Most reviews it received were positive, and hence, there was no surprise when Gate returned with another part. Directed by Takahiko Kyōgoku and Ryō Andō, the series originally premiered on AT-X, Tokyo MX, and MBS. Though Gate dives into the fantastical world, it has also blended the modern days extremely well.

Is There Any Chance Of Gate Season 3? What Is The Renewal Status?
There has been a huge demand among the fans concerning the third installment. So, its popularity has already made it one of the most-anticipated ventures. However, neither the official team nor the broadcast network has said anything in this regard. Coming to the current status, the future of Gate is uncertain, and we might receive a confirmation in the coming months. Moreover, there are equal chances for the third installment to be renewed or canceled. It has already been more than seven years since we last saw the war between the invaders and the soldiers. Thus, this unexpected gap has significantly reduced the probability of its happening.

But earlier, a couple of reports said that the team was already developing a new batch of episodes. Later on, such speculations turned it to be false and misleading. Moreover, it was evident that viewers faced disappointment following the uncertain gap. They believed that the anime had been almost canceled. But, this is not necessarily possible. Numerous anime series have received a revival after several years, and interestingly, it followed by ten years or more.
What Is Expected To Happen In Gate Season 3?
In the closing chapter of the second season, Itami and the other members are stuck in a difficult situation. Though the entire team reached the Imperial Capital, someone had to help them. However, Pina, Hamilton, and the Emperor managed to tackle the circumstances and escaped successfully. During the escape plan, Pina was stopped and taken to the trial room. Meanwhile, a plan for a battle was being formulated. Zorzal and the giant Ogre were on the same side, but still, the latter could not survive.
Further, Zorzal had to take his control back, and Pina was freed from his authority. The climax was all about the crowning of Pina. In Italica, she was given the special privilege as she became the Crown Princess of the Empire. After then, the princess took a pledge that ensured her participation in the empire’s security. The vow also asked her to maintain peace and harmony between the Empire and Japan. However, Itami did not attend the ceremony and rather went to a doujin convention.
Hopefully, Gate Season 3 will pick up from the point where it finished itself up. Therefore, it will explore the relationship between Pina and Itami. Moreover, an official synopsis is not available that could provide an exact detail about the plot. However, it’s expected to be released soon.
