Emilico is delighted to serve her mistress Kate despite their difference in personalities. As she becomes more well verse in her service, Emilico meets other dolls performing the same duty. 

She begins to wonder what is the purpose of her existence and what are the untold secrets hidden in the mansion. Can Emilico find out the answers to this question is the central plot of the show.

Production studios look at various consumer metrics, both financial and commercial, before considering a renewal.

The first season provided a boot to the Shadows House manga, which was ranked #257 in the first volume estimated sales from 3rd May to 9th May 2021. Shadows House also came runner-up for the Best Ending Sequence in Crunchyroll s’ 2022 anime awards. 

Many fans compared the aesthetics and theme of the series with another popular suspense drama in the form of Promised Neverland. 

The only negative criticism the anime received was towards its creator, i.e., Studio CloverWorks, which by common consent from manga readers, ruined many plot points in the beginning.

Nevertheless, the series overall is on the right path to be greenlit for season three production.

Currently, CloverWorks has some big projects lined up for the new year, which include My Dress up Darling and Spy x Family; however, the studio should be free to work on Shadows House Season 3 by the Summer of 2023.

Considering the fact there is enough source material for a third season, and the series is renewed before the year-end, we can expect the Shadows House Season 3 trailer and Shadows House Season 3 release date to drop on July 2023.
