The Asterisk War seasons 1 and 2 manage to average a 7/10 rating on MyAnimeList and got quite a lot of fans. But was it all enough to get us a third season? Let's explore.
This article was recently reviewed and is up to date as of September 14, 2020.
At the moment, the renewal status of The Asterisk War Season 3 stands at pending. No news has been released regarding its renewal or cancellation, which seems to be the case for many animes these days. It's a plain fact that animes take a long time to create, so unlike American TV shows that usually can get filmed and released within a year, animes take a lot more work. It's very much possible that we will get a third season, especially as the light novel series it is based upon is still ongoing. The last volume that was released was December 25, 2019. The volume before the last was released on April 25, 2019, which was the third volume of a spinoff entitled "Wings of Queenvale." This spinoff series is grounds for a whole lot more content for the television series.
One other tell-tale sign that the television series isn't over is the fact that it is now available on Netflix. Netflix only picks up animes that are successful and promising. And if the original production studio, A-1 Pictures Inc., decides to end the series, Netflix may then renew it. Netflix has done this a lot of times, and I think The Asterisk War deserves a renewal.
Chance of renewal: HIGH!
If The Asterisk War hasn't been canceled, I think we can expect season 3 to become available in 2021. I won't be surprised if we get news of its renewal sometime during the fall. We'll update this article as new information becomes available.
The Asterisk War is set in a world decimated by a global cataclysm called Invertia and is run by an assembly known as the Integrated Enterprise Foundation. In this post-apocalyptic world, some people are born with unusual superhuman abilities called Genestella, and they attend elite schools for people with special abilities. In the story, we follow a boy by the name of Ayato Amagiri, who transfers to one of the highest-ranked schools, Seidoukan Academy, in an attempt to find his missing sister. But things aren't sunshine and rainbows for young Ayato as he is challenged to duels known as Festas.
