In 2019, the high-quality anime series Fire Force, also known as Enen no Shouboutai, was released and quickly became a global phenomenon. The manga series is just as popular as the anime, despite the fact that the latter has more name recognition.
As of the year 2022, more than 20 million copies of Atsushi Okubo’s manga series had been sold. David Production is responsible for animating the 2019 anime that made waves with its second season.
The studio’s name is familiar to us because of shows like Cells at Work! Funimation and Crunchyroll both feature the anime thanks to their license. It has also gone global thanks to Hulu TV’s airing of the show.
From July 4, 2020, through December 12, 2020, the second season of the anime will be released. They are now wondering if there will be a season three. So, has season three already been ordered?
Fire Force Season 3 Release Date
There has been no official word on when Season 3 of “Fire Force” will premiere or if it will even be renewed.
Nonetheless, there is cause to assume that another season of the series should be in development and an announcement should be coming soon, as the show’s popularity has translated into considerable sales of the manga.
According to the Official “Fire Force” Anime Twitter, the manga had sold over 15 million copies by the end of April. With that kind of money coming in, it’s evident that people want to see more of the show.
According to Atsushi Kubo, the manga will end shortly, which could put off the creation of a new season of animation. Okubo predicted in an interview with Monsters And Critics that the manga would end around volume 30.
Moreover, Okubo announced in the 23rd volume of the manga that the tale was reached its final chapter and that “Fire Force” would be his last manga, as reported by Anime News Network. With 28 volumes out thus far, it may take some time to nail out when the manga will conclude.
Season 3 could come out as late as 2021, although at this point we’re more likely to see an official announcement before the end of the year, with a release date sometime in 2022.
The Season 3 Fire Force Main Cast
There has not been a finalized cast list released for Season 3 of “Fire Force.” It’s possible that the majority of the original cast will return as the show’s setting has remained mostly unchanged through the first two seasons.
Makoto Furukawa (in Japanese) and Zeno Robinson (in English) join the cast to lend their voices to newcomer Ogun Montgomery. Through Anime News Network, we may expect to hear the voices of Shinra’s original Japanese voice actor, Gakuto Kajiwara, and English voice actor, Derick Snow.
Like the first two seasons, Season 3 should have been animated by the same studio, David Production. As Season 2 of “Fire Force” progressed, Tatsuma Minamikawa took over for Yuki Yase as showrunner.
Unless otherwise stated, Season 3 will see the return of Minamikawa in the role of chief, along with Kazuhiro Miwa and Kenichiro Suehiro in the roles of chief artist and writer, respectively.
The storyline for the Third Season of Fire Force
In the 198th year of the solar age, specialized fire brigades in Tokyo are fighting the so-called “Infernal,” a phenomenon in which people spontaneously catch fire.
Later generations were able to control the flames while still keeping the human form, in contrast to the Infernal, which symbolized normal burning in earlier eras.
Shinra Kusakabe, better known by her mononym, enlists in the Special Fire Brigade Company 8 founded by other flame managers in an effort to put an end to any and all Infernal occurrences she encounters.
Shira begins to piece together the events leading up to the inexplicable fire that killed her family 12 years ago when a group with an Infernal appeared.
