Blue Exorcist fans have been waiting for a third season ever since the second one ended. It has been 2 years since that. Is there a possibility for Blue Exorcist Season 3 to take place? Read on to find out.

The Plot of Blue Exorcist
The first 25 episodes of the series follow Rin Okamura as he discovers that his brother and he are actually the children of Satan. Satan had sent his children to the world of humans, Assiah, as his vessels as he couldn’t enter it from his world, Gehenna. Upon realizing this, Rin starts training to become an exorcist to prevent his father from taking over Assiah.
The much shorter second season with 12 episodes progresses the story where the ExWire of True Cross Academy are in shock when they found out the truth about Rin’s parentage. But they have more important and urgent matters at hand to deal with as the left eye of the of a powerful demon, Impure King, has been stolen. When another attempt to steal the right eye takes place, the ExWires are sent to solve the mystery of Impure King and find the actual motive of the thief. When the right eye of Impure King is stolen right after they arrive, the exorcists can’t help but be suspicious about a traitor among them.
Blue Exorcist Season 3 Release Date
The release date has not been confirmed, but a third season seems very likely to be released. First of all, the producers have enough source material to base the third season. The manga has lots of chapters that have yet to be adapted into an anime. Also, the series does not lack in popularity, so the officials can be sure that a third season will be a hit if they release. It is usual for popular, well-doing anime to take a hiatus between season. Take this series as an example, the second season was released after a very long time since the first season’s end.
The possibility for Blue Exorcist to get another sequel is very high, but the question is when? The officials have not announced or confirmed the release date for Blue Exorcist Season 3 yet, so all we can do is wait and speculate. We can’t say for sure as A-1 Pictures has made it hard for us to predict the release date of Blue Exorcist Season 3. So, we will not be telling you guys to wait for a time when the sequel might release.
