Fire Force Season 3: What Do We Know So Far?
Before jumping right onto Fire Force season 3, let us quickly recapitulate what we already know from the first two seasons. Adversity took place about 50 years prior to the Solar year 0. Due to this calamity, the whole world was set on fire and many countries got destroyed.
The survivors of this catastrophe found their haven in the Tokyo Empire which was the only land that experienced less impact by the disaster. The ruler of the Tokyo Empire at that time established the faith of the sacred Sol temple. The sacred Sol church and Haijima industries constructed Amaterasu, a thermal power station.
In Tokyo’s Solar year 198, a unique team of fire brigades called Fire Force was formed to fight against the increasing cases of spontaneous human combustion in which human beings got converted into living infernos known as “Infernals.” The infernals were the first-generation people of spontaneous human combustion while the oncoming generations possessed some amount of these powers or the pyrokinesis, however, they remained in their human forms.
The fire force consisted of people with abilities similar to pyrokinesis, brought together from the sacred Sol church, the Tokyo armed forces, and the fire defense company and emerged as eight independent companies. There was a total of eight companies. Company eight’s commander was Akitaru Obi, a brave and compassionate man, and the lieutenant commander was second-generation Hinawa.
The series was focused on Shinra Kusakabe, the protagonist of the show and a third-generation pyrokinetic who earned the name “Devil’s Footprints” due to his power to ignite his feet at his own choice. He enrolled in fire force company 8 and was tasked to kill the infernals and also to look into companies 1 through 7. During his journey in company 8 and fights against the infernals, he got to know the real cause of the mysterious fire that killed his parents. The first two seasons of the show focused on the battles against the infernals.
Fire Force Season 3 Premiere Date: When Will It Be Renewed?
Hurray! There is a good news for the fans!
After so many months of wait, Fire Force Season 3 has been finally confirmed by David Productions on May 16, 2022. Given the huge fanbase created by the show, it was obvious that the makers would surely come up with a brand new season soon.
The author of the manga, Atsushi Ohkubo stated that the manga series was almost nearing its end and eventually, the final chapter of the series was released on February 22, 2022. After the release of the manga’s last episode, fans have suspected that there will certainly be Fire Force Season 3.
Although the release has been officially confirmed, there are no updates regarding the cast, storyline and other details. So, when would we get to see the show back on our screens? Since it has been officially announced, we should be expecting the Fire Force Season 3 release date to be around the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023.
Fire Force Season 3 Plot: How Will The Storyline Progress?
As of now, no information has been provided to us about the plot. Therefore, Fire Force Season 3 plot is still not certain. But since the anime series has followed the manga till now, it is speculated that it will continue to do the same in the third season as well. The first two seasons followed the manga’s chapters of volume 20. Fire Force Season 3 will most likely adapt the remaining volumes.
The first season included mind-blowing twists, for instance, when it revealed that infernals were not the result of spontaneous human combustion, the white-clad organization was exposed. Some powerful characters like Shinra, Akitaru, and Captain Hinawa were in the lead roles in the first season.
The second season was a memorable one. It included notable incidents such as the strengthening of Shinra and Arthur via rigorous training, Captain Hague’s death, and the inspection of the Nether. The scenes where Shinra and Charon fought for the Inca were breathtaking. In the end, Inca joined White-clad leading to Arthur’s disappointment.
The ending of the second season gives us a little peek into the storyline of Fire Force Season 3. The third season might come up with a large-scale battle between Company 8 and the infernals. We found Shinra training rigorously in order to fight his company’s increasing enemies. Company 4’s Captain Hague’s death was a significant plot twist in the second season. The third season might pick up exactly from where the second season left. Company 8 might team up with the Tokyo Empire to undertake the Evangelist’s forces.
