Isn’t that amazing we already have two seasons of KonoSuba, with a movie & a crossover spin-off? What a great time to be alive! With the recent release of the Legend of Crimson moive, Konosuba season 3 might not be far off.
So far, only a few volumes of the light novel were adapted into anime, which means there is a lot of Megumin, Darkness, Aqua, and Kazuma to enjoy in the future too.
KonoSuba is an anime isekai that follows Kazuma Satō, a NETTO teenager gets transported to a game-like world after his (uncool) premature death.
There hasn’t been any official announcement regarding S3, but, it looks Kazuma shall be gearing up with the 3rd season pretty soon.

Where to Watch Konosuba
Obviously, Crunchyroll is the go to place for watching Konosuba (and any other anime for that matter.)
Both S1, S2 and the movie are exclusively available on Crunchyroll; hence, it is unavailable on Hulu, Amazon Prime Videos, Netflix, or Funimation.
A lot of anime series have been delayed lately. Why? Due to the COVID pandemic. People are slowly getting used to this lifestyle, but the delay it initially caused will take some time to catch up. This was also the reason for the Legend of the Crimson Movie’s late release.
Hence, let us pray that the Konosuba Season 3’s production shall not be affected drastically.
Finally, we may conclude by saying that this article will be updated as new details arrive.
For now, you may share this post with other Konosuba fans to make them aware of the current situation.
