The renewal news was announced ahead of The Righteous Gemstones two’s premiere, which is due to air in the winter of 2022. The Righteous Gemstones follows the story of a fabled and hypocritical family of televangelists and megachurch pastors, who lead a lavish lifestyle out of the church funds.

Following the statement that the series has been picked up for a third installment, fans are eager to get more specifics about The Righteous Gemstones Season 3. In case you are one of them, stick with us till the end as we cover all the relevant details about the third part of this hit black comedy. 


The Righteous Gemstones Season three: Release date


Disappointingly, there is no set release date of The righteous Gemstones season three as of now. Having said that, the third installment is still a long way off. 

However, with season two of the Righteous Gemstones’ production over, fans could expect that its threequel going into production soon. Season two is slated to drop in January 2022 after a wait of over two years. The Righteous Gemstones two came to a grinding halt due to the global covid situations in March 2020 and began shooting nearly following a year’s gap. Now the fans are in for a treat with season two’ and three’s releases.


The Righteous Gemstones Season three: Plot


Currently, the show creators are working on several ideas for a third installment. Considering that the black comedy is still in its early stages, it is tricky to anticipate the storyline of The Righteous Gemstones. Nonetheless, potentially, the plot will more or less pick up from the climax of season two, which is also a work-in-progress. Season one saw that the rich lifestyle of the Gemstones is at stake as an unknown group uses an unethical video of Jesse ( Eli’s eldest son) and his pals against the famous Gemstones family. 


It would be thrilling to witness the world-known televangelists returning to the screens for another season. We would disclose more information about The Righteous Gemstones 3 as and when more specifics are known. So, stay tuned.

The Righteous Gemstones season three: Cast


It is too early to tell the cast of The Righteous Gemstones three. Yet we speculate that if not all, most characters of the follow-up to The Righteous Gemstones may return for another season. With that, John Goodman will reprise his role as Eli Gemstone, the head of The Gemstones family. John will take on the role of the lead pastor at Gemstone Salvation Center, who is a widower. The talented Danny McBride is likely to suit up for the third season. Danny might appear as Jesse Gemstone, the eldest son of Eli Gemstone, whose leaked video is a threat to the reputation of The Gemstones. Adam DeVine will return to his role as Kelvin Gemstone, the real gem in the Gemstone family, while the third installment will bring Edi Patterson into the folds as Judy Gemstone, the daughter of Eli. We saw a new addition to the Gemstone as Billy Freeman joins the family business of The Gemstone. Billy or Baby is the alienated brother-in-law of Eli Gemstone. Billy is being played by Walton Goggins. Goggins was last seen in Vice Principals. 


Season one of the HBO series also features Cassidy Freeman, Tony Cavalero, Tim Baltz, and Skyler Gisondo in supporting roles. Therefore, it is a safe bet to say that these cast members might make a comeback in The Righteous Gemstone three. But this is just a guess as nothing has been revealed yet either by the creators or the showrunners. 


The Righteous Gemstones is based on characters developed by Danny McBride. Danny has also helmed the first installment with Jody Hill and David Gordon Green. The trio has collaborated previously on several projects such as Vice Principals and Eastbound & Down. McBride and Hill teamed up as the comedy shows’ creators while Hill and Green joined as the directors. 

Besides The Righteous Gemstone two, fans are excited to watch Halloween Ends, written by McBride and Gordon Green. Halloween Ends is the threequel to the Halloween franchise, which is scheduled for the 2022 release.
