Since the second season finished airing in 2022, fans had been expecting a long wait for the third season. However, the official Twitter account confirmed Made in Abyss has been renewed for Season 3 on January 15, 2023.
Here’s everything you should know regarding the new season of Made in Abyss and when it will be released.
The anime series Made in Abyss, is based on a successful manga of the same name, first published in 2013. The Made in Abyss manga series is written and illustrated by Akihito Tsukushi.
Made in Abyss is a fantastic adventure mystery fantasy anime series loved by people worldwide, which follows Riko, daughter of the missing White Whistle Lyza the Annihilator who aspires to become like her mother and explore the Abyss.
The anime television series Made in Abyss has only had two seasons so far along with a movie called Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul all directed by Masayuki Kojima and animated by Studio Kinema Citrus.
There has been no announcement on whether the studio and director will return for the new season of Made in the Abyss.
The first 13-episode Made in Abyss television anime series premiered in Japan in July 2017. A second season aired in 2022. So when can we expect the Made in Abyss Season 3 to premiere?
When Will the Third Season of Made in Abyss Be Released?
As of September 2023, the studio has not officially announced a release date for Made in Abyss Season 3. The production for the new season has yet to begin, as there is no available source material. So all we know is the sequel is not coming anytime soon.
The release is still several years away, likely not before 2025/2026. Rest assured, as soon as the release date is known, we will let you know! We will be among the first to report on the airing date.
Good news! The author has expressed a goal to release the Made in Abyss manga faster, which would bring the release of the new season closer. We would be waiting for at least five years if he didn’t.
The Made in Abyss manga is notorious for slow release speed. That’s why we were waiting for the second season so long. And it looks like we are in for another long wait for Season 3 of Made in Abyss.
In the meantime, let’s delve into details about Made in Abyss Season 3. What can we expect from the next season?
I highly recommend checking out the Made in Abyss Manga. For many fans, the manga is the best way to continue the story in 2023.
What Can We Expect from Made in Abyss Season 3?
The plot of season three will center around Reg, Riko and Nanachi finally descending into the last layer of the Abyss.
This time they will bring Faputa with them, who should make traversing the seventh and last layer of the Abyss a little easier with her around.
The first season of the anime adapted manga volumes 1 to 4, the movie adapted volume 5, and season two adapted volumes 6 to 9.
Season 3 is expected to adapt manga volumes 10 to 13, – four books, following the pacing of the previous two seasons.
So, if you want to continue the story from where the anime ended and can’t wait, have a look at Made in Abyss manga volume 10 in English.
Made in Abyss has been confirmed for a third season, so this series is not over, the manga is still ongoing. However, the third season may be the last season. The series will likely end with the next two to three manga volumes.
Season 4 seems unlikely at this point. Though at least one more movie could be possible depending on the source material left after the third season. In any case, we should get a full adaptation, which is always nice to see!
