Fire Force enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of season three since the conclusion of the second season in December 2020.

The official Twitter account of Fire Force confirmed the arrival of season three in May 2022. Regrettably, the reveal lacked specific details, and no release date for Season 3 was disclosed. There was a period of uncertainty regarding the anime's continuation into a third season, making this confirmation a source of excitement for fans. As the anticipation builds, enthusiasts will need to wait patiently for further information to be officially disclosed.
The extended wait for Fire Force season three can be attributed to two main factors: the time-consuming production associated with action-packed shonen shows and the series almost catching up with the manga in 2020. It seems the animation studio wanted to ensure an ample amount of source material before diving into the new season.
Considering these factors, it's unlikely that Fire Force season three will debut before spring 2024. Adding to the speculation is a recent rumor suggesting that Studio Shaft might take over from David Production, the studio behind the first two seasons.

The conclusion of "Fire Force" Season 2 (if you remember) left viewers on the edge, hinting at an impending clash between Company 8 and the formidable Evangelist. Shinra Kusakabe, fueled by the desire to confront increasingly perilous adversaries, underwent intense training to reach a new level known as "The Press Of Death."
The season finale dealt a severe blow with the assassination of Company 4's Captain Hague, but Shinra's heightened abilities allowed him to establish an Adolla Link, providing insights into Hague's final moments.
As Season 3 looms, fans can anticipate a continuation of the gripping narrative. Drawing insights from the manga source material, Season 1 covered Volume 1 to some of Volume 11, while Season 2 spanned the rest of Volume 11 to certain chapters of Volume 20. Season 3 is poised to delve into uncharted territory, particularly exploring Volume 21, where Shinra faces his most formidable opponent, Captain Barns of the 1st Brigade.
A seismic shift occurs as Company 1 allies with The Holy Sol Temple, the Empire's dominant religion, and Company 8 is labeled a terrorist group under the Evangelist-controlled government. The narrative unfolds with Captain Obi's imprisonment, casting Company 8 as rebels against their own organization. Collaborating with the enigmatic Joker, the team embarks on a daring mission to rescue their captain in the 'Obi's Rescue' arc.
Season 3 is expected to conclude the Stigma arc's unresolved events from Season 2 and propel viewers into a high-stakes confrontation between Company 8 and The White-Clad leaders. While Season 3 is poised to deliver intense moments, it's crucial to note that the anime has closely adhered to Atsushi Ohkubo's manga.
Season 3 might mark the culmination of the series, covering the remaining chapters up to the manga's conclusion at Chapter 304 in February 2022. As viewers await the new season, exploring the manga offers additional insights into Ohkubo's creative vision, inspired by real-life heroes – firefighters.
If you've found yourself rewatching "Fire Force" seasons one and two and craving more of the story, diving into the manga might be the perfect solution. With 34 volumes in total, readers can delve deeper into the narrative. The final volume was released on October 3, 2023.
