As of today, the series has a total of two seasons and a large fan following. Viewers are currently awaiting the third season.
DanMachi Season 3: Renewal & Production Details
The first season of the famous anime adaptation debuted back in January 2015. J.C. Staff took quite a while to greenlight its sequel. The second installment episodes came around years later in July 2019. While fans were expected another long gap, the studio surprised them with the renewal of DanMachi Season 3. The news came out one day before the Season 2 finale.
Productions for the new season began soon after. As of now, Is It Wrong To Try To Pick Up Girls In A Dungeon? Season 2 is currently under the works.
Is This The Last Season?
The DanMachi light novel series consists of a total of fifteen volumes. The release of Volume 16 has been delayed. Besides, the LN volume may take a while to hit the market. The first season of the anime adaptation consumed the first five books. However, Season 2 covered less than three of them, i.e. Volume 6 and 7, alongside some chapters of Volume 8.
One of the main reasons behind the difference is the number of pages in each book. The first five volumes ranged from 208 to 288 pages each. On the other hand, Volume 6 and 7 had 272 and 384, respectively, alongside a section of the 400 pages long Volume 8. Looking at the number of pages of the next few books, DanMachi Season 3 may consume the plot of Volume 9 through 11.
Whereas, the remaining chapters of Volume 8 have been covered in an OVA episode of the second season. The episode came out on January 29, 2020. Hence, J.C. Staff still has several LN volumes to cover in future installments. The anime has been a successful production for the studio. Considering that there’s enough source material, the studio may not miss out on another profit. However, the future of the series depends upon the performance of DanMachi Season 3.
