Goblin Slayer Season 3 Release Date

At the time of writing this article, Goblin Slayer Season 3 has not been announced yet, and hence we do not have a clear release date.

Fans might be fearful of a long hiatus as there was nearly a 5 year of break between the first and second seasons with only one movie in between.

However, since this hiatus can be attributed to the change in studios from White Fox to Liden Films, we can expect the third season of the anime to arrive as soon as 2025.

Goblin Slayer Story

Goblin Slayer Story

Goblin Slayer’s story is exactly what one expects it to be when hearing the title. It starts by following a priestess and her party who go adventuring but find themselves on the verge of death after being attacked by goblins.

When all hope seems to be lost, a mysterious man in armor shows up and brutally kills the goblins.

Known as the Goblin Slayer, he lives his life solely for the sake of killing these creatures and shows no mercy when it comes to fighting them.

The anime follows his story as he gradually forms allies who join his adventures where they face all sorts of enemies and strengthen their bonds in the process.

Goblin Slayer Source Material

Goblin Slayer Manga

Both the Goblin Slayer anime and manga are based on its light novel which is still ongoing. With over 16 volumes of content, the anime can adapt more than 2 seasons after this with its pacing.

What will be the storyline of Goblin Slayer Season 3?

While the Goblin Slayer anime has a habit of not directly following the source material and mixing up arcs, the way it is currently going, we can predict that the third season will start by adapting the 9th volume of its light novel.

This will follow Goblin Slayer joining Cow Girl on an expedition when they are attacked by Goblins. This doesn’t seem to be a random attack, however, as larger forces might be at play behind the scenes.
