KonoSuba Season 3: Everything we know so far

KonoSuba returns. After a long period of uncertainty, the KonoSuba Season 3 of the ludicrous fantasy series will be finally released.

For five years, the KonoSuba anime was on a TV hiatus. Although the movie with the nickname “Legend of Crimson” celebrated its premiere in the meantime, there was no trace of a continuation of the main plot so far. Only the rumor mill was simmering violently. At times, the fans wondered whether they could still expect a new season. Now we know: Yes, the KonoSuba Season 3 will be released.

In a livestream of Kadokawa’s YouTube channel, which included the voice actors of the characters Kazuma, Aqua, Megumin and Darkness, the production of a KonoSuba Season 3 was confirmed. It was also announced that the animation team had changed. From now on, Studio Drive will take the helm and replace Studio DEEN.

Yujiro Abe (Kaguya-sama) takes on the role of director, while Makoto Uezu returns as screenwriter. The character designs are once again by Koichi Kikuta. Also the line-up of the voice actors should not change so far.

To announce the new KonoSuba sequel, we were surprised with a colorful visual. The start date of the KonoSuba Season 3 is unfortunately still unknown. However, the producers revealed that they were working on a prequel series for the franchise at the same time. The new anime will feature the prequel novel KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World! and focus on the character Megumin.

The first two seasons of KonoSuba are currently available on Amazon Prime Video*. At the center of the plot is the young Kazuma Sato, who dies in a car accident. Well, at least not really, because to his surprise, he wakes up next to the goddess Aqua, who gives him the opportunity to be reborn in another world reminiscent of an online role-playing game. Together they set off to experience exciting adventures – even if they do not always go as planned.

Konosuba Season 3 Release Date

Since the Konosuba Season 3 was recently greenlit, we can expect it to be in production for at least 8-10 months. So, we might get Konosuba back on our screens with season 3 sometime in 2023.

Choosing to start a new life, Kazuma is quickly tasked with defeating a Demon King who is terrorizing villages. But before he goes, he can choose one item of any kind to aid him in his quest, and the future hero selects Aqua. But Kazuma has made a grave mistake Aqua is completely useless!

Unfortunately, their troubles don’t end here; it turns out that living in such a world is far different from how it plays out in a game. Instead of going on a thrilling adventure, the duo must first work to pay for their living expenses. Indeed, their misfortunes have only just begun!
