Project Blue Book Season 3: The Truth Is Out There But Cancelled!
What is the Project Blue Book, The Investigation By The USAF?
The Project BLUE BOOK was undertaken by the government of the USA under the custody of the National Archives, reflecting on the investigation and identification of unidentified flying objects (UFOs). The project was closed down suddenly by the authorities in 1969. The National Archives has received numerous inquires concerning documents identified as “MJ12” and “Briefing Document: Operation Majestic 12”. The study commenced in 1952, conducted by the United States Air Force (USAF), followed by the projects Sign (1947) and Grudge (1949). The project faced a sudden termination in December 1969 as a result of the Condom Report (1968) stating UFOs clear of any anomalies. Know the reasons for the cancellation of the Project Blue Book Season 3 below:
To Build Up Our Reader’s Curiosities:
A Little About the “Roswell Incident”,
The National Archives writes:
“The National Archives has been unable to locate any documentation among the Project BLUE BOOK records which discuss the 1947 incident in Roswell, New Mexico.
On September 8, 1994, the Secretary of the Air Force, Sheila E. Widnall, announced that the United States Air Force had completed its study to locate records that relate to the alleged 1947 UFO incident near Roswell, New Mexico. Pro-UFO researchers claim that an extraterrestrial spacecraft and its alien occupants were recovered near Roswell in July of 1947 and that this fact was kept from the public.”
A Little About The Area 51 Incident,
Area 51 near Groom Lake, Nevada is the place where the US-government is said to have long maintained a secret base, where local speculations say they hide UFO-based technology and lab experiments. But those are most probably just nothing beyond speculations. It is in actuality, just a military base defamed (or perhaps famed?) by locals, reporters, and journalists to be pulled into several conspiracy theories. But let us think for a moment, have there not been times in the history of conspiracies where they turned out to be partly true? I’ll let you reflect on that here. (Do get imaginative!)
Meanwhile, the basic, flawed premise behind the Area 51 mythology can be boiled down to this: The government won’t reveal what’s going on there, so it must be something of a super-secret.
Project Blue Book (the TV series): Season 1 & Season 2-
American historical drama, science fiction, and conspiracy- premiered on History on Jan 8th, 2019 is created by David O’Leary and starts Aiden Gillen as the protagonist Dr. J. Allen Hynek. It is a joint venture of History Channel and A&E Studios. It consists of brilliant works show-runners and writers such as Sean Jablonski, Zemeckis, Jackie Levine, and Barry Jossen. Project Blue Book Season 1 is a series based on the aforementioned project by the United States Air Force, consisting of ten episodes. Then again on February 10th, 2019, History renewed the show for a ten-episode second season, aired on January 21st, 2020.
The series explores a set of secret investigators into fictional UFO encounters and bizarre occurring under an astrophysics professor and ‘ufologist’ Dr. J. Allen Hynek between 1950s to 1960s, with his partner veteran Captain Michael Quinn (starring Michael Malarkey) of the USAF.
During the increasing gravity of the Cold War tensions, engulfed by political dilemmas Dr. Hynek and Captain Quinn must not give up on Project Blue Book and continue to unravel the truths that UFO conspiracy holds down their rabbit hole. As the plot progresses, UFO cases like Roswell and Area 51 lurk up from the past and match the heights of a global conspiracy, creating an environment of an unstable world. The cancelation of Project Blue Book Season 3, especially after a cliffhanger like that, will obviously disappoint the fandom that Project Blue Book has accrued and held over the past few seasons. In case we get Project Blue Book Season 3, it might not be out before 2021.

More The Realistic Aspects, More The Critical Responses:
The show you might be so ardently waiting for has been rated 65% at Rotten Tomatoes and 56 out of 100 on Metacritic. It although, hold a solid 7.6/10 on IMDB.
1. “The History series predictably sensationalizes and overdramatizes case investigations and the historical figures involved, adding many story elements that simply never happened. It’s already hard enough for those trying to understand the truth about government involvement with U.F.O.s without mixing fact and fiction.” says The New York Times.
2. “History’s 1950s-set UFO investigation drama has a fascinating historical backdrop, but can’t find that ‘X-Files’ balance of monster-of-the-week and mythology.” critiqued The Hollywood Reporter.
3. “The most surprising thing about “Project Blue Book” is that it took so long to become a TV show in the first place. As it will tell you itself at the top of every episode, History’s new scripted drama is “based on true events,” or at least the recorded instances of possible UFO sightings and the Air Force’s subsequent investigations during the 1950s and ’60s” – Variety
4. “Even if it’s less nuanced than The Americans and a bit cornier than The X-Files, Project Blue Book has pulpy energy that carries it over its rougher patches. Whether it has legitimately grand truths to uncover remains to be seen, but for now, it recognizes that concrete answers aren’t nearly as entertaining as mankind’s enduring (and tantalizing) quest to comprehend the great unknown.” – The Daily Beast.
Project Blue Book Season 3 and Its Cancellation? (Sorry folks!):
Project Blue Book Season 3 release date
May 2020 announced the cancellation of the possibility of a Project Blue Book Season 3. The abrupt yet cinematographically wonderful end of Project Blue Book Season 3 ended with a cliff-hanger when Dr. Allen Hynek was shown searing for his partner Capt. Michael Quinn, who previously was shown to be stuck in an underwater explosion where he has torn apart in pieces. Consequently, one might also speculate that Project Blue Book Season 3 cancelation might, at least in part, also be attributed to the pandemic element in the global room.
Nevertheless, A&E production opted out on the creation of the show for Project Blue Book Season 3. The petition signed launched on May 7th, 2020 to support the creators in finding a new set of networks to support the creation of the show is the only hope for our fellow Project Blue Book watches. It’s really unfair when a show we’ve been so engrossed in ends abruptly without closure, but I guess that is how life works. (Alexa, please play melancholy songs).
Could this series be revived for Project Blue Book Season 3 someday? Stay tuned for the latest updates at InstaChronicles!
