But one day, Rin reveals that he and his brother are the sons of Satan. Rin draws the demon-slaying sword Kurikara while witnessing Shiro dying to protect him.

The sword restrains his demonic powers. Not only does Rin control the demonic features like fangs and a tail, but he also restrains the power to ignite into blue flames.

Like his guardian, Rin wishes to become an Exorcist and defeat Satan. That’s why he decided to enroll at the prestigious True Cross Academy. The Academy is an Exorcist cram school that is actually the Japanese branch of the True cross order.

The True Cross order is an international organization dedicated to protecting Assiah from the Gehenna. Surprisingly, Rin finds out that Yukio is already a veteran Exorcist and is one of his teachers.

When is Blue Exorcist season 3 coming out?

On 7 January 2017, the second season Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga got released and continued till 25 March 2017. Between 4 April-4 October 2017, the two OVA episodes under Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga were released.

However yet, there is no news about the announcement of the Blue Exorcist season 3 release date. But you can hope for the new season at how the second season ends.

Also, there is no time constraint. Therefore, you can expect that the officials will announce the release date at any time this year. On the other hand, if it continues to follow the schedule of the two previous seasons, season 3 might be scheduled for April 2022.

Is there enough source material for Blue Exorcist season 3?

The manga is around for decades and turned out 27 volumes. Some other adaptations of the anime remained faithful to the manga in many ways.

Total 12 OVA episodes of both seasons relied on about nine volumes. As I mentioned earlier, there are a total of 27 volumes in the manga. That means creators and writers have enough source material to adapt into season 3.

What can be the storyline of Blue Exorcist season 3?

If we are talking of the renewal of Blue Exorcist, there is enough source material to adapt into season 3. But it will take some time for the announcement of the release date.

Like, Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga took a long time to build enough material to adapt into the second season. If the story of the series follows the manga, the third instalment will be all about Rin and his friends dealing with a group named Illuminati.

Their primary motive is to unleash demons, zombies and resurrect Satan. If you are one of those who read manga before, you must know that Sabutota Todou is a member of this organization.

Blue Exorcist season 3 will also be about witnessing the invention of the Gehenna Gate. Gehenna Gate is a portal between the two worlds, constructed by the Illuminati in the territory.

But the problem arises when they fail to operate the engine accurately. In this case, Exorcists were the only ones who could prevent the portal launch.

But they also fail. As Assiah and Gehenna were in a single world previously, Illuminati is going to unite the two worlds into a single planet. To do that, they have to go through various experiments.

Only Rin and his twin brother Yukio can stop this nuisance.
