As anticipation builds, ‘Fire Force Season 3’ is ready to ignite the anime world. With the production underway and a potential 2024 release on the horizon, here’s a detailed look at what to expect from the upcoming season, including its release date, character lineup, and viewing platforms.
When is the Release Date?
The announcement of Fire Force Season 3 first emerged in 2022. Fast forward to May 2023, production was confirmed to have commenced, as per the show’s Japanese Twitter account. While a specific release date remains unknown, indicators suggest a potential premiere in 2024.
This speculation stems from the release pattern of the first two seasons, which debuted consecutively in the summers of 2019 and 2020. Factors such as the pandemic and the busy schedule of David Production, the studio behind the first two seasons, have been hinted at as possible reasons for the delay.
Production Studio Shift?
Initially helmed by David Production, known for their work on ‘Cells At Work!!’ and ‘Strike Witches: Road To Berlin,’ a leak suggested a potential studio shift. Rumors indicated that Studio Shaft might take the reins for Season 3. However, this change remains unconfirmed.
Season 3 Characters and Plot
While the complete roster for Season 3 has not been officially unveiled, the return of most voice actors from the previous seasons is expected, including Gakuto Kajiwara as Shinra, Kazuya Nakai as Captain Obi, and Kenichi Suzumura as Takehisa. Their English counterparts, such as Derick Snow (Shinra) and Jeremy Inman (Captain Obi), are also anticipated to reprise their roles.
The Evangelist looms as the principal antagonist, with the White Clad serving as her enforcers. The narrative arc for Season 3 remains speculative, but it is likely to pick up from the cliffhanger of Season 2, hinting at a showdown between Company 8 and the Evangelist.
Seasons 1 and 2 encompassed the narrative of Volumes 1 to 20 of the manga. Given this progression, Season 3 might explore the remaining chapters, potentially concluding the animated saga.
Where to Watch Fire Force?
The first two seasons of Fire Force have found a home on Crunchyroll, accessible to fans in the United States and various international regions. Season 3 is set to follow suit, premiering on the same platform.
For fans wanting more, a mobile game titled ‘Fire Force: Enbu no Sho’ was also announced, featuring a theme song by Mrs. Green Apple.
