Fans of the epic fantasy anime Made in Abyss, which was a top contender for the greatest anime of a season in the summers of 2022, will be pleased to hear that the story of Riko, Reg, & Nanachi will continue in a third season.
Made in Abyss: The Gold City of Blistering Sun, the sequel series to the season 2 of Made in Abyss, was officially greenlit for production during a special ceremony in Tokyo on January 15.
Not much is known about the upcoming third season, although it seems likely that it will follow the same manga adaptation formula as the previous two. There is currently no release date because production has only recently began.
Made in Abyss has spawned not only two television seasons but also a number of feature-length animated films, the most important of which is the canonical Dawn of a Deep Soul, which takes place between the events both the first and third television seasons. All three Made in Abyss films provide a condensed version of the first season’s events.
An Original Abyssal Tale

Treasures and relics from bygone eras can be found in abundance in the Abyss. Cave Raiders embark on perilous expeditions into the Abyss in search of priceless artefacts.
Cave Raiders who venture even further into the caverns are met with increasingly terrifying consequences on their return.

Unfortunately, Made in Abyss fans still have a long wait ahead of them.
As we wait, let’s discuss the potential storylines for Made in Abyss Third season and how they might relate to the ongoing events.
