Code Geass is a popular Japanese anime series whose two seasons were released more than ten years ago. The series gained a lot of popularity at the time of its release and almost created a cult fandom among anime and manga fans.
The love for the series is not dead yet. After the Code Geass: Lelouch of Resurrection movie was released in 2019, the movie renewed the hope of fans to get a third season for the anime series after fourteen years.
Will there be a Code Geass Season 3?
Code Geass was broadcast in Japan on MBS in 2006-2007. The sequel of the anime was aired in 2008. The show was praised for its solid storyline and impeccable animation. The anime was also later adapted into manga and other graphic novels that showed alternate realities to the one the original series was based on. Bandai Reality licensed its English version in 2007 and aired on Adult Swim.
While, the Code Geass season 3 has not been announced yet, but Code Geass is getting a new movie which is titled Code Geass: Z of the Recapture.
Code Geass Season 3: What will be the plot
The story takes place in an alternate universe where the world is divided into three superpowers: The Holy British Empire (America), the Chinese Federation (Asia) and the European Union (Europe and Africa).
Code Geass’s third part would be a sequel of its 2019 film- Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection. Though the plot details remain unknown currently. The series and movies both followed the theme of alternate universes. So, this is quite predictable that the upcoming season of the anime would be based on alternate timelines as well. Now, we are a bit unsure about the part of Lelouch in the television series, however, there is a possibility that the show would explore the characters’ background stories, how they became the people we know them, and more.
Code Geass “Giassu” in Japanese (Geass) meaning the power of God.
Code Geass Season 3 Release Date
As the world is plunged into a bloody war, Lelouch must sacrifice himself for peace. However, in the 2019 film, the plot is based on a different reality where Lelouch is still alive. Fans therefore anticipated a season 3 set in an alternate reality. However, the filmmakers have denied any plans for the third episode of the Code Geass series, although they have not officially cancelled the series either. So there is still a glimmer of hope for a third season.
Code Geass is produced by studio Sunrise. Which is also known for producing Cowboy Bebop, Gintama, Daily Lives of High School Boys, InuYasha, Accel World and the Gundam Series.
Now studio Sunrise has announced Scarlet Nexus, Gundam Breaker: Battlogue, Yashahime: Princess Half-Demon: The Second Act. So the season 3 of Code Geass will not be announced anytime soon.
Code Geass Storyline
The story is about the exiled prince of Britannia Lelouch vi Britannia and his sister Nunnally vi Britannia. Nunnally loses her sight and ability to walk after seeing her mother killed in the palace. Lelouch, believing that his father has failed his mother and sister, turns against him.

Lelouch, enraged, promises to avenge his father’s misdeeds to his Japanese friend Suzaku Kururugi and joins Ashford Academy under a different last name. Lelouch is granted a power, called Geass that allows him to command whoever he wants by a mysterious girl called CC.
