Money and power are two of the things that are responsible for the rampant corruption and chaos prevailing everywhere in the current, modern era. Almost all of the issues that plague the contemporary world are driven by greed to accumulate more wealth. And Netflix’s revealing documentary, Dirty Money, sheds light on this very fact.

Inciting dismay and frustration and yet, because of its eye-opening concept, the first season of the docuseries —  created by Oscar-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney —  was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Documentary Award. No wonder, it was again renewed for a second season. Now, the most natural query is, will we see a Dirty Money season 3? Read on and find out for yourself.

Dirty Money Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?

Dirty Money Season 2 premiered on March 11, 2020, on Netflix in all its entirety of six episodes.

Dirty Money received extremely great reviews from critics and fans alike, with the site consensus on Rotten Tomatoes describing it as: “Informative as it is appalling, Dirty Money exposes the single-mindedness of corporate greed.”

Apart from the rave reviews that the show has garnered throughout its run, it is worthwhile to mention that there’s no dearth of content if the creators decide to go for a third season as well. There’s corruption in almost every corner of the globe where the powerful accumulate wealth at the expense of the less-privileged.

Hence, we are positive that Netflix will announce a renewal in the coming months. If renewed, we can expect Dirty Money season 3 to most likely release sometime in March 2021.

Dirty Money Cast: Who is in it?

As it is the case with a majority of shows that follow the documentary-style format, Dirty Money does not feature a fixed cast. For instance, in season 2, there’s an episode that is centered around Jared Kushner’s real estate empire. Here, the story is explored through the experiences of some key players involved in the case. Again, another episode about Formosa’s Point Comfort facility throws the limelight on notable figures such as U.S. Congressman Joe Wyatt Jr. and Environmental activist Diane Wilson. One more episode includes an appearance from Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Season 3, as and when it happens, will follow a similar format, narrating the featured stories via interviews or clips with important personalities connected to the respective cases.

What is Dirty Money about?

As summarized by Netflix, Dirty Money offers an unprecedented look into “untold stories of scandal, financial malfeasance, and corruption in the world of business.” The second season explores six such cases.

The episode called The Wagon Wheel, directed by Dan Krauss, delves into one of the biggest frauds orchestrated by the employees of Wells Fargo. The Man at the Top, directed by Zach Heinzerling, revolves around the incident when billions were swindled from a Malaysian Sovereign Wealth fund, named 1MDB.

Slumlord Millionaire, directed by Dan DiMauro and Morgan Pehme, focuses on the real estate empire scandal of Jared Kushner, son-in-law of President Trump. Dirty Gold, Directed by Stephen Maing, delves deep into the operations of illegal gold cartel mines in South America. Guardians, Inc., directed by Kyoko Miyake, explains how the state guardianship system exploits helpless senior citizens. Point Comfort, directed by Margaret Brown, exposes the practices of one of the globe’s biggest plastics producers, FormosaPlastics.

Season 3, when renewed, is expected to cover a bunch of new massive scandals that had managed to create a huge stir — both on the internet and in the media.
