Will there be The Testament of Sister New Devil Season 3?
Although some critics criticized The Testament of Sister New Devil for having too much ecchi, it has remained a popular show. The popularity led to the anime having a second season and three OVAs. It remained an active franchise up till 2018. Moreover, there is source material left for season 3 because the first season only covered light novel volumes 1-3, the second season covered volumes 4-7, and the OVAs covered volume 8. Hence, volumes 9-12 can still be used for making season 3.
However, there are quite a few reasons why the chances for a season 3 have become very low. Firstly, the studio which produced both seasons and OVAs, Production IMS had gone bankrupt and has closed down. Since then, no other studio has shown interest in taking over the production for season 3 of this anime. Secondly, the light novel on which the anime is based ended on March 31, 2021, which means there is no source material left for the anime to promote, which can be a discouraging factor for making a season 3.
Considering all of these factors, it can be said that it cannot be fully confirmed if there will be a season 3 of The Testament of Sister New Devil or not. The chances are low because the light novel ended, and the studio closed down, but maybe the demand by fans could encourage the officials to produce a season 3, and a studio would take over its production.
When will The Testament of Sister New Devil Season 3 be released?
The season of The Testament of Sister New Devil is not yet confirmed because there has been no official announcement about it. Hence, the release date of season 3 is not available either.
