We know that you have been desperately waiting for Kakegurui Season 3. Well, you must hold on to the expectations a little longer because the makers are taking their time with this one. The Kakegurui series is a popular psychological thriller show that is based around the themes of gambling. The original manga by Homura Kawamoto and Toru Naomura first came out in 2014. The manga is still up and running with a high selling rate.
Later on, it got an anime adaptation by Studio MAPPA in 2017. Now, after two consecutive successful seasons, fans are demanding a renewal of the third installment. Since 2019, it looks like that makers have gone into hibernation with this one. So, is the third season of Kakegurui coming anytime soon? Here is all you need to know.
Kakegurui Season 3: Renewal Status
This piece of information might be a little upsetting for many fans who have been desperately waiting for Kakegurui Season 3. However, neither MAPPA nor its production team has confirmed any detail regarding the renewal of the third season. However, they haven’t officially canceled the series either. Thus, there are still hopes that the show might be shelved for a while. We will be sure to update you as soon as the news of renewal is out. Until then, here are the things that will make you a little hopeful about the much-awaited third season.
Is There Enough Source Material?
The original text by Homura Kawamoto has more than 86 chapters in total. For now, we have seen quite some significant changes in the story that deviates from the source. Moreover, both the season finales of the first two seasons were original endings by Studio MAPPA. If we do not take into account the original plots, there is still enough source material that can become a part of the adaptation. Reports suggest there are enough volumes to culminate in at least two seasons after Kakegurui Season 3.
Moreover, if the studio wishes to opt for an original plot, they can also do so. This is because even the previous changes were happily accepted by fans without any backlash. Thus, it is only a matter of time before a new season comes out with brand-new arcs and characters.
