Will There Be Vinland Saga Season 3? (Updated 2023)

Is Vinland Saga season 3 confirmed? Vinland Saga season 3 has yet to be officially confirmed, so there is no release date for the third season of this anime series.

The question is, will there be a season 3 of Vinland Saga? And when is Vinland Saga Season 3 coming out?

Here is everything we know so far regarding whether Vinland Saga anime season 3 will happen and the potential release date.

The anime series Vinland Saga, known as Vinrando Saga in Japanese, is based on a successful historical manga series.

Makoto Yukimura writes and illustrates the Vinland Saga manga series.

Vinland Saga is a fantastic epic adventure anime series with Norse mythology elements and plenty of Vikings, so it’s no wonder that fans worldwide are asking if Vinland Saga will have a season 3.

The story follows Thorfinn, a fierce young boy, the main protagonist of this anime series.

He wants to avenge his father’s death, but he gets tricked by Askeladd into joining his band, hoping to defeat him in a fair fight since he is responsible for what happened to his father.

How many seasons of Vinland Saga are there? There are two seasons of the Vinland Saga anime. There is no season 3 of Vinland Saga yet.

The second season of Vinland Saga is airing in January 2023, and it should be fantastic. Most of the staff from season one is working on the second season, and let’s hope they will also work on the third season.

The first season of the Vinland Saga anime, with 24 episodes, premiered in Japan in July 2019. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still hoping Vinland Saga will get a Season 3.

Over the last eight years, I’ve looked at hundreds of anime sequels. A few examples are:

So continue reading if you want to learn if Vinland Saga will return for a new season and the likely Vinland Saga Season 3 release date.

Will There Be A Season 3 Of Vinland Saga?

There will be Vinland Saga Season 3. Season 3 of Vinland Saga is almost certainly going to get announced. So no, the Vinland Saga anime is not over, and this series will continue with more seasons.

The manga and profit information below will quickly show why I believe the third season will likely get confirmed.

I say likely because, as you will see from the profit, it’s not 100%, like Tokyo Revengers Season 3 or No Game No Life Season 2 is.

After it’s clear why a new season has a good chance of getting confirmed, I’ll tell you when Vinland Saga season 3 will most likely be announced. So you’ll also find out when the third season will be released.

Vinland Saga Season 3 Manga

The first season of the Vinland Saga anime used volumes 1 to 8 and adapted the War arc. The second one will likely use volumes 9 to 14 and adapt the whole Slave arc.

So far, 26 Vinland Saga manga volumes are out in Japan, meaning that 12 books are left for adaptation for the third season.

So, the source material is no problem for the third season and even for Vinland Saga Season 4. Season 3 will adapt Eastern Expedition Arc, so volumes 15 to 23.

However, if you want to start reading the manga from where the anime ended and continue the Vinland Saga story after season 2, start at volume 8.

The English manga is a two-in-one book edition, so get the Vinland Saga Manga Volume 8 in English. That is volumes 14 and 15.

Profitability For Season 3

The Blu-Ray sales are super bad for Vinland Saga. From what I found, the first season of Vinland Saga sold only 256 copies per disk. That’s weird.

A good number is around 2-3,000 copies per disk. I’m interested in what happened to the Blu-Ray sales. I wonder how much will the second season sell. Still, Blu-Ray sales aren’t that important anymore.

Streaming on NetflixAmazonDisney, and Crunchyroll is where the money is for anime in 2023. Popular series such as Vinland Saga make big bucks from streaming.

Vinland Saga manga is doing fine, with volume 26 selling around 80,000 copies, which is fine, but it’s not a big hit.

The Vinland Saga series has around 7-8,000,000 copies in print in Japan. Not an official number, just an estimation since it has 5,5 million at volume 24.

It’s also interesting, but from the numbers, it doesn’t look like there was any big boost for the magna sales from season one, so I wonder if season two will help more.

As for Vinland Saga merchandise, three figurines and 50 pieces of merch got made for this series. This is pretty sad as well. It should be at least 10-15 figurines and 200 merch after one season.

The Vinland saga series does not make a lot of money. It most certainly got season 2 due to Amazon streaming money, and it most likely sells well manga in the west.

That was enough for profit to make Vinland Saga season 2, but will it be enough for Vinland Saga season 3?

Maybe it will join Noragami Season 3, that never happened because the second season wasn’t profitable enough.

That’s why I said likely season 3 will happen because we first need to see if season 2 will sell better, but I feel good about the chances of season three.

Now let’s look at Vinland Saga Season 3 release date.

Vinland Saga Season 3 Release Date

The Vinland Saga season 3 announcement should be in 2023, or more likely in 2024, and the third season will most likely come out at the earliest in 2025.

Two to three years between each new two cour season is normal, so don’t expect the next season to come out before 2025. I don’t see any way a third season could air in 2024.

At least if you want quality, and I believe most people don’t mind waiting a year extra if it means they will get a fantastic season with great animation. So far, there is nothing to complain about with this adaptation.

Vinland Saga should have 4 seasons before it’s finished, so around 2028 this series will be fully adapted. Well, assuming it will actually get two more seasons, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t.

The only concern I have is how little more it seems to make, but we will see after the second season.

Hopefully, this article was helpful. Check out if there will be sequels like Mieruko-Chan Season 2, 86 Season 2, or Made in Abyss Season 3.

I’ll update this page if any news about the third season’s release date is announced on the official Vinland Saga Twitter account.

Last Thoughts

Now you know if there will be Vinland Saga Season 3, and let’s hope that we will get a Vinland Saga season 4 Release Date after it as well so we can hava this series fully adapted into anime.
