It’s been eleven years since Season 2 of Is This a Zombie premiered in Japan. Fans have eagerly been waiting for season 3. Here’s everything we know so far regarding Is This a Zombie Season 3. 

Is This a Zombie, also known as KoreZom in Japanese is a comedy series with a touch of supernatural and romance. The anime series is based on a light novel series by Shinichi Kimura. 

Since 2009, 19 volumes of the manga series have been published. The manga has been adapted into a TV series by Studio Deen. Season 1 of the show premiered in 2011 and season two titled Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? Of the Dead aired in 2012. 

Since then, fans have eagerly been waiting for season 3 of the show, as the second season had fewer episodes, and fans want the continuation of the story. 

But, will Studio Deen fulfill the demand of fans for Is This a Zombie Season 3. Here’s everything we know so far. 

Will There Be ‘Is This A Zombie’ Season 3? Canceled or Renewed

Will There Be ‘Is This A Zombie’ Season 3 Canceled or Renewed

After 11 years, there is still no official word regarding Season 3 of Is This A Zombie from the creators. Chances are we might be getting new seasons of the TV show, but it is not completely impossible. 

The first and second seasons of the anime aired in 2011 and 2012 respectively. It was rumored back then that the company ran out of source material for season 3 which is why it was never renewed. 

However, if we look at the manga series, it ended in 2015. So, it’s been more than seven years since the light novel ended. Meaning, there was plenty of source material that could be translated into the anime but was not taken up by Studio Deen. 

If Studio Deen decides to create a new season, it won’t be a problem as there is plenty of source material to be covered. 

The first and second seasons of the show only adapted the first ten light novels. Therefore, the last nine novels can be translated into a third season if the anime gets greenlighted. 

Although it has been a long time since the second season, Twitter is still updated as fans are eagerly waiting for a new season. 

There is plenty of discussions online along with otaku art and fan pages dedicated to the anime.

Another anime of Studio Deen, KonoSuba is also in the dark regarding a season 3. There are rumors that the studio does not create three seasons of the anime, so we can only hope that ‘Is This A Zombie’ does not get the same treatment. 

Until then, we can watch the first two seasons and patiently wait for a new season.
