It’s been nearly six months since Radiant last aired and fans are starting to get frustrated at the lack of official release date for season 3.

When season 2 of Radiant concluded back in February 2020, not many thought we would get to this point and still have no official information on the next instalment…but here we are.

The anime is an adaptation of the French comic book series (Manfra) by Tony Valente and was incredibly popular with fans and critics alike.

However, many are now starting to get frustrated with the lack of information surrounding the future of Radiant and when the release date for season 3 could be.

Will there be a third season?

  • At the time of writing, season 3 of Radiant has not been officially confirmed, but it is highly likely to happen at some point in the future.

The original Manfra (French version of Manga) that the anime is based on is still being published, which is always a good sign that the story will continue being adapted for television. Plus, the series remains incredibly popular with both fans and critics alike – no animation studio wants to waste good momentum.

However, there has not been an official confirmation that season 3 will happen, which is rather suspicious considering the second season concluded back in February 2020. We will bring you updates on the future of Radiant when new information is officially announced.

When will Radiant season 3 release?

  • Unfortunately, right now we have no idea when season 3 of Radiant will be released, but it probably won’t be this year.

At the start of 2020, many of us hoped that we would get the third instalment premiering in the fall, but considering the lack of information that doesn’t look likely.

However, as lots of ongoing anime have to do, Radiant is waiting for the original Manga that it is based on to release the next volumes. According to The Cinemaholic, season 2 concluded at the 10th volume of the core material, the issue is that there are only 13 volumes out currently.

We are expecting Valente to release one, if not two, volumes by the end of the year – which would give season 3 five whole chapters to work with.

Considering the Manfra’s release schedule, as well as the global coronavirus pandemic, a realistic expectation would be February 2021, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this was delayed until the summer.
