Cells At Work Season 3: Release Date, Cast, Plot, Updates, And Everything You Know!

Cells At Work Season 3, will it ever happen?

Animes with unique concepts are always welcome within the fandom, and Cells At Work is one of those series that fits that specific description.

Cells At Work is the anime adaption of Akane Shimizu s’ manga series, Hataraku Saibou, which premiered in the Summer 2018 season.

The premise is set inside the human body, where 37.2 trillion cells work tirelessly throughout the year to keep it healthy.

The plot follows two anthropomorphic fresh out of training cells, i.e., a rookie red blood cell, AE3803, and a blood cell, U-1146.

AE3803 is handed the important task of transporting oxygen, while U-1146 is responsible for patrolling and eliminating harmful bacteria trying to invade the body. Meanwhile, platelets act to stop bleeding and heal wounds. 

Cells At Work shows the daily lives of these cells as they act together while bickering with other cell types to keep the body healthy.

Cells at Work has been a massive success, but after the conclusion of season two, fans are wondering if there will be a third installment or not.

To find the answer, keep scrolling as we bring you all the latest news and updates on Cells At Work Season 3.

Cells at Work season one ran from 8th July 2018 to 30th September 2018 for 13 episodes. The series was renewed for a second season that aired from 9th January 2021 to 27th February 2021 for 8 episodes.

As of writing, there is no update from studio David Productions on the renewal of Cells At Work Season 3.

Production studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.

Financially, the Blu-ray discs sold around 8,000 units with a popularity score of 88.8% from various broadcasting platforms.

As mentioned earlier, Cells At Work is a popular comedy series and was also one of the top-rated animes of Summer 2018.

If you look at the second season s’ IMDB rating, there is no doubt fans were engaged throughout its run.

While the reviews, ratings, and profits are favorable, a crucial factor will be the availability of studio and source material.

Unfortunately, both the seasons covered 25 of the available 30 chapters from the Hataraku Saibou manga. 

This leaves behind only five chapters for a potential Cells At Work Season 3, which is safe to say will not be enough.

Furthermore, David Productions has new anime, i.e., Undead Unluck, scheduled to release later this year; hence the studio is occupied as well.

All in all, it’s unlikely that Cells At Work Season 3 will be happening, and hence it could be futile waiting for any updates on the Cells At Work Season 3 trailer and the Cells At Work Season 3 release date.

The only potential way for Cell at Work to return is by adapting the spin-off manga series, which remains popular among the readers. 

Check out the title, release date, and no. of volumes information below:

Cells at Work! Code BlackJune 7, 2018 – January 21, 20218 Volumes
Cells at Work!: Bacteria!May 2017 – August 20207 Volumes
Cells NOT at Work!July 26, 2017 – present4 Volumes
Cells at Work and Friends!January 12, 2019 – present5 Volumes
Cells at Work!: Platelets!May 25, 2019 – present3 Volumes
Cells at Work!: Baby!October 17, 2019 – present3 Volumes
Cells at Work!: Lady!January 22, 2020 – present2 Volumes
Cells at Work!: WHITEOctober 26, 2020 – present1 Volume

If creators choose, they can also adapt the remaining sixth volume, which covers induced pluripotent stem cells and even COVID-19.

Hataraku Saibou Season 3 characters White Blood Cell, Red Blood Cell, Macrophage, and the cute little Platelets face a threat unlike any they have ever dealt with before COVID-19! But even this threat can be defeated as long as everyone works together.

The uplifting and informative series comes to a close with one last tour of the hardworking body, featuring “left shift” in the blood, retinal degeneration, and a simple bump on the noggin. But, of course, as long as there’s a job to do, this team won’t quit!

Cells At Work! Friend is probably the best way to extend the main anime series since it features side stories set in the original body.

At the same time, the newer manga features a fearsome Killer T Cell as its main protagonist, so it may be released as a standalone anime title.
