Netflix's The Toys That Made Us is returning for a third season, set to cover more toy heavies.
The Toys That Made Us Season 3 is coming soon, set to dispel the whole “8-part documentary series” mandate from its theme song. Indeed, the success of Netflix’s incisively entertaining toy industry series made it too good to keep in its proverbial packaging, leading the way for Season 3 to tackle more toy titans.
Seasons 1 of the series tackled Star Wars, Barbie, He-Man/Masters of the Universe and G.I. Joe, and Season 2 showcased Star Trek, Transformers, LEGO and Hello Kitty. Soon, major gaps will be filled with Season 3.
In the latest news on the third season of The Toys That Made Us, the long-awaited reveal of its release date has arrived!
The Toys That Made Us Season 3 Release Date
The Toys That Made Us Season 3 is set to premiere on Netflix on Friday, November 15.
Series creator Brian Volk-Weiss made the announcement official in a video, joined by Walter Jones, who played Zack Taylor, the original Black Ranger on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers; an especially apropos guest, since Season 3 will be covering the Power Rangers.
The Toys That Made Us Season 3 Episodes
At San Diego Comic-Con 2018, The Toys That Made Us Season 3 confirmed its quartet of episodes and we were lucky enough to hear this news firsthand.

We loved talking with Susanne Riette Keith, one of the former main designers at Hasbro. She’s responsible for many of the popular G1 My Little Pony designs! #TTTMU #MyLittlePony pic.twitter.com/e8CYSuHiIm

…Oh, and we weren’t kidding about dispelling the “8-part documentary series” line from the theme song. It was confirmed at the show’s Comic-Con panel that the line will, henceforth, be replaced with “ongoing documentary series.”
While there’s no release date to cite for The Toys That Made Us Season 3, it’s likely that the new season of the passion-fueled brainchild of creator/executive producer Brian Volk-Weiss should arrive before the year’s end.
Moreover, the show’s newly codified long-term design now gives hope for other major classic toy properties (Pokémon, Beanie Babies, Cabbage Patch Kids, ThunderCats, Voltron, Gundam, Marvel, DC etc.,) to get their episodic moments in the spotlight.
