Season 3 of The owl house premiered on Disney Channel last Saturday — but if you missed it live, there’s good news: the full special is available on the official Disney Channel YouTube Channelat least in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia (sorry, Canadians!).
The 45-minute special, titled “Thanks to Them,” is the first of three episodes that conclude the epic witch tale. Despite critical acclaim and a passionate fan base, The owl house notoriously failed to get a full order for the third season. But even with the limitations of a shorter season, The owl house is still stellar. In fact, this episode shows just how brilliant the show is, with emotional character beats with rousing plot action and touches of real-life shenanigans that get to the heart of the show. It’s just fun to watch the witches interact with the human world, especially after Luz is blinded by the magical Boiling Isles for two seasons.
Season 3 begins with the brave Luz and her group of witch friends back in the human world. They are stranded, and while Luz’s magnanimous mother Camila has no problem taking them all in, they desperately want to return to the Boiling Isles – especially since when they left, a mysterious chaotic entity known as the Collector had taken over.
The remaining two episodes will air sometime in 2023. The first two seasons of The owl house are available on Disney Plus.
