Darker Than Black was a popular anime in the early 2000s and also known as Dākā Zan Burakku-Kuro no Keiyakusha in Japanese, was first announced in December 2006, and its first trailer was released in March 2007. This show is created and directed by Tensai Okamura.

Darker Than Black is a fantastic supernatural thriller anime series with mystery elements that are loved by people all over the world. It follows a contractor codenamed Hei also called a black reaper in the underground world. Hei, like his associates, undertakes missions for the mysterious and ruthless Syndicate.

The anime has amassed plenty of fans. The first season currently holds an 8.09/ 10 rating on MyAnimeList. Its second season has a 7.94/ 10 rating.

The anime TV series has had two seasons so far and 4 OVAs, directed by Tensai Okamura and animated by Studio Bones. There has been no word on whether the studio or the director will return for a season 3.

Will There Be Darker Than Black Season 3?

There is still no confirmation if Darker Than Black will return for season 3. The anime series premiered in 25 episodes in Japan in April 2007, followed by a sequel, Darker than Black: Gemini of the Meteor, which aired 12 episodes from October to December 2009.

The majority of these devoted followers are still anticipating another season. Regrettably, it currently looks unlikely to occur. The anime’s second season came to an end more than ten years ago. The season’s plans are currently undetermined. Currently, an anime reboot is required.

The series is already too old. To compete with the current anime series, the makers must put in a lot of effort if they plan to develop a new season. A new studio, cast, and crew would also be required as Tensai Okamura, the series’ director and originator, has already left Studio Bones. Season 3 is probably no longer going to materialize unless a committed team is prepared to put up with the hardship.

When Will Darker Than Black Season 3 be Released?

Darker Than Black Season 3 is never renewed, there is no official release date for Darker Than Black Season 3 because the third season was never confirmed. So there is no countdown, and a release date is pretty doubtful to be ever announced because a third season will most likely never get announced.

We will update this post if there is any news or a release date for a new Darker Than Black anime project announced on the Darker Than Black official website. If you lost hope that there would be a new Darker Than Black season, you can try reading the manga for the second season since it’s different from the anime.
