Blue Exorcist Season 3 is being awaited eagerly by fans. The manga Blue Exorcist by Kazue Kato has been adapted into an anime series. The adventures of Satan’s offspring, Rin Okumura and his twin brother Yukio, are chronicled in this famed series. Yukio became an exorcist to shield his brother Rin from the demons’ abilities. Together, they enrol in the exorcism programme at True Cross Academy and take on the forces of darkness.
The anime has already broadcast two seasons. Season one premiered in 2011, and it had a total of 25 episodes. Season 2 premiered in 2017, and it has 12 episodes. Nine volumes of the manga are included. The plot centres around Rin and his companions as they attempted to stop the Impure King from destroying Kyoto.
Blue Exorcist has sold over 30 million copies as of May 2023. The anime series has been lauded by fans and critics alike. The first season ran from April to October 2011 and was followed by a film in December 2012. The second season aired in January–March 2017, six years after the first.
How did Blue Exorcist Season 2 Conclude?
In the second season of The Blue Exorcist, Rin and his comrades finally managed to vanquish the Impure King and rescue Kyoto. Even Rin’s blue flames were within his control. At the conclusion of the season, it was hinted that the Illuminati, led by Satan’s son Lucifer, was lurking in the shadows, ready to strike.
Is Blue Exorcist Season 3 renewed or cancelled?
Fans would be delighted to know that Blue Exorcist Season 3 had already been announced during Jump Festa 2023. Unfortunately, there is still a dearth of information about the exact release date. Indications and speculation point to Season 3 of Blue Exorcist continuing the storyline established in the manga rather than serving as a prequel or sequel.
There is sufficient source material to adapt the manga, which currently contains over 130 chapters. The Illuminati arc is the most likely to be adopted next since it introduces Lucifer and his attempts to restore Satan. So expect the third season to be full of twists and turns.
Blue Exorcist Season 3 Release Date
As of November 2022, 28 volumes of Kazue Kato’s manga series have been published. The Kyoto Saga portion of the manga was collected from volumes 1–17. There are still eleven volumes to be animated, which might keep the show going for at least another season.
A third season of Blue Exorcist would take at least two years to produce if A-1 Pictures decided to create it and if there was enough manga material to work with. Therefore, the most probable premiere window for Blue Exorcist Season 3 would be late 2023 or early 2024. The series would be released on Crunchyroll, Netflix and Hulu.
