Snow White with the Red Hair Season 3 Spoilers
Disclaimer: If you do not wish to spoil the third season for yourself, we advise you to skip this part. Also, this section is based on speculation and information from other sources. We do not confirm this to be canon. Many sources hint that Snow White with the Red Hair Season 3 will probably be the last series for the show.
The third season will have Shirayuki visit the northern region of Clarines. The Scholar District is known for its vast knowledge. And the people there are indulged in the information on herbs. Naturally, Shirayuki, along with Ryuu immerses herself in learning new things in this heaven on earth for her. Shirayuki sees Prince Izana in the Lilias Pavilion and remembers the time when he inquired about her relationship with Zen.
In Zen’s bedroom, he is seen recalling his memories of his beloved. Suddenly, someone enters his room with a letter from Izana. Out of the blue, Zen travels to the northern territory in a hurry.
The Chances of a Snow White with the Red Hair Season 3 Release Date
The possibility of Snow White with the Red Hair Season 3 taking place is high. It is widely known that the producers are probably delaying Snow White with the Red Hair Season 3.
The anime covered around eight volumes of the original manga. This leaves the producers with lots of source material to base their work on. Also, the reception for Snow White with the Red Hair has been very positive, and fans have been eagerly waiting for renewal to the series. Also, since the second season did not draw a conclusion to Shirayuki and Zen’s story, we believe that the show will probably receive a sequel.
Then why are the producers delaying it? Well, Bones studio is one of the best studios who have created really great shows. Right now they are prioritizing others shows like My Hero Academia, Mob Psycho 100 and Bungo Stray Dogs over Snow White with the Red Hair. Many sources agree to this. Also, a few sources say that the studio could not make much in revenue. Hence, why the show might be delayed.
The show might probably receive a sequel sometime in 2020 (mostly in spring-fall of the year) or in 2021.
