Will there be a Season 3?
Currently, there is no confirmation yet about a follow-up to « Bienvenidos a Eden » from Netflix. However, this should not be a cause for concern as the second season has just been released, and most subscribers are probably still watching it. The viewership numbers are very encouraging, and as you know, Netflix closely monitors audience figures. If a series is popular among subscribers, it has a higher chance of continuing on the platform. The decision will be made within the next 28 to 30 days.

In the second season, Zoa and Bel discovered compromising information about several Eden inhabitants and are therefore sentenced to death.
