Fire Force season 3 release date speculation, cast, plot, and news

It's been years since the anime's season 2 finale, and distance makes the heart grow hotter. Here's what we know about Fire Force season 3.

It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for new episodes of Crunchyroll’s hottest (literally) anime, so here we go into all the available information about the Fire Force season 3 release date so you don’t need to scroll through pages of cindered scraps.

The last time we had new Fire Force episodes was in December 2020 — far too long if you ask the fans of one of Crunchyroll’s best animes — when Company 8 tried to snuff out the spontaneous combustion taking place across a burning Tokyo in the Shonen anime. Season 2 was confirmed in May 2022, so here’s what we know.

Fire Force season 3 release date speculation

While there’s no official release date for Fire Force season 3 just yet, we expect it’ll land sometime in late 2024. 

Season 3 was announced in May 2022, on the same day the final volume of the manga went on sale, which lends credibility to rumors about the anime hanging back to let the manga run its course and provide the series with more material.

Given what happened to Game of Thrones when it ran out of books, we’re not mad at this concept.

Fire Force season 3 cast speculation

All of Company 8 should be back in Fire Force season 3’s cast to snuff out some more flames, including Gakuto Kajiwara as Shinra.

There’s no official word on the full roster of anime characters for the new installment yet, but we’ll get that in due time. Below are the expected Japanese voice actors as well as the English dub.

Here’s the expected Japanese Fire Force season 3 cast list:

  • Gakuto Kajiwara as Shinra
  • Kazuya Nakai as Captain Obi
  • Mao Ichimichi as Iris
  • Kenichi Suzumura as Takehisa
  • Aoi Yuuki as Tamaki
  • Yuusuke Kobayashi as Arthur
  • Saeko Kamijou as Maki
  • Kenjirou Tsuda as Joker

Here’s the expected English dub Fire Force season 3 cast list:

  • Derick Snow as Shinra
  • Jeremy Inman as Captain Obi
  • Alexis Tipton as Iris
  • Christopher Wehkamp as Takehisa
  • Jad Saxton as Tamaki
  • Eric Vale as Arthur
  • Sarah Roach as Maki
  • Sonny Strait as Joker

What is Fire Force season 3 about?

Fire Force season 3 could tie up the loose ends of the ‘Stigma’ arc from season 2 before starting ‘Obi’s Rescue’ arc, which involves Company 8 getting Captain Obi out of jail. 

Season 2 left some things unresolved, which gives season 3 a jumping-off point before diving into new territory. Well, sort of new; expect the manga’s plot to be the blueprint here.

With most of the source material already used in the first two seasons of Fire Force, it’s starting to make sense why we’ve had a long pause. There’s now more to adapt, but with the manga ending in 2022, this could be the final season. It all depends on how the new anime episodes are paced.

Is there a Fire Force season 3 trailer?

We expect a Fire Force season 3 trailer or teaser in the first half of 2024. There’s no footage of any kind yet, though.

While we’re probably far off from a full-length trailer, teasers and other key art are often released much earlier. So we’ll likely have something to hold us over not too long from now.

That being said, there have been no official updates on season 3’s production status, so it’s difficult to guess until we know the release window.

Where can I watch Fire Force season 3?

Season 3 of Fire Force will stream on Crunchyroll, but you’ll also be able to buy it on VOD platforms such as Apple TV.

You’ve got good options if you’d like to revisit earlier seasons too, with episodes on Hulu and Funimation as well as Crunchyroll, which is the best streaming service for anime.

How many episodes of Fire Force season 3 will there be?

There are 24 episodes in Fire Force seasons 1 and 2, so we suspect season 3 will have 24 too.

And with every episode so far in the 23-24 minute range, that’s the length we imagine they’ll be, too. We don’t have episode descriptions or any details yet, though — they’ll show up on Crunchyroll’s Fire Force landing page in due course.

Unlike the best TV series from the prestige world, anime still usually opts for lots of serialized storytelling and higher volume — different strokes for different folks.

There’s not a lot to go on, but we do have other anime content to fan your flames. Check out the Baki Hanma season 3 release date and the Blue Exorcist season 3 release date (this is a lot of third seasons, huh?) guides for similar speculation or find out about the best anime movies and new movies of all genres coming soon.

Also, sorry to do this to you, but One Piece manga is now available for free, so you can ruin your life.
