Despite Noragami releasing to great success, quickly turning into a cult classic, the show pretty much ended after two seasons. Despite this, fans still haven't given up on a potential sequel and as it stands it is not impossible that we might get the much anticipated Noragami season 3.

Just in case you need a quick recap on the story (I mean, it's been quite some time since the show initially released): Noragami follows Yato, a lesser-known deity striving for a shrine and recognition. After inadvertently meeting Hiyori, a human with a unique condition, and Yukine, his troubled spirit weapon, the trio has their fair share of adventures in the spirit world.

Noragami Season 3: Everything We Know So Far

Considering Noragami released its second season back in 2015 it's no wonder that fans are being concerned whether the show has been canceled. So far, though, there is no official statement regarding the matter.

  • If you don't want to wait for the Anime to continue or want to boost sales for the manga, you can continue where the anime left off with Vol. 10-12!

So Noragami fans rejoice, as the popular anime might get another season, it might just take a while. If we just take a look at Blue Exorcist, we can see that even though a series might be shelved for a while, that doesn't mean that it has been canceled.

But what are the reasons, that Noragami has been shelved for so long?

It's quite simple, honestly. The animation studio that has been working on Noragami back when it first released, Studio Bones, has been quite busy with other high profile projects like My Hero Academia, or Mob Psycho 100. This means they just didn't really have the time or capacity to take on another project, especially one that might be less profitable.

Despite the show being well received by fans, sales dropped significantly since its initial release, which makes it less likely for studios and publishers to invest into another season.

With how things are looking now, it is not really likely that Noragami will get another season, but you can never rule out the possibility that it might just still happen. Especially if fans prove that another season is in high demand!
