Netflix’s 7 SEEDS Season 3 will finally show us what happened to the characters after barely escaping the countdown to doom with a nuclear missile. But when will Netflix’s 7 SEEDS Part 3 (Episode 25) come out?

(Keep in mind that Netflix counts the seasons differently from the Japanese. 7 SEEDS Part 3 and 4 might be considered to be 7 SEEDS Season 2 when it broadcasts on TV in Japan.)

Netflix has been promoting anime in recent years and the TV streaming giant has been instrumental in renewing second and third seasons. For example, in 2021 Netflix’s The Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 anime will release. Netflix’s Ultraman Season 2 has also been confirmed to be in production.

The 7 SEEDS anime is based on a story with a complete ending and it’s only being released internationally via Netflix. Therefore, the company has a vested interest in seeing the anime’s story through to the ending assuming the TV show is popular enough.

That means 7 SEEDS Season 4 (7 SEEDS Part 4) should be around the corner. It will likely be the ending of the entire story.

The 7 SEEDS release date for the first season/Part 1 was scheduled for June 28, 2019. The first season was originally supposed to be released in April 2019, but it was delayed due to production issues. Netflix’s 7 SEEDS Season 2 (Part 2) released on March 26, 2020.

Here are the Japanese 7 SEEDS cast members:

  • Nao Tōyama as Natsu Iwashimizu
  • Jun Fukuyama as Arashi Aota
  • Katsuyuki Konishi as Semimaru Asai
  • Yoko Soumi as Botan Saotome
  • Kana Asumi as Matsuri Tendō
  • Akira Ishida as Chimaki Yamori
  • Aoi Yūki as Hotaru Kusakuri

In the past, Netflix U.S. provided a 7 SEEDS English dub immediately. Therefore, the 7 SEEDS Season 3 English dub will likely be included.

The first two seasons were produced by animation studios GONZO and Studio Kai with director Yukio Takahashi at the helm. This will be his second project being the director after the 2013 Dog & Scissors anime (a story about a boy resurrected as a pet dog to a sadistic girl who uses scissors as a weapon).

Writer Touko Machida is handling series composition. Artist Youko Satou (who also worked on Dog & Scissors) will be doing character design. Composer Michiru is creating the music.

The first season’s OP song was Amatsuki’s “Ark” and the ED song was Majiko’s “WISH”. The second season’s OP was GLIM SPANKY’s “From The Seeds” and the ED was Cider Girl’s “Synchro”.

The opening and ending theme song music for 7 SEEDS Season 3 hasn’t been announced yet.

This article provides everything that is known about 7 SEEDS Season 3 (7 SEEDS Part 3 / 7SEEDS Season 3 / Seven SEEDS Season 3) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.

7 SEEDS manga compared to the anime

The story for the anime is based on the 7 SEEDS manga series by writer and artist Yumi Tamura (the creator of Basara). The manga was serialized from 2001 through 2017, with the ending being released in August 2017 as Volume 35. There was also a spin-off manga called 7 SEEDS Gaiden that released in fall 2017.

Considering that there are 177 manga chapters, the anime needed multiple parts or cours to tell the tale with a comfortable pace. A “cour” is a three-month TV broadcasting unit based on the physical seasons and animes usually have between 10 to 13 episodes per cour.

The story of the manga follows five groups named Winter, Spring, Summer A, Summer B, and Autumn. The first half of the manga provides the first world experiences and backstories of the team members, but the groups are meeting up by the second half.

The first part of the anime adaptation introduced the trained members of Summer A before finding a stopping point near the end of the Summer Solstice story arc.

Unfortunately, the anime reached this stopping point by rushing the story pacing and cutting down on certain story arcs. Fans of the manga might complain, but anime-only audiences probably appreciated the fast-moving plot that still took the time necessary to develop key characters.

The good news is that 7 SEEDS Part 2 slowed down the pacing dramatically. 7 SEEDS Part 2 (or 7 SEEDS Episode 13) picked up the story again with the events of Chapter 84 of Volume 16. 7 SEEDS Episode 24 finished by ending with Volume 20.

That means 7 SEEDS Season 3 (7 SEEDS Episode 25) will be adapting Volume 21 and on. Assuming the pacing speeds up a little, it’s possible that 7 SEEDS Season 4 will finish the remainder of the manga’s story. Let’s just hope the remainder of the anime is able to adapt the heart of the story.

7 SEEDS Part 3 release date predictions

As of the last update, Netflix, or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the 7 SEEDS Season 3 release date. Nor has the production of a 7 SEEDS Part 3 sequel been announced.

Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information. In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when, or if, the 7SEEDS Season 3 premiere date will occur in the future on Netflix U.S. and internationally.

When Netflix releases anime seasons worldwide they usually release all the episodes at once, which means there is a delay. But in the case of this anime, Netflix launched the first two seasons of the anime as a streaming exclusive and then the episodes were broadcast on Japanese TV stations at a later date.

Seven SEEDS Season 3 Spoilers (Plot summary/synopsis)

Note: This article assumes that 7 SEEDS Part 3 (7 SEEDS Episode 25) will follow the manga and start with the events of Volume 21.

The last time we watched the 7 SEEDS anime, the Fuji carried nuclear missiles that were targeting Japan. When the ship’s electricity was switched back on, so did the countdown to doom.

The survivors managed to avert this catastrophe and the scattered groups are trying to settle into this strange new world. Hana managed to survive an assassination attempt and is finally reunited with two of her friends.

A new danger is lurking all around them and they don’t even realize it. When Hana and her friends in the Spring group discover a mushroom farm they unleash an ecological disaster upon the world that could destroy everything living.

The mushrooms begin rapidly spreading through the forest, infecting even the animals. Then a lightning storm descends upon the mushroom forest, wreaking even more havoc.

Unfortunately, anime fans will have to wait until the 7 SEEDS Season 3 release date to watch what happens next. Stay tuned!
