The Beatless anime series is based on a Japanese science fiction serial novel of the same name. First released on June 10, 2011, and concluding a year later on July 10, 2012, the novel series was written by Satoshi Hase and illustrated by Redjuice. In Japan, the novel was a smashing success, leading to three separate manga adaptations. Years later, on January 13, 2018, Season 1 of Beatles premiered after a Japanese animation studio called Diomedea announced its intent to adapt the novel series into an anime show.
As expected, the show was renewed for a second season after positive reception from both manga readers and new viewers. Since the release of Beatles Season 2 on September 26, 2018, fans have been debating whether or not the show would return for a third season. Everything we understand about Season 3 thus far is included below.
Beatles Season 3 Renewal Status
After the second season concluded, the producers were notoriously tight-lipped about the show’s future. And the audience can’t wait for more episodes. However, they are not receiving enhancements from the developers. Fans of the show were enthusiastic, while critics were more ambivalent.
It’s possible that this is one of the factors delaying the premiere date for Season 2. There has been no word on whether or not Diomedea, the show’s production company, would cancel or renew Season 3 of The Beatles. Given how season two concluded, producers are unlikely to make any sort of announcement.
Beatles Season 3 Release Date
We’ve already established that the likelihood of a third season of the anime is extremely unlikely. Even if there is a miracle and the show is brought back to life, it will take a minimum of two or three years to create and film the episodes. If a third season of The Beatles is greenlit, we may see it broadcast as early as 2024. The future holds no guarantees at this moment.
Humanoid Interface Elements (hIEs) are human-like robots that won’t be invented until 2105, thanks to rapid technological progress. HEs have several roles in society, including public and private service. Arato Endo, a high school student, views hIEs the same way he does humans; he wants to own one but can’t afford to at the moment. While heading home from the supermarket late at night, he gets brutally attacked by a hIE.
He was mere seconds from death when Lacia, an aberrant person carrying a weaponized coffin, rushed to his help. As a result of the ensuing commotion, Lacia makes a deal with Arato to take control of the electric car in exchange for saving his life after it has been hacked and becomes a potential threat to them. As part of the agreement, he must accept full responsibility for her acts, which is something he does only grudgingly.
To an enraptured Arato, Lacia explains that she, like all hIEs, lacks a soul. After acquiring Lacia and bringing her home, Lacia enjoys her new, tranquil lifestyle while Arato is drawn into a succession of dramatic events, from being employed by a company that holds an online fashion modeling audition to getting caught in the crossfire between other escaped hIEs from Memeframe.

Beatles Season 3 English Dub
Despite the show’s popularity around the world, fans of English-dubbed anime will be disappointed to learn that neither season of Beatles has an English version. While an English dub is possible in the future, at present the show is only accessible through its original Japanese language version. On Amazon Prime Video, you may watch The Beatles in their original Japanese form with English subtitles if you so desire.
