Blending science fiction with the supernatural, the anime gave the viewers what they wanted and subsequently earned their love. But the viewers were left bewildered in a state of shock after the anime was supposedly left for dead after season 2. KonoSuba Season 3 was nowhere in sight, and no mention of it was ever made. That is until recently when the anime was supposedly renewed for a third season. So let us talk all about KonoSuba Season 3.

KonoSuba Season 3: About the Show
KonoSuba was released back in 2016, as an anime on the Tokyo MX network. The anime, which was based on the manga of the same series, written and illustrated by Natsume Akatsuki, was a hit among the public when it came out. The critic and public reviews were pouring in, and they were all warm and positive. The anime and the manga went to popular status in virtually no time. The manga particularly was very well received itself and went on to be continued, and garnered a huge fan base itself. The show, following in its footsteps, achieved similar popularity.
The show saw Kazuma being given a second chance at his new reality, as Aqua gave him the chance to travel to a parallel universe, different from his own, and to begin a new life. In his new world, Kazuma takes on a variety of challenges, and becomes a hero of his own making, with assistance from his close friend Aqua, who offered to bless him with all that he would need to be the hero that he was meant to be. While refusing her gift, he went on to do all that Aqua brought him to do and achieved a lot.

The Story Of The End
Following the success of the first season, the show was quickly renewed for a second one, which met with equal amounts of applause and love and was considered as one of its kind. But things quickly went south as the studio went silent after the release of the second season. With no official cancelation or renewal on the horizon, fans were kept in the blue as to what would happen next. Eventually, the studio went completely silent on the matter, and fans assumed that the show was over for good. This was particularly depressing given the way season 2 ended and raised expectations for season 3.
Added to this was the fact that the original manga was still being produced and sold, and there was a lot of content to cover for the anime. Which added fuel to the fire. People were now even more confused about the fate of the show, and for good reason. For a good long time, the studio abandoned the show, and the hype eventually died down. However, the creators surprised the world yet again when they dubbed the anime in English in 2020. This indicated that the studio was just not yet done with the anime, and now would be targeting a larger audience across the world. Which was great news for the fans.

The Return of KonoSuba Season 3
Then, recently, the showrunners officially announced that KonoSuba is going to be renewed for Season 3 and that our beloved characters would return. This quickly caused an uproar in the fans who never saw the announcement coming. It is not like we have not had hiatuses in the anime world before. In fact, it is more common in anime than in any other industry. But the way KonoSuba was left off was really upsetting for a lot of people and left things very open ended. So it was much more difficult to ascertain if it would ever return to the screen. And with the latest announcement, I’m glad that it did.
What the third season of the anime is going to entail is something that the writers have cleverly kept under wraps. It has been revealed that the production for the third season is going to begin soon. But other than that, the production team has kept mum on the matter. However, given the way season 2 ended, it is quite safe to say that season 3 will be picking up right where it left off, and will continue Kazuma’s journey through the realm. Those who have already read the manga would know what the show might entail in terms of the exact plot, so I recommend you to read that if you cannot wait.

KonoSuba Season 3: Release Date
Now, I’m sure that you are really happy to hear about the KonoSuba Season 3 announcement. However, that is all we really have for now. The showrunners haven’t yet announced a proper release date for the show, and would probably not share much in the coming months due to the early stages of the production. However, we do know that the anime is going to undergo production soon. Given that fact, I would estimate the potential release date for KonoSuba Season 3 to be sometime around late 2022, given the production cycle and the ongoing pandemic. Till then, it is going to be a long wait for fans of the show.
