Kazue Kato’s Blue Exorcist has been around for a long time now, and its popularity has been ever increasing. The manga managed to get itself an anime adaptation back in 2011. Eight years ago, the first season Blue Exorcist aired. When it concluded, we didn’t get another season for six huge years.
Only in 2017 was it followed up with the second season, called Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga. Now, we’re waiting for the third season to come out, but when will that happen? Will it happen at all? We’ll discuss all that down in this post so let’s get started!
Before we begin, I want to let you all know that this post contains official spoilers from the next arc of the anime itself. There is stuff that you probably wouldn’t want to know if you don’t like spoilers. If you hate being spoiled, I suggest that you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started.
If you’re a fan of the show, I just have to tell you that there isn’t any plan on going that we know about for a continuation of Ao no Exorcist. This means that a season is not in production as far as we know and we won’t be getting the third season anytime soon. Now, does this mean that we’ll never get Blue Exorcist Season 3? No.
We’ll most likely get a third season. However, the wait between Season 1 and Season 2 was massive. It leads me to believe that we may have another similar wait ahead of us. I hope it isn’t six years once again, because most fans will just lose interest in the anime if that will be the case. I hope that we do get an announcement soon. For now, it seems like Blue Exorcist Season 3 isn’t going to happen anytime soon.
