Is There a ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ Season 3 Announcement? Answered

Fans of Jujutsu Kaisen have seen Gege Akutami, the manga’s author, post key visuals for season 3 of the anime on their alleged Twitter account earlier in 2023. Although the posters looked legitimate, this announcement for The Culling Game Arc was proven to be fake.

The account that posted the misleading poster isn’t affiliated with MAPPA or Gege Akutami. It was merely a fan account with a huge following. That doesn’t mean fans have nothing to look forward to, because MAPPA is putting its animators back on the grind for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 3.

After the last episode of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 aired, MAPPA released an official teaser for a third season. This isn’t a false alarm. The Culling Game Arc will get a whole season for itself, but the release date is yet to be announced.

Earlier in November, many speculated that the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen would be canceled because animators had reached their breaking point and began speaking out against MAPPA in their own way. Some have drawn unsettling images that indicate their burnout, and many others have shown solidarity with the Jujutsu Kaisen team, who are being worked to the bone like human printers for the next episode.

Things have quieted down on the side of the animators, and the success of the anime has buried the controversy. MAPPA’s animators have proven many times that they can churn out great episodes in a crunch, but at the cost of alleged overwork. Hopefully, MAPPA’s Jujutsu Kaisen team will get a healthier release schedule amidst everybody’s excitement over The Culling Game Arc.
