Vinland saga Season 3
When will Vinland Saga Season 3 be released?
The MAPPA team has revealed that the anime Vinland Saga Season 3 will be introduced to the audience soon.
What is Vinland Saga?
Vinland Saga is a seinen manga with historical elements created by Yukimura Makoto. The series has been serialized since 2005 and is currently ongoing in the Afternoon magazine. Vinland Saga tells the story of Thorfinn, the son of one of the most famous Viking warriors, on his journey of revenge and unending battles.
In 2019, Wit Studio adapted Vinland Saga into an anime. Moving on to Season 2, the series was transferred to MAPPA. The change in studios did not significantly impact the quality of the show, and Vinland Saga continued to receive strong acclaim from the audience.
The anime will have a Season 3
Recently, Vinland Saga Season 2, consisting of 24 episodes, concluded. Although there was no announcement of Season 3 at the end of the series as expected, it appears that production for Vinland Saga 3 is already underway.
A member of the Vinland Saga production team has provided a “spoiler” about the next part of the anime. Specifically, Abiru Takahiko (animation director and character designer) posted the following tweet on his personal page:
“I greatly appreciate the staff for their ongoing efforts in the work until today.
I want to express my gratitude to fans worldwide for loving Vinland Saga. Thank you very much.
…Thorfinn’s journey will continue.”
The tweet was accompanied by an image of Vinland Saga, where the words “Vinland Saga” are emphasized with three bold strokes, implying that Vinland Saga Season 3 will be released soon. It is likely that MAPPA is organizing the production schedule for their projects, as an official announcement has not been made yet, but the team is actively preparing for the production.
Vinland Saga Season 3 Content
Vinland Saga Season 2 adapted the content from chapters 55 to 99 of the original manga. Moving on to Season 3, we will delve into a new story about the “exploration of the East.” The storyline will span from chapter 100 to chapter 166. Therefore, Season 3 is likely to consist of around 24 episodes.
Release Time for Vinland Saga Season 3
Based on MAPPA’s current projects and the expected number of episodes for Vinland Saga Season 3, Thorfinn’s story may continue around the end of 2024 to the beginning of 2025.
