The adventures of Rimuru have turned out to be very entertaining, and fans are already speculating if the series will be renewed yet again for the third season.

So, here’s what we know so far about ‘That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime’ Season 3, along with Release Date, Cast, Plot, and many more. 

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Release Date

After the finale episode of season 2, Eight Bit announced that the series would be getting an anime film which is scheduled to release in the fourth quarter of this year.

This announcement amazed fans who have been expecting that the anime series would get a renewal even though no official announcement has been made yet about the third season of the series.

The series gathered many positive reviews and became so popular that it has a rating of 8.1 out of 10 on IMDB as well as on myanimelist. The first two seasons have been adapted from the sixteen volumes of the light novel series, and still enough material is available to be adapted for another season.

Taking into account that the announcement of the anime film was made soon after the last episode of the second season, we may not see any official announcement about the renewal of the series for its third season until next year and so, we can’t expect any release date as well obviously.

Based on all these scenarios and release patterns of the earlier seasons, even though the series gets renewed for season 3, we can’t expect it to premiere before the middle of 2023.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3 Cast

Though we can expect that most of the cast will be returning from the previous two seasons if the series gets renewed for another season, the directors may not be the same.

Nakayama served as director for season 2 of ‘That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime,’ whereas the first season was directed by Yasuhito Kikuchi.

We can expect all the favorite characters brought to life by the voice actors if the show gets renewed for another season.

We may see some additions or changes to the cast of the third season of the series but we have to wait until the announcement.

What Will Be the Storyline of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 3?

At the end of season 2, we have seen that Clayman has learned several new tricks of his own, which Rimuru finds surprising, in which he utilizes all of his powers against the main protagonist.

During this time, Veldora is involved in a battle with Milim, which makes it just impossible for her to protect Clayman since the demon lord reverses the tables on him. After his waking up, Clayman intensified the powers that led him to look terrifying for a short interval of time, but Rimuru conquered, bringing an end to the battle.

With such an ending, in the third season of the series, we may see Clayman’s failure will have repercussions that will be experienced soon. Having been attacked earlier, Rimuru under the control of Hinata Sakaguchi, captain of the Crusader Troops, The Holy Empire Of Lubelius will have to compete with the probability of retaliation from the protagonist’s soldiers.

Despite the risky political circumstances, Hinata is most probably going to meet with Rimuru personally. A big festival in Rimuru will be organized following the political settlements, and the festival will also have a war tournament.
