The second season of Beastars is currently streaming on Netflix for global audiences, and fans cannot help but wonder about Beastars Season 3. The story received much love and appreciation from Japanese audiences when it debuted back in October 2020. Whereas, it is now repeating history globally as well. With this success, the hopes of the third season are at an all-time high. So, is there any official announcement for the season renewal? Let’s find out.
Beastars is a popular animal-based crime story that follows a series of murders that two officers are investigating. Paru Itagaki is the original author of the story. Besides the TV show, the manga also has a separate fanbase for its unique storytelling style. From the availability of the source material to renewal status, we have it all covered for you! Thus, here is all you must know about Beastars Season 3.
Beastars Season 3: Renewal Status
As one can expect, Beastars Season 3 has not completed production just yet. The second installment just began streaming on Netflix on July 15, 2021. Earlier, the season was up for a release in early 2021. But due to the congested release schedule of Netflix, the project was slated for a summer release. And it was the pressure from Studio Orange that ultimately led to the release.
This urgency from the parent company might be a finger towards the fact that they are working on further installments. Judging by the popularity of the current season, it looks like the decision to renew it will not be difficult. We can expect more solid news as Season 2 of the anime ends its course.
Is There Enough Source Material?
If one is to answer this question plain and simple, yes, there is plenty for Beastars Season 3! The original Beastars manga by Paru Itagaki has 196 chapters in total. The inaugural season uses the first 48 chapters to adapt its 12 episodes. Moreover, the second season is allegedly using chapters 48-98. This means that there is still enough source material to culminate into two more seasons. Thus, fans can not only expect season 3, but they can also hype their hopes for a fourth installment.
Beastars Season 3: Release Date
For now, fans are only waiting to get a first glimpse of the sequel of Beastars. There are hopes that the makers will announce the release date of Beastars Season 3 as soon as the second season ends course by August 2021. If we go by speculations and probable production time, the new season might arrive next year by mid-2022. Moreover, fans can expect the third season to debut on Netflix, much like the former two.
