Re Zero Season 3 has yet to get confirmed in 2022. There is no release date for the third season of this anime series.

Will there be Re Zero Season 3? When is season 3 coming out? These are questions we will answer about the next season in this post.

You will learn if Re Zero anime season 3 will happen or if this anime series is over and finished. We will look at the new season’s likely release date as well.

But first, quick essential information.

The anime series Re Zero, known as Re:ゼロ in Japanese, is one of the best isekai anime series with psychological and time-travel elements.

The main protagonist of this series is Natsuki Subaru. He finds himself teleported into a fantasy world, and after arriving, he tries to help a half-elf, Emilia.

The Re Zero anime series is based on a light novel. In 2022, the series is still ongoing. The first volume of the light novel came out 8 years ago.

The author of Re Zero is Tappei Nagatsuki. He is also the author of the Vivy series, which has an anime.

So far, Re Zero has two seasons and two OVAs from 2018 and 2019. Both the OVA are canon, and you should watch them. So no Re Zero s3 yet.

The first season of the anime television series Re Zero premiered in 2016 with 25 episodes. Six years later, fans are still asking for a new season.

So what happened to Season 3? Will it ever happen, and what is the Re Zero Season 3 release date? Let’s answer that now.

Re Zero Season 3 Key Visual

Will There Be Re Zero Season 3?

There will be Re Zero Season 3. Re Zero s3 is likely in production in 2022, and we should get the official announcement this year.

Season 3 could get announced with the new Isekai Quartet movie or at MF Bunko Festival, Crunchyroll Expo, or a new year stream on the Kadokawa YouTube channel.

In the worst case, the confirmation will be during Anime Japan in 2023.

The third season of the Re Zero anime will get confirmed within the next 6 to 12 months.

The light novel and profit information below will show you why Season 3 will happen.

I used the same information to predict hundreds of other anime sequels, for example, Isekai sequels such as Saga Of Tanya The Evil Season 2 and Mushoku Tensei Season 2.

Both got new seasons.

Re Zero season 3 Light Novel

The first season of the Re Zero anime used volumes 1 to 9 and adapted arcs 1 to 3. The second one used volumes 10 to 15 and adapted arc 4.

So far, 29 Re Zero light novel volumes are out in Japan, meaning that 14 books are ready for adaptation for the third season.

So, the source material is no problem for Re Zero Season 3 and even for Season 4. Season 3 will adapt arc 5, so volumes 16 to 20.

To continue the story from where the second season ended, check out Re Zero light novel volume 16 in English.

Re Zero Profitability For Season 3

The Blu-Ray sales are great for Re Zero. There was a 60% drop from season to season, but people don’t buy Blu-Rays as much as they used to, so the decline is okay.

The first season of Re Zero sold 12,000 copies per disk. The second season sold 5,000 copies, but Blu-Ray sales aren’t that important in 2022.

Streaming on Netflix and Crunchyroll is where the money is for anime these days. Popular series such as Re Zero make big bucks from streaming.

Re Zero light novel is doing well, with volume 29 selling 30,000 copies.

Re Zero series has 11,000,000 copies in print in Japan. It’s among the top 15 most popular light novel series ever, at least by copies sold.

Since the anime, this series has been in the top ten best-selling light novel series every year.

As for Re Zero merchandise, 640 figurines and 3,650 pieces of merch got made for this series.

That’s insane. Less than 1% of anime franchises get more. There is plenty of cool stuff made for Re Zero.

Re Zero makes a ton of money and profit from the light novel, streaming, and merch. So Re Zero s3 is only a matter of time.

Now let’s look at Re Zero Season 3 release date.

Re Zero Season 3 Release Date

Re Zero Season 3 Release Date

Re Zero season 3 release date should be in 2023, and the third season will most likely come out in mid-to-late 2023, but even early 2024 is possible.

So we can join One Punch Man Season 3 and Goblin Slayer Season 2 fans in waiting until 2023 for the third season to be released.

After a new season gets confirmed, the release date is 6 to 9 months later.

Re Zero Starting Life in Another World Season 3 will get confirmed this year, so mid-to-late 2023 is when Re Zero Season 3 is likely coming out.

Season 3 didn’t come out sooner because of studio White Fox.

White Fox lost employees, including Tsunaki Yoshikawa, the animation producer who worked on both seasons of Re Zero.

We can agree that season two looked worse than season one. For Season 3 to shine, White Fox needs to nail the fights with fantastic animation.

Arc 5 has more action than seasons one and two. Let’s hope White Fox can find enough new stuff to do Season 3 justice.

I will update this post when any news on the release date of the third season gets released on the official Re Zero Twitter account.

Re Zero Season 3 Story

Re Zero is a fantastic isekai anime series with psychological and time-travel elements.

The anime source material is a successful light novel.

Tappei Nagatsuki wrote the series, but Shin’ichirō Ōtsuka illustrated it.

The main protagonist of this anime series is Subaru Natsuki.

Re Zero story follows Subaru Natsuki, a teenager who finds himself in a fantasy world. After arriving, he tries to help a half-elf, Emilia.

That doesn’t work out for him. He gets killed and revived hours before that.

how many seasons are there?

Re Zero has two seasons.

The first season of Re Zero, animated by studio White Fox and directed by Masaharu Watanabe, had 25 episodes and aired in 2016.

The second season of Re Zero, animated by studio White Fox and directed by Masaharu Watanabe, had 25 episodes and aired in 2020/2021 as a split cour.

Re Zero has two OVAs as well. The first OVA, Memory Snow, takes place around episodes 11 and 12. It’s more of a slice-of-life comedy episode.

The second OVA, The Frozen Bond, is a prequel and focuses on Emilia and Puck.
