UK to return for season 4

The dog is man’s best friend. In fact, it goes further than that. The right dog can, on an individual level, be the personal best friend of its respective owner, man, woman or child, to the point of challenging even the deepest interpersonal human friendships. The media landscape is apparently oversaturated with canine content. Countless movies and television programs use a dog for comic relief or some sort of treat for an audience that would otherwise be apathetic to a series. However, a few more recent shows, instead of using a puppy as an on-screen reflection, have chosen to showcase dogs for what they can truly be: lovable, essential family members.


Here is where The Dog House: UK happily leaps into the public eye. The series, which has just released its third season, is set in the English countryside at a humble animal sanctuary, Wood Green. In each episode, would-be adopters, each with their own struggles, arrive at the rural rescue in hopes of adopting an animal. Potential adoptees are the stars of the show, and the excellent staff at Wood Green work diligently to match adopters with the animal of their dreams.

As such, audiences should be begging HBO Max to to bring back The Dog House: UK come back for another season.
