World Trigger has announced a third season will be on the way! While we're currently waiting on the premiere for the much anticipated second season of the series, Toei Animation recently celebrated the upcoming episodes with a special presentation as part of Jump Festa Online 2021. It was here that World Trigger confirmed that the second season of the series would only be running for a single cour of episodes. Meaning it won't be lasting for a 70 plus episode run like the first season, but will instead have a 12 episode run until the Spring.
Along with the confirmation that World Trigger's second season would only be running for a single cour of episodes, the series has announced a third season is now in development. A release window for the third season will be confirmed at a later date following the release of the second season of the series -- which is getting ready to launch in January.
