This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of July 15, 2021
The remaining half of 'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime' (Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken) season 2 is finally arriving in July, but as early as now, anime fans are already wondering about season 3.
The anime series based on the light novel series written by Fuse is among the most popular isekai’s today. It follows Rimuru, a man who gets killed and reincarnated in another world as a slime.
The adventures of Rimuru have been especially entertaining, so it's not surprising that fans are already wondering if there will be more adaptations in the future.
Let's discuss all the early details available for 'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime' season 3, including cast, release date, plot, predictions, and more.
Here's everything we know.
New episodes of 'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime' came out on July 6, 2021. However, this is not the third season of the anime yet. This is, instead, the second part of the split-cour Season 2. As of this writing, 'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime' is still not renewed for season 3.
'That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime' is one of the most beloved animes out there. The second season currently has an astounding 8.40/10 score on MyAnimeList. The anime has a huge fan base from all around the world. Hence, there is a high demand for a third season.
Eight Bit might announce the renewal once the remaining episodes of Season 2 finally air. However, there are also instances when animes take long gaps before announcing new seasons. Hopefully, this won't be the case for 'That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.' There is plenty of source material available for adaptation. The light novel series currently has 18 volumes published, and the anime has not covered even half of it yet.
We will update this if the anime is officially renewed for season 3.
Season 3 is still not confirmed, so all we could do for now is make an educated guess based on a few factors. The 24-episode first season of the anime was released on October 5, 2018, and aired until March 22, 2019. The second season was released in 2 split-cours. The first 12 episodes of season 2 aired from January 12, 2021, to March 30, 2021. The second split cour came out on July 6, 2021, and is expected to conclude by September.
There was an almost 2-year gap between season one's last episode and season 2's premiere. Hence, the third season might not be ready until mid-2023.
The remaining second half of 'That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime' season 2 is yet to air. Until we see where the second season will find a stopping point in corresponding to the light novel series, it will be hard to predict what exactly will happen in season 3.
However, based on the anime's pacing, the third season will likely start adapting the 8th volume of the source material. If our predictions are correct, the third season will begin with a massive party in Tempest.
Here's the official synopsis of volume 8:
"It's festival time in Tempest, and this exuberant ectoplasm knows how to throw a party! After reconciling with Hinata and securing his title as demon lord, Rimuru's pulling out all the stops to hold a massive bash in his nation of monsters, along with a little help from his many friends and allies!"
There was only a change in the director's chair between the two seasons, but the rest of the cast remained on board. Atsushi Nakayama replaced season 1's Yasuhito Kikuchi as the new director for 'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime' season 2.
If the anime gets renewed for season 3, the rest of the main voice cast will likely still appear to give life to the characters.
For the Japanese dub, we have Miho Okasaki as slime Rimuru, Megumi Toyoguchi as Great Sage, Asuna Tomari as hobgoblin Gobta, Chikahiro Kobayashi as wolfish Ranga, Mao Ichimichi as ogress Shion, and Kanehira Yamamoto as goblin leader Rigurd.
For the English dub, we have Brittney Karbowski as Rimuru, Mallorie Rodak as Great Sage, Ryan Reynolds as Gobta, Tyson Rinehart as Ranga, Michelle Rojas as Shion, and Kent Williams as Rigurd.
If our release date predictions are accurate, the official trailer for 'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime' Season 3 won't likely be available until next year or 2023. Don't worry because there are still 12 episodes of 'That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime' Season 2 to accompany us from July to September.
