While the popularity of Fire Force has risen exponentially, Funimation still hasn’t announced a fixed date for a third season. Moreover, Season 2 premiered within a year after Season 1 ended. However, this doesn’t seem to be the situation with Season 3. At the same time, the fandom has been expecting Fire Force Season 3 to bring some more sci-fi action.
Nevertheless, the sales of Fire Force manga have been top of the charts. With the anime gaining such love, the enthusiasts eagerly wait to view Shinra back in action. Hence, here are all the details we have about the third season.
Fire Force Season 3: Everything We Know So Far
Since the second season ended on December 12th, 2020, it’s almost been a year since we’ve heard any announcement regarding a third season. Even so, the hope that Funimation announces a Fire Force Season 3 any day now remains. Moreover, the sales of the manga and the demand for next season indeed compels Funimation. Indubitably, the pandemic has already affected the release date of many anime series. Hence, Fire Force has also faced backlash.
Nonetheless, the ongoing demand for great anime keeps increasing. Thus, we can surely expect a third season any time soon.
The Plot of Season 3
The Fire Force anime directly follows the manga storyline. On the one hand, the first season depicted the storyline from volume 1 to midway 11. On the other hand, the second one continued the story from the 11th volume to the beginning of the 20th one. Hence, Fire Force Season may continue this pattern. However, since anime are infamous for filler episodes, season 3 could hold its track.
Nevertheless, the manga has only 32 volumes. Thus, the anime could end with its third season of production without any filler arcs.
Fire Force Season 3 will continue the storyline after Season 2. Shinra would complete Benimaru’s (Company 7’s Captain) training, unlocking The Press of Death. Moreover, things would turn difficult for Company 8 as now they are termed as traitors. While Season 2 concluded with a sad note (Hague’s Death), the third one may provide an end to the anime when Shinra acquired redemption for all the fallen comrades.
