The sequel was announced in October 2020 by Apple TV+ and production officially began filming in April this year. Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks will come together once again as executive producers.

Season 2, called The Pacific, followed in 2010 and now we're all eagerly awaiting the third instalment.

Each miniseries focuses on a different section of the US armed forces during the second world war. They're based on the books by Donald L Millner, which contain true accounts from the service men of the Easy Company of the US Army, 101st Airborne Division.

Season 1 followed the story of a team of elite US paratroopers and season 2 turned our attention to three marines battling in the Pacific Theater during WW2. Season 3 looks set to be just as action-packed as it places the spotlight on the American 'bomber boys' who helped bring Hitler's Nazi Germany to its knees in the 1940s.

Is anyone from Easy Company still alive in 2021?

The last we heard, there's only one surviving member of the real Easy Company. His name is Col. Edward Shames and in 2018, at age 96, he reportedly appeared as a guest speaker at the annual Veteran's Breakfast hosted by the Government Employees Insurance Company (GEICO).

We believe him to still be alive. In 2020, he was interviewed by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EEA) for a blog post. Shames regularly attends the EEA Airventure Expo.
