In Beastars season 2, Legoshi meets Tem’s murderer, but what’s next for the confused young wolf and the rest of the pupils at Cherryton Academy? Now that Studio Orange and Netflix have confirmed a third season of Beastars, here’s everything we know about the forthcoming anime’s plot and premiere date.
The anime adaptation of Paru Itagaki’s manga series Beastars features a cast of humanoid herbivores and carnivores living together in harmony. Some predators give in to their urges to eat prey species, hence despite appearances, violence and class warfare persist in this apparently civilized society. Legoshi is a shy teenage grey wolf who is having trouble reconciling his amorous affections for Haru, a white dwarf rabbit, with his natural predatory tendencies. While all is going on, Legoshi is searching for the predator who savagely slaughtered his friend Tem, an alpaca.
Though Beastars season 2 wrapped up the story of Tem’s death, the manga’s 196 chapters still raise many questions. A preview of Season 3 of Beastars follows.
Beastars Season 3 Renewal Status
The howling of Beastars fans is warranted. The third and last season of the Netflix anime sensation has begun production, according to the show’s official Twitter account. The second season of Beastars, a Netflix Original with worldwide distribution rights, will premiere shortly. Fans of the program have been waiting for its comeback with great anticipation. After a lengthy wait, the show’s comeback has finally been confirmed, however, the next season won’t air until 2024.
Beastars Season 3 Cast
Jonah Scott plays Legoshi
Legoshi, the series’ grey wolf protagonist, is a kind soul who, owing to his imposing stature, has been the target of the dread and loathing of the other animals. Legoshi’s mixed emotions for the white dwarf rabbit cause him to further repress his predatory inclinations, but he quickly gains the acceptance of the pupils at Cherryton Academy, especially Haru.
Lara Jill Miller plays Haru
Haru, a third-year, is the only member of the gardening club and a white dwarf rabbit. Haru, who is often stigmatized because of her diminutive height, seeks self-worth by sexual promiscuity but ends up on the outside of society. Haru is often distant, but his connection with Legoshi becomes difficult.
Griffin Puatu plays Louis
Louis, a red deer of 18 years of age, is a junior at Cherrington Academy and the school’s most famous actor. Louis, a herbivore who has an inflated sense of superiority, aspires to the position of Beastar because he believes that only those with exceptional skill, service, and recognition deserve to be at the top. Over the course of the program, he becomes less manipulative and more empathetic, even admiring Legoshi.
Although no new voice actors have been confirmed, most of Beastars’ main characters should return for season 3. The main Japanese and English voice actors for Beastars Season 2 are as follows:
- Atsumi Tanezaki / Lauren Landa – Juno
- Yûki Kaji – Pina / Kayleigh McKee
- Keith Silverstein – Gouhin – Akio tsuka
- Hiroshi Shirokuma – Riz / Patrick Seitz
- Jonah Scott – Legoshi – Chikahiro Kobayashi
- Sayaka Senbongi – Haru / Lara Jill Miller
- Yuki Ono / Griffin Puatu – Louis
Beastars Season 3 Storyline
In a modern, civilized world inhabited by anthropomorphic animals, herbivores and carnivores have developed distinct ways of life. The large grey wolf Legoshi is an introverted pupil at Cherryton Academy. His Labrador friend Jack and he lives in a dorm together, along with a number of other students who eat meat. Legoshi is the stagehand for the school’s theatrical club, which is led by red deer star student Louis.
Vegetarian and carnivorous students both become uneasy and suspicious after witnessing the unexpected killing and midnight devouring of Tem, the alpaca. At around the same time as Legoshi is developing conflicted emotions for Louis’s girlfriend, Haru, the two had a chance to meet.
Beastars Season 3 Release Date
The announcement of the show’s comeback came late, but we welcome it with open arms. Studio Orange has announced that Beastars will return for a third season, but no premiere date has been set. The studio has also said that this will be the series’ last installment.
Beastars Season Ratings
Beastars was well-received by both critics and viewers after its debut. On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season has a 94% critical rating and an 87% audience rating, while the second season has a 76% audience rating. In addition to being nominated for eight awards at the 5th annual Crunchyroll Anime Awards, the program was awarded Best Opening Sequence. At the 6th Annual Crunchyroll Anime Awards in 2022, Season 2 was also nominated in three categories.
The first chapter of the Beastars manga was released in 2017, and the series concluded in 2021, for a grand total of 196 chapters. Season one spanned the first fifty chapters over the course of twelve episodes, while season two spanned the following fifty over the course of twelve episodes. Fans are worried after learning that Season 3 will be the last. If season three only has twelve episodes, would it be enough to finish up the plot if there are still 96 chapters to go? Or will there be more episodes in the final season than in the previous ones? There are currently no specifics on the strategy.
How many chapters will the upcoming season of Beastars cover?
There have been 100 chapters of the manga discussed so far. We doubt they are going to be able to finish the remaining 96 chapters in a single season. Nonetheless, we anticipate that they will discuss up to and including Chapter 123 of the Interspecies Relations Arc. Since each of the first two seasons had 12 episodes, it’s possible that there may be another 12 episodes until this story arc is resolved in Chapter 123.
Where to Watch Beastars Seasons?
Even though Season 3 of Beastars hasn’t been released yet, you can watch Seasons 1 and 2 on Netflix right now.
