So far, Vinland Saga 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 Vinland Saga Season 3 and if yes, then when it will release?

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

The anime series Vinland Saga, known as ヴィンランド・サガ in Japanese, is based on a popular historical manga of the same name written by Makoto Yukimura. The first volume came out in 2005.

Vinland Saga is an epic adventure anime with Norse mythology elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Thorfinn, a fierce young boy who wants to avenge his father’s death, but he gets tricked by Askeladd into joining his band.

The anime television series Vinland Saga has only had two seasons released so far, directed by Shūhei Yabuta and animated by studio Wit, and MAPPA. After the first season, there was a studio change.

There is no confirmation on whether the studio or director will return for Vinland Saga Season 3.

The first 24-episode Vinland Saga television anime series premiered in Japan in July 2019. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Vinland Saga Season 3 Episode 1 or some sequel.

Will There Be Vinland Saga Season 3?

The prospects for a third season of Vinland Saga are promising, as the production team has demonstrated their commitment to the series through their dedication to creating the second season.

However, at present, there has been no official announcement made by Twin Engine regarding the future of the show.

Although the series is popular, it is not yet certain if there will be a season 3. Despite its popularity, the first season sold only 256 copies per Blu-ray. There are no numbers for season 2 yet, so it will be interesting to see if it sold better.

The manga has not been performing well either, with sales of less than 100,000 copies per volume. Additionally, the merchandise has not been doing well either. Relying solely on streaming revenue can be problematic.

Each season usually performs worse, so the future of the Vinland anime is uncertain, as there is no guarantee of a season 3, as is the case for other popular series. So when can fans expect some news?

Vinland Saga Season 3 News

Two to three years between each new two cour season is standard, so don’t expect news about a potential season 3 anytime soon. Well, it could get announced fast, but we would still be waiting years.

Also, so far, 26 Vinland Saga manga volumes are out in Japan. The author said that the series is close to ending. Most fans think there are three to four more volumes left.

Vinland Saga should have 4 seasons before it’s finished, so around 2030, this series should be fully adapted. Well, assuming it will actually get two more seasons, but I’m optimistic.

So far, volumes 1 to 8, and 9 to 14 got adapted for the first and second season of the Vinland Saga anime. So, if you want to continue the story from where the anime ended, have a look at Vinland Saga Manga volume 8 in English.

I highly recommend checking out the Vinland Saga Manga Box Set. The English manga is a two-in-one book edition.

Vinland Saga Season 3 Trailer

There is no trailer for the third season of Vinland Saga available. However, if one is ever released, it will be posted on the official Vinland Saga anime Twitter account and updated here. Here’s a trailer for the second season for now.

Last Thoughts

In conclusion, the announcement of the third season of Vinland Saga did not happen yet, so there is no release date. Vinland Saga Season 3 may happen since it’s so popular, but the sales aren’t looking that good.

The second season of Vinland Saga didn’t finish airing yet, so it will be interesting to compare it to the first season if it made more money. That should give us more clues about the future of this anime.
