Dr. Stone Season 3 Synopsis: What Do We Know So Far?
The series is set in a post-apocalyptic world, 3700 years ago, that is in 2019, when a mysterious flash petrified the entire human race. Suddenly in 5738, a 15-year-old genius, named Senku Ishigami gets out of his petrified state and discovers that with the passage of time, the entire human race has worn down. He decides to study the petrified humans to find out the cause of the incident.
Taiju Oki is an 18-year-old boy who is going to confess his love to his classmate, Yuzuriha Ogawa when suddenly a flash from the sky is seen falling on the ground and turning each and every person into a stone.
After some time, Taiju Oki is also revived and he finds out that his loving friend, Senku has been unpetrified and is trying to find the cause and cure for this disaster. The two friends reunite and now are working together to kick start the entire human civilization once again. Taiju is strong and muscular while Senku is a genius. Working together, they both are able to create a revival potion with the help of nitric acid.
However, as more and more people are revived, we find out that there is a difference in the opinions of the public. Just like this, Tsukasa and Senku become rivals. After a lot of events taking place, we witness that there is a change in the relationship between Senku and Tsukasa.
Now that we have recalled what happened in the previous seasons, let’s check out what and when can we expect from Dr. Stone season 3.
Dr. Stone Season 3 Release Date: When Is It Going To Launch?
As we have already mentioned, the show is based on a manga series. To our delight, the manga series finally concluded in 2022 with 25 volumes. Before disclosing the Dr. Stone Season 3 release date before you, let us tell you that a special episode named “Dr. Stone: Ryusui” is going to be broadcasted in July 2022.`
It has been decided that Dr. Stone Season 3 is going to happen. It was officially announced on March 25, 2021, just after the second season was concluded that the third season will be happening. The makers are yet to announce the official release date but they have confirmed that the fans can expect the next installment sometime around 2023.
As of now, we do not have an exact release date for the show, however, the fans are relieved that Dr. Stone Season 3 won’t be cancelled. Though we are not sure, we can expect it to arrive in the summer of 2023. Fans would not have to wait for long as the show is confirmed plus we are going to get a special episode in the coming July.
Dr. Stone Season 3 Plot: What Will The Storyline Offer To Us?
The second season ended when Senku has to freeze Tsukasa due to some circumstances but he promises him that he will revive him after finding out the cure for petrification and de-petrification. We also find Senku saying that he will reveal the real reason behind the event that happened 3700 years ago and led to the destruction of the entire human race.
From various sources, we have come to a conclusion that Dr. Stone Season 3 will bring up “The petrification saga.” It is suspected that the plot will revolve around Senku and his teammates going on a dangerous journey to find out the cure for petrification and the cure to revive Tsukasa back.
Since the series is based on the manga, we can quite predict the storyline of Dr. Stone Season 3. As the story will move further, it is possible that we will witness an entirely new civilization evolving with the help of science along with Senku and Taiju’s hard work. We may also get to see an intriguing fight between the deadliest enemy Stanley Synder and the science.
However, there are no fixed updates regarding the plot of Dr. Stone Season 3 because of which, we are also unsure but there are chances of some gothic elements being introduced in the plot. We know that you guys are freaking out right now but hold on for some more time and we are confident that the creators won’t disappoint you.
