Fans of the hit anime series “Classroom of the Elite” have been eagerly anticipating news about the release of the third season. With the second season airing almost a year ago during the summer of 2022, fans are curious to know when they can expect the continuation of this captivating story. Let’s dive into what we know so far about Classroom of the Elite Season 3.
Season 2 of “Classroom of the Elite” consisted of 13 episodes and was produced by Studio Lerche. It aired from July to September 2022, leaving fans wanting more. The anime has successfully adapted the first 7 volumes of the light novel series, culminating with the final episode adapting volume 7.5.
The light novel series, written by Shōgo Kinugasa and illustrated by Shunsaku Tomose, is an ongoing work with over 20 volumes available. Additionally, there are various short story collections accompanying the main series.
The first-year light novel spans 11 volumes and includes three short story collections (4.5, 7.5, and 11.5). Meanwhile, the second-year light novel is still ongoing and currently comprises 9 volumes and 1 short story collection.
With such a rich source material, fans have reason to be hopeful for a new season of the anime. The good news is that an official announcement for season 3 was made back in March 2022, even before the release of the second season.
On the official website, it was stated, “The production of the second and third seasons of the TV anime ‘Classroom of the Elite’ has been decided. The 2nd season will be broadcast from July 2022, and the 3rd season will be broadcast in 2023, and all first-year light novels will be animated.”
However, since the initial announcement, there has been a lack of new updates regarding season 3. Fans were hopeful that after the conclusion of the second season, additional information about the next installment would be revealed. Unfortunately, no trailers, visuals, or any other details have been released thus far.
The only confirmed information we have is that the third season of “Classroom of the Elite” will be released sometime in 2023, as mentioned in the March 2022 announcement.
As we near the end of Spring 2023, the summer anime season is approaching rapidly, commencing in July. Since it has already been officially confirmed that season 3 will be released in 2023, fans can speculate that it will either debut during the summer or fall of this year.
However, if season 3 were scheduled for a summer 2023 release, it is likely that confirmation would have been provided by now. Many other upcoming summer anime, such as “Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2,” “Mushoku Tensei Season 2,” “BLEACH: Thousand-Year Blood Part 2,” and “Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 3,” have already unveiled specific release dates, trailers, and other pertinent information.
In contrast, “Classroom of the Elite” season 3 has remained shrouded in mystery. Therefore, there is a high possibility that the season will premiere in Fall 2023, barring any unforeseen delays.
Nevertheless, this prediction remains speculative, and until an official confirmation regarding the exact release date is provided, fans will have to wait patiently for further updates.
For those unfamiliar with the series, “Classroom of the Elite” is based on a Japanese light novel series published from May 2015 to September 2019 under Media Factory’s MF Bunko J imprint. The popularity of the series led to the release of a sequel light novel series titled “Classroom of the Elite: Year 2” starting in January 2020.
To the delight of fans, both the first season and the second season of the anime can be streamed on Crunchyroll, the leading platform for anime enthusiasts.
As devoted followers of this captivating series, rest assured that we will continue to keep you informed of any official announcements and developments regarding “Classroom of the Elite” Season 3. Stay tuned for more news and prepare for another thrilling installment in the world of “Classroom of the Elite”!
