Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch From Mercury Season 3, will it happen?
The mecha genre has a long and storied history, and one of its most enduring franchises is the Gundam series, which has captured the imaginations of countless fans over the years. Studio Sunrise’s latest offering, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury, is a highly-anticipated addition to this beloved franchise.
The setting of the story takes place in a distant future where the solar system is inhabited by two groups, Spacians and Earthians. The latter follow a new calendar system called Ad Stella.
The Vanadis Institute, which operates in this harsh environment, has created man-machine systems known as GUND in order to ensure survival.
According to recent reports, the Mobile Suit Development Council has implemented a ban on the production of GUND mechs. In light of this decision, Council member Delling Rembran is said to have deployed the special forces team Dominicus to conduct a mission at the Vanadis research facility Fólkvangr. Regrettably, the mission resulted in the loss of all lives aboard the facility.
The narrative of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury unfolds in the year Ad Stella 122, precisely 21 years after the Vanadis incident. The protagonist, Suletta Mercury, is a solitary young lady who receives a transfer to the Asticassia School of Technology at her mother’s behest.
Asticassia School of Technology is a prominent institution in the mobile suit industry that has instituted a unique method of conflict resolution among its students, which involves settling disputes through duels.
During her time at the school, Suletta encounters Miorine Rembran, who is engaged to Guel Jeturk, the institution’s top pilot. Miorine extends an invitation to Suletta to move in with her fiancé.
Suletta expresses her discontent with the decision taken and proposes to settle the matter through a duel, which she eventually wins. However, her triumph raises doubts as she was operating a Gundam model that is prohibited.
The previous victory of Miorine has been nullified due to certain discrepancies, however, she has decided to challenge again with higher stakes. In order to prevent any perceived injustice, it now falls upon Suletta to reclaim the championship title and maintain the integrity of the competition.
Season two of the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury received a considerably higher level of popularity in comparison to its previous installments.
This was largely attributed to the successful incorporation of a female lead character in the series, which was well-received by the fans. The show’s engaging storyline was also a significant factor in its success.

As mentioned earlier, Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch From Mercury Season 2 was well received by the fandom and, as a result became one of the top-rated animes of the Spring 2023 slate.
The Witch From Mercury series has done well in reviving the Gundam franchise as it delivered a record-high of 131.3 billion yen among the group’s major subsidiaries.
The company’s major brands, such as Ultraman, Super Sentai, Kamen Rider, and others, are overshadowed only by the iconic Dragonball franchise.
Studio Sunrise or now known as Bandai Namco Filmworks, has two projects scheduled for 2023 which effectively rules this year for a swift renewal.
However, the Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch From Mercury s’ financial success could easily place it on the top of the renewal charts in 2024 for Bandai Namo Filmworks.
Despite the second season s’ finale imparting a fitting end, the worldbuilding pointed to more episodes hence the version of the screenplay stopping at 24 episodes would have been the backup plan if the show wasn’t profitable enough.
Furthermore, most of the successful main-line Gundam shows have run from 50 episodes which could be a trend the creators could and fans hoping would must follow.
Although there isn’t a source material such as Mobile Suit Gundam The Witch From Mercury manga to adapt, plotlines can be made out of Peil, the Space Assembly League, and the Earthean revolution with more than Dawn of Fold terrorists.
It has been officially announced that a new feature film titled Mobile Suit Gundam: SEED FREEDOM, a sequel to the popular anime series Mobile Suit Gundam: SEED DESTINY, will be released on 26th January 2024.
Thus, financially it makes no sense to discontinue such a profitable series, and a renewal could be a possibility by the end of 2024.
It is with great pleasure to inform you that G-Witch has been renewed for a third season. As a result, we can expect the release of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Season 3 trailer and Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Season 3 release date by 2025.
