What Happened So Far in Vampire Knight
Vampire Knight follows the story of Yuki Cross, a student of the Cross Academy boarding school who was adopted at the age of five by the school’s headmaster. Yuki doesn’t have any memories of her childhood. Her last memory was when a vampire was attacking her, and Kaname Kuran saved her. Yuki often thinks of that moment and has highly admired Kaname since the beginning; her appreciation for Kaname becomes a long-lasting crush that seems to be one-sided because he’s a pure-blood vampire and Yuki is a human. But Kaname’s love for Yuki begins to unveil when Yuki’s childhood friend, Zero, begins to show his feelings for her.
Although Zero hates vampires and is a vampire hunter because of that reason, Zero ironically becomes a vampire himself, and Yuki offers him her blood to quench his thirst. Zero couldn’t resist and accepts her offer but then feels disgusted because of what he’s become. Zero constantly faces a psychological conflict within himself, due to which he becomes distanced from Yuki although he wants to protect her.
In Season 2, fans experience a huge surprise when it is revealed that Yuki is a pureblood vampire whose real identity is awakened by Kaname’s bite. Yuki’s memories are brought back, in which it is discovered that Kaname and Yuki share a sibling’s relationship, and they’ve been betrothed as children. Season 2 then ends with Kaname and Yuki leaving the academy together. As a vampire hunter, Zero promises to kill Yuki the next time he sees her, and she accepts his promise.
What Is Going on With Studio Deen?

What Do We Know About Vampire Knight Season 3 So Far?
So far, Studio Deen hasn’t given any news about a Season 3. No teaser or official confirmation of renewal has been released either.
However, the director of the first two seasons, Kiyoko Sayama, showed his interest and desire to work another season because he said he would love to make a Vampire Knight Season 3 even more improved than the previous seasons.
What Are Fans Saying About Vampire Knight Season 3?
Fans have been so desperately wanting a season 3 that they even started a petition to bring back Vampire Knight Season 3, and more than 52,000 people signed the petition. Fans have filled their social media account with posts about really wanting a season 3.
However, since a long time has passed since the second season ended and manga is finished, some fans are assuming that a Season 3 will not become.
Will There Be Vampire Knight Season 3?
Vampire Knight season one was released in 2008, and it became one of the most popular vampire romance anime, which led to season two being released the same year.
The series is also streaming on Netflix because of its demand by fans. It has a rating of 6.95 of myanimelist. Although the anime has received heavy demand from fans, there has still been no official announcement about a Season 3. Each year, Studio Deen has been working on a new project, which means they’re busy with other projects and aren’t interested in making a Season 3.
The manga on which the anime is based was started in 2004, and it officially had finished on May 24, 2013. Primarily, animated adaptation is created to promote manga sales; most anime is made while the manga is ongoing. But since the manga has ended, the creators have no motive for making a Season 3. Although the anime hasn’t been officially canceled, twelve years have passed since the anime has ended, seven years since the manga ended, and the update has been given regarding a season 3.
Considering all of this, it can be said that the chances of a Season 3 are very slim unless there is a sudden rise in demand from fans for another season which would put pressure on the creators for making a Season 3.
When Will Vampire Knight Season 3 Be Released?
Twelve years have passed since the last season, and there has still been no announcement regarding a Season 3.
Given the abovementioned facts, it can be assumed that a Season 3 will most likely not come out, which means there is no release date available for a third season.
What Can We Expect in Season 3 of Vampire Knight?
Since Season 2 of Vampire Knight ended at volume 10 of the manga, and the manga has 19 volumes, Season 3 would probably continue from volume 11. If this happens, the third season will show what happens after Yuki and Kaname leave the academy. Since there is a love triangle in the anime, some fans want Yuki to end up with Kaname, while some want Yuki to be with Zero instead.
Season 3 would finally clear out who Yuki is with whom Yuki ends up.
