Fruits Basket will be premiering its final season early with Funimation! Following a strong two seasons, the rebooted anime adaptation for Natsuki Takaya's classic romance series will officially be coming to its end with a third and final season. Officially titled Fruits Basket: The Final, this third season of the series will be making its big premiere next month as part of the massive Spring 2021 schedule of new anime releases. That's not exactly totally true anymore, however, as soon the series will be holding an early premiere for the final season's first episode!

This will be a special premiere of the final season's very first episode with its English dub language track.
