The long-awaited comeback of the beloved KonoSuba anime series has finally been announced, with season 3 set to premiere in the fall of 2015.
KonoSuba is still one of the most popular and cherished series for innumerable anime lovers all around the world, despite the second season-ending more than five years ago on March 16th, 2017.
It’s safe to say that few anime series boast a cast as instantly recognizable as KonoSuba’s, with Kazuma, Aqua, and the rest of the gang being among the most well-known faces in the industry.
It’s very uncommon for anime fans to worry about a show’s cancellation during long hiatuses between seasons, even if they’re used to it. Thanks to today’s anime gods, KonoSuba season 3 has finally been announced!
Which Cast Will Return in KonoSuba Season 3?
The voice performers from the first two seasons are likely to return for a third season. Sora Amamiya, Ai Kayano, and Rie Takahashi provided the voices for Aqua, Darkness, and Megumin, respectively, while Jun Fukushima provided the voice for Kazuma.
The third season of “KonoSuba” may not have as well-defined a cast as the original.
Studio Deen is claimed to have animated the first two seasons of the series. The animation for the film was handled by J.C. Staff. As long as the film’s performance is considered satisfactory by the show’s producers, JCS may be asked to animate Season 3.
A return to the cast and crew for Takaomi Kanasaki, Makoto Uezu, and Masato Koda is highly likely to occur. At least two seasons and a film have been credited to all three actors.

What Will Be the Storyline of KonoSuba Season 3?
Season 3 of “KonoSuba” has yet to be officially described, but the light novels that serve as the series’ inspiration allow us to make educated estimates about what may happen. Since the beginning of production, “KonoSuba” has stayed true to the storylines of the light novels.
After a total of 17 volumes, “KonoSuba’s” anime offers an impressive breadth of story components.
A light book series was utilized to create the first two seasons of “KonoSuba,” and the third and fourth seasons of that series were used to create that season. Because the film was based on volume 5, it appeared to be a continuation of seasons 1 and 2.
Megumin’s homeland is invaded by the Demon King’s general, Sylvia. A more hazardous form of Sylvia could be created by combining her with two other generals, but Kazuma was able to overcome this.
This season’s storyline will revolve around Kazuma and his group’s encounter with The Crown after defeating the Demon King in Volume 6. Kazuma manages to gain a little escape from his group, despite the meeting with a royalty going bad.
A developing romance between Kazuma and Megumin is a major plot point. Consequently, a more in-depth examination of this subject will be included in Season 3.
When Will KonoSuba Season 3 be Released?
KonoSuba Season 3 was formally confirmed at a Japanese special program event, which was streamed live on the KADOKAWAanime YouTube page, on May 28th.
A spin-off anime from the light novel series “An Explosion on This Wonderful World” will also be produced, in addition to the news about season 3.
No matter how much excitement there was when news of a third season was first announced, in retrospect, the series’ eventual return was virtually certain due to the show’s global acclaim and easy access to the source material.
Natsume Akatsuki’s manga has been reworked into five complete volumes between the two seasons of the anime series and the release of the film.
After 17 light novels and 15 manga volumes have been published in Japan by the end of May 2022, it’s wonderful news that the most current volume was released on May 9th, 2022! As a result, there is enough material for at least four more seasons of anime and several more theatrical films!
The release date is still not confirmed but according to our estimations, it will release in early 2023.

Has the Filming for the Anime Series Started?
There is already some groundwork in place for Season 3 of KonoSuba since the movie has been out for a long time. KonoSuba Season 3 is yet another example of a studio changing studios for the movie, however, the primary personnel from the first two seasons were still involved, along with J.C. Staff.
As a result, it is the core staff that is the most important aspect. When it comes to working with both studios, the director of the popular anime KonoSuba has been a contractor, but has also been working on other projects.
KonoSuba Season 3 presumably won’t premiere until at least 2023 at the earliest, since we now know that the July 2021 announcement was regarding the third season.
Anime productions can take years to complete, and as recently as 2017, many companies were revealing that they had projects slated for 2020. As a result of poor animator wages, the entire Japanese animation industry is experiencing growing pains.
Many anime studios are overbooked and unable to fulfill orders due to a lack of staff. In the wake of the worldwide coronavirus outbreak, a growing number of Japanese studios have begun to outsource work to Chinese and Korean firms.
