Will There Be Darker Than Black Season 3?

So far, ‘Darker Than Black Season 3’ has not been officially announced, so there is no release date for the third season of this anime, but the question is if there will be a Darker Than Black Season 3 and when it will be released.

Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not there will be a new season of Darker Than Black and when it will be released.

The anime series Darker Than Black, known as Dākā Zan Burakku -Kuro no Keiyakusha in Japanese, is an anime-original series that was first announced in December 2006.

The Darker Than Black series was created and directed by Tensai Okamura.

Darker Than Black is a great supernatural anime series with mystery and thriller elements loved by people worldwide, which follows a contractor codenamed Hei, also called a black reaper, in the underground world.

Hei, like his associates, undertakes missions for the mysterious and ruthless Syndicate.

The anime television series Darker Than Black has had two seasons so far and 4 OVAs, directed by Tensai Okamura and animated by Studio Bones.

There has been no word on whether the studio or the director will return for Darker Than Black Season 3.

The first 25-episode Darker Than Black television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2007. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Darker Than Black Season 3 Episode 1 or some sequel.

Will There Be Darker Than Black Season 3?

Darker Than Black Season 3 will never happen. Unfortunately, the Darker Than Black anime was not a financially successful adaptation. That is why the third season of this anime was never planned, and the studio and the director moved on from this series.

Furthermore, the series was last on screens in 2010 with the four OVAs, so after 13 years, most of the fan base is not there anymore.

The Darker Than did make some profit. The average number of Blu-Ray sales is roughly 13,000 for the second season. That is pretty good, but there is only around 100 merchandise and just 30 figures after two seasons.

The series was less popular in Japan than in the West, and the Japanese audience was surprised even by the fact it got a second season. So I don’t believe there’s any chance for a season 3 of Darker Than Black.

In addition, Tensai Okamura, the director and original creator of the series, said in an interview in late 2017 that he is not working on any projects.

As a result, since the original creator has no plans for another season, there is no chance that Darker Than Black Season 3 will be announced.

Darker Than Black Season 3 Release Date

There is no official release date for Darker Than Black Season 3 because a third season was never confirmed, canceled, or announced, so there is no countdown, and a release date is never going to be announced because a third season will never get announced.

This is one of the anime sequels where I can confidently state that a new season and release date will never be announced.

There are simply too many factors working against this series to ever receive additional anime projects. The only hope I can see is a remake or reboot.

Even the official website hasn’t been updated in the past six years.

We will update this post if there is any news or a release date by some miracle for a new Darker Than Black anime project on the Darker Than Black official website.

If you lost hope that there would be a new Darker Than Black season, try reading the manga for the second season since it’s different from the anime.

Last Thoughts

An announcement for Season 3 of the Darker Than Black anime would bring joy to many anime fans, but it is unlikely to occur.

If you want more of Darker Than Black, I suggest reading the manga version of this story. It’s different from the second season of the anime.

If new information becomes available, we will update this article.
