Why Control Z is ending
The reason Control Z is coming to an end is simply that the story has run its course.
Since Season 1, we’ve followed the adventures of Sofia and the gang at the Colegio Nacional as they try to take out several secret hackers, but in Season 3 their time at the school comes to an end as their graduation is on the horizon.
At the end of Season 3, Sofia and her friends think they’ve finally caught the real hacker behind @allyoursecrets and are preparing to say goodbye to school and move on to the next chapter of their lives.
Therefore, with the gang all going their separate ways, the creators of Control Z and Netflix clearly feel this is the sweet spot to end the series.
Control Z Season 3 is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on July 6, 2022.
