Fire Force Season 3 - What We Know So Far

Anime is thriving today, thanks to the genre's abundance of interesting and stunningly animated series available. For example, the "Demon Slayer" film has already broken a couple of movie records, while "Jujutsu Kaisen's" mix of typical shonen action with the supernatural has arguably made it a must-watch series. Yet we'd be remiss if we forgot to mention "Fire Force," whose unique spin on a team of firefighters and the concept of spontaneous combustion has helped propel the series to its much-deserved popularity.

The series, based on the manga from "Soul Eater" creator Atsushi Ōkubo, has to do with Shinra Kusakabe, a third-generation pyrokinetic who is able to ignite his feet with fire. Shinra joins up with another team of pyrokinetics known as Special Fire Force Company 8 to deal with Infernals, who are humans transformed into living blazes through spontaneous combustion.

"Fire Force's" second season wrapped up in December 2020 and became one of the top five most-watched anime television shows on Amazon Prime Japan (Via Anime News Network). Fans are clearly holding out for another season of the hit series, so here's all the info we've got so far about Season 3 of "Fire Force."

When will Fire Force Season 3 be released?

"Fire Force" Season 3 was officially confirmed on May 16, 2022, by the show's official Twitter account. Unfortunately, at this time, we still do not have a release date or any production updates. For quite some time we didn't even know if the anime would be picked up for a third season, so at least we can hold on to that excitement while we wait for Crunchy Roll or Funimation to drop the release date. 

With 2022 winding down and no updates, it's looking like "Fire Force" Season 3 will land in early 2023. The first two seasons of the anime aired in summer, so we could be about six months away before we get any new episodes of "Fire Force" if they follow suit.

What's the plot of Fire Force Season 3?

We don't have any concrete plot details for "Fire Force" Season 3 yet. The anime has mostly followed the manga, so we can likely guess what Season 3 will entail for Shinra. Volumes 1 to some of 11 of the manga were covered by Season 1 of the anime, while Season 2 covered the rest of volume 11 up to some chapters of volume 20. If the manga is truly in its final point in the story, Season 3 could adapt volume 20 up to its potential end, unless the anime series goes into filler territory like "Naruto" or "Bleach."

The Season 2 finale seemed to indicate an even bigger future battle between Company 8 and the Evangelists. Wanting to become stronger to deal with the Company's increasingly dangerous enemies, Shinra was pushed in his training to reach a new point called "The Press Of Death." Meanwhile, the season finale also dealt a huge blow to the heroes, thanks to the assassination of Company 4's Captain Hague. However, thanks to his new level in ability, Shinra is able to establish an Adolla Link, allowing him to see Hague's final moments. Season 3 will likely follow these events as Company 8 joins with the Tokyo Empire to take on the Evangelist's powerful forces.

Who is starring in Fire Force Season 3?

An official list of who's in the cast for "Fire Force" Season 3 has not been revealed. Based on the consistency behind the scenes of the first two seasons of the series, it's likely we could see a mostly returning cast of characters. The only additions to the cast were a few new characters, such as Ogun Montgomery, voiced by Makoto Furukawa (Japanese) and Zeno Robinson (English), and Scop, voiced by Kentaro Ito (Japanese) and Tyler Walker (English). We should still see a returning voice cast that includes Gakuto Kajiwara (Japanese) and Derick Snow (English) as Shinra (Via Anime News Network).

Just as with the first two seasons, the same studio, David Production, should be back to animate Season 3. Tatsuma Minamikawa replaced Yuki Yase to direct Season 2 of "Fire Force." Unless otherwise stated, it's likely Minamikawa will also return as director for season 3, along with Kazuhiro Miwa as chief animator, and Kenichiro Suehiro as composer.

Where to stream former seasons of Fire Force

While you prepare for Season 3 of "Fire Force," might we suggest going back and rewatching Seasons 1-2? Luckily, "Fire Force" is available on multiple streaming platforms, something not very common regarding anime or television series in general. Hulu currently offers both seasons for those with a basic membership, but it's also available on the ever-so-reliable Crunchyroll. Seasons 1 and 2 are available on the popular anime streamer with French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, and English dubs. You can watch the anime for free with ads (which can get long on the streamer) or buy their premium subscription to get right to the action.

Additionally, you can also stream both "Fire Force" seasons on Funimation for free with ads. With a premium membership, you can skip those pesky ads.
