As mentioned earlier, Documentary Now! is a mockumentary show and considering that, nothing should change for now. The series presents itself as a long-running news magazine for documentaries, initially celebrating its 50th season. Mirren appears at the beginning of each episode to introduce the “classic” documentary that the audience is about to see.
The idea for the series is derived from a pre-tape short film from Saturday Night Live where Armisen, Hader, Meyers were former cast members. All the three seasons have received critical acclaim and audiences are expecting more from the upcoming season.
Coming to the cast, Helen Mirren has been presenting the show since the first season and she is expected to come back in Season 4. No other changes has been announced until now.
The latest season of Documentary Now! premiered in February 2019 and ended on March 2019. Its been a long time and the makers have already confirmed that the fourth season will premiere in 2022, although a specific date is yet to be announced.
