Vinland Saga Anime: Is Season 3 on the Horizon?

The success of the first two seasons in 2019 and 2023 has fans of the Vinland Saga anime eagerly awaiting news of a potential Vinland Saga Anime Season 3. If you’re one of them, here’s everything we know so far.

The Story Behind Vinland Saga

The “Vinland Saga” anime draws inspiration from the incredible 27-volume historical manga series of the same name, created by Makoto Yukimura. This beloved Norse mythology epic follows the story of Thorfinn, a young man consumed by his quest for revenge against his father’s killer. His journey forces him to take a morally complex path, working for the very target of his vengeance, Askeladd. Though vengeance is his initial goal, Thorfinn finds himself entangled in Askeladd’s schemes and caught up in the brutal wars of the era. As the story unfolds, Thorfinn grapples with his anger and vengeance, while Askeladd’s true motivations remain shrouded in mystery.

What We Know So Far

“Vinland Saga” has aired two seasons so far. Shūhei Yabuta directed these seasons, animated by Studio Wit (Season 1) and MAPPA (Season 2).  We don’t have confirmation yet if the same crew will return for a potential new season.

Season 2 wrapped up in Japan in June 2023, and the show’s popularity has exploded ever since. Naturally, everyone’s wondering when we’ll see Vinland Saga Season 3, Episode 1.

So, Will There Be a Season 3?

While there’s no official green light for Season 3 yet, don’t despair!  “Vinland Saga” took a long break after Season 1, only returning in 2023 (announced in 2022). There’s precedent for these extended hiatuses, so fans shouldn’t lose hope.

The good news: the anime has proven financially successful. While Blu-ray sales weren’t stellar, the latest manga volume rocketed past 100,000 copies sold. Plus, the anime is a hit on streaming platforms, further boosting its profitability. This strong financial performance strengthens the case for Season 3.

We also have plenty of material left! The first two seasons only covered volumes 1 to 14 of the manga, leaving enough story for roughly two more seasons. Rest assured, Season 3 is a strong possibility, potentially arriving between late 2024 and 2026.

I’ll keep this post updated if we get any official news on the  ‘Vinland Saga’ Twitter account.
