When it first came out, Blue Exorcist was a huge hit. Rin Okumura and his twin sister Yukio, who was raised by their adoptive exorcist father, are the main characters in the action anime series based on Kazue Kato’s manga.
The first season of anime started in 2011, and the second season started in 2012. The “Kyoto Saga” grew out of the first season, which was followed by a movie and a second season. Fans of Blue Exorcist have wondered if Rin will have any more adventures killing demons if the show gets a third season.

Blue Exorcist Season 3 Release Date
On November 27, 2010, Shueisha’s Jump Square website said that the manga would be made into an anime. The anime was made by A-1 Pictures, and Hitoshi Okamura was the producer. The series was supposed to replace Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto on MBS on April 10, 2011. However, the March 11 Thoku earthquake and tsunami caused the broadcast to be moved to April 17. The last episode of the anime was on October 2, 2011.
Between the show’s first and second seasons, there was a long break. Fans of the first season of “Kyoto Saga” had to wait five years for the second season to air in 2017. There is still a chance for a third season, even though a lot of time has passed since the first two. The next Blue Exorcist anime episode, which is set to come out in 2022 or 2023, doesn’t seem out of place with the rest of the series.
Another thing that could affect the third season is how well the manga sells. Crunchyroll says that the manga has sold more than 15 million copies as of 2016. This Anime News Network article says that when the Blue Exorcist anime series first came out, it helped manga and paperback book sales a lot.
With the start of a new season, sales of the manga, which is now being shown, may also go up. When it comes to manga, there are a lot of stories that could be used in the next season of the anime show. The program has already used important parts of the manga’s story from the first volume. So, manga volumes 10 and 11 are likely to be the first ones in season 3.
Blue Exorcist Season 3 Plot
Rin Okumura is the main character of the book. He and his twin brother Yukio Okumura were raised by the exorcist Father Shiro Fujimoto. Rin finds out one day that he and Yukio are the devil’s children. When Rin sees Shiro die to save him, he pulls the Kurikara, which stops him from using his demon powers. From then on, Rin starts to change into a demon, getting fangs and a tail and being able to burst into blue flames that can destroy almost anything they touch.
Rin wants to become an Exorcist like his guardian so he can get stronger and beat Satan. He joins the True Cross Academy, which is a well-known exorcist boot camp, and the Japanese branch of the True Cross Order, a worldwide group that works to protect Assiah from Gehenna.
Rin is shocked to find out that Yukio is one of his professors and an experienced Exorcist. Rin starts his journey to become an exorcist with his brother and some classmates who quickly become his close friends.
