Vinland Saga spoilers follow.
Vinland Saga fans are used to hardship, and not just because of everything that Thorfinn Thordarson has had to endure across this truly epic saga.
After season one sailed onto our shores in 2019, fans had to wait four whole years for the second instalment. But boy was it worth the wait. While casual anime fans rave about shows like Demon Slayer (and rightly so), those in the know will be the first to point out how special Vinland Saga is, especially with this essentially perfect second season.
That means Vinland Saga season three is extremely high on our wish list, but will it ever arrive? And if so, when? Grab an axe and also a scrunchy for all that long, scraggly hair as we reveal everything you need to know about Vinland Saga season three.
Vinland Saga season 3 potential release date: When does Vinland Saga season 3 come out?
After Vinland Saga premiered in 2019, the second season wasn’t officially announced until 2022 before it came out in full this year. That means a third season might not be confirmed until 2024 for a 2025 release (as there hopefully won’t be another pesky COVID-related delay).
Less than 100 chapters of Makoto Yukimura’s original manga have been adapted so far, so there’s plenty of story left to tell in a third season and even beyond that too. Here’s hoping then that a renewal actually happens.
Vinland Saga season 3 cast: Who’s in Vinland Saga season 3?
Bar any issues from behind the scenes, expect to see most of these Japanese and English voice actors reprise their roles in Vinland Saga season three:
- Thorfinn Thordarson – Yuto Uemura / Aleks Le (English)
- Einar – Shunsuke Takeuchi / Alejandro Saab (English)
- Canute – Kensho Ono / Griffin Burns (English)
- Thorkell – Akio Otsuka / Patrick Seitz (English)
- Leif Erikson – Yoji Ueda / John Swasey (English)
Even characters long thought gone are also likely to return in flashbacks or nightmare dream sequences, which this show just can’t get enough of.
A host of new voice actors will join the cast too as Thorfinn travels the world, so expect to hear more on this front too as we approach season three’s release.
Vinland Saga season 3 plot: What will happen in Vinland Saga season 3?
After Thorfinn and Einar met as slaves on the Ketil farm in season two, season three should follow their journey in the Eastern Expedition Arc — assuming that the show continues to follow the original manga as closely as it has up until now.
Without spoiling too much here, we can reveal that this third chapter will take place in Greece after a four year time jump. Together, Thorfinn and Einar plan to gather enough wealth and resources to create their own nation free from war at last, but as you might expect, that’s far from an easy task.
If anyone can do it though, it’s our favourite bromance, #Thornar, as we shall refer to them from here on out.
