Is the series renewed for a third season?

Fire Force has not yet been renewed for a third season. However, this is normal for an anime series whose second season finale is in December 2020. There is no notice of cancellation yet. When some parameters are evaluated, we can comment on whether the series will be renewed for a third season. The most important of these parameters are source material adequacy and popularity.

Manga Status

Anime often use manga series as source material. Fire Force is a manga adaptation like most anime. The manga by Atsushi Ōkubo has been published in Weekly Shōnen Magazine along with many successful manga series. The manga series, which started to be published on September 23, 2015, is still ongoing today. However, we have come to the end of this manga series. Atsushi announced that he would complete the Fire Force manga series, and this will be the last manga series. But is there enough source material for a third season of the anime?

So far, 27 volumes and 246 chapters have been published for manga. The second season of the series covers approximately 19 volumes. In this case, we can say that the series has enough resources for a third season. However, if the series is renewed for a new season, the third season will be the final season.

The popularity of the anime

Another important factor behind a new season confirmation is popularity. Popularity, views, and financial reasons are directly interrelated. Fire Force is an above-average anime with its ratings. It is also a popular anime that has managed to attract attention to the platforms where it is published. The popularity score of the series, according to our metrics, is 94.1%, and this score is sufficient for renewal.

Fire Force Season 3 release date

Although there is no renewal approval in line with all these evaluations, we think that the series will have a third season. The average production time is one year. There is exactly one year between the first two seasons of the series, and possibly the third season will start airing in the summer of 2021.

What happened in season 2, and what is next?

Even though season 2 of Fire Force finished to air in 2020 December, fans are already uneasy about the next season’s plot. Since Fire Force creator Atsushi Ōkubo declared that the manga is coming to the end and Fire Force will be his final work, it is not certain what the manga’s future is. However, this doesn’t lessen the excitement for the events of season 3!

The last-aired episodes of Season 2 are covering the Chinese Peninsula arc, where Shinra finds out more and more about the Evangelist. Once this arc is completed, the Holy Sol Temple arc will probably be resolved in the other half of Season 2. According to the manga, Hajima Industries arc follows the events of the Holy Sol Temple. In Hajima Industries, we will be seeing more of Nataku Son. At the beginning of this arc, Shinra and Licht discover Hajima’s experimental subjects’ inhuman treatment. The two decide to take action to save Nataku from the barbarous situation he is in. However, they will have to find where Nataku is hidden first since the company claims he is kept in a different place.

To rescue Nataku and all the other children from the atrocious conditions, Shinra has to share his info of the Adolla Burst and be a part of a battle. Here, we will be introduced to a new character, Kurono, who will be Shinra’s opponent in this experimental battle. The battle between the two challenges Nataku’s powers, and he becomes uncontrollable. With that, Licht tries to help Shinra break away from this battle and go rescue Nataku. However, Kurono gets in the way, and Company 8 cannot help because they are faced with another opponent, Puppeteer. With Licht under a death threat and Shinra challenged by the powerful Kurono, Season 3 will probably end in a cliffhanger!

Is there a released trailer for season 3?

The second season of the series is just finishing, and it is too early to see a trailer for the third season. It is possible to see some fan-made trailers, but it is not possible to see an official new season trailer before a season 3 renewal.
