Following the end of the second season back in 2015, this fan favorite series will finally be making a comeback next year as part of the Winter 2021 anime season. Initially scheduled to release this past October before being delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Log Horizon will finally be returning for its third season on January 13th.

Officially dubbed as Log Horizon: Destruction of the Round Table, the third season of the long awaited series will be running for 12 episodes in total. Fans will be able to stream the new season with FunimationNOW alongside its premiere in Japan, and the third season of the series will be featuring a returning staff and cast from the first two seasons.
This means director Shinji Ishihara will be directing the new season for Studio DEEN once more, and returning cast members such as Takuma Terashima as Shiroe, Emiri Katou as Akatsuki and Tomoaki Maeno as Naotsug have all been confirmed to return with the new episodes. But as seen in the new opening for the series, there are going to be a ton of new faces introduced alongside the familiar ones.
Log Horizon is only one of the many anime returning for a sequel season next January, so the Winter 2021 schedule is getting more packed by the day. What do you think?
