The story dates forward to thousands of years in the future, where humanity had to leave Earth after being destroyed by the shapeshifters known as the Guana.
It's been three years ever since fans saw the second season of Knights of Sidonia. They clearly have all the valid reasons to be impatient as they love the anime series way too much, and haven't got any update about when will the third season happen. Netflix has surprised all its anime fans by adding a chock-full of the most popular anime series of all time, and 'Knights of Sidonia' is one of the original Netflix series which is based on the manga of the same name. The manga is created by Tsutomu Nihei, and this anime was the very first of Netflix's now multiple Original anime series. Even though the series is not full 'Original', Netflix has procured the exclusive license to stream the series globally.
The story dates forward to thousands of years in the future, where humanity had to leave Earth after being destroyed by the shapeshifters known as the Guana. Mankind fled on hundreds of ships but the only known ship with possibly the last remnants of humanity aboard is the Sidonia. Sidonia is attacked by Guana and is up to pilot Nagate Tankikaze and his fellow pilots to save the day.
Well, of course! The source material from which these anime draws inspiration from has covered roughly 43 of the 78 chapters available. Even though the timeline of the anime has been changed, the remaining source material is close to the anime series. No matter what, the production team will easily have enough content and material to produce 2 or 3 more seasons. Having said that, the next season of Knights of Sidonia is likely to cover 12 to 14 Chapters.
The last time we heard about anything related to Knights of Sidonia was when the news broke that a third season will be happening. However, after that fans have not heard much about the latest season. However, if the series has been in production since late 2017 then news on Season 3 can drop in at any time.

One thing is for sure is that whenever the series is released it will come first in Japan before it comes to Netflix. Going with when the anime season starts - it is either in around April or May. The moment the full season is aired in Japan, fans will be able to watch it on Netflix within weeks. Since the third season has yet to premiere in Japan then our next best guess is summer 2020.
Yes, they really do!

I just finished/caught up on all of Knights of Sidonia in like 3 days.
10/10 recommend if you like sci-fi anime.
The bulk of anime I have enjoyed most enthusiastically since Knights of Sidonia has come from Netflix. I've been the Netflix Anime GUY since Knights of Sidonia came on the scene. Yes, I was preaching Netflix before Devilman Crybaby.— David Majors, Boldly Existing (@CallMeDjm) June 5, 2019
The Boulder Is Conflicted.
I’ve been enjoying Knights of Sidonia on the @NetflixUK. At times reminds of Evangelion, Red Dwarf, and Battlestar Galactica, but quickly became its own thing. Surprisingly grounded for an anime! pic.twitter.com/uKva9wmbOB— James Sharpe (@JamesSharpe) January 13, 2019
