for the creator Dana Terrance, for the amazing storylines and characters that I have come to love and share with my partner and the hope it brought to me seeing a Latina lgbtqa+ Main character on the show to see her represented in such a relatable way. I saw so much of myself in her, with her interested for the weird an unusual, her caring nature and her love of those she call family. I hope to see more magical stories like that in the future, this one will always have my heart though.
My kids (14 y/o) and I love watching this show together. It’s truly enjoyable for everyone young and old. I wish Netflix or Hulu could have picked it up so it would be able to carry-on (a la ‘Lucifer’).
Once again screw disney
Why couldn’t you just put season 3 in the owl house so we could watch it? I don’t want to wait until 9pm!
Does anyone know if the new episode will be on Disney+ ? If so, when?
common disney L
Wow!! I love this it’s the best show
When it says streaming on the Disney Channel that means i can go on my computer, go to Disney channel and watch it there?
I dont understand why it was cancelled for “not fitting the brand” well your BRAND should have more variety. They just cancelled one of the most popular shows that was made by disney. Missed opportunity, very disappointed in disney.
It’s really unfortunate that they would do this. I loved watching this show and got so darn invested in these characters. Disney may have wonderful shows, but sometimes it’s workers can be jerks.
As always Disney knows just how to ruin my trust in them. they have these great shows like gravity falls and the owl house, and even larger things like star wars, and yet Disney somehow is the one always making decisions that go against what the fans want. the people who made the shows like the owl house are great story tellers, and props to them, but disney does not deserve the high seat that they have, and I am being fed up with them.
