Kakegurui chronicles the fortunes of students at Hyakkou Private Academy, a school that encourages students to refine their gambling skills, rather than academic achievement or sporting achievements. The worst players suffer great humiliation until Yumeko Jabami steps into the picture. This anime was first released in 2017 (it came to Netflix in 2018), almost exactly four years ago, and has two seasons of 12 episodes under its belt. The second season, called Kakegurui xx, aired in 2019 – so it’s time for the third season to come, now that 2021 has passed.
Do you agree? Even after production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, fans have been waiting for “Kakegurui” to be renewed for the third season. So far, there hasn’t been any announcement made regarding the renewal of Kakegurui Season 3. Here’s what we know so far about this popular anime’s next set of episodes.
Kakegurui Season 3: Release Date
As long as Mappa or Netflix, which is licensed to stream the series outside of Japan, does not announce a solid renewal announcement, it is unclear if “Kakéguri” Season 3 will be returning. Renewals are often based on popularity and the amount of source material available. The Japanese manga series “Kakegurui” was written by Homura Kawamoto and illustrated by Tooru Nomura, and there are now 14 volumes and 82 chapters. So far, the anime has covered 56 episodes which means there’s almost enough for one more season right now.
The first season ended on an original episode, and the end of the second season also diverged from the original (in both cases, a conclusion was created in case the show wasn’t renewed). In that case, there would definitely be three seasons left to air. The series’ popularity is uncertain. Netflix does not disclose viewing statistics. Moreover, the number of fans and ratings do not reflect how many people actually watch. A series renewal today would press the show into production; therefore, a release in 2022 can still be envisioned.
Kakegurui Season 3: Cast
So far, no news about the renewal of Kakegurui’s third season has been released. Therefore, the cast for the series has not yet been decided.

Kakegurui Season 3: Plot
Rei stakes 3 million yen (and her livestock status) on a coin toss, while Yumeko stakes the Jabami name: if she loses, she will be banished from her family and become a Batsubama. Although Yumeko appears to win, she loses a lot of votes in the end by gambling. In the meantime, Kirari takes note of Rei’s determination and lets her become human again with a new name. These threads would presumably be continued in Season 3 of this shonen anime. It is difficult to know how closely events will align with the next chapters of the manga, which include a drama for Mary and the Momobami sisters and more election shenanigans.
Kakegurui Season 3: Trailer
As no news of a third season has been announced, there is no trailer at this time. Any changes will be communicated to you.
