KonoSuba Season 3 release date will be in 2024, and fans can be able to watch it on Crunchyroll as well as other streaming platforms and TV channels. Seasons 1 and 2 of KonoSuba previously aired in 2016 and 2017, respectively, and both are also available on Crunchyroll.
Will KonoSuba Get a Season 3 or Is It Canceled?
KonoSuba has not been canceled and will definitely get a season 3. This season 3 was confirmed in July 2021 via the official Twitter account of the anime series. That announcement also confirmed that the spin-off novel series, KonoSuba: An Explosion on This Wonderful World! will get an anime treatment.
This anime treatment of the spin-off series was subsequently released between April and June 2023. It gave the backstory of Megumin and her clan before she eventually meets Kazuma and Aqua. The producers of KonoSuba have thus been busy with producing the spin-off series, but now that they are done with that, they will set their sights on producing season 3 of the main series.
When is KonoSuba Season 3 Coming Out?
Season 3 of KonoSuba will come out in 2024. Going by the previous antecedents of the show, fans won’t have to wait too long for it to hit the screens in 2024, as it will likely come out in the first quarter of that year. Meanwhile, KonoSuba Season 3 will continue from where Season 2 left off.
Season 2 concluded volume 4 of the light novel series upon which the anime is based. Season 3 will therefore start off from volume 5 and also cover volume 6. Its coverage may possibly extend to volumes 7 and 8 as well. It all depends on the number of episodes that the producers of the show want to go for.

KonoSuba Season 2 Ending Explained
The final three episodes of KonoSuba Season 2 has Aqua, Kazuma, and their pals in a town known as Alcanretia. Alcanretia is a deeply religious town with cultist tendencies. The town hosts the Axis Church founded by Aqua and the town’s inhabitants immediately revere her.
Kazuma is unimpressed by the ongoing; however, when the town turns against Aqua, he comes to her rescue. They find out that the town’s source of water and livelihood is being poisoned by Hans, one of the Devil King’s army leaders, and concoct a plan to stop him. At the end of Season 2 of KonoSuba, Aqua is able to kill off Hans with Kazuma’s help, and they then depart from Alcanretia and head back to their main town, Axel.
Synopsis of KonoSuba
KonoSuba is a Japanese anime based on a series of light novels written by Natsume Akatsuki. The full title is actually KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World! It tells the story of a young lad, Kazuma Satou, who dies after rescuing a young girl from what he thought was an oncoming truck. In his deceased state, Kazuma’s options are heaven or reincarnation.
A beautiful goddess named Aqua, however, offers him the option of traveling to a fantasy land which is akin to a role-playing game where he can go on various adventures. Kazuma is allowed to take only one thing from his present life, and so he decides to take Aqua. In their new world, they join forces with magician Megumin and crusading swordswoman, Darkness. They also have to confront a formidable foe named Devil King.

How Many Seasons of KonoSuba Will There Be?
KonoSuba may possibly have as many as eight seasons. This is based on a breakdown of the light novel series upon which the anime is based. The novel series has a total of 17 volumes which chronicles the adventures of Kazuma and Aqua from the very beginning right to the end, an ultimate battle with the Devil King. Each of the volumes has between 4 to 5 chapters.
Season 1 of KonoSuba, which had 10 episodes, captured the first two volumes, while Season 2 focused on the third and fourth volumes. Going by this pattern, it, therefore, means that KonoSuba may have as many as eight seasons. Of course, the producers could decide to increase the number of episodes per season, thus reducing the number of seasons that would have to be produced. One thing that is for sure is that the upcoming season 3 of KonoSuba won’t be the final season.
How Many Episodes of KonoSuba Will There Be?
KonoSuba currently has 20 episodes for the first two seasons, and we may likely get as many as 60 episodes extra. This means that there may possibly be as many as 80 episodes of KonoSuba or perhaps less. However, 80 episodes will cover the entire saga.
Of course, one must remember that the producers of KonoSuba are at liberty to decide not to produce any other seasons after season 3. Therefore, one cannot really say for sure how many episodes of KonoSuba there will be.
