Fire Force – Where did it leave?
Fire Force season 2 concluded the 15th arc, The Stigma Arc, of the series. We last see Arthur and Shinra going to Asakusa to train under Benimaru. Being ravaged by Benimaru’s proto-nationalist training, Shinra discovers the press of death making his fire even hotter. Both Shinra and Arthur are able to surpass their limits.
While they are training, the White Clad has started targeting all those who have an Adolla Link, making Konro a potential target. Company 8 and its allies move to secure him, however, Company 5 loses its Captain. If this was not as deadly of a blow, what comes next sweeps Company 8th off the ground.

When is Fire Force Season 3 releasing?
There has been no official date yet. It has been a year since the production was green-lighted. There have also been rumors that there has been a shift in studios from David Production to Shaft Studios. This leads us to believe that:
- The shift has not happened yet, delaying the animation process.
- The rumor is false and the production is taking time due to the action-heavy content in the later arcs.
These are two plausible conditions that can be why season 3 has not received any official date as of yet. However, if the second situation is how it is, we can expect season 3 for Summer anime next year. This is the earliest the show can be expected to be out.
It has always been the case that the anime that makes its fans wait the most ends up being one of the most hyped shows of that season. Take Bleach Thousand Year Blood War as an example, it took 10 years to make its comeback and has taken the community out like a storm. So maybe waiting longer has its merits as well.
