By Jacob VanGundy | Published

Spy x Family season 3 is officially on its way, which is great news for fans of comedy anime.

While no details, including a release date, have been released the confirmation of a third season is reason enough to celebrate. 

Season 3 Of Spy X Family

Spy x Family season 3 will focus on the fake Forger family put together by super spy Loid, as it has since the show debuted in 2022. As part of a mission he gets a woman and child to pose as his wife and daughter, not realizing that his fake wife Yor is an assassin and his fake daughter Anya is psychic. Anya is sent to a private school to get closer to the son of Twilight’s target, turning mundane school activities into comically high-stakes espionage.

A Slice-Of-Life Family Spy Sitcom

Most of the comedy in Spy x Family comes from the juxtaposition of Loid and Yor’s occupations and the mundane problems of domestic life. The show has frequent sitcom-style misunderstandings elevated by the serious spy plot that serves as the anime’s backdrop. The first two seasons gradually added quirky characters like Bond, the Forger’s precognitive dog, and Loid’s stoic but secretly love-stricken co-worker Fiona, something season 3 will hopefully continue. 

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

Spy x Family season 3’s announcement is unsurprising given the anime’s immense popularity. Winning over adult and child audiences, the show has a huge worldwide fanbase, with the character Anya becoming a mascot for the series. It has also found success with critics, earning numerous award nominations and wins while having a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. 

Spy x Family season 3 will be the first season to premiere after the movie Spy x Family Code: White was released. The anime movie was released on December 22 2023 in Japan and the United States on April 19 2024 to positive reception from both critics and audiences. It made $59.6 million in theaters worldwide and has a nearly perfect 94% on Rotten Tomatoes

Not much is known about the upcoming Spy x Family season 3, but fans eager to know what’s coming next can turn to the source material. The manga by Tatsuya Endo was originally published in 2019 and is still ongoing as a best-selling manga. With the anime having adapted approximately half of the manga’s chapters, the next season will likely continue to draw directly from the manga.

While the anime is the most popular adaptation, Spy x Family has become an extensive franchise. The series has received a musical adaptation in Japan, with a national tour. A video game was even made, released in Japan in December of 2023 with an international release coming later this year.
