The extensive production times associated with such action-packed shonen shows and the anime nearly catching up with the manga in 2020 might be contributing to this long wait. Given these challenges, projections indicate that the series might not return before spring 2024. Furthermore, circulating rumors hint at a potential change in animation studios – with David Production possibly handing the reins over to Studio Shaft.
Who Will Be Voicing Our Favorite Characters?
Die-hard fans of the series will be pleased to know that their beloved characters from Company 8 are expected to return. Here’s a refresher on the voice talents behind these iconic characters:

Plot Expectations: What Lies Ahead?
Faithfully following Atsushi Ohkubo’s manga, the Fire Force anime offers some predictability in terms of plot direction. The unresolved Stigma arc from season two is anticipated to find closure in the upcoming season, setting the stage for an intense showdown between Shinra, the Fire Force brigade, and The White-Clad’s leaders.
A major storyline, titled ‘Obi’s Rescue’, will potentially dominate the narrative. This arc focuses on the heroes of Company 8 rallying against their very own allies to save Captain Obi from imprisonment.
Considering that the first two seasons covered up to chapter 174 of the manga, encompassing roughly two-thirds of the entire content, season three might serve as the grand finale, given the manga concluded with chapter 304 in February 2022.
Awaiting the First Glimpse
