As a Christmas treat, Netflix dropped the second season of Alexa and Katie over the festive period. Just over a month after its release, the girls confirmed that they’re returning for a season 3 on Netflix in 2019. Here’s what we know so far.
Netflix has been killing it with their kids content over the past few years with hundreds of titles available carrying the Original banner. That content consists mainly of animated titles but recently, Netflix has been investing in multiple kids sitcoms such as Alexa & Katie.
The second season just released over Christmas with 10 new episodes arriving on December 26th, 2019.
Reviews on IMDb remained relatively the same for the second season with episodes averaging 7.4.
Sitcoms have been a bit shaky for Netflix recently with Fuller House getting a final season order and the adult sitcom, The Ranch rumored to be close to cancelation too.

When will season 3 of Alexa & Katie be on Netflix?
Season 2 seemed to be filmed right off the back of season 1 which is no surprise given how quickly it was renewed. The same is likely happening now with the pair already teasing that they’re heading back to the studio soon.
Here’s a quick recap of when the first two seasons of Alexa & Katie have released on Netflix:
- Season 1 – March 23rd, 2018

The new series as confirmed by EW, will be a longer series clocking in at 16 episodes. The only caveat is that season 3 will be released across two parts.
