Predictions for the Season 3 Premiere of Fire Force
Fans were excited to hear that the anime will be returning for a third season, but there was no information on when Season 3 of Fire Force would be available. Based on the release dates of previous seasons and known facts about Fire Force’s company, David Productions, we can make some informed conclusions. Season 1 was revealed in November 2018 and launched in July 2019, while Season 2 will be disclosed in December 2019 and premiere in July 2020, both after a 7- to 8-month animation cycle.
Since anime seasons typically run for 26 episodes, some fans may have speculated that the next season will premiere in April 2022. Of course, the hectic pace at David Productions is to blame for the lack of an official update on Season 3. Strike Witches: Road to Berlin, 2.43: Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team, and Cells at Work!! have all been in development at the company for quite some time. since the end of Season 2 of Fire Force in 2020.
Meanwhile, the studio is well into production on a 52-episode adaptation of Urusei Yatsura that will run over the course of four seasons beginning later this year. Assuming for the time being that Fire Force is David Production’s top priority, we may expect the debut of the third season to occur in either October 2022 (in the best case scenario) or January 2023 (in the more realistic scenario).
New Mobile Game, “Fire Force,” to be Unveiled
Parallel to the start of Season 3 development, a new mobile game for the Fire Force franchise was also released. Since this new game is still in its infancy, a placeholder name like “Fire Force Flame Dance” is quite acceptable. The official Japanese site for Fire Force Flame Dance describes the game as “free to play fundamentally,” meaning that players will be able to pay for the game with virtual products.
After a series of leaks over the previous month, it was finally announced that Fire Force will be returning for a third season. Amazing anime has a worldwide fanbase that loves nothing more than to like, share, and debate rumours and spoilers about their favourite series.
Discussions about leaks tend to happen on social media, particularly Twitter, where both real spoilers and fake news may spread rapidly to followers all over the world.
The leaker’s assertions that work on the Fire Force anime has resumed have been confirmed by the Japanese animation studio responsible for the show.
The Third Season of Fire Force Has Been Confirmed
As of May 17th, it was confirmed that Fire Force would return for a third season. Both the Japanese Twitter feed and the English website state that production has begun on Season 3. Nonetheless, owing to a series of leaks over the past month, anime fans have been very confident in the imminence of this revelation for some time. According to the trustworthy Twitter leaker and insider SugoiLITE, “‘Fire Force’ Enen no Shouboutai TV Anime Season 3 is in development,” on April 29. The good news was that a return for Fire Force was likely regardless of these factors, as renewals for anime are often based on two factors: popularity and source material.
You don’t have to agree that Fire Force is insanely popular just because we say so. Out of 890,000 total users, Fire Force has an 83% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a 4.1/5 rating on Crunchyroll, and a 7.69/10 and 7.78/10 rating, respectively, on MyAnimeList.
Despite the fact that these numbers don’t say much about Fire Force’s performance in Japan, which is likely more important in renewals than global success, they do hint that the anime was successful enough to warrant a third season.
The next step is the anime’s source materials, which are enough for a third season. According to Anime Geek (formerly Monsters & Critics), the anime was adapted up to chapter 174 of volume 20 of the manga. The good news is that the series was completed earlier this year in Japan after a spectacular six years of serialisation, during which time all 304 chapters were distributed across 34 volumes. There is enough material for one more full season of the anime Fire Force, and potentially two if the manga content can be expanded out. Each season has adapted around 10 volumes of the manga.
