Will There Be Gate Season 3: Everything We Know

GATE is a fantasy series based on a light novel written by Takumi Yanai and illustrated by Daisuke Izuka. It has ten completed volumes, followed by a light novel sequel called GATE: Weigh Anchor.

The story is very enjoyable and starts at a slow pace. The story describes how a door suddenly opens in modern Japan, and monsters pour out, causing havoc. To counter this, the JSDF goes through the door to “talk peace with the higher-ups” on the other side.

With the anime show divided into two courses, the upcoming season would be the third one so far. The anime received good reviews at the time of its release, and the light novels were even more loved by the audience than the anime.

So fans are curious, why hasn’t there been a Gate Season 3 so far? How long would it take for the upcoming season to return to television?

Gate Season 3 Release Date

Gate Season 3 Release Date

There is no official news available on the renewable status of the series by the production team.

The previous seasons covered the first five volumes of the light novel and there are five more to go. Thus, the production team may release Gate Season 3 in late 2022 or early 2023.

One of the reasons for the delay is the gap between the seasons. It is common for producers to take more than five years off between each season to increase curiosity and cover the lack of raw material.

The other reason is the lack of effective source material. Although there are still five volumes of light novels to be adapted, they are only parallel stories.

While the main story ended in volume 5 which was adapted in season 2.

Also, fans like the light novels more than the anime, because the anime skipped a lot of content, information and details about the events that happen with Japan and JSDF.

But, A-1 Pictures could not do much without interrupting the pace of the plot with dialogue.

A-1 Pictures is a studio that has created anime such as Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Magi, Blue Exorcist and Black Butler.

It has experience in creating fantasy worlds without disrupting the flow of the story with extra information. Let’s hope they find the time to animate the continuation of this wonderful series.

Gate Season 3 will adapt the next five volumes of light novels, which contain the parallel stories of the events after the coronation.

They have set up an important step for the sequel of the light novel ‘Gate Season 2: Weigh Anchor’, which takes place four years later.

The official sites have not yet released teasers for the anime. We will update this article when we have the information.

Gate Season 3: Expected plot

Season 2 ends with the coronation of Princess Pina Co Lada and Prince Zorzal taking revenge against Japan for it. Gate Season 3 will adapt the parallel stories of the next five volumes, leading up to the Weigh Anchor scene.

The upcoming season will most likely include the civil war that breaks out in the Empire because of Zorzal, as he rallies his imperial troops for the conflict.

But Zorzal is not the immediate threat, as the consequences of all the nations trying to intervene with the special region cause the Earth gate to close.

The JSDF loses reinforcements, supplies, and equipment, and Itami loses his will to continue (his doujinshi convention was crushed just before the war). The season is likely to adapt the Weigh Anchor novels in the second half of the season.
