Will There Be Re:Zero Season 3? (Updated in 2021)

So far, Re:Zero 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 Re:Zero 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 Re:Zero and when it will be released.

The anime series Re:Zero, known as Ri:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu in Japanese, is based on a successful light novel of the same name that was first published in 2014. The Re:Zero light novel series is written by Tappei Nagatsuki and illustrated by Shin’ichirō Ōtsuka.

Re:Zero is a fantastic isekai anime series with psychological-time-travel elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Natsuki Subaru, a hikikomori gamer with an ability that he calls Return by Death that allows him to go back in time when he dies.

The anime television series Re:Zero has had two seasons so far along with two OVAs all directed by Masaharu Watanabe and animated by Studio White Fox. There is no word on whether the studio or director will be returning for a Re:Zero s3.

The first 25-episode Re:Zero television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2016. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Re:Zero Season 3 Episode 1 or some sort of sequel.

Will there be Re:Zero Season 3?

Re:Zero Season 3 will almost certainly happen. I’d estimate there’s a 99 percent chance that the third season of Re:Zero will be announced next year. There are two simple reasons why another season of this series is just a matter of when, not if, it will happen.

The first is that this anime series is extremely profitable. The first season sold over 12,000 copies per blu-ray, and the second around 5,000, which is fantastic. The light novels are also consistently in the top five best-selling light novels in Japan. There is also a lot of merchandise and figurines for this franchise, and the mobile game is doing great as well.

The second reason is that there is still a lot of content to adapt. There are now 27 volumes available in Japan, with only 15 having been adapted thus far. From what is now available, two additional two-cour seasons can be animated. So there’s no reason why a third season of Re:Zero shouldn’t happen.

Re:Zero Season 3 Release Date

There is no official release date for Re:Zero Season 3 because the third season was never confirmed, canceled, or announced, so there is no countdown, but it’s just a matter of time before we get the official release date for it because season 3 of Re:Zero will happen.

Most likely, the third season of Re:Zero will be announced during Anime Japan 2022, with an April 1, 2023 release date. The second season of Re:Zero was set to premiere on April 1, 2020 (Subaru’s birthday) and conclude on September 23, 2020 (Emilia’s birthday). It wouldn’t surprise me if they decided to do something similar for the third season.

We will update this post if there is any news or a release date for Re:Zero announced in 2022 on the Re:Zero official Twitter account. If you can’t wait for a new Re:Zero season to continue the story, you can start reading the light novel from volume 16 since the anime covered volumes 1 to 15.

Re:Zero Trailer

There is currently no trailer for Re:Zero Season 3 or Season 4, but we will post it here if it becomes available. Here is a trailer for the Frozen Bonds OVA, which you should watch because it’s a canon story about Emilia that happens before the events of the first season.

Last Thoughts On Re:Zero Season 3

Many anime fans would be thrilled if Re:Zero anime Season 3 was announced, so let’s hope it happens next year. I believe it’s pretty much guaranteed that a new season of Re:Zero will be announced in the next one to two years.
