Is Blue Exorcist Season 3 finally happening?
Fans have been waiting for the third season of Blue Exorcist, and we might be getting a renewal. However, we are not sure when.
It has been five years since the last season was aired, and there has been no news from the series makers. Although the manga has been updated its readers with regular updates, the same cannot be said for anime.
However, several speculations and rumors say that the series will be back by 2022 this year.
Thus, it might be when the anime could return with the new season. To know more about the details, continue reading.
The Plot of Blue Exorcist
The series revolves around Rin Okumura, who, along with his younger twin Yukio Okumura, was raised by Father Shiro Fujimoto, an Exorcist.
Rin also wishes to become an Exorcist like his guardian to become stronger and defeat Satan. He enrolls at a prestigious exorcist cram school.
In one of the episodes, Rin learns that he and Yukio are sons of Satan. Witnessing Shiro dying to protect him, Rin draws the demon-slaying sword Kurikara, restraining his demonic powers.
After that happens, Rin gains demonic features like fangs and a tail and the power to ignite into blue flames that can destroy almost anything he touches.
Blue Exorcist Season 3: Release Date
As of now, there is no official announcement regarding the release of Blue Exorcist Season 3.
However, fans have been speculating the time of release based on the timeline of the first two seasons. However, there might be delays because of the COVID-19 Pandemic and lockdown rule being enforced.
We might have to wait for more months before seeing Blue Exorcist again on the screen.
Blue Exorcist Season 3: Plot
We all know anime adaptations usually take their sources from the released manga volumes.
Since Blue Exorcist is also an anime adaptation, we might expect season 3 to start where season 2 left off.
Possibly, the story will continue after the conclusion of the Kyoto arc of the story. The next in line is the Terror of the Kraken arc, and it will follow the events of the battle against the Impure King. As soon as the dust settles, the True Cross Academy teams will journey to the Atami Sunrise Beach.
Moreover, the manga has been around for a decade and has released 27 beloved Volumes under the Blue Exorcist.
If you are a fan of the series, you know that the 12-episode run of season 2 relied on about nine manga Volumes to tell its tale. And if we consider the 27 manga Volumes available, it gives the creators and writers sufficient content to adapt into Blue Exorcist Season 3.
Blue Exorcist Season 3: Cast and Characters
Since there is no official announcement yet regarding the release of Blue Exorcist Season 3, we do not have details on the official list of characters and cast to be part of the third installment of the series.
Although, here is a list of the characters who were a part of the first and second seasons:
