Someone’s podiatrist may go by the name of Dr. Stone somewhere out there, but in the world of anime, he’s one of the newest heroes to emerge on the scene and win over the hearts of anime fans across the world. It takes place thousands of years in the future after a strange occurrence renders virtually all of mankind stone in the manga adaptation “Dr. Stone.” Then one day, Senku, a brilliant adolescent, comes back to life. His old buddy Taiju soon follows suit, and the two of them collaborate on a plan to resurrect the rest of mankind when they are not busy battling for their lives against lions and deadly gases like those described in the book.
Even if the science doesn’t always line up, it doesn’t have to when the narrative is as compelling as it is. Throughout the previous two seasons, many secrets have been left unsolved. Fortunately, Season 3 has been verified with the release of a new teaser, which promises that even more will be revealed in the coming season. Season 3 of “Dr. Stone” will feature the following developments.
When Will Dr. Stone Season 3 Be Available to Watch Online?
Originally airing in the summer of 2019, Season 1 of “Dr. Stone” will be followed by Season 2, which will premiere at the beginning of 2021, nearly a year and a half after Season 1. Despite the lack of an official release date, it would seem most likely that Season 3 will follow the same pattern as Season 2 and will be released sometime in the spring or summer of 2022, although things might certainly change between now and the time of release. However, while the “Dr. Stone” Season 3 teaser promises an epic journey on the wide sea, it does not provide any clue as to when those episodes will be released in their whole form.
When new episodes do begin to be released, viewers residing in the United States can expect to have to wait a bit longer before being able to see them on television. Initial airings of the episodes take place in Japan, with the English dubs premiering on Toonami a few weeks later. If any of these release dates become available, be sure to check back with Looper to be the first to know.
Who Will Be a Part of the Dr. Stone Season 3 Cast?
The voice casts for both dubs of “Dr. Stone” are expected to remain essentially the same heading into Season 3 of the series. If you’re looking for the Japanese dub, it should imply Yûsuke Kobayashi (“Food Wars”) and Makoto Furukawa (“One Punch Man”) providing their voices to the characters of Senku and Taiju, respectively. Among those who have contributed to the English dubs are Aaron Dismuke (“Fullmetal Alchemist”) and Ricco Fajardo, who has lent his voice to Senku and Taiju, respectively (“Sky Wizard Academy”).
Manami Numakura, Gen Satô, and Ayumu Murase are three more Japanese voice actors who may return to reprise their roles in “Dr. Stone” Season 3. There have been recurring English voice actors such as Brandon McInnis, Felecia Angelle, and Brittany Lauda, among others. Since Season 3 appears to push the protagonists into new, undiscovered terrain (both physically and symbolically), viewers should expect fresh faces and voices to enter the mix.
What Can We Expect From the Third Season of Dr. Stone?
In the “Dr. Stone” Season 3 trailer, you may have thought you’d stumbled into an episode of “One Piece,” but rest assured, the teaser was only signaling that Senku and his buddies will be embarking on an oceanic journey. The “Age of Exploration” storyline will be the next one to be adapted for the anime, according to ComicBook.com. To learn more about what caused humans to turn to stone, they construct the massive ship Perseus and set sail around the earth. There are many more innovations that they come up with along the road to assist them to get humanity back on track.
Now in its fourth year and showing no indications of stopping any time soon, the manga has been continuing strong since 2017. Writer Riichiro Inagaki said in an interview with Anime News Network: “So I’m not sure what happens in the conclusion, but that’s not necessarily relevant to the tale. Although we have a basic concept of how the tale will conclude, this trip has taken us three steps ahead and two steps back at times, but I’m eager to see it through to the end. What I can guarantee is that I will not go beyond the allotted time for profit’s sake.”
The third season of “Dr. Stone” may not be the end of the story for viewers, but we’re confident that the show will continue for many more seasons.
