Hey, you young heroes! Even though we can’t wait for Reservation Dogs season 3 to come out on August 2, we’re also sad that this will be the last time we ride with the group of Oklahoma kids that the show is named after. Last week, a trailer for the show made by Taika Waititi and Sterlin Harjo came out. Now, a set of character posters showing the main characters in all their glory is on the way. We expect more to be dropped, but the first four are Elora Danan by Devery Jacobs, Bear Smallhill by D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Willie Jack by Paulina Alexis, and Cheese by Lane Factor.
Elora, who was named after the Willow character of the same name, can be seen smiling up at the sky. All of the Rez Dogs have had a hard time getting over the death of their close friend Daniel (Dalton Cramer) over the last two seasons, but Elora has taken it the hardest. He even tried to fulfil Daniel’s dream of going to California twice, the second time with success. From the trailer, we know that this season will be one of change and growth for the character as she deals with the recent death of her grandmother and thinks about going back to school.
Bear can be seen with his face in the wind, letting his long, curly hair flow freely. He looks just as sad as ever. Bear and the rest of the group joined Elora on her second trip to the West after she left them behind the first time. They made it to the Pacific Ocean, where they remembered their friend who had died. This past season, Bear’s dad let him down again, and the trailer showed that while the rest of the gang went home after their cross-country trip, Bear will be going on his own adventure with the help of his spirit guide.
What Can We Expect From the Reservation Dogs Season 3?
No award show, from the Critics’ Choice to the Golden Globes, went without mentioning Harjo and Waititi’s amazing coming-of-age work. It’s about a group of kids growing up on an Indian reservation in Oklahoma and the strange people who live with them. This season, viewers will see how things go for the Rez Dogs and hear more from adult characters like Officer Big (Zahn McClarnon), Bear’s mom Rita (Sarah Podemski), Uncle Brownie (Gary Farmer), and everyone’s favourite freestyling duo Mose (Lil Mike) and Mekke (Funny Bone).
Check out the new character posters above and get your tears ready for the last season of Reservation Dogs. The first two episodes will be available on Hulu on August 2.
