UPDATE: It has been confirmed that “Last Chance U” season 3 will be featuring Independence Community College.
If “Last Chance U” is going to return for season 3 on Netflix, it will not be featuring EMCC — at least that’s what the rumors and early reports indicate.
According to a report from Scott Walters of The Commercial Dispatch in Mississippi, if the hit documentary series returns for a third year, it will feature Independence Community College in Kansas.
Netflix has yet to announce whether a third season is coming.
Third season of "Last Chance U" will profile Independence Community College in Independence, Kansas this fall … Team was 5-4 in 2016

Changing schools for the third season would bring a freshness to the series that appeared to wear off after a second season with Buddy Stephens’ antics at EMCC. Many viewers were critical of the coach’s style, and now it looks like Netflix is ready to move on.
ICC signed Florida State transfer Malik Henry earlier this year. Henry was one of the top-ranked quarterbacks in his recruiting class and will look to help ICC build off of their first winning season in over a decade.
