Blue Exorcist is one of the most anticipated series that uses the original source to build an anime series without deviating a bit from the original content, making it even more organic. Dark fantasies and the mysteries engrossed inside them always make the best genre for fans who love dark stories in the shows.
Blue Exorcist is one of the most interesting dark fantasy anime television series that is based on a manga series from the same name. It was created and illustrated by Kazue Katou and was published for the first time on April 4, 2009. Blue Exorcist dark fantasy series became a favorite amongst all of the audience of Japan. It was then immediately picked up by A-1 pictures and was made into a television anime series.
The first season of Blue Exorcist came on-screen on April 17, 2011, and it immediately became popular amongst fans within a span of one year. After a few years, the show’s second season was announced, and it was premiered on January 7, 2017.
But now fans of Blue Exorcist are waiting to announce the third season for the show. Therefore, we have collected all the possible information about the show and here’s everything you know so far.
Release Date For Blue Exorcist Season 3
At present, there is no official information available on the release date for Blue Exorcist season 3. The second season of Blue Exorcist was released on January 7, 2017, and continued till march in the same year. After that, two original video animation episodes were released under the title Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga OVA on April 4, 2017, and October 4, 2017.
However, there is no news about the third season yet, but we can hope for a new season if we look at the ending of season 2. We can even expect the announcement for a third season this year anytime. It can also release sometime in January 2023 or as early as April 2022. All these speculated dates will come true only if the makers follow the schedule of two previous seasons. Also, it is currently unclear whether the COVID-19 situation will affect the new season’s release.
Character Expected To Reappear In Blue Exorcist Season 3
Tye Okumuras are surely going to return back to the show. We know that the show revolves around the son of Satan and the boy’s self adopted human half-brother Yukio. This human boy is also the youngest one who has passed the Exorcist qualification exam and says that he will be counted if the series moves forward.
Rin is also on his way to becoming the knight Meister, a title that will help him get better knowledge and skills. It adds him again to the further storyline. We will also get to see Renzo Shime in the new season of the series, as he is often seen with Konekomaru and Ryuji. He is one of the most important cats for season 3.
We hope to further see other characters in the show’s season three, including Shura Kirigakure and Izumo Kamiki. Shura Kirigakure is Rin’s guide and an upper first class Exorcist. This completely favors the return of her character. Because her guidance is quite needed and significant now for Rin while going against satan, on the other hand, Izumo Kamiki is one of the True Cross Academy’s Female students, actually one of the top students of the academy.
Expected Storyline Of The Third Season Of ‘Blue Exorcist’
When we talk of the show’s storyline, we know that there is plenty of material that is left out. Also, the left-out material is quiet enough to make a new season, Blue Exorcist season 3. Besides that, if the series continues to follow the Manga, then the show’s third season will show us rin and friends dealing with a new group called Illuminati. The Illuminati group is led by Lucifer, who is the king of light.
The main purpose behind the series is to resurrect Satan and unleash all the demons and zombies on the world. The ones who have read Manga would know that Sabutota Todou is a member of this organization. Season 3 will also provide us with the invention of the Gehenna Gate, which is a portal between the two worlds. The only people who had a chance of preventing the portal launch were the Exorcists.
According to the demons, Gehenna and Assiah were previously in a single world. Therefore, the Illuminati will unite the two worlds into a single whole world once again. Now, to accomplish this, makers will try to carry out various experiments. Also, Rin and his only twin brother can put a full stop to all of this nuisance.
Will The Makers Bring Blue Exorcist Season 3?
There are plenty of fans who are eagerly waiting to watch season 3 of the show. Also, we know that there are enough Manga volumes available for the writers to create a new season. But honestly, it’s all a matter of time and interest from the studios to take the initiative to create the series.
The author of the manga in a 2016 interview said: “I’m serialized in a monthly magazine and barely make it work, so I have a lot of respect for authors who do weekly serializations. They often sacrifice their health and their private lives to do it. It’s a job that only a chosen few who have the skill and the fortitude, both mental and physical, can do. I’m not one of them.”
Now, in the end, if she published 11 chapters in a year, it would mean that the ending of the show might come in 2023. This brings us to the conclusion that we will surely get a third installment of Blue Exorcist soon.
Let’s keep our hopes high and wait for the good news to come in 2022 or 2023. Till then, stay tuned to our website and get all the updates right here.
