Spice And Wolf or Ookamkami to Koushinryou is a Japanese anime. It was written by Isuna Hasekua and lasted for four years to finish 17 volumes. In 2016, the author announced that he is working on another volume of the novel series, which gave fans hope that Spice and Wolf season 3 is coming too. It’s been five years since the announcement, but we still haven’t seen any significant development in the anime series.

Spice And Wolf Season 1 of the anime debuted with 13 episodes back in 2008. It consumed the plot of the first two LN volumes. Whereas, the second installment of the series returned in 2009, and covered Volumes 3 and 5 of the light novel. However, the Spice and Wolf light novel series has a whopping total of 22 volumes, as of December 2019. Therefore season 3 still has more than enough source material to adapt.

About The Anime

Spice and Wolf follow the adventure of Kraft Lawrence, a merchant who needs to earn money to start his shop. One night, Lawrence found a wolf-deity named Holo in his wagon. Holo is 600 years old but looks like a 15-year-old girl with a wolf tail and ear. Holo asks Lawrence to take her to her home. Along the way, Holo’s wisdom helps Lawrence gain profit in trades.

The show contains a lot of trading jargon and information regarding negotiation and bargaining presented creatively without boring the audience. The show’s plot was blended so beautifully that it managed to make a fantasy world seem realistic, never too complex, nor too clumsy.

Why Is there no Spice and Wolf Season 3?

Unfortunately, despite public demand and countless petitions, the show makers themselves have previously said he’s not interested in creating season 3. Hasekura’s statement was a huge heartbreaker for fans. They continue to talk about the show and are still relentlessly asking for Spice and Wolf Season 3. We hate to burst fan’s bubbles, but there’s a high chance that these dreams will never come to reality.

Hasekura has continued to create more novel series for Spice and Wolf. The latest one was released on September 10th, 2021 without any anime television series in place. Since 2016, ASCII Media Works has published three volumes of a spin-off light novel series titled Wolf and Parchment.

Spice and Wolf Season 3 Announcement

Today, February 25th, 2022, the official Japanese website for the Spice and Wolf franchise confirmed that a new anime adaptation was in the works. The announcement was made as part of the series’ 15th-anniversary celebrations, with the report titled “No, I’m sorry. The journey will start again, right? “Wolf and Spice” completely new animation production decision!!!”

Now, we know that the upcoming anime project will be canon within the wider Spice and Wolf universe. However, it is unclear whether this new project will be a prequel, sequel, or even an anime movie. Similarly, the animation studio and production staff have not yet been revealed.

Spice and Wolf Season 3 Release Date

Even though a new anime series is confirmed for Spice and Wolf, no official release date is yet announced by the creators. Considering the production will take time, we can expect Spice and Wolf season 3 to be released around July 2023 on Hulu. It will also have a total of 13 episodes like the previous seasons.
