Canada's Global Television has announced that Departure has been renewed for a third season. The pickup is an early one, as the thriller has yet to pencil in a return date for Season 2. The series premiered for US audiences on Peacock last fall.

Billed as an event drama, the first season takes place following the disappearance of a passenger plane over the Atlantic Ocean. Aviation investigator Kendra Malley is brought in to investigate, and while the world watches, Kendra and her team race to locate the missing aircraft and any possible survivors.

Season 2 of Departure will focus on the aftermath of a deadly crash of a high-speed automated train travelling from Toronto to Chicago, with Kendra once again leading the investigation. Season 3, which will likely air in 2022, will follow the aftermath of a deadly ferry accident.
