The wait between the first and second Stone Ocean episode batches had JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fans waiting almost a year for the Netflix episodes, but luckily, the final installments are right around the corner. The streaming service revealed that the episodes following Jolyne Cujoh would be bringing the latest season to an end, arriving long before the physical Blu-Ray set that will be hitting Japan next year. Buckle up Joestar fans because things are about to get even weirder.
When last we left Jolyne and her allies, the Stand users were mourning the loss of Foo Fighters, the bizarre Stand who took over the body of a deceased inmate and helped in the fight against Pucci, a friend of Dio Brando seeking revenge against the Joestars while simultaneously attempting to discover a way into heaven. While the third batch of episodes had been confirmed via the physical Blu-Ray set hitting Japan next March, Joestar fans will be happy to hear that we won't need to be waiting that long to see Jolyne's story come to an end. The finale of Stone Ocean's manga was considered quite controversial considering what takes place in the last chapters, so JoJo fans should prepare themselves for the unexpected.
Netflix Anime's Official Twitter Account revealed that the final episodes of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean will be hitting the streaming service on December 1st, confirming that the season overall will have thirty-nine episodes as Jolyne's tale roars to an end this winter:

Netflix has remained tight-lipped regarding its future with the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure franchise, as there are two major arcs following Jolyne's journey that have already come to an end in the manga. Steelball Run focuses on a brand new reality and sees a cross-country road trip introducing fans to some very unique Stand users, directly following Stone Ocean, while the latest storyline in the manga, JoJolion takes us back to the sleepy town of Morioh with a twist.
