The curious nature of humans to explore the mysterious has long been a fascination and the basic setup of many animes. One of the many such wonderments filled with adventure is Made in Abyss.
Made in Abyss is a dark fantasy-adventure anime based on the manga writings of Akihito Tsukushi.
The story starts in the town of Orth, surrounded by a giant hole descending unendingly to the bottom of the earth.
The abyss is central to this world and this bottomless pit encompasses the entire city. Its home to dangerous monsters, and mysterious artifacts, and the rules of the pit have baffled the laws of physics.

“Meet me at the bottom of the Abyss.”Can they find Riko s’ mother despite the horror the Abyss holds is the central plot of the show.
As of writing, Made in Abyss season two is still running, but fans have already been asking if Abyss season 3 is a possibility or not since the second season took five years to be renewed. Don’t worry, we don’t have to delve into a deep hole to find the answer; keep reading to learn more about Made in Abyss Season 3.
Made in Abyss is rated 8.6/10 and ranked #92 with 1.1 million members on MyAnimeList.
IS MADE IN ABYSS RENEWED FOR SEASON 3?
The first season of Made in Abyss aired on 7th July 2017 to 29th September 2017 for 13 episodes. The show is currently running its second season, which began on 6th July 2022, and has completed six episodes out of thirteen.
If you are reading this during the second season run, there is no update from the creator and author for the renewal of a Made in Abyss season 3.
As mentioned previously, the considerable gap between the two seasons has raised concerns over the waiting period for the third season.
When the first season premiered, the author had only completed six volumes of the manga, out of which the first three and parts of the fourth were adapted; as a result, a lack of source material caused the massive delay.
Furthermore, the volume releases don’t come on time as the latest issue of the manga only came out on 29th July 2022. Surprisingly, the author has only managed to write 63 chapters in ten years and still gets a second season renewal.
Looking at the ongoing second season and lack of source material for the third season, it is safe to say Made in Abyss season 3 release date isn’t going to be soon. The best we can hope for is a late 2023 or early 2024 premiere date.
For now, yo can carry on with the second season, and when that ends, a 3D action RPG game is something that will keep you busy.

MADE IN ABYSS SEASON 3 PLOT
A plot for third season cant be made certain as the second season is still on the air. But that doesn’t stop us from deep diving into a possible plot for next season.
The plot for Abyss season 3 will rely on where the second season ends, and accordingly, showrunners will set up and pick the story from judging by past releases; a second non-compilation movie.
So far, we have seen the anime adapting 2-3 chapters per episode, and the upcoming episode, i.e., Episode 7 titled “Cradle of Desire,” will adapt chapter 50 from the manga. Furthermore, we have seen voice clips from chapter 54 during the fan meet.
Considering the second season runs for 13 episodes, Made in Abyss season 2 will end on Chapter 60, or it may trickle on to Chapter 61.
Either way, we believe the perfect send-off for the second season will be the departure of Faputa from the group as Riko is bewildered that she can hear the voices of White Whistles.
Now coming to the possible plot for the third season, the creators can choose to open the premier with the trio of Reg, Nanachi, and Riko making their into the sixth layer as they are concerned about the well-being of Faputa.
The sixth layer, is called the capital of unreturned and anyone who enters this layer feels the loss of humanity or even death; this is called the white whistle, the last dive.
According to myths, a golden city is seen forming from the sixth layer covered in golden ruins and rumor has it the inhabitants sleep undisturbed.
The third season will introduce more dangerous creatures and new sixth and seventh layers of the Abyss.
