Despite KonoSuba ending its second season more than three years ago, it is still one of the most loved and loved series among so many.
KonoSuba is the most famous anime character from any franchise.
Fans of anime can be used to having long hiatus’ between seasons. However, it can become a problem if there is no return.
The franchise’s future has been announced, but was it season 3?
Studio Deen is yet to confirm season 3 of KonoSuba. But, fans can still look forward to the return of the beloved anime, especially with the recent announcement.
While season 3 has not been confirmed officially, the anime will likely be resurrected due to its global popularity as well as the availability of source material.
The KonoSuba manga story has been adapted to Volume 5 by the series as well as the movie. The good news? As of July 2021, 13 volumes had been released in Japan.
KonoSuba has become almost a cult favorite anime title in recent years. MyAnimeList says season 1 has a score of 8.14/10 and season 2, 8.3/10. They both have 1.6 million votes.
Konosuba season 3 might be coming ????????????????

KonoSuba staff are openly expressing interest in season 3.
Two voice actors from anime disclosed that a KonoSuba project was underway in 2017. While many believed that this was about season 3 at the time, it was referring to the 2019 film ‘Crimson Legend”.
Kadokawa’s producer said that season 3 would have a good chance if the movie performed well. Since then, however, there has been a suspicious silence about the future of the popular anime series…until now!

When Could Konosuba Season 3 Release?
Although no official release date has been announced for season 3, HITC predicts the return of the fan-favorite series by April 2022.
While some fans believed that Aqua, Darkness, Kazuma, and Megumin would be returning in late-2021 as a possibility, the lack of information about season 3 was a major problem.
Fans were filled with hope when they heard that a new anime title is being developed. They are hopeful that the project will be completed within the next 12 mois.
The announcement confirmed the existence of a new title, but it did not indicate when it would be released.
Monsters & Critics remarked, “The groundwork may have already begun for KonoSuba Season 3…It can be argued that Studio DEEN was liberated by switching animation studios.”
This article is being updated as soon information becomes available.

Konosuba Season 3: Plot
If renewed, season 3 will follow the Crimson Legend movie. This movie picked up where season 2 left off.
The first two seasons were adapted from two volumes of the manga by KonoSuba, while the entire manga was covered in the movie.
Therefore, the third season will likely cover everything in volumes 6 to 7, but it could change depending on whether this is a movie or a series return.
