The Making of the Mob Season 3 Release Date
We are still waiting to hear who will be the focus of the third season of the series. Actually, it has not been confirmed that there will be another sequel, but we believe AMC will renew the show since the first two seasons were well-received by the audience and there are still so many iconic figures in the world of crime that the viewers would definitely like to know more about. It has been speculated that AMC will reveal the news about Season 3 this summer. In case they make an announcement earlier, we’ll let you know.
