That Time I got Reincarnated As A Slime officially renewed for Season 3
TenSura began in 2013, and is based fantasy light novel series written by Fuse. It is now regarded as one of the best isekai series of all time. Following the resounding success of the books and their manga adaptation, the first season premiered in 2018, becoming an instant hit, with a second season following in 2021.
When the first film in the series was announced, fans’ attention was entirely focused on this big-screen adaptation. Surprisingly, Season 3 of TenSura was officially announced during an early screening of the film in Japan. This also included the unveiling of a fantastic teaser visual that you can admire below.
The visual features Hinata Sagakuchi, one of Rimuru’s strongest opponents since ascending to the level of Demon Lord.

As the title implies the story will include a conflict between Hinata and Rimuru while both are caught up in a dark scheme to destroy Tempest.
Unfortunately, no other information on Season 3 of TenSura, including a release date or cast, is available at this time. But it’s quite probable that Eight Bit Studios, who produced the previous seasons and the film, will return. Crunchyroll will deliver Season 3 of That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime to Western viewers. So fans of the show should keep an eye out for further announcements in the future.
