The Promised Neverland’s anime adaptation by CloverWorks was a huge success – well, at least the first season was. But will we ever see The Promised Neverland: Season 3?
In the initial chapters, the animation captured the manga’s atmosphere and characters really well. Some scenes keep you on the edge, trying to figure out what the heck is really going on.
With such a great first season, it’s expected that the next season would come out just as awesome. That, however, didn’t happen with The Promised Neverland. The new episodes were very ill-received by critics and by the general public. It felt like every good thing about the first season was thrown away, leaving CloverWorks with a stain on its name.
And so, maybe CloverWorks releases The Promised Neverland: Season 3, and makes it just as good as Season 1. You know, to make amends.
Except this might not be the case.
The Promised Neverland: Season 1
The first season of The Promised Neverland introduces us to the orphanage and its inhabitants. We get to see a diverse and adorable array of characters, as well as their schemes and disputes.
Right away, the viewer realizes this isn’t your regular neighborhood orphanage. Throughout the episodes, we follow smart plots, failures, and discoveries, all at a steady pace so you don’t miss anything.
And then, we’re left wanting more.
The Promised Neverland: Season 2
But The Promised Neverland: Season 2 didn’t deliver much of anything.
The show’s latest season was undoubtedly a failure, compared to the previous one. Most of the first season’s pacing was lost, becoming rather rushed, as if the producers were trying to just finish the anime. The manga’s original storyline was changed (which isn’t a bad thing by itself), while many arcs were skipped and the story’s ending is finished with still pictures, leaving a sour taste in the mouth/
Sure, there are much worse anime out there. However, Season 1’s quality is too much of a contrast with Season 2’s, making it feel like wasted potential.
Still, maybe a third season could do the trick. All that is left to know is if and when it will be released.
Is The Promised Neverland: Season 3 Coming Out?
So, is The Promised Neverland ever going to be a reality?
Short answer: no. The Promised Neverland: Season 3 will likely never come out.
The manga was basically wrapped up with Season 2. CloverWorks summed up the whole story, from start to finish, while jumping some arcs. That means there are no further stories to be covered. For that reason, it’s unlikely that a third season will come out.
Some of the skipped arcs might be approached, though. Certain stories and secondary characters weren’t shown in the anime, so they’re a potential target for a new chapter in the show.
But, all in all, if the animation is going to get a new season, it’s not coming any time soon. And since CloverWorks has other ongoing projects, The Promised Neverland: Season 3 is likely not going to happen.
The most likely outcome? It will get remade later down the line and more faithfully follow the source material, but that’s more of a wish than anything.
