First season was about Blair Pfaff, an avid white stockbroker on Wall Street. After many farcical events, Blair starts working for Maurice Monroe, an experienced stockbroker. Blair is patient, tough, and challenging at work. At the same time, he tries to preserve his relationship with spoiled heiress Tiffany Georgina. Monroe plans to use Blair to negotiate a secret business deal that involves buying Tiffany’s family business, Georgina Jeans.

Dawn Darcy, the only woman employee at work, runs out of patience when Monroe’s not recognizing her in the workplace. Keith, an employee who bullying Blair, is a secret homosexual who has a relationship with a Broadway artist. Meanwhile, Monroe struggles with the inner turmoil of reaching the high standards she set for herself and living under a false identity. This journey gets more complicated as it takes shape with the characters and Black Monday approaches.

Will there be a season 3 of Black Monday?

The series hasn’t yet renewed for a season 3 by Showtime, so far. Let’s look at the possibilities until we get news from the official broadcasters of the series.

Although historical comedy has its own strong audience, as you can imagine, financial issues lie at the center of everything. When we look at the last season ratings of the series, its rating, which was 0.292 (mil) in the first season, unfortunately drops to 0.113 (mil) in the last season. We think that Season 3 of the series, which has lost 61% viewers, is at risk. The series was renewed for its second season in April 2019, just one month after the 1st season finale. However, the lack of confirmation for season 3 so far makes us pessimistic. On the other hand, it will be useful to share that there is no cancellation news yet by Showtime.

If the series gets a possible season approval, we think it will take at least 1 year to meet the audience as 10 episodes. In that case the series may meet the audience in the summer of 2021.
