Despite the popularity of Fire Force, Funimation still hasn’t announced a fixed date for a third season. In fact, the fans have been anticipating a new season to air within a year after the end of the first season. However, this hasn’t been the case.
While Season 2 premiered within a year after Season 1 ended, that doesn’t seem to be the situation with Season 3. The sales of Fire Force manga have been high and people are eagerly waiting to see Shinra back in action.
Though there is no set date for when a new season will air, Funimation has been promising new episodes every week for the past few months.
Fire Force Season 3: What We Know So Far
Given that the second season ended on December 12th, 2020, Funimation may already have announced a third season for the manga and anime series, Fire Force.
Furthermore, due to the pandemic affecting many anime series, Fire Force has faced backlash. However, despite this, the demand for great anime shows keeps increasing. So, Funimation may well announce a third season any time soon.
This is an interesting possibility, as Funimation has been consistently releasing high-quality anime shows for years now. If they do announce a third season, it would be an indicator that they feel there is still a high demand for their material.
The Plot of Season 3
For those who have not yet read the manga, Fire Force is a (sort of) anime following the story of the same name. It began airing in Japan on October 25, 2009 and ended on April 7, 2010. The story itself is based on the manga by Takeshi Obata.
The first season followed volume 1 until volume 10. The second season followed volume 11 until volume 20. This meant that while Fire Force Season 3 may continue this pattern, it would likely follow the manga’s storyline instead.
Meanwhile, the manga series “Attack on Titan” has only 32 volumes, meaning that the anime could end without any filler arcs if it decides to produce a third season.
Here is what we know so far about the third season of Fire Force. Shinra will complete Benimaru’s
(Company 7’s Captain) training, unlocking The Press of Death which would then lead to difficult circumstances for Company 8 as they are now known as traitors.
Shinra is also in possession of a secret document that would end the anime – something that we need to wait and see just how it turns out.
