So, what does the latest announcement bring in for us? Will there be a delay in production? When is the new season coming out?

The following sections talk about the first renewal announcement, updates coming forth that, the availability of source material, and the plot of season 3. As for the release date, you will find that information at the bottom of the entire article.
Classroom Of The Elite Season 3: First Announcement!
Right as the second season came to an end on September 26, 2022, the entire internet was lit up with the news of Classroom Of The Elite Season 3. No trailer or plot detail was released to mention the renewal of the new season. It was the plain announcement that also gave away the premiere slate of the outing. Since then, no update has been out. Even the studio Lerche has been silent on the matter. Does this suggest a delay in production? Only time will give away the answer to this.
Season 3 Expectations
The overall reception of the last season was far better than the last one. Thus, the hopes are high for the content of the new one as well. So, the reception numbers of season 2 turned out to be higher than the last one. Fans score the show a good 7.7 stars on IMDb. As for MyAnimeList, the score of the show is as high as 8.1 stars out of ten. More than 200K people have shared their reviews for the show on MAL. This itself shows the popularity of the season.
But now that Classroom Of The Elite Season 3 has been renewed, the one complaint that many fans might have is the pacing and direction of the new season. For the anime-only fans, the season was a treat to watch. For those of the readers who had been following the outing for the longest time, this was quite a stretch in many ways.
Frequent omissions in the plot, changes in the plot, and removal of depth in some acts were some of the major changes that everyone was talking about. Some of these changes were seen in the new season. But not everything has been fixed thus far. The arrival of Season 2 was a hint that the makers are willing to make changes. Thus, there is a chance that fans would see a season that is closer to manga than any of the last two.
Manga Compared To Anime
Classroom of the Elite remains to be one of the most popular Psychological Thriller manga stories to have come out. Written by Shogo Kunigasa, Shunsaku Tomose is the illustrator of the piece. Media Factory had been publishing the outing in the MF Bunko J platform for the longest time. It ran from May 2015 until September 2019. Eleven complete volumes and three short story collections made their way to the internet in this time.
So far, the first two seasons of the Classroom Of The Elite ended up using the first seven volumes as sources. This means that the last of the four volumes remain for Classroom Of The Elite Season 3, assuring the fans that more than enough source material is present to quench the third season. If not, then the season might as well end the story on the tenth volume, leaving room for the three short stories to get an adaptation for the fourth season!
What To Expect Next?
Opening the plot with the eighth volume, this outing shall take a look at the ending of the first year for these students. The First Year Arc comes to an end with the finale of Season 2. And now, Classroom Of The Elite Season 3 eyes the Mayor Arc. The season will commence with the bigger question about the future of Suzune and Kiyotaka. The mess in the last season suggested that there is not a certainly bright future for the two of them.
However, the chances of them talking once again are high. In addition to this, all the students will be posed with a new special task, named the Mixed Training Camp. Here, boys and girls will be split into two equal groups. The idea was to expel the existing leader in the team so as to bring out the best in the teammates. This way, the usual planning, and plotting shall commence once again!
