Dr. Stone is hard at work with Season 3 of the series, and a new rumor seems to have narrowed down exactly when fans will be able to see the new episodes in action! When the second season of the anime taking on Riichiro Inagaki and Boichi's now complete original manga series ended back in the Winter 2021 anime season, it had announced there were already plans in place to not only continue with a third season but return much sooner with a new special all about Season 3's big addition, Ryusui Nanami. With this new special debuting this Summer, fans are now looking ahead to the full third season of the series.
Dr. Stone previously revealed that the third season of the anime would be releasing some time in 2023, but have yet to offer either a concrete release date or a more narrow release window as of yet. According to a report from Ryokuta837 (which has spotted a number of release dates for many franchises in the past), Dr. Stone Season 3 will be launching during the Spring 2023 anime schedule. Dr. Stone's team themselves have yet to confirm or deny this potential release window for the new episodes, so take it with a grain of salt at this time.
The report also notes that the third season of the series will also carry the subtitle "New World," and if that's the case it makes quite a bit of sense as after establishing a much bigger base of operations for the Kingdom of Science (after incorporating Tsukasa's group into it), Senku Ishigami and the others head out into the open seas in search of the next way to advance each of their lives and save everyone else currently trapped in stone. Luckily, it won't be too long before we see the next crucial step as Dr. Stone: Ryusui will be hitting this Summer.
If you wanted to catch this new anime special along with the first two seasons of the anime, Dr. Stone is now streaming with Crunchyroll. The entire manga run has been completed (along with a new epilogue chapter released recently), and you can find it with Viz Media's digital Shonen Jump library with a paid subscription.
