When the second season of the show ended, the last episode ended with a message of ‘The story continues’.

There are chances for the manga volume to come at the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022. Earlier it was predicted to release in 2020 but it may be the pandemic that has affected their schedule.

Till then we can just assume the dates, but yes, season 3 will definitely be available to watch in the near future.
Berserk Season 3 Plot
This might be hard to digest but the manga series of Berserk has been running for 30 long years. In its long run, the manga series has published 40 volumes until now. As of mid-2020, the manga has 40 volumes. the Anime adaptation of this manga has basically covered half of the source material they have. The 2012 animated movie of this manga basically covered the 1997 manga series and covered Golden Age Arc. On the other hand, the 2016 adaptation which was a sequel to a 2012 anime movie, skipped plots like Lost Children Arc. The second season of the anime which was released in 2017 featured Falcon of the millennium Empire story which basically ended with chapter 301 of the 25th volume of the manga series.
So if we predict the upcoming Season 3 of Berserk, it will adapt 15 volumes of the manga series and it may also include some skipped chapters from previous volumes. So there is more than enough source material for the show to bring season 3 and more and more seasons and future. Season 3 might cover the remaining 57 chapters of Falcon of the millennium Empire story. There are chances for the third series to also begin with the Fantasia arc.
Berserk Volume 41 Release Date
The last running season which means the second season of the Anime was last released in 2017. There are chances that person season 3 will not release until they have a new manga volume to promote. Basically, if we talk about the sales of these anime adaptations, manga has a very large section of the revenue for any kind of anime. Hence it is very necessary for a new manga volume so that they can promote their anime through that.
As most of the installments of the manga have already aired, there are no new manga volumes to promote. If we talk about some statistics in 2016 and 2017 when the Berserk Season 1 and season 2 were released respectively, it increased the sales of volume 38, 39, and 40 of the manga series. These volumes were basically covered in 2016, 2017, and 2018 anime episodes. The 2012 movie series adaptation of this manga also promoted volumes 36 and 37 of the manga.
Unfortunately, no new manga volume has been released by the creators since 2018. Therefore we must know when can volume 41 of Berserk manga will release. There are chances that volume 41 is likely to fall sometime sooner this year or maybe in early 2022. After this, the show might definitely bring season 3 in a very short time. The Anime Season 3 might launch a few months before the launch of volume 41 of the manga.
Will There Be A Change In Berserk Season 3 Animation Style?
The second season of Berserk received very heavy criticism due to its animation style in 2016. The third season of the Anime has not been released yet and it’s been in production house for the past 3 years. The chances for the delay of season 3 could have been because of the negative reviews they got in 2016 regarding their animation style. They were criticized for lazy visuals and an underwhelming animation style. The fans of the series following the show from 1997 were very disappointed with the animation which might have demotivated the producers.
So there are chances that the animation for the third season might go back to their iconic animation style version that was in 1997. The first two seasons of 2016 basically used 3D computer graphics to create animation. This time they may use a detailed animation style with a 2D 3D hybrid. Although if you have watched the final season of season 2, you must have seen they used 2D animation at the end, which was very appreciated by the fans. So, there are chances they might use only 2D animation in the upcoming season or a 2D 3D hybrid.
