Behind the Scene

The beauty queen of jerusalem season 3

In fact, it’s not really season 3 but rather the second season because as a reminder, Netflix divided the first season into two parts that were composed of ten episodes each. The wait between the two parts was not long since they were filmed at the same time!

Unfortunately this will not be the case for season 3 of The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem, which started production last month. We don’t know yet if the streaming platform has decided to order the same number of episodes or if the next parts might be slightly shorter.

The success of the original creation is not surprising when you know that the book on which the series is based has sold 300,000 copies worldwide. Normally, the storyline would take us back to the late 1970s. It is therefore possible that season 3 of The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem is the last (or rather the second season …).

When will the trailer for season 3 be released ?

If the production started only a few weeks ago, then the trailer of the season 3 of The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem will not be released for a long time. Don’t expect to see Luna again before 2023 because it is almost impossible that the production will be finished before the end of the year … In the meantime, you can always watch this video that shows us the behind-the-scenes shooting of the first season :

What is the release date for season 3 of The beauty queen of jerusalem on netflix?

The streaming platform has not yet made an announcement regarding the release of the next episodes online since the health crisis could disrupt the shooting of season 3 of The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem and thus upset the plans of the producers … It will take at least a year before we can binge-watch the continuation of the series.

The release date of the season 3 of La Belle de Jérusalem will thus be in July or August 2023 according to our first estimates. Obviously we will have more information in a few months, when the shooting of the episodes will have progressed well.

For the moment, we just have to wait but unlike many other original creations, at least we are sure to find our heroes very soon!

Where does The beauty queen of Jerusalem take place ?

According to Yes Distribution, this is one of the most expensive productions in the history of Israeli television. The Beauty Queen of Jerusalem was filmed all over the country, as well as in the historical sites of Jerusalem and Safed.
