The Kominsky Method Season 3 is again coming back for its one final outing, but along with some major changes to its final season, including the heftiest than Alan Arkin, who will not be returning. Here you will find everything that we know so far about Season 3 of The Kominsky Method,d which is likely to be hitting Netflix in 2021. However, this Chuck Lorre comedy series is the 2nd comedy series that the popular producer (behind The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men) has already put on Netflix so far.
His prime was the now-doomed Disjointed series, which only continued one season, but The Kominsky Method exceeded that and is simply one of the greatest comedies on Netflix right now. However, proving this was the 3 nominations Netflix has picked up for it (Netflix picked up 160 nominations in whole) at the 2020 Emmys with those being for:
- A Lead Actor In A Comedy Series
- Best Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series
- Comedy Series
Its season one hit on Netflix in November 2018, with its season two dropping on October 25th, 2019. Now let’s have a look at what all we know about season three of The Kominsky Method.
Is The Kominsky been renewed for its upcoming Season 3?
Official renewal status of The Kominsky Method: Renewed (last updated: 7th January 2020)
For over six months, this series seemed isolated as Netflix hadn’t formally declared a 3rd season. However, this changed in July 2020 when Netflix officially declared it would return but noticed that it would be the last entry into the Netflix show.
The Kominsky Method has been renewed for a third and final season.
Creator Chuck Lorre said, "It's been an incredible experience to see the warm response from both audiences and critics. I'm excited to wrap up the story with this final chapter.”

According to some origins, Netflix shaped the revision in early 2020 but didn’t get publicly published until later in the year.
Chuck Lorre on the renewal stated:
“It’s been an unbelievable experience to see an emotional reply from both the audiences and the critics as well. I’m keen to wrap up the story with this ending chapter.”
In the following interview, Chuck Lorre talked about the show and how it varies from building comedy series for other systems. He also expressed about the third season in-depth, saying:
“This third season seems like the correct way to go, we feel we can bring it to a very pleasant ending. I’m addressing it now. I don’t know [the ending] yet, I’m expecting I’ll figure it out as I write,”
Before the whole renewal, we were’ 50/50 on the show’s return. In the year 2019, Chuck Lorre talked deeply of his show, speaking to THR that The Kominsky Method was one of his main centers, saying: “I micromanage the difficulty out of Kominsky. That’s been my kid this year.”
In an interview with Collider back in November 2019, when questioned about the 3rd season and whether the conversations are being had, Michael Douglas stated that conversations were occurring. He again continued, “he thinks all the mobile parts line up altogether.”
When did The Kominsky Method Season 3 commence its filming?
Current production status of The Kominsky Method: Filming (last updated: 12th August 2020)
When this series was originally renewed, its filming wasn’t permitted to begin due to the continuing pandemic which froze most Netflix productions. However, in an interview in July, Lorre did wish that production on his shows would get back started in fall 2020, and that does seem to be the problem with many Netflix shows, but we’ve yet to have confirmation that The Kominsky Method has followed suit.
In December 2020, we received a word through filming licenses reported by Variety that filming had started on the 3rd and last season. Especially, filming had restarted in Los Angeles, California, at some point in November 2020. Hence, a filming close date has yet to be discovered.
The Kominsky Method: When would it be on Netflix?
We were basically foreseeing The Kominsky Method to come on Netflix by the end of 2020 if it followed its regular schedule. However, with the summer comeback, delay in filming, we’re now awaiting the series to debut at some point in 2021.
Early Details That We Know About The Kominsky Method Season 3
Alan Arkin won’t return for season 3
The greatest change going into season 3 will be Alan Arkin’s departure, who will not be coming back for the 3rd season, which was approved in late-September 2020. No real reason for his departure has been provided, although Deadline does tell it was a decision made long ago.
He won’t mysteriously pass in the show; however, he’s being signed off, which could be done in a manner of ways. Alan Arkin may not be connected with The Kominsky Method season 3. Still, you can find the actor in a different Netflix project published in early 2020 in the form of his character in Spenser Confidential.
