Fans of the badass Classroom Of The Elite anime were surprised with a season 3 announcement mere weeks after a season 2 reveal already brought them to cloud nine.
The season 3 announcement was a surprise, as it was only revealed after a live-streamed special by the Kadokawa Anime YouTube channel debuted a new promotional video and visual last March 6, 2022.
The sequel to this well-received anime was already anticipated by eager fans for two years before the people behind the production dropped the bomb last March.
If you eagerly await the continuation of Kiyotaka Ayanokoji’s not-so-tranquil school life, you’re not the only one.

Classroom Of The Elite Season 3 Release Date
The broadcast for season 3 was confirmed for 2023, although no anime season or exact dates and details were released. This article will be updated after more details are released.
Studio Lerche will return to produce the third season with Hiroyuki Hashimoto with Seiji Kishi still at the helm, this time with the addition of Yoshihito Nishouji. Lerche did a great job in giving life to the previous two seasons, and the same expectations can be held.
Classroom Of The Elite Season 3 Trailer
The confirmation of the 2023 broadcast was cleverly added at the end of the video above, which was the promotional video teaser for Classroom Of The Elite season 2.
Fans were immediately roused to more than just a passing celebration, especially after seeing the end of season 2 leave off on a cliffhanger last September 26, 2022.
We will update this article as soon as the people behind COTE release an official trailer.
Classroom Of The Elite Season Story
Classroom Of The Elite tells the story of the students of Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School, a school established by the Japanese government in the distant future. This school employs a laissez-faire policy: “talking, sleeping, and even sabotage are permitted during class.”
Kiyotaka Ayanokōji is a badass, emotionless protagonist with unrivaled intelligence. This quiet and unassuming boy purposely enters the school as part of Class D, where inferior students are dumped.
Despite Ayanokōji’s attempt at staying low-key, he gets involved in several affairs that slowly unravel the strength he has been hiding beneath his dull personality. He and his fellow Class-D first-years slowly unravel the truth behind the system placed within the school.
Classroom Of The Elite Season Expectations
Both the official Twitter account of the anime and the cast confirmed that the Year 1 arc would culminate in the next season. Season 3 will take off from the light novel’s volume 8, and the season will finish with the freshmen completing their first year. Written by Shōgo Kinugasa and illustrated by Shunsaku Tomose, the novel currently has 11 volumes out.
Fans are expecting a showdown between Ayanokōji and the recently introduced character Arisu Sakayanagi. Sakayanagi is the only character who seems to know about Ayanokōji’s prowess, as well as his connection to the mysterious facility called the White Room.
The two aces’ battlefield will surely be the Mixed Training Camp, a new Special Test expected to be more mind-boggling than the previous survival test on the deserted island.
