Zombie Land Saga Season 3 Release Date; Will Sakura Win The Title She Wants?

Zombie Land Saga is an original Japanese anime TV series directed by Munehisa Sakai. It is a comedy-horror anime that follows a young girl named Sakura Minamoto who wants to become a singer. She is prepped and ready to submit her application to a singing competition when she is abruptly killed by a truck on that same morning. Ten years later, a man named Kotaro Tatsumi decides to “revive” Sakura and six other “legendary” girls from different time periods. The catch here is, he revives them as zombies! They will later learn that the reason he wanted to revive them was to make them form a musical band known as Franchouchou. He does this to revitalize Saga Prefecture’s dwindling idol culture. Zombie Land Saga is the story of Sakura and Franchouchou and how they perform in the competition whilst hiding their zombie faces with makeup and trying not to get exposed.

Anime shows are usually adaptations of manga series. In this case, it was the other way round. Both Zombie Land Saga and Zombie Land Saga Revenge, which is its sequel, are anime originals. Later on, manga adaptations of these were made and released on Cygames’ Cycomi website. The manga series did well too. There are 4 volumes out as of now and it is still ongoing. The fans however are waiting for a Zombie land Saga Season 3.

The Zombie Land Saga anime is written by Shigeru Murakoshi. It is created by MAPPA studios, Avex Pictures and Cygames. Music is by Yasaharu Takanashi and Japanese pop-rock band Funta7.

Zombie Land Saga Season 2

Zombie Land Saga: Revenge ended on 24th June 2021 with 12 episodes. It did very well and got great reviews. It is highly rated on IMDb with a rating of 7/10, 7.5/10 on MyAnimeList, and 4.9/5 as per Google reviews.

Franchouchou has been trying to achieve world fame for 2 seasons now. However, they still haven’t quite gotten there.

Season 2 ended with a cliffhanger which is the perfect setup for season 3.

What Do We Know About Zombie Land Saga Season 3?

There is no official renewal announcement as of now. However, it is expected quite soon. There was a year and a half long gap between seasons 1 and 2, so we can expect to see season 3 sometime in late 2022 and possibly early 2023 considering how long it takes to produce an anime show. Hopefully, it will be the former, and fans of the show won’t be made to wait that long.

Expected Plot For Zombie Land Saga Season 3

In the last few episodes of season 2, Franchouchou gave one of their best performances ever. They got huge applause and it built some hope in the residents of Saga Prefecture. Things do not look good for Kotaro though. He was seen coughing and seemed to be ill but he keeps this a secret from everybody. At the end of the last episode, we saw a spaceship before the episode came to an end.

The girls haven’t achieved world fame yet either so we expect that to happen (finally) in Zombie Land Saga season 3.

This ending was left open to interpretation. What we think is, season 3 will include aliens. Maybe aliens will be the antagonists of the season. Fans have a lot of exciting theories but we’ll have to wait and watch!
