Marco Polo Season 3: Is There Any Hope?
In one of the Hollywood Reporter’s Full TV Executives Roundtable meetings, Netflix’s Original Content Chief Ted Sarandos made the statement regarding the restoration of the third season. He stated that it gained popularity all through Asia and Europe, and there’s a great deal of spotlight on if your neighbors may be watching it. Also, it’s insignificant and irrelevant since it’s doing what it supposed to do. The statement reflects that though the show failed to gain popularity in America, it gathered quite good reviews in Asian countries. This indicates a slight hope for the Marco Polo Season 3.

If the makers by any chance, choose to make a comeback through season 3, then it will certainly not be going to adopt by Netflix. if another streaming platform like HBO decides to take over the show, then the chance is good that season 2 will come out.
