On Sunday night, October 9, the second presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will take place. Neither Gary Johnson nor Jill Stein made the cut, but supporters are hoping they still have time to get the required 15 percent polling results to make it into the very last debate. When is the third debate?

Here’s what you need to know.

The second debate is Sunday, October 9 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. The third debate will take place on Wednesday, October 19 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Chris Wallace of Fox News will moderate the third debate. This last debate will not be the same format as tonight’s debate. Rather, it will be in an identical format as the first debate. There will be six time segments, 15 minutes each, on major topics the moderator picks. Each segment will start with a question and each candidate will have two minutes to answer. They’ll also have the chance to respond to each other. The moderator will use the rest of the time to delve deeper into the topics being discussed.

In addition to the presidential debates, there was a vice presidential debate last week on Tuesday, October 4.

All of the debates will be broadcast live on all major news networks and livestreamed online.

This last round will be a war.
It might as well be a boxing match.
I think we can all see that coming.
It will be interesting, horrible, good, bad and funny.
Like the others, except each one will be going for a knockout.
Let the debate, er, I mean fight begin.
