Diabolik Lovers Season 3: Renewal Status!
This horror anime series is not an adaptation of any manga or light novel series. The makers got their source material from a visual novel (a fictional interactive game). The blend of horror and romance got successful in receiving a great response from the fans. However, the debut installment of the anime failed to impress the critics. Zexcs Studios still made a profit. Therefore they renewed it for the second season despite all the negative reviews.
The second season of the anime also premiered after its debut. It also received a great response and made some profit for the makers. However, it again failed to impress the critics. But unlike the first time, the creators didn’t renew it again. It has been five years, and the fans of this show are still waiting for a green signal from the makers.
Will The Anime Ever Return?
Most of the anime series was only made to promote its source material. Diabolik Lovers was no different. It was also made with the sole purpose of promoting its source material. As long as the makers have something to promote, the chances for the return of the anime are alive. And the great thing is the interactive video game of the series, which is still in the run.
The franchise launched a new game every two years. They released the last game in March 2019. According to this pattern, the new game might release in 2021. Therefore there is a great chance that the makers will renew Diabolik Lovers Season 3 before the release of the seventh game.
