Jobless Reincarnation Season 3: Is It Officially Renewed?
On March 6, 2022, Studio Bing, the production house behind Jobless Reincarnation, greenlit Mushoku Tensei Season 2. Soon after this news, an anime news leaker, Sugoi LITE, claimed that the studio has plans for Jobless Reincarnation Season 3 (the post has been deleted from X). While neither the studio nor the network has confirmed this news, Sugoi LITE stated that the third season has already been secretly renewed. Well, the official confirmation has yet to drop. However, since the second cour of season 2 is about to be released, fans are hoping that this news holds some ground.
This is because the anime has been one of the most celebrated series from the studio. Mushoku Tensei has received a total of 18 nominations and won seven out of them. Not only this, but the anime has also been a highly critically acclaimed series. The critics have praised it for its joyful and wholehearted approach. Besides this, Jobless Reincarnation has garnered a solid 8.37 stars on MyAnimeList, suggesting that the series is a banger amongst its fans. Hence, considering all the parameters, fans believe Jobless Reincarnation Season 3 is on the cards. But is it?
Well, the studio hasn’t yet confirmed Jobless Reincarnation Season 3 renewal news. Thus, it remains unclear whether or not the series will return. But speaking of Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2, it is expected to release in April 2024. So, following its release, the studio will likely announce the fate of the anime’s future runs.
What Is Jobless Reincarnation Season 3 Production Status? Has It Already Started?
Well, there’s a bittersweet news. As per Sugoi LITE, the anime has already been renewed. In fact, both the seasons (Season 2 Part 2 and Jobless Reincarnation Season 3) were already in the works on May 5, 2021. The following year, the anime news leaker claimed that “one down” the third season was about to be announced. While it gave fans some hope, a key animator cleared that season 3 had never undergone production. In fact, it was never greenlit. The animator also pointed at Sugoi LITE’s mistake and stated that it could be greenlit but not in production.
But after Sugoi LITE, Manga Mogura also stated that both seasons were under production. Such claims quickly made fans wonder whether the third season is happening. Meanwhile, others were concerned about the Jobless Reincarnation Season 3 release date. Currently, the production status stands ambiguous. But Studio Bind’s latest action has made fans come up with several speculations. Bind had recently launched a new production company, VLON. That fans believe was dedicated to Mushoku Tensei. If this is the case, we might learn about the Jobless Reincarnation Season 3 release date in the future.
Blu-Ray Volumes Are Out!
Mushoku Tensei has been following a specific format when it comes to OVA or Blu-Ray. After the first season wrapped up, it dropped the first OVA on March 16, 2022. But before that, the studio dropped four disc volumes that covered the entire split-cour season. The OVA entirely focused on the “Eris The Goblin Slayer” arc that delved deeper into her life. While fans were delighted with this addition, they would be glad to learn that the studio returned with the same format.
After Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 1 wrapped up, the official website announced that Blu-ray volumes for the first cour 25 episodes are all available in Japan. But you don’t need to rush! This is because four Blu-ray volumes will be available to collect from October 18, 2023, to September 18, 2024. As for its OVA, the studio hasn’t yet announced anything regarding it. Further, Bind has yet to reveal about Jobless Reincarnation Season 3.
Is There Enough Source Material?
Unlike other animes, Jobless Reincarnation is not adapted from the manga. Instead, the anime is based on the Light Novel by Rifujin na Magonote. It has twenty-five volumes in total, and the first season has almost covered its six volumes. Meanwhile, the second season has covered the seventh volume. And Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 will likely cover more of the seventh volume. Despite that, there are ample sources to explore in Jobless Reincarnation Season 3.
In fact, the anime can return with more than three seasons. However, there’s a catch! Some of the volumes are currently a subject of controversy as they contain sexual themes. Although the franchise has sold over 13 million copies by June 2023 and is heavily praised for its storyline, such controversy hints at the shortened content. However, one thing to remember is that there are ample sources to come up with the third season. Hence, the studio will soon reveal the Jobless Reincarnation Season 3 release date.
What Will Happen In Jobless Reincarnation Season 3?
The first cour of the second season finale focused on Rudeus and Slyphie’s story arc. Following Slyphie’s confession, Rudeus revealed that he loved her too. However, he couldn’t be with her because of his impotence. It quickly saddened her, but Slyphie sought Luke and Ariel’s help instead of leaving his side. They were touched by her feelings for Rudeus and decided to help them. Luke gifted her a rare and powerful aphrodisiac, and Ariel advised Slyphie on how to make love to him. Surprisingly, with their help, Slyphie and Rudeus succeeded in making love.
While the latter doubted himself, he was surprised to learn that Slyphie was still by his side. It quickly cured his trauma; the emotional surge later cured his impotence. Following this, Rudeus vowed to stay with Slyphie, and later, they ended up together. Now, Jobless Reincarnation Season 3 will focus on their romantic life. It will focus on how they two end up together. But soon, things will turn darker when his ex arrives in town. It quickly challenges his happiness and stability and how he deals with his family. Will he leave Slyphie for her? You will learn it soon.
It currently remains unclear how many volumes Jobless Reincarnation Season 2 Part 2 will cover.

We will update you after the second cour releases in spring of 2024.
