It’s been nearly one year since the second season of Radiant concluded, but will the anime be renewed and what date could season 3 potentially release?
When season 2 of Radiant concluded back in February 2020, not many thought we would get to this point and still have no official information on the next instalment…but here we are.
The anime is an adaptation of the French comic book series (Manfra) by Tony Valente and was incredibly popular with fans and critics alike.
However, many are now starting to get frustrated with the lack of information surrounding the future of the Radiant anime.
Radiant season 3…
- At the time of writing, Radiant has not been officially renewed for season 3, but the anime is likely to return at some point in the future.
The original Manfra (French version of Manga) that the anime is based on is still being published, which is always a good sign that the story will continue being adapted for television.
Plus, the series remains incredibly popular with both fans and critics alike – no animation studio wants to waste good momentum.
Unfortunately, there has not been any official confirmation that season 3 will happen, which has fueled speculation about the fate of the series – especially considering the second season concluded back nearly a year ago.
The concern is that Studio Lerche may have shifted their focus to other projects.
However, following the recently released Given movie, which the studio animated, there is a hope that the studio could now concentrate their efforts on the third season of Radiant.
We will bring you updates on the future of Radiant when new information is officially announced.
When could Radiant season 3 release?
At the time of writing, there is no information available on when Radiant season 3 could premiere. Considering the lack of news surrounding the series, it looks highly unlikely that the anime will return anytime soon.
Production on season 3 may be waiting until more volumes of the original source material can be published.
According to The Cinemaholic, season 2 concluded at the 10th volume of the source material; the issue is that there are only 14 volumes currently published – with volume 15 is scheduled to release in March 2021,
Considering the Manfra’s release schedule, as well as the global pandemic and Lerche’s schedule, a realistic expectation would be a Fall or Winter 2021 premiere.
This article will be updated as soon as more information on Radiant season 3 is revealed.
