Are the rumours about Masters Of The Air (Band Of Brothers third sequel) true? Can we expect the third season any time soon? Well, come along, let’s try and figure out what the scenario is like!

Masters Of The Air: When’s it Releasing?
Rumours about Masters Of The Air have been in the air for several years now. However, the production team or the makers of the show haven’t come up with any official announcements or updates as to when the show is going to hit the screens. It is for sure that it will premiere on Apple TV+. But when we do not know. The director asserted in an interview that the show has been in development for many years now. Due to one reason or another, it could not happen. Even as of now, no official affirmation has been provided. Considering how awesome the first two parts of the series were, the third sequel is much awaited! The makers have confirmed that there will be a renewal. So, it’s for certain that Masters Of The Air is happening! Apple TV+ revealed that its filming and production began in March 2021 (with a production cost of around $200 million). If we were to anticipate the release date of Masters Of The Air, it would be either by the end of 2022 or later in 2023. Given the Covid situation, the postponement is inevitable.

Masters Of The Air: Potential Star Cast?
We can expect, if not all, then most of the cast members of the previous two instalments to be featured in this season. That being, the star cast of Masters Of The Air might be:

Anthony Boyle as Major Crosby
Callum Turner as Major John Egan
Raff Law as Sgt Ken Lemmons
Josh Bolt as Lt. Winifred ‘Pappy’ Lewis
Damian Lewis as Major Richard Winters
Louis Greatorex as Captain Joseph ‘Bubbles’ Payne.
Freddy Carter as Lt. David Friedkin
Barry Keoghan as Lt. Curtis Biddick
Sam Gittins as Sgt William McClelland
Nikolai Kinski as Colonel Harold Huglin
Mikey Collins as Lt. Paul Joseph Schmalenbach.
James Badge Dale
Rami Malek

As of this writing, the potential star cast list of Masters Of The Air has not been revealed. We only have official updates regarding the release date of the third instalment, other than that, we do not have much to say.

However, no official confirmation has been made by the show developers or the production team regarding the plot of Masters Of The Air.
