In this article, we would like to show you how to get the last 3 characters of a string in Python.

Quick solution:

last_characters = string[-N:]

Get last N elements using [] operator:

string[start_index: end_index]

Where:

  • start_index -  index position, from where it will start fetching the characters (default value is 0),
  • end_index -  index position, where it will end fetching the characters (default value is end of the string),
  • step - interval between each character (default value is 1)
