The Owl House’s Three-Episode Third Season is set to Premiere on October 15th

While this was the first panel since its premiere in 2020, it is also it’s last. For two seasons it has captivated its viewers with its unique story, and well-written characters. But that has come to a screeching halt due to what was described as a “Branding Problem“. It didn’t fit Disney’s brand because it was serialized and attracted an older audience. According to Polygon, Terrace sounded disappointed that she didn’t get to dive into Hooty’s true origin or give some more backstory to Raine and Eda, who she calls her favorite characters to write. But she says that the crew went all out when it came to making sure that the animation and story were the absolute best for this last hurrah. The Three-Episode Third Season is set to Debut on the Disney Channel on October 15th.
