Young Royals stars Edvin Ryding and Omar Rudberg have opened up about the show’s upcoming final season.

Since 2021, fans have immersed themselves in the Swedish LGBTQ+ drama and the romantic love story between Prince Wilhelm and Simon.

The first two seasons of the series were met with overwhelming praise from critics, who lauded the performances of Ryding and Rudberg, the scandalous storylines and for casting teenage actors in teenage roles.

The series also cultivated a passionate following, with the first season cracking the top 10 of various English-language countries around the world.

In addition, Ryding and Rudberg were also catapulted to global superstardom with a combined Instagram following of four million.

On 14 December, Netflix announced that the beloved series was renewed for a third and final season.

In a statement, head writer and co-creator Lisa Ambjörn said: “I’ve always imagined Young Royals being told in three parts, and because of the fans’ dedication to our story, we get to tell the last one.”

Ambjörn continued to explain that the ending of Young Royals has been “clear to me from the start” and that she’s “thankful and honoured” to finish the series as she originally intended.

On 16 December, Ryding and Rudberg spilt all the tea on the show’s renewal during their US talk show debut on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

“It’s still very early, the script is still being written. But we know that it’s going to be the final season, so, which is kind of bittersweet, but we’re looking forward for this chapter to close,” Rdying explained.

Rudberg echoed similar sentiments, stating: “Yeah, and we’re looking forward to seeing them smile.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the GAY TIMES cover stars opened up about the success of the show and if they expected it to be a hit with viewers.

“I mean, we kind of saw that coming, I would say. Because I really love the storyline. And I fell in love with the script when I first read it,” Rudberg explained.

“But the only thing, though, I could never imagine that we would be on The Fallon Show in New York. So now it’s kind of like getting to me. So now I’m like, ‘it’s pretty big now.'”

As of this writing, a release date for season three of Young Royals has not been announced.
