Knights of Sidonia – Will There Be Season 3?
It’s been a pretty long period since Season 2 of Knights of Sidonia finished and there is still no news on Season 3. It’s anime co-director and manga creator Hiroyuki Seshita and Tsutomu Nihei once considered the possibility of making the third part of the popular TV series. Nihei expressed his great wish for it to happen, while Seshita hesitated a bit complaining about the lack of time he has for making it happen, but then said he would definitely do it.
If we take a look at all the facts about the series, we can draw a clear conclusion that there is no reason for us not to have another season. Firstly, it is the first anime ever on Netflix, and it turned out to be a success. Secondly, even Metal Gear Solid creator praised it, which he doesn’t do so often. Thirdly, it is highly popular among viewers. Its first season came out on July 4, 2014, and the second one year later – July 3, 2015. This July passed without another season, but we hope it won’t be the case for July 2017.
Knights of Sidonia Plot
The story of the series is set in the distant future, in the year 3394. It follows a sole ship struggling to survive the consequences of the Earth’s destruction. They are trying to escape a race of shapeshifting aliens who are the ones who destroyed it. Sidonia – the ship has a population of more than 500,000 people who may be the last humans.
Knights of Sidonia Season 3 Release Date
All things considered, a new season seems pretty inevitable, or at least that is what it looks like to us. Its great significance to viewers, as well as to Netflix and to anime in general hopefully leads to Season 3. We are definitely looking forward to it happening and anticipating its release date to be July 2017, so stay tuned for new information.
