Is there a Blue Exorcist Season 3 release date?
Blue Exorcist Season 3 was highly anticipated by fans, and it looks like we finally have some good news. After a six-year hiatus, the new season will be making its return in 2024. The new season launching this late doesn’t come as a surprise, given that the second season was also released six years (2017) after the first one, which came out in 2011.
Season 3 of Blue Exorcist, also known as the Shimane Illuminati Saga, was announced at the Aniplex Online Fest 2023. Both a teaser trailer and a first key visual were released, with the release window being January 2024. Fans can rest assured that their favorite anime series will be making its return with a brand new season and storyline very soon.
According to a report by Digital Spy, the third season will focus on volumes 10-15 (chapters 50-64) of the original manga, and will heavily revolve around Rin and Yukio’s friendship. However, there has been no confirmation of the exact release date and the number of episodes this season. So fans will have to wait a bit more for further updates.
Season 3 is expected to have all of the main voice cast, including Nobuhiko Okamoto (Rin), Jun Fukuyama (Yukio), Kana Hanazawa (Shiemi), Kazuya Nakai (Ryuji), Kōji Yusa (Renzo), Hiroshi Kamiya (Mephisto), and Keiji Fujiwara (Satan). Daisuke Yoshida is the director and Studio VOLN is in charge of animation.
