Attention readers!

Eventually, many questions were raised on social media platforms and fan forums about an early renewal for the third season. Therefore, if you have the same question, you have come to the right place. We’ve compiled a quick summary of everything you need to know about the current status of the series.

Here’s everything we know about Vinland Saga Season 3.

Is Vinland Saga renewed for Season 3?

As of January 2023, the network has yet to formally announce the third season of Vinland Saga. We know that the second season premiered its pilot episode, “Slave,” a few hours ago, and there are 23 more episodes to still air, making it unreasonable to ask for any news or updates about a potential third-season renewal, as it is evidently too soon for any major network to make such a significant statement in such a short period of time. In the meantime, the fans should wait for the show creators to formally verify and acknowledge this information.

We understand your concerns about knowing what’s next in the tale, but you should know that the network may assess its performance and reception before renewing the series for future seasons, and it takes some time. Look at some of the tweets from fans below, which prove that they have been anticipating the second season for some time and have already begun binge-watching all the episodes, increasing the likelihood that the show will be renewed and explore more character arcs and plotlines.

Vinland Saga Season 3 Speculated Release Date and Time Slot

The third season has not been formally verified, so the premiere date has yet to be confirmed, as the status is neither here nor there. If the show is renewed in a few weeks after releasing all 24 episodes, we can predict that the potential release date will have a similar year gap for at least 4 years, just as the previous two chapters did to bring new chapters by completing post-production on time. Of course, this is just speculation! And anything can happen to make the series premiere early; we just have to wait and watch.

The premiere time of the episodes on the streaming platform can be around 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET) for Netflix. In order to receive updates on when Vinland Saga Season 3 premieres, interested viewers can also enable notifications. Until then, fans should keep a close eye on the social media handles of the show to learn about any new updates. In addition to this, for your convenience, we have listed down the different time slots for international viewers below: 

  • Pacific Standard Time: 7:30 am 
  • Central Standard Time: 9:30 am 
  • Eastern Standard Time: 10:30 am 
  • British Standard Time: 3:30 pm 
  • Central European Time: 4:30 pm
  • Indian Standard Time: 9 pm
  • Philippine Standard Time: 11:30 pm 
  • Australia Central Standard Time: 1 am 

Vinland Saga Season 3: What to expect?

As you know, the second season just premiered, making it way too early to speculate about the plotlines when the show’s creators haven’t even made any comments about the third season, so getting any confirmed information about the plot is way too early. But if we have to speculate, the new season, if renewed, is definitely going to pick up from the second season, which follows a new millennium beginning in the southern part of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. After the death of his longtime enemy, Askeladd, Thorfinn lost his purpose in life. He was bought by the landowner Ketil as a “slave” and engaged in land reclamation work on his farm. 

Thorfinn meets a young man there, Einar, who was also a slave like him. The encounter with Einar led Thorfinn to face the sins he had committed and began to find meaning in life. On the other hand, Canute, who became the King of England, attempted to extend his territory for the establishment of “the promised land”. This is “The Story of a True Warrior (Saga)”. “The story of Atonement and Salvation (Saga) “lies beyond the prologue. We’ll just have to wait until the final episode airs on streaming platforms to see how the story concludes and is expanded upon.

On the other hand, the various cast and crew members from the second season are speculated to return in the new season if it is renewed, which includes the director Shuhei Yabuta, who previously confirmed the staff from the first season of Vinland Saga, which was previously animated at WIT Studio, will be returning for the second season “with a deeper understanding of the title.” The staff will be working under MAPPA as the anime studio. The staff members include character designer Takahiko Abiru, scriptwriter Hiroshi Seko, composer Yutaka Yamada, and more.

The cast members of the series include Yuto Uemura (Tamaki Amajiki in My Hero Academia) as Thorfinn, Akio Otsuka (Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid) as Thorkell, Fuminori Komatsu (Jean-Pierre Polnareff in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) as Snake, Kensho Ono (Tetsuya Kuroko in Kuroko’s Basketball) as Canute, Shunsuke Takeuchi (Brawler in Akudama Drive) as Einar, Mayumi Sako (Rikka Sakuragawa in In/Spectre) as Arnheid, Yu Hayashi (Mikey in Tokyo Revengers) as Olmar, Hideaki Tezuka (Tao Yúan in Shaman King) as Ketil, and Taiten Kusunoki (Leonard Burns in Fire Force) as Thorgil.

Vinland Saga Season 3 Episodes and Streaming Options

Although the exact number of episodes for Vinland Saga Season 3 has yet to be announced, if the series is greenlit, we can expect at least 24 episodes, which will be similar to the previous seasons. We would like to highlight that the number of episodes may also vary depending on the theme that the show wishes to convey to the audience if this is the final season. We request that viewers be patient and stream the second season on the platforms available in their region. The next Vinland Saga chapter will be released in Japan before it is released elsewhere. The Japanese television networks Tokyo MX, BS11, and Gifu Broadcasting will be the first to broadcast the season 2 premiere.

It will then make its AT-X premiere at 8 o’clock. The eagerly anticipated anime series will be shown globally on Netflix for the rest of the world. Additionally, season 2 will be accessible on Crunchyroll throughout the CIS nations as well as in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Oceania. Take a look at the official trailer of 1:38 minutes, released earlier on October 24, 2022, by the network, which showcases, “Taking place a year after the events of the first season, the season primarily focuses on a slave from England named Einar as he meets the protagonist, Thorfinn, while working in a farm.”
