Renewal Status & Last Update
2021 was the last time when fans heard about The Promised Neverland Season 3. And that, too, was under the speculations of the next release. The final episode of the sequel aired on March 26, 2021. And since that time, Studio CloverWorks has taken a step back from releasing any updates for the next season. All in all, the third season of the show has not been renewed. But are there any chances of seeing the new season? Let’s make an analysis.
Season 2 Reception
The biggest villain in The Promised Neverland Season 2 was the season itself. The construction of the anime was such that it did not even stand up to the bare minimum expectations of the sequel. And even the ratings of the show went down by an incredible number the next season. The IMDb rating fell to 2-3 stars on each of the episodes. The overall rating of the season was below 5 stars. This is enough to tell us that the viewers were not happy with the adaptation.
And this is one of the reasons why no one even wishes to acknowledge the existence of this season. But for the fans who wish to revisit the story in The Promised Neverland Season 3, there is no need to fret as there is little hope for the new season. Some strong groups have even started a petition on Change.org, demanding a remake of the show. More than five thousand signatures have already been registered on the page.
Will There Be A Remake?
The only hope to get a new season is by eyeing a remake of the sequel. According to the chronological line-up of the plot from the manga, an entire arc was skipped in the anime. As a result of this, a lot of manga fans were disappointed in the work that was served to them. And for the anime-only fans, the direction and pacing of the second season were a blunder on their own. Thus, the decision a remake is something that will serve both these fanbases.
