The light book Re Zero by Tappei Nagatsuki has been adapted into a successful and critically acclaimed anime series. The show chronicles the adventures of Subaru Natsuki, a young man who finds out in a parallel universe that he can reverse the passage of time by dying—a power he dubs “Return by Death”—and uses it to get back home.
An intricate and fascinating plot, a rich and memorable cast of characters, and breathtaking and emotional animation all contribute to the show’s examination of fate, pain, and love. It has been called “one of the most successful and influential isekai anime of all time” by both reviewers and viewers.
When will season three of Re Zero premiere, and what can viewers expect? Here, based on what we know so far, we’ll fill you in on when you can expect to see Season 3 of Re:Zero.
When Did Re Zero Season 2 End and How Many Episodes Did It Have?
The second season of Re Zero, also titled Re Zero: Starting Life in Another World, consisted of two halves, each containing 13 episodes. Part one aired from July 8, 2020, to September 30, 2020, and Part two ran from January 6, 2021, to March 24, 2021.
The season covered the fourth arc of the light novel, which stretched from volumes 10 to 15. Season one centered on Subaru’s adventures in the Sanctuary and the Witch Cult, where he and his comrades faced up against the likes of the Witch of Greed, the Archbishops of Sin, and the Great Rabbit.
In addition to introducing and revealing new characters like Echidna, Garfiel, and Satella, the season focused on the growth and backstory of established favorites like Emilia, Beatrice, Roswaal, and Otto.
Is Re Zero Season 3 Confirmed and When Will It Release?
There is no other information available on the release window for the third season beyond that; but, if we had to speculate, we may expect it to come sometime in the early years of 2024.
The final book of the Re Zero light novel was released on March 25, 2021, yet the series is still running. So far, the anime has adapted around 60% of the light novel (out of a total of 25 volumes and 6 arcs), leaving 10 volumes and 2 arcs to go. So there’s content for at least another season, perhaps more.
The Re Zero anime has been a huge hit with audiences all around the world. Numerous prizes and recognitions have been bestowed upon the anime for its excellence. The anime has also improved the sales and popularity of the light novel, which has sold over 9 million copies worldwide.
As a result, the anime studio and the light book publisher have a great deal to gain from producing additional seasons. There were numerous loose ends and questions left unanswered by the end of Season 2 of Re Zero. Subaru and his comrades had just escaped the Sanctuary after defeating the Witch Cult when the season ended on a cliffhanger when they were ambushed by an unknown individual who identified himself as the Witch of Envy.
The season introduced new characters and perils including the Witch of Vainglory, the Archbishops of Gluttony and Wrath, and the Great Mabeast War, and hinted what the future held for the major protagonists. Therefore, there is a need for a thorough and satisfactory continuation of the anime, as well as a great deal of potential for additional seasons.
These indications and suggestions suggest that a third season of Re Zero is possible, or at the very least, that the anime has not concluded. Several considerations, including the production timetable, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the availability of the anime team and cast, make it impossible to pinpoint a precise release date for Re Zero season 3.
However, we may make an educated guess based on the prior seasons and the present situation of the anime business. Season 3 of Re Zero will premiere in 2022, most likely in the second half of that year.
What Can Fans Expect From Re Zero Season 3?
Season 3 of Re Zero, should it be produced, would most likely adapt the light novel’s fifth arc, which takes place between volumes 16 and 21. Subaru and his companions face a new and greater enemy, the Witch Cult’s invasion on the Kingdom of Lugnica, in this arc, which is also known as the Stars That Engrave History arc and the Corridor of Memories arc.
Subaru and his comrades learn the secrets and mysteries of the world, the witches, and themselves in the Truth of Zero arc, while the Royal Selection arc features a competition between Emilia and four other candidates for the crown of the kingdom. New characters like Priscilla, Anastasia, Crusch, Felt, Reinhard, Julius, and Al are developed and introduced in this section of the plot.
There are six volumes in the story, which is roughly two courses or seasons, thus if there is a third season of Re Zero, it will probably include between twenty-four and twenty-six episodes. Since the staff and cast have been consistent and loyal to the light book and the fans, they are likely to return for the new season.
White Fox is a well regarded animation studio, thus we can expect this season to maintain the same high standard set by past installments. Since composer Kenichiro Suehiro and bands Konomi Suzuki and Myth & Roid have received high praise for their work on the series’ OSTs, it’s probable that they will return for another season.
