Darker Than Black was a popular anime in the early 2000s. The anime series Darker Than Black, 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. The Darker Than Black series was 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 television series Darker Than Black 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 Darker Than Black season 3.
The first 25-episode Darker Than Black television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2007. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Darker Than Black Season 3 Episode 1 or some sort of sequel.
It has been a while since the second season concluded, but some fans are still wondering if it will return for another round in the future. Let us discuss the possibility of Darker Than Black Season 3.
There has been a sale of more than 15,000 copies. DVD/Blu-Ray discs contribute to around 15-20% of the revenue for an anime series. This may sound un-profitable and also made many animes a failure.
Anime Series can promote a lot of products making it a booming industry. Some of the products which were sold as merchandise were:
Currently, 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 twelve episodes from October to December 2009.
Most of these dedicated fans are still waiting for another season. Unfortunately, it seems unlikely now to happen. It has been over a decade since the second season of the anime concluded. There are still no plans for the season. What the anime needs, for now, is a reboot.
The franchise is already too old. If the creators want to produce a new season, they need to do a lot of work to be at par with the current anime titles. Aside from that, they would need a new studio, cast, and staff since Tensai Okamura, the director, and creator of the series has already left Studio Bones. Unless a dedicated team will be willing to go through that hassle, then season 3 is most likely never going to happen anymore.
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, canceled, or announced, 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.

Ten years ago, Heaven’s Gate appeared in South America and Hell’s Gate in Japan.
These gates ignore every law of physics and just showed up in the sky for an unknown reason. As the gates appeared, the Contractors also emerged. These are people granted with supernatural abilities in exchange for their humanity.
Section 4 Chief Misaki Kirihara finds herself in conflict with the Contractor codenamed Hei, also known as the “Black Reaper.”
Countries and syndicate organizations worldwide train and employ Contractors as spies and assassins. These results in violent and deadly battles.
There is currently no trailer for Darker Than Black Season 3 or Season 4, but we will post it here if it becomes available. Here is a trailer for the first season for the time being if you didn’t see it yet.
