Anime is thriving today due to the genre’s availability of fascinating and visually appealing animated shows. For example, the film “Demon Slayer” has already smashed a few box office records.
In contrast, “Jujutsu Kaisen’s” blend of regular shonen action and the supernatural has arguably made it a must-watch series. We’d be foolish if we didn’t mention “Fire Force,” whose distinctive take on a squad of firemen and the notion of spontaneous combustion has contributed to the series’ well-deserved appeal.
Based on Atsushi Kubo’s manga “Soul Eater,” the anime follows Shinra Kusakabe, a third-generation pyrokinetic who can ignite his feet with fire.
Shinra teams up with another unit of pyrokinetic known as Special Fire Force Company 8 to fight with Infernals, humans who have spontaneously combusted and become living blazes.
The second season of “Fire Force” concluded in December 2020, making it one of the top five most-watched anime television shows on Amazon Prime Japan (Via Anime News Network).
Fans are undoubtedly eager for another season of the beloved show, so here’s what we know about Season 3 of “Fire Force.”
When will Fire Force Season 3 be released?
Season 3 of “Fire Force” was officially confirmed via the show’s official Twitter account on May 16, 2022. Unfortunately, no release date or production updates are available at this time.
We were curious to know whether the anime would be renewed for a third season for a long time, so we could hold onto our enthusiasm while we waited for Crunchyroll or Funimation to announce the release date.
With 2022 ending and no new information, “Fire Force” Season 3 will premiere in early 2023. The first two seasons of the anime aired in the summer, so we may wait around six months for new “Fire Force” episodes if they follow suit.
What’s the plot of Fire Force Season 3?
There is no solid storyline information for “Fire Force” Season 3. Because the anime has mainly followed the manga, we can anticipate what Shinra will be up to in Season 3.
Season 1 of the anime covers volumes 1–11 of the manga, while Season 2 covered the rest of volume 11 up to some chapters of volume 20. If the manga is at its conclusion, Season 3 might adapt volume 20 to the finish unless the anime series deviates into filler territoery like “Naruto” or “Bleach.”
The Season 2 conclusion foreshadows a larger future war between Company 8 and the Evangelists. Shinra was pushed in his training to reach a new point known as “The Press Of Death” to grow more vital to deal with the Company’s more lethal foes.
Meanwhile, the killing of Company 4’s Captain Hague in the season finale delivered a severe blow to the heroes. On the other hand, Shinra can create an Adolla Link, allowing him to see Hague’s dying moments.
Season 3 will likely pick up where Season 2 left off, with Company 8 teaming up with the Tokyo Empire to fight against the Evangelist’s strong troops.
Who is starring in Fire Force Season 3?
The official cast list for “Fire Force” Season 3 has yet to be revealed. Based on the continuity of the series’ first two seasons, we’re likely to see a primarily returning group of characters.
The only new characters were Ogun Montgomery, played by Makoto Furukawa (Japanese) and Zeno Robinson (English), and Scop, voiced by Kentaro Ito (Japanese) and Tyler Walker (English) (English). Shinra’s voice cast, which includes Gakuto Kajiwara (Japanese) and Derick Snow (English), should return (Via Anime News Network).
Season 3 should be animated by the same company, David Production, as the first two seasons. Tatsuma Minamikawa took over as director of “Fire Force” Season 2 instead of Yuki Yase. Minamikawa is expected to resume as director for season 3, along with Kazuhiro Miwa as a chief animator and Kenichiro Suehiro as a composer, unless otherwise specified.
