Edens Zero Season 3, when will it happen?
If you have ever been in the anime community, you must have heard about Fairy Tail.
It’s among the most popular shonen series in the past decade that has managed to carve out a unique stage compared to other popular titles in this genre.
Mangaka Hiro Mashima s’ Fairy Tail holds a special place in many people s’ hearts. The adventures of Natsu, Lucy, and Happy, along with their guild members, have entertained the fans over the years.
While Fairy Tale may be concluded, Hiro Mashima has another successful serialization that has been ongoing ever since 2018.
It’s a series called Edens Zero, which received its anime adaption in April 2021.
The premise the story takes place in a space that, in essence, is filled with almost unreal numbers of mysteries and destinations.
Since this is a work of fiction, the grand adventure that’ll take place in space will have many fantastical aspects that intricately create a sense of adventure and exploration.
The story is set in the distant corners of outer space wherein a kid named Shiki, who, after years of living isolated on a planet with nothing but robots, can go out into space.
After a B-Cube user named Rebecca, alongside her dual-willed guns and robotic cat friend Happy, come to take him away so that they can search the cosmos for a being called mother.
Mother is said to grant any wish to the person that finds her, and to help with that, Shiki also has an ability called ether gear which activates a machine in one’s body to give them special abilities, in this case, him having the power of gravity.
Shiki, alongside Rebecca and Happy, continues to transverse through space as well as meet new people and become friends with them while searching for the wish-granting being, Mother.
With the series in its second season, fans of Edens Zero are already wondering if there will be a third installment or not.

WHAT IS THE EDENS ZERO SEASON 3 RELEASE DATE?
Edens Zero Season One aired from 11th April 2021 to 3rd October 2021 for 25 episodes. The series was renewed for a second season which premiered on 2nd April 2023, and as of writing, 18 out of the listed 25 episodes have been aired.
Currently, there is no update from studio J.C. Staff on the renewal of Edens Zero Season 3.
|Edens Zero Season 1||11th April 2021|
|Edens Zero Season 2||2nd April 2023|
|Edens Zero Season 3||Yet to be Announced|
Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
Edens Zero Season 2 has been a relative success however, it wasn’t even close to breaking into the top-rated anime list of Spring 2023.
The initial hype of the series was mainly due to its resemblance to Fairy Tail, but it did not get a huge viewer base from its time on Netflix.
Lackluster animation, barely any promotion, and poor adaption are a few reasons why Edens’s Zero hasn’t been a rip-roaring success.
Currently, J.C. Staff has listed three new projects for 2024, which effectively rules out the possibility of a swift renewal.
Considering the second season took years for its premiere, it won’t be a surprise if Edens Zero Season 3 follows suit.
All in All, any updates on Edens Zero Season 3 trailer and Edens Zero Season 3 release date would most likely be announced in 2025.
