Here’s everything you need to know about the new season of Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World and its release date.
The anime series Re Zero, is based on a successful ongoing light novel of the same name, first published in 2012.
Tappei Nagatsuki wrote and Shin’ichirō Ōtsuka illustrated the Re Zero light novel series.
Re Zero is a series that combines isekai, time-travel, and dark fantasy genres, popular with fans worldwide. It follows Subaru, a teenager who is transported to a fantasy world after leaving a convenience store.

It is currently unknown whether the studio and director will return for the new season of Re Zero.
The first 25-episode Re Zero television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2016. A second season aired in 2021. So, when can we expect the Re Zero Season 3 to premiere?
Is There a Re Zero Season 3 Release Date?
Re Zero Season 3 has no official release date as of November 2023. However, it’s likely to be released in early 2025. This is based on the fact that there was a four-year gap between seasons 1 and 2, and the second season ended in 2021.
The release is still several years away, probably not before October 2024 or April 2025. 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.
A glimmer of hope! We can expect news about the third season of Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World at either the Kadokawa live stream in December 2023 (if there is one) or during Anime Japan in March 2024.
The Re Zero anime is notorious for studio and staff problems. That’s why we were waiting for the second season so long. It looks like we will have to wait another few years for Season 3 of Re Zero to air.
In the meantime, let’s delve into details about Re Zero Season 3. What can we expect from the next season?
Re Zero Season 3: Arc 5 and Arc 6 in Season 3?
Season three will adapt arcs five and six, which will take place in Priestella and the Pleiades Watchtower, respectively. Around 50 episodes would be required to adapt both arcs properly, so it is likely that season three will be a four-cour season. It is also possible that it will be split into two seasons, season three and season four.
The anime adaptation of Re Zero is pretty faithful to the light novel, adapting volumes 1 to 15 so far. Given that the light novel is ongoing, a few more anime seasons could be possible. Season 3 is expected to adapt volumes 16 to 20 of the light novel for Arc 5, and Arc 6 as well, which is volumes 21 to 25.
The series is currently on Arc 8 out of 12. Season 4, 5, or even more of Re Zero could happen as well, it will depend on how well this season sells. So far, it’s doing really well, so we should get a full adaptation, which is always nice to see! (Even if it will take 10 to 15 years)
If you can’t wait for the Re Zero Season 3, you can continue the story from where the anime ended by reading the light novel series in English. The light novel is even more immersive than the anime. Start from the last episode with Re Zero light novel volume 16 in English.
