SPICE AND WOLF SEASON 3: WILL IT EVER COME OUT?
Unfortunately, despite public demand and countless petitions, the makers himself have previously said he’s not interested in creating season 3. Hasekura’s statement was a huge heartbreaker for fans. Nevertheless, they remain hopeful.
We hate to burst fan bubbles, but there’s a high chance that these dreams will never come to reality. The manga-based anime world operates in a very different system. The anime series are often created as a sort of marketing tool to drive more sales for the manga. The more popular the anime series is, the more mangas can be sold.
Hasekura has continued to create more novel series for Spice and Wolf. The latest one released in 2019 without any anime television series in place.
Since, 2016, ASCII Media Works has published three volumes of a spin-off light novel series titled Wolf and Parchment. It looks like they don’t need another anime series to back up the sales of their novel series anymore.
Now that the light novels have begun publishing again, there’s still some hope for Spice and Wolf season 3. For, now the only way to get into Spice and Wolf’s world again is through the novel series.
SPICE AND WOLF SEASON 3: IS THERE ENOUGH SOURCE MATERIAL?
Season one of the anime debuted with 13 episodes back in 2008. It consumed the plot of the first two LN volumes. Whereas, the second installment of the series returned in 2009, and covered Volumes 3 and 5 of the light novel. However, the Spice and Wolf light novel series has a whopping total of 22 volumes, as of December 2019. Therefore season 3 still has more than enough source material to adapt.
SPICE AND WOLF: SPIN-OFF SERIES?
It’s been 10 years since we last heard of the anime series, so it’s far to doubt its future. However, If not a complete season, Spice and Wolf can still return in the form of a spin-off series. The popular LN series has a spin-off light novel series of its own. It’s titled Wolf and Parchment and has a total of 4 volumes as of March 2018.
Although, as per the current trend, any production company can pick up projects that have potential. Well as of now fans can only hope that another studio and platform picks up Spice and Wolf season 3 and the Wolf and Parchment spin-off.
SPICE AND WOLF SEASON 3: RELEASE DATE
As of now, neither of the companies related to the production of the anime has spoken about the possibility of a season 3. However, ever since the light novel series resumed, chances for the anime’s return have increased. Yet, even If the green signal comes right away, Spice and Wolf Season 3 or a spin-off might not return anytime earlier than 2021 or 2022.
