Blue Exorcist is one of the most popular and beloved anime shows in recent times. The gorgeous and dark dream show is based on Kazue Katou’s manga of the same name. The show was produced by A-1 pictures and is available on Netflix to stream. Fans enjoyed the first two seasons of the anime quite a bit and have been clamouring for a third season. However, is Blue Exorcist Season 3 coming out? When will it be released? Is there enough story to sustain a third season? In this post, we will find the answers to all these questions. Let’s get started.
Blue Exorcist Season 3: What we know so far
What is the story for Blue Exorcist Season 3?
The third season of the Blue Exorcist series will be no shorter than a hurricane where Rin and his teammates will be seen against a group of individuals, the Illuminati. These individuals follow the lord of light aka Lucifer and are determined to resurrect Satan to transport evil spirits and zombies to Assiah. In season 3, an important character of the Illuminati will be Sabotage Todou.
There will be another firecracker of an event that will take place this season. The Port of Hades will make an appearance for the first time in Season 3. This door will act as a gateway between the universe of evil presences and the people. This gate was designed by the Illuminati in the past, in an area where the Russian nuclear power plant once stood. However, because of the Exorcists, the Illuminati could not send and operate the gate.
The current Illuminati group is in fact trying to make this gate work so that Assiah and Gehenna can band together to become a lonely world; however, they must be reined in, as the result of this combination will be terrifying. What a pity! The only individuals who can stop this horror are Rin and her twin brother Yukoi.
Who will appear in Blue Exorcist Season 3?
If and when the third season for Blue Exorcist comes out, a lot of the previous cast members will definitely return. Here is the list of the characters on Blue Exorcist:
- Rin Okumura
- Yukio Okumura
- Shiemi Moriyama
- Ryuji Suguro
- Renzo Shima
- Konekomaru Miwa
- Izumo Kamiki
- Shura Kirigakure
- Shiro Fujimoto
- Igor Neugauss
- Arthur Auguste Angel
Just like most shows, a new season will definitely feature a cast of new characters also. A lot of times, older voice actors might not find time to appear in subsequent seasons and the voice actors of the same character are also changed between seasons at times. However, there is no guess from our end this time and the voice cast can see a lot of changes/no changes at all.
When will Blue Exorcist Season 3 be released?
The first season of Blue Exorcist was released in April 2011. At that time, after a huge gap in January 2017, season 2 of Blue Exorcist was aired and fans loved it all. In any case, some time has passed and there is still no news about the season of Exorcist Blue 3. However, since the creative organization has not abandoned or renewed the series for another season, we can anticipate a renewal in short order. There are a few reasons why we think and anticipate that the series should be renewed.
The basic reason is that there’s still a ton of fantastic manga material available for season 3. As a matter of fact, 25 volumes of the manga weren’t used for the first two seasons of Blue Exorcist so it’s very evident that people might still be able to see some great stories on the screen.
Also, considering how long it took the creative organization to release information about season 2 and then release it, it’s safe to assume they should do the same for season 3 of the Blue Exorcist. Furthermore, the series was recently added to Netflix, which gives all viewers the confidence that it will likely be renewed and released in the next few years, if not in 2021.
Blue Exorcist Season 3: Conclusion
Blue Exorcist has been a show which has taken a long town for its production and release. As a matter of fact, Blue Exorcist Season 2 took almost six years for production and release. Based on that, we can predict that Blue Exorcist Season 3 will also probably take a long time before it is available for the hungry fans to feast on. As of now, there is no specific announcement about any kind of release date for Blue Exorcist Season 3 but it is expected to come out sometime in 2022 as the pandemic continues to weaken with every passing day.
