Blue Exorcist Season 3 – Is the Anime Show Returning?

Blue Exorcist Season 3

Just the name of this anime series sounds extreme and horror-filled and while both of that is true; Blue Exorcist is one of those shows that you simply can’t brush to the side. After two successful seasons, the audience now wants updates about the third one.

If you have yet to watch the first two seasons, let us give you a brief overview. The show follows a world where demons and humans coexist and follows the story of Rin Okumura, the son of Satan. In the series, Rin and Yukio (his twin brother) are exorcists.

This article will take you through all the details about Blue Exorcist Season 3, its release date, and the expected plot.

When is Blue Exorcist Season 3 Releasing?

Lo and behold because we have some good news for the viewers. According to official information, Blue Exorcist Season 3 is returning in January 2024, so the wait isn’t a lot long now.

We only have the month and year of release at this point and don’t have any further details regarding the release date precisely. However, we are sure that as we near the release date, a trailer will be released and a confirmed date will be unveiled as well.

Until then, we can rejoice in the fact that the third season of this anime series is only three months away. What we’d recommend you do in the meantime is binge-watch the first two seasons. Since it is a continuation-style anime series, it means that you will need to watch the first two seasons to know what’s going to happen in the third one.

So, while you are at it, be sure to binge-watch the first two seasons before the third season comes out.

What can we expect from Blue Exorcist Season 3?

The third season of Blue Exorcist will adapt volumes 10-15 of the original manga, which is known as the Shimane Illuminati arc.

So, what can you expect? In this arc, we will witness Rin and Yukio investigating mysterious exorcist deaths. This leads them to Shimane Illuminati and they find out a lot of hidden secrets about this mysterious world and how it has the potential to change the order of the world as well.

There are a lot of things left to unfold in the new season, so we’d recommend that you hold tight until the release.
