Classroom of the Elite Season 3 Plot: What to expect?
The exact plot details for the upcoming third season are under wraps or that might be the case if you haven’t read the light novel series and since we would not be putting down any spoilers here, we’d suggest you to read the novel if you’re impatient and can’t wait till the arrival of the season three.
As per reports by AnimeGeek, season two will cover up to volume 7 of the original light novel series. The LN series has so far completed 18 volumes in total. So there is enough source material for the creators to proceed with the anime series for three or more seasons.
Nevertheless, the official Twitter handle and the actors both verified during the showcase of the second season of Classroom of the Elite that the third season will completely adapt the whole Classroom Of The Elite: First Year story arc of the novel series.
The central team in charge of making Classroom Of The Elite season three anime series has not been revealed yet. Nonetheless, evaluating that both the second season and third season of Classroom of the Elite are being produced simultaneously it’s quite unlikely that there’ll be any crucial changes.
