Knights Of Sidonia Season 3 has been the talk of the town for the past five years. Fans are eagerly waiting for the third installment of this action-packed anime. There was a rumor two years back that the show is in its production stage. But the news that fans have been waiting for was never released. The good news is that the Polygon Pictures officially ordered the third season of the show in 2017.
Knights of Sidonia was the first anime to get an official license by Netflix. While the series is a not entirely Original Netflix but it did obtain the exclusive permission to stream the series worldwide. This series got a tremendous response from the fans as well as the critics.
The great relief for the fans is that the anime hasn’t been canceled and will be coming back for its next season. However, the production is taking a longer time than usual. Since it’s been five years, therefore, the fans are questioning about the return of this anime. The wait becomes painfully long for the fans. Moreover, the great news is that the anime will make its return sooner than later.
One more great thing is that the Producers have more than enough to create more than two seasons. The previous two seasons of this anime covered hardly 43 of the 78 chapters of the manga this anime is inspired from. Some timelines have also been changed. Almost half of the story is still remaining to be adapted into an anime. Hence there is a great possibility that Knights Of Sidonia Season 3 will follow 12-14 of these unused chapters.
Why is Knights Of Sidonia Season 3 Delayed?
Despite having more than enough source material the third season continuously facing delays. The main reason is that on 3 July 2019 the Netflix’s license to stream this worldwide was expired. And it is still doubtful that Netflix will renew it or not. Since this anime series is one of the Netflix Original series, therefore, some fans are anxious about the future of the series. If Netflix decides to renew the license of this series, the anime could be picked up by another streaming platform. If this happens, then it will be a good indication for Knights of Sidonia Season 3.
Knights Of Sidonia Season 3: Will The Ending Be Different From Manga?
There were a lot of fans who didn’t like the way the creators ended the manga of this series. Plots were left uncompleted, and the fans never got the answer to the questions like “who and what are the Guana?”
The tone of the series has also changed with time. The focus was shifted more to Nagate and his space harem side. And this disappointed the Sci-Fi anime fans because the tensed and action-packed stories were given less screen time. So there’s a good chance that the creators will not go with the manga and provide the fans with the happy ending they wanted.
