Dr. Stone Season 3 Release Date Status Update: When Is The New Season Coming Out?


Someone’s podiatrist may go by the name of Dr. Stone somewhere out there, but in the world of anime, he’s one of the newest heroes to emerge on the scene and win over the hearts of anime fans around the world. It takes place thousands of years in the future after a mysterious event renders almost all of humanity stone in the manga adaptation “Dr. Stone.” Then one day, Senku, a brilliant adolescent, comes back to life. His old friend Taiju soon follows suit, and the two of them collaborate on a plan to resurrect the rest of humanity when they are not busy fending for their lives against lions and poisonous gases like those described in the book.

Even if the science doesn’t always add up, it doesn’t have to when the plot is as compelling as it is. Over the course of the last two seasons, many mysteries have been left unsolved. Fortunately, Season 3 has been confirmed by the release of a new trailer, which promises that even more will be revealed in the coming season. Season 3 of “Dr. Stone” will feature the following developments.

Dr. Stone Season 3 Release Date

In a leak from the latest Weekly Shonen Jump issue, published on December 16, 2021, it was confirmed that the new Dr. STONE Season 3 anime will begin airing sometime in 2023, according to the source.

This information was officially confirmed on December 19, 2021, at Jump Festa 2022, which took place in Las Vegas. The biggest surprise was the announcement that an OVA episode of Dr. STONE will be released in 2022.

Dr. Stone Season 3 Cast

The voice casts for both dubs of “Dr. Stone” are expected to remain largely the same going into Season 3 of the series. If you’re looking for the Japanese dub, that should mean Yûsuke Kobayashi (“Food Wars”) and Makoto Furukawa (“One Punch Man”) lending their voices to the characters of Senku and Taiju, respectively. Among those who have contributed to the English dubs are Aaron Dismuke (“Fullmetal Alchemist”) and Ricco Fajardo, who has lent his voice to Senku and Taiju, respectively (“Sky Wizard Academy”).

Manami Numakura, Gen Satô, and Ayumu Murase are among the Japanese voice actors who are expected to reprise their roles for “Dr. Stone” Season 3 and voice a variety of new characters. Brandon McInnis, Felecia Angelle, and Brittany Lauda are among the English voice actors who have appeared on the show on a regular basis. Given that Season 3 appears to be taking the characters into new and unexplored territory (both literally and metaphorically), fans can expect to see some new faces and hear some new voices as the season progresses.

Dr. Stone Season 3 Plot

When you watch the “Dr. Stone” Season 3 trailer, you might be forgiven for thinking you’ve stumbled upon a previously unreleased episode of “One Piece,” but rest assured that the tease was simply indicating that Senku and his comrades will embark on a seafaring adventure up next. The “Age of Exploration” arc will be the next one to be adapted for the anime, according to ComicBook.com. This is the time when they construct the mighty ship Perseus and set sail around the world in the hope of uncovering more information about what exactly caused humanity to turn to stone. The process leads to the development of numerous other innovations that will aid them in their efforts to restore humanity to its former glory.

Since 2017, the manga has been ongoing, and there are no signs that it will be stopping any time soon. When speaking with Anime News Network, writer Riichiro Inagaki mentioned the following: “So, as far as the conclusion is concerned, I’m not sure, and this isn’t necessarily related to the story. Our general understanding of how the storey will conclude itself, but as we’ve progressed through it, we’ve found ourselves taking three steps forward and two steps back… but I’m determined to see it through to the end. However, one thing I can guarantee is that I would never put off a project simply for the sake of the company.”

While “Dr. Stone” may not be able to last indefinitely like some other anime, we’re confident that Season 3 will not be the end of the road for fans.
