Great news for fans of the gripping series “Dark Winds”! AMC has officially renewed the show for a highly anticipated Season 3, as reported by Variety.
This exciting announcement follows the conclusion of the second season of “Dark Winds,” which aired its last episode on both AMC and AMC+ on September 3. Furthermore, the series is currently available on Max, giving viewers ample opportunity to dive into this thrilling world. The third season is set to make its debut in early 2025, building on the momentum created by the previous seasons.
Dan McDermott, President of Entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “We started this journey with very high hopes for this series, given the remarkable source material and extraordinary creative team behind it, and it has delivered on every level.” McDermott went on to praise the collaboration of talents involved in the project, from the beloved novels to the dedicated producing team, which includes luminaries such as Robert Redford, George R. R. Martin, showrunner John Wirth, and the exceptional star Zahn McClarnon. He also extended his gratitude to the fans for their unwavering support and the critics for recognizing the show’s brilliance.
“Dark Winds” is based on the Tony Hillerman book series, “Leaphorn & Chee.” The series stars Zahn McClarnon as Joe Leaphorn and Kiowa Gordon as Jim Chee, with an ensemble cast featuring Jessica Matten, Deanna Allison, and Elva Guerra, alongside notable guest stars including Jeri Ryan, Nicholas Logan, A. Martinez, and Joseph Runningfox.
The official synopsis for Season 2 sees Lt. Joe Leaphorn (McClarnon) reuniting with Jim Chee (Gordon), his former deputy turned private eye, as their individual cases converge, leading them to pursue the same suspect. The action unfolds in the high desert of Navajo Country, as they pursue a killer who will stop at nothing to protect a life-altering secret. Their quest not only reopens old wounds but also tests Leaphorn’s moral and professional principles. Assisted by Sgt. Manuelito (Matten) and Valencia County Sheriff Gordo Sena, Leaphorn and Chee must outwit their would-be assassin and restore equilibrium, not only to their own lives but to the entire reservation that depends on their vigilance.
The show’s creative force is led by Graham Roland, while John Wirth serves as the showrunner. The executive producers include Graham Roland, John Wirth, Zahn McClarnon, Robert Redford, George R. R. Martin, Anne Hillerman, Chris Eyre, Vince Gerardis, and Tina Elmo.
Season 2 garnered an impressive average of 1.7 million viewers per episode in the Nielsen Live+3 ratings, showcasing its growing popularity. Additionally, it’s worth noting that over 90 percent of the production team, both in front of and behind the camera, for the second season were Indigenous, reflecting the series’ commitment to authenticity and representation. “Dark Winds” continues to captivate audiences with its compelling storytelling and diverse cast, making Season 3 a highly anticipated event for fans and newcomers alike.
