Kuromukuro is by far one of the best original anime series of the decade. However, it’s been a while since its last episode aired, and fans are still waiting for Kuromukuro Season 3. Unfortunately, some rumors emerged last year stating the cancellation of the popular series. Were those rumors true? Can fans save the anime? Here’s everything you need to know.
Back in 2016, P.A. Works produced the 26-episode anime on the occasion of its 15th anniversary. Kuromukuro turned out to be an instant hit and soon became a fan-favorite. Later on, Netflix acquired the rights for its worldwide distribution. The streamer aired the first season in two parts, which viewers consider as two seasons now. Hence, fans are now waiting for the studio to announce a third outing of the anime.
Will ‘Kuromukuro Season 3’ Ever Come Out?
Ever since the anime debuted, followers are constantly questioning the release of a third season. Unfortunately, despite its popularity, the studio is yet to order ‘Kuromukuro Season 3.’ However, there’s still hope for the animated series. There have been plenty of animes in history that have been revived after years. Hence, fans must remain patient as a Season 3 renewal may soon arrive at the door.
Although it’s important to notice that Kuromukuro is an original series. Thus, there is no source material (manga or light novel series) that the studio can use. The writers of the mecha anime will have to generate a brand-new storyline to create episodes. Hence, P.A. Works may not announce a new season until they have a definite script.
Did Netflix Cancel The Anime?
Viewers were expecting a renewal of the anime soon after it began airing on Netflix. However, some rumors created chaos claiming that the streamer was slitting ‘Kuromukuro Season 3.’ None of these rumors turned out to be true as there was no official report of the cancelation was found.
In fact, as a matter of fact, Netflix does not have any role in the renewal or cancelation of the show. Only the studio, P.A. Works, can decide whether to continue the anime or not, and they haven’t made any formal confirmation either. Hence, there’s still hope for ‘Kuromukuro Season 3.’
Can Fans Save The Anime?
Fans around the globe believe that Kuromukuro is an underappreciated anime. Besides, they demand another season of the show as they do not like the ending and want more from the story. Hence, a while ago, a group of followers began a petition that can save Kuromukuro Season 3 from cancelation. This petition can be signed by viewers from all around the world that wish to watch more of the stunning anime.
In the past, fans have saved several animes and TV shows from cancelation. Due to the high demand, their respective studios decide to give another chance to the series. On the other hand, some of these shows and animes are picked up by different production studios that are interested in continuing the story. Hence, if a large number of people come in to sign the petition, they can save Kuromukuro as well.
When Will ‘Kuromukuro Season 3’ Release?
Due to the lack of a renewal, it’s hard to say if the anime will go on floors anytime soon. However, chances suggest that Kuromukuro Season 3 may not take much time to come back. Once we get a green flag, the mecha anime may head straight into productions. Yet, it’s still hard to expect a new episode anytime sooner than 2021 or 2022.
