The second season also had 14 episodes and there are 28 episodes in total in the series.
It’s been about a decade since we haven’t heard about Season 3 of the show. But recently in October 2018, great news came for the fans. In October 2018, a special one-time novel, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya was released which gave the hope for season 3 to return. But it’s sad to announce that there hasn’t been any official information regarding the third season of the show. Originally the Anime was produced so that the original night novel gets a boost in their sales though they were already very popular it gained a great fan base after the Anime was released.
Usually, the anime series is renewed based on two factors, the first one is the source material and the second one is the fan base. If we talk about the renewal of season 3, the show stands correctly in both places as it has a great fan following from all the otakus around the globe. The other thing is about the source material. A special one-series novel was recently released, so they have source material to continue the third season.

But here is devastating news for you, the third season of the show is officially canceled as informed by the original makers in 2020. You might be wondering what was the reason why the show has been canceled? In an interview, the original makers of the show mentioned that they are forced to cancel season 3 of the show due to the ongoing pandemic all around the world.
And yes they mentioned canceled and not postponed! So there are very few chances for season 3 to get renewed as it has been officially canceled. But we are still in doubt whether they have canceled the show until the pandemic or canceled it overall. If the show, by any chance is renewed in near future we might be able to see it at the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023. As of now the show officially stands canceled. So there is no Haruhi Suzumiya Season 3 Release Date.
They also mentioned that they were done with the production for season 3 but due to the coronavirus pandemic they have to scrap it all now and it won’t be seen by the public anywhere in near future.

She also tells her how Haruhi has a great power to destroy the entire plane of existence if she ever wanted to.
Yuki also explains to Kyon that Haruhi doesn’t know she has these enormous powers and therefore she is sent by her organization so that she could keep an eye on her so that she never reaches any point of destruction.
