Renewed? Boss Teased About Potential Release Date


While avid fans shed tears after saying goodbye to their favorite Classroom Of The Elite Season 2, the studio came up with another big announcement for Classroom Of The Elite Season 3. Well, the anime has already gained immense success throughout its two seasons, and now fans are clamoring for more. But it feels like their voice will soon be heard. Stay with us to know what made us say this.

Classroom Of The Elite is an adaptation of light novel series by Shogo Kinugasa under Shunsaku Tomose illustration. The light novel series was published from May 2015 to September 2019. Though it was a long ago when Shogo wrapped up the series, its manga and anime keep the hype alive. Soon in 2017, Studio Lerche came up with the first season of the anime TV adaptation, which has had two seasons so far. Now fans are waiting for the third season.

Classroom Of The Elite Season 3: Renewal Status!

Studio Lerche came up with the first season five years ago. Soon after its debut, the anime series touched a greater height. The hype its first season created is still incomparable. However, it took almost five years to return with the second season. Despite being the most-watched series on Crunchyroll, fans are a little anxious as they believe the third season will take even longer to return on the streaming platform.

Besides this, the anime received mixed reviews in both seasons. It received a 7.7 approval rating on IMDb from the global audience. While half of the global audience rated 7.9 stars on MyAnimeList, it would definitely increase the show’s rating when it reaches new anime lovers. Hence there’s a high chance of Classroom Of The Elite Season 3.

Will There Be Season 3?

The second season finale aired on September 6, 2022. Since then, avid fans have been waiting for the Classroom Of The Elite Season 3. Many wondered whether their favorite anime would return to their screen. But you don’t need to fret. This is because when the second season was in the works, Studio Lerche revealed that the third season had already been ordered. It was renewed before the second season could land on your screen. Hence it shows how much avid fans love the show.

Classroom Of The Elite Season 3: Will There Be More Seasons?

The anime adaptation is based on Shogo Kinugasa’s original light novel series of the same name. It has a total number of 11 volumes with an additional sequence of stories. Its first season covered three volumes, while the second covered almost five. So now only three volumes are left for the third season. Considering this possibility, it seems like the third season will be the show’s final season. However, if the studio plans to develop its own stories, there’s room for more seasons.

Will Classroom Of The Elite Come Up With A Sequel Film?

As mentioned above, Classroom Of The Elite has a light sequel novel called Classroom Of The Elite: Year 2. It consists of three marvelous stories. Considering the fans’ enthusiasm and love for the anime, the studio will soon decide to return with a sequel. There’s a chance that it could turn out as the sequel series. However, it has only three stories. So it won’t be easy for them to expand the series for more seasons. But no need to worry at all. This is because it’s highly possible that Classroom Of The Elite might return with a sequel film.

Classroom Of The Elite Season 3: Production Status!

While the first season wrapped up in 2017, the second season took five years to wrap up production. It lets fans assume that the third season will do the same. However, fans will be surprised to know that it’s already under production. Earlier this year, Studio Lerche confirmed they are working on the third season. Since then, neither the producers nor the studio revealed that production update. So the production status remains in limbo. But deeming that the third season started production earlier this year, there’s a chance that the production might have reached halfway. We will update this section as soon as we learn about the production details.
