To all anime freaks out there, we bring you great news! KonoSuba Season 3 is on the horizon.
On July 18, 2021, it was announced at a Livestream event that the anime will be back with the third season. ‘Yare, yare’— it’s finally happening!
The Japanese anime series KonoSuba, also in another title known as ‘Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o!’ is based on a popular light novel of the exact name published in the year 2013. It was composed by Natsume Akatsuki and Kurone Mishima as the illustrator.
The story follows a boy named Kazuma Satō, a shut-in NEET who died of a heart attack in the real world but was isekai’d and met a goddess named Aqua who promised to reincarnate him. In the isekai/fantasy realm with MMORPG settings, Kazuma along with Aqua forms a party that is later joined by Megumin and Darkness. Together they set out on a journey to win against the Demon King.
This anime series has two seasons so far and a movie called ‘KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! Legend of Crimson.’ The first season was released in January 2016 followed by the second season in January 2017.
Konosuba Season 3: Release Date
A statement was published on Twitter on July 18, 2021, but it did not have any specific details on whether the creators are working on the third season of KonoSuba or a spin-off/movie.
Fans of this anime series have been eagerly waiting for the arrival of season 3 but till now there’s no official announcement on when the beloved anime series’ third season will be released. We might have to wait for a little more as production started not too long ago as per the statement.
It was also reported that Studio Deen has been secretly working for a surprise release. Could it be KonoSuba season 3? If everything goes smoothly without any delays, the third season of KonoSuba will most likely arrive in early 2022.

KonoSuba Season 3: Plot details
Currently, the anime has covered volumes 1 to 4 as in the light novel while the movie covered vol. 5. If the anime adaptation has been following the story as in the light novel religiously, the third season may begin from vol. 6. For those who haven’t read the novel and don’t have the patience to wait for season 3 to release, I’d reckon you start reading from vol.6.
At the moment, the light novel has a total of 17 volumes published in Japan. As of 2021, KonoSuba’s light novel has come to an end. The story has officially concluded. Since the last two seasons covered two volumes each, we assume that KonoSuba Season 3 will cover vol. 6 and 7 and to cover the whole story it will take another five seasons or less if there’s a movie in between each season. But we’ll let the KonoSuba franchise decide on that one.
So, what do you think? Are you excited that one of your favourite anime series is coming sooner than you think? To watch the previous seasons, it is available on Netflix. Go watch now if you haven’t!
