Assassination Classroom, also known as Ansatsu Kyōshitsu, is a popular Japanese anime based on a manga series of the same name by Yūsei Matsui. The Japanese Sci-Fiction Series has been very popular and remained one of the hit anime among the fans. As season 2 of the original anime concluded back in 2016, and there has been a gap of 5 years now, so the fans are wondering whether there will be an Assassination Classroom Season 3 or not.
The initial release of the manga happened back in 2012, and it was considered one of the most popular manga at that time. Even it has got an award for the critically acclaimed award for best mange series. Three years after the release of the manga Studio Lerche produced an anime adaptation series for this, which was titled Assassination Classroom.
It was first released back in 2015, and with that, it has become very popular among fans. The final season of Assassination Classroom concluded in 2016. After that, it has been five years now, and still, the fans are wondering whether there will be a season 3 of Assassination Classroom. So to answer all the queries today in this article, we will discuss all the updates associated with it.
Assassination Classroom Season 3 Release Date: Will there be Assassination Classroom Season 3?
Assassination Classroom/Ansatsu Kyōshitsu season 2 premiered back on January 8, 2016, and it concluded on January 30, 2016. After that, it has been more than five years. Still, there is no news whether the anime will get a follow-up a season or not. As per the update, season 2 of the anime series was the concluding season because the story ended with the death of Koro Sensei.
After that, they also released the sci-fi action anime film ‘Assassination Classroom:365 Days’ which was a massive hit in Japan back in 2016, but after that, the studio Lerche hasn’t revived the anime series for a third season. So as it stands as of now Assassination Classroom Season 3 hasn’t been renewed for a third season.
Assassination Classroom/Ansatsu Kyōshitsu Season 3 although was expected to get a season 3 during 2016 considering it had enough source material for season 2, but it wasn’t renewed after season 2.
While it sounds discouraging that the chances of Assassination Classroom Season 3 are zero now, but we are still hopeful that the series might return for a season 3 as the anime series is very profitable for Studio Lerche. So maybe in the future, they might revive the series for a third season, but as of December 2021, Assassination Classroom Season 3 hasn’t been revived for a season 3 yet
If revived the Assassination Classroom Season 3 might arrive by the end of 2022 or 2023. If we receive any news on season 3 of Assassination Classroom, we will update this part of your article.
Assassination Classroom/Ansatsu Kyōshitsu: What is It About?
Assassination Classroom/Ansatsu Kyōshitsu is a sci-fi story based on the manga of the same name, which Yūsei Matsui has written, and studio Lerche has produced the anime series. The show starts with a massive lunar explosion from where a tentacled monster says he is responsible for the explosion. The yellow tentacled monster was later named Koro Sensei.
So Koro, after appearing suddenly after the explosion, holds the government and says he will destroy the earth next year with a similar type of explosion. Then he strikes a deal with the government that he will delay the blast in return; he asks for an unusual offer. He wants to be in a teaching position at the prestigious Kunugigaoka Junior High School.
Although the Military at first wasn’t on board with his idea, later on, they find that they cannot defeat Koro, so to delay his plans of destroying the earth, they agree to grant his teaching position in the Kunugigaoka Junior High School.
Then begins the great story of Assassination Classroom, where Koro Sensei was granted the position of teacher for the students of Class 3-E, which is said to be the worst batch of all. He plans to teach students how to assassinate him and excel in their studies or interest as well.
Although the Class 3-E students are misfits, they are under the hierarchy of the Kunugigaoka Highschool; even if they are not allowed to visit the main campus, they are usually transferred to an old vacant campus on the city’s outskirts. They also have personal problems which affect their minds as well, for which most of them are clueless about what they want to do in the future.
After Koro takes over their role as a teacher some government officials also visited the school and told them that if Class-3E are successful in assassinating Koro then they will give them a reward of 10 billion YEN.
Hence there after all everyone wants to assassinate Koro Sensei and get the 10 billion Yen to live their dream lives.
Soon after taking his position as the teacher, Koro-sensei fits into his new role by treating all the students with respect and tries to help them overcome their problems.
As they grow under the supervision of Koro, they realize this is probably the best teacher they have ever had. Class 3-E soon excels in their studies as well, and after the semester break, they all also go on an excursion tour as well, and by the time they return from the vacation, they now plan how to assassinate Koro Sensei.
Because as per Koro Sensei’s plan, he still wants to destroy the earth in March next year and the only reason he was given the teacher position in the school was to teach the student how to assassinate himself as well.
But then things get complicated now as the young students as assassins have a mixed feeling now whether they want to kill the best teacher they ever had also some of them still tries to bomb Koro sensei’s head.
But others are not sure if they’re going to kill Koro Sensei. Plus, they also had to deal with the complex educational structure in Kunugigaoka, where the principal doesn’t like students of Class 3-E of Kunugigaoka Junior High School as well.
Despite all the obstacles, the group continues to work together and finally decides to plot a final assassination plan where they have noted every weakness of Koro Sensei. With Koro being weakened after fighting his trained, powerful assassins, the students decide to land the final blow, and they successfully assassinate Koro Sensei.
But the story doesn’t end there; the show was slated to come back for a season 3 where the best teacher/monster Koro Sensei was supposed to be resurrected as a demon king. He then was set to return to earth again with his new plans. But as the studio hasn’t revived the series for a third season, it seems unlikely to happen now.
Assassination Classroom Season 3: What to Expect?
Although season 3 of Assassination Classroom hasn’t been revived yet, if it ever happens, it will be going to pick up the story just after the events of season 2. Maybe in season 3, we will be able to witness the original story that is Koro-Sensei’s Origin story. So far on this lucrative series of Assassination Classroom, we are still not aware of the real reason behind the appearance of Koro-sensei.
