The rest of season 2 of “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” (Tensei shitara Slime Datta Ken) ended in September of last year, and we’ve been thinking about season 3 for a while now.
One of the most popular isekai today is the anime series based on the light novel series by Fuse. It’s about Rimuru, a man who dies and comes back to life as a slime in another world.
Since Rimuru’s adventures have been so entertaining, it’s not surprising that fans are already wondering if there will be more movies based on them in the future.
Let’s talk about what we know so far about season 3 of “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime,” such as the cast, the release date, the plot, predictions, and more.
Here is what we know.
Is There Going to Be a Third Season of “That Time I Became a Slime?”
On July 6, 2021, new episodes of “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime” came out, and the show ran until September 21, 2021. But the anime is not yet in its third season. Instead, it was the second part of Season 2’s split-cour. As of this writing, “That Time I Became a Slime” has still not been picked up for a third season.
One of the most popular animes is called “That Time I Was Reborn as a Slime.” On MyAnimeList, the second season has a score of 8.40/10, which is amazing. Fans of the anime come from all over the world in large numbers. People want a third season because of this.
Now that season 2 is over, Eight Bit might soon announce a third season. But there are also times when anime shows go for a long time without announcing a new season.

We hope that this won’t happen with “That Time I Came Back as a Slime.” There is a lot of source material from which to choose. There are 19 books in the light novel series, and the anime hasn’t even gotten to half of them yet.
When Will Season 3 of “That Time I Became a Slime” Come Out?
We still don’t know for sure that Season 3 will happen, so all we can do for now is guess based on a few clues. The anime’s first season, which has 24 episodes, started airing on October 5, 2018, and ended on March 22, 2019.
The second season came out in two separate parts. From January 12 to March 30, 2021, the first 12 episodes of season 2 were shown. The second split cour came out on July 6, 2021, and ended in September, as expected.

The last episode of season 1 came out almost 2 years before the first episode of season 2. Also, there is an anime movie coming out in the fall of 2022. So, the most likely time for the third season to come out is in 2023.
What is the Plot of ‘that Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime’ Season 3?
In the last episode of season 2, called “Octagram,” Rimuru fights the demon lord Clayman for the last time. Clayman’s awakening has given him new abilities that make him even more dangerous.
Still, the episode ends on a good note because Rimuru wins the fight.
If season 3 gets the go-ahead, we think it will pick up after the epic battle, assuming that the next movie will be a new story and not a sequel.
The ending of the light novel Volume 6: The Octagram Soars Brightly is the same as the ending of the last episode of season 2.
Based on how fast the anime moves and how the second season ended, the third season will probably start with Volume 7.
Here is a summary of what Volume 7 is about:
“A brave glob in trouble! The Holy Empire of Lubelius is shook to its core by the news that Rimuru beat the demon lord Clayman. This is especially true since Hinata Sakaguchi, the leader of the Imperial Guard and captain of the Crusader forces, just attacked Rimuru in a brave move.
When Rimuru sends a priest to an important meeting of Lubelius leaders and that priest is killed, things look even worse. When Hinata goes to Tempest to settle things, the stakes couldn’t be higher for either side. If she makes a mistake, it could lead to all-out war.”
Who Is Cast In ‘That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime’ Season 3?
The only person who changed between seasons was the director. The rest of the cast stayed the same. Yasuhito Kikuchi was the director for season 1, but Atsushi Nakayama took over as the new director for season 2.
If the anime gets a third season, the main voice actors will probably still be there to bring the characters to life.
For the Japanese dub, Miho Okasaki plays the slime Rimuru, Megumi Toyoguchi plays the Great Sage, Asuna Tomari plays the hobgoblin Gobta, Chikahiro Kobayashi plays the wolf-like Ranga, Mao Ichimichi plays the ogress Shion, and Kanehira Yamamoto plays the goblin leader Rigurd.
Brittney Karbowski plays Rimuru, Mallorie Rodak plays Great Sage, Ryan Reynolds plays Gobta, Tyson Rinehart plays Ranga, Michelle Rojas plays Shion, and Kent Williams plays Rigurd for the English dub.
