Dr. Stone is a dystopian science fiction animation based on a Japanese manga story authored by Riichiro Inagaki and drawn by South Korean artist Boichi. It depicts a world in which most humanity becomes petrified due to a strange flare of light.
Senku Ishigami, a scientific prodigy, awakens 3,700 years later to find that the world has reverted to the stone age. Senku starts the laborious work of reviving human civilization with the assistance of the individuals he and others resuscitate and descendants of the astronauts who survived petrification due to their space travel.
The first season of ‘Dr. Stone’ aired from July 5 to December 13, 2019. It is a two-season anime with 24 episodes. The second season of ‘Dr. Stone’ or ‘Dr. Stone: Stone Wars’ just concluded. If you’re wondering when the third season of ‘Dr. Stone’ will premiere; here’s all you need to know.
Dr. Stone Season 3 Release Date
Dr. Stone’s second season, dubbed ‘Dr. Stone: Stone Wars’ debuted on January 14, 2021, and concluded on March 25, 2021. The series was produced by TMS Entertainment, with Shinya Iino as the major director and Yuuichirou Kido as the lead writer.
TMS Entertainment has previously developed follow-up series to anime programs such as ‘Yowamushi Pedal’ and ‘Fruits Basket.’ The producers confirmed ‘Stone Wars’ season 3 on the same day the finale aired.
However, no information is provided about the sequel’s media or genre. Because ‘Dr. Stone’ has been one of the most popular shounen anime in recent years; it is almost certain to continue that format. Seasons 1 and 2 were separated by about 13 months.
As previously said, ‘Stone Wars’ only contains 11 episodes, which explains the short production time. Even if the third season is given the same two-season approach as the first, development should not take two years. In light of this, we may anticipate the release of ‘Dr. Stone’ season 3 in 2022 or early 2023.
Dr. Stone Season 3 Plot
Hyoga and Homura are caught and separated in the ‘Dr. Stone: Stone Wars’ conclusion.
The Kingdom of Science absorbs the Mighty Empire. Senku, realizing that he cannot rescue Tsukasa unless he learns the mysteries of petrification, constructs a freezer appropriate for the stone world and cryosleep the erstwhile Emperor of Might.
Yo becomes a member of the Kingdom of Science and is assigned to Yuzuriha’s crew, which has begun the painstaking task of reconstructing all the sculptures that have been damaged. Senku expresses his desire to construct a spacecraft and track out the source of the petrification beam.
The last scene of ‘Stone Wars’ features a petrified monument of Ryusui Nanami, a figure known for his exceptional navigation abilities. He plays a significant part in the manga’s ‘Age of Exploration’ arc and is expected to do the same in the anime adaptation.
As the season 3 teaser implies, it will most likely begin with an adaptation of the ‘Age of Exploration’ arc from the original manga series. It concludes the ‘Stone Wars Saga’ and starts the ‘Source of Petrification Saga.’
Francois, Ryusui’s devoted butler, may also return in season 3. Senku and the others may reach Treasure Island, home to Byakuya Ishigami and the other astronauts, upon their return to Earth.
There, the Kingdom of Science residents meet the citizens of the Kingdom of Petrification. Season 3 may introduce the Whyman, ‘Dr. Stone’s’ apparent principal nemesis.
