1. Release Date
Ah! My Goddess Season 3 has not been announced as of now. The anime ended back in 2011 and hasn’t returned since. If the series does return, it should return sometime in 2023.
At the time of Season 2’s release, the original manga was still ongoing, and hence the producers had to wait for more material for creating another season. However, now that the manga is complete, we should receive updates on Season 3 soon. Maybe it’s too late for a third season now, and the only way to revive the anime is a remake.
2. What To Expect From Season 3
Season 2 of Ah! My Goddess ended at volume 31, chapter 195. Season 3 would resume the story from chapter 196 onwards. There are 48 volumes in total, and there isn’t enough material to make a 24-episode season; thus, Season 3 might get only 11 or 12 episodes.
In Season 2, Belldandy and Keiichi are reunited but face another threat. Fortunately, everything gets resolved, and the finale ends when Keiichi becomes vocal about his love for the Goddess. The ‘doki-doki’ elements explode as the audience craves for another season.
Season 3 would be the final season where we would see more lovey-dovey moments between our favorite couple, which might lead to something more permanent and long-term, perhaps a marriage.
