Ryan Murphy Explains Why 'The Politician' Season 3 Likely Won't Happen for Several Years

Season two of The Politician just premiered on Netflix, but fans will likely be waiting a long time for the third (and possibly final) season of the series.

The show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy has explained why he won’t move forward with a third season for several years.

“I think for me, for that show, I would like to do, and I think all of us involved in it, would probably like to do three seasons total,” Ryan told Collider. “And I think where season two ends, what I would love to do is take a couple of years off and have Ben Platt get a little bit older for his final race. That would obviously be a presidential race, right? That’s always what we had designed, and I think that’s what our plan is. I’m going to wait. Ben is young, so I want to wait a couple of years to figure out how we age him up a little bit. But that’s always been my plan.”

Ben Platt Covers a Classic Broadway Song in 'The Politician' Season 2 - Here It Now!

Ben Platt gets the chance to show off his incredible vocals in the second season of The Politician, which is now streaming on Netflix.

The 26-year-old singer performs an acoustic rendition of his own song “Run Away” during a scene in the season finale. His character, Payton Hobart, then gets called back to do an encore performance and he sings “Corner of the Sky” from the Broadway musical Pippin.

“Run Away” is a song that is featured on Ben‘s debut album Sing to Me Instead. If you want to see him perform the songs live, you should check out his concert special on Netflix.

Last month, it was revealed that Ben is dating an actor who also played the lead role in the musical Dear Evan Hansen.

Ben Platt & Noah Galvin Are Dating!

Ben Platt has a new boyfriend – his longtime friend Noah Galvin!

Noah confirmed the news while being interviewed for the latest episode of the podcast Little Known Facts with Ilana Levine.

Ben and I are dating,” Noah said. “I asked him this morning, I was like, are we allowed to talk about this? And he’s like, ‘Don’t go into our nitty gritty, but yeah, people can know.’ It’s still relatively new.”

Ben starred in the musical Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway and Noah was the actor who replaced him in the show. The musical’s third Evan, Taylor Trensch, is dating the show’s national tour star Ben Levi Ross.

“I know, it’s so g—- incestuous,” Noah said in response to being the second Dear Evan Hansen couple. “But it makes sense, like, we all went through the war together. We all feel very connected.”

Ben and Noah spent the first couple weeks of quarantine together at an Upstate New York home with their friend Kathryn Gallagher and they even hosted a dance party for fans!

You might recognize Noah from his roles in the movie Booksmart and the ABC series The Real O’Neals. Ben stars in the Netflix series The Politician and also appeared in the Pitch Perfect movie series.

Ben Platt Releases New Song 'So Will I,' Produced By Finneas!

Ben Platt has dropped his new song “So Will I,” which was produced by fellow Grammy winner Finneas.

The song will be featured on the deluxe edition of Ben‘s album Sing to Me Instead, which is being released on May 20. The young singer’s concert special for Netflix is being released on the same day.

“I wrote this song at the start of quarantine. I had the idea for it while I was isolated and knew I wanted to write something that could speak to the moment and bring some comfort, but also a song that could have a life far beyond this time,” Ben said in a statement (via Rolling Stone).

He added, “When we finished and saw we had something very special, I brought it immediately to Finneas and asked if he might be willing to produce. I knew that not only would he have the musical fortitude to play all the instruments and produce the entire track on his own in isolation, but also that his emotional intelligence would be a perfect match for the song. He elevated it and lifted it without overpowering the lyric and the storytelling. He’s magic.”

You can download the song now on iTunes or stream it below via YouTube.
