Cells At Work (Hataraku Saibou in Japanese) is a biology comedy anime adapted from Akane Shimizu’s manga. It debuted on July 8, 2018. Season 2 premiered on January 9, 2021, with eight episodes airing until February 27, 2021.
The manga came to an end on 2021 and there is only one more volume to adapt into anime. But will it be renewed as a new season, or will it be released as an OVA? Let’s deep dive into this below.
Cells At Work Season 3 Release Date & Renewal Status
Both prior Hataraku Saibou parts garnered tremendous audience response. Praised for educational yet entertaining content, fans learned about cellular workings. Recent part holds 7.31 MAL score. However, an issue hampers Season 3 renewal.
Rumors hinted Season 2 would cover manga end, even with a Coronavirus episode. But it ended with just eight episodes. Now there is not enough chapters in the manga to adapt for season 3. Studios need more source material for continuation. Thus, officials may delay Season 3 until sufficient content is available.
As of August 2023, there is no official announcement about Season 3’s release date.
Gibt es genügend Quellenmaterial für eine Fortsetzung?
The anime diverged from manga order but remained true to its source. Season 1 covered up to chapter 18, skipping chapter 13 and chapter 16. Second season adapted these along with manga’s fifth volume. The manga concluded with its sixth volume in January 26, 2021.
David Production has only one more volume for Cells At Work Season 3, affecting its renewal status. It would make sense for them to release a movie or an OVA that covers the final volume of the manga.
However, getting another season does not seem very likely as there is not enough source material content to adapt.
Which Studio Will Adapt The Next Season Of Hataraku Saibou?
The first and second seasons of Hataraku Saibou! was the work of David Production Studio. This studio has adapted several popular manga into anime. Some examples are JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, Fire Force and Captain Tsubasa.
Since this studio has been handling the anime adaptation of Cells at Work from the very beginning, we can expect them to continue the renewal if season 3 is confirmed.
