After four and a half long years of waiting, it has finally been confirmed that Noragami will return for season 3, but it is not yet clear when the anime will resume.
Noragami is an extremely popular anime produced by the Japanese animation studio Bones and directed by Kotaro Tamura.
The series is based on the manga series that was first published all the way back in December 2010. The manga currently has 21 volumes, with the next instalment of the English version scheduled to be released in November 2020.
Noragami tells the story of Hiyori Iki, a middle school student who is involved in a bus crash after trying to save a stranger. The incidence causes her soul to slip out of her body and she becomes aware of a parallel world where demons and human souls linger.
Season 2 of Noragami was released back in 2015, but there has been no information on when the anime would return until now.
