Season 2 will come to an end on September 26, 2022, and with this, it leaves the fans asking the major question – When will Classroom Of The Elite Season 3 be released?
The second season of this series enjoyed wide popularity, so it’s only natural that viewers want to go ahead into the story and know more about it.
Currently, Classroom Of The Elite has 2 seasons of 12 episodes each, which makes it a total of 24 episodes. Although so many episodes have aired, the story is still at the tip of the iceberg and this is what makes the fans hyped up for a new season.
Classroom Of The Elite is based on a Japanese light novel named “Welcome to the Classrooms Where Merit is Paramount” written by Shogo Kinugasa and illustrated by Shunsaku Tomas.
Due to its unique plot and world setting, the story got recognized and gradually started being serialized into manga, the first part by Yuyu Ichino and the second ongoing part by Shia Sasane.
The story follows from the perspective of Ayanokouji Kiyotaka who enters the Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School as a student of Class D. This school is dedicated to gathering and nurturing the generation of people that will support the country in the future.
As it may seem, this is no ordinary school. The students are given a high degree of freedom in order to closely use real-life principles.
Things really don’t go well for Ayanokouji who wanted to enjoy an ideal normal high school life thus getting entangled in all sorts of incidents. In the end, he is bound to use his abilities to keep things in balance at school.
As the light novel has portrayed the characters and events in a better manner, the anime got several criticisms for its story adaptation. However, it didn’t stop garnering huge positive feedback from most of its viewers.

The first season of Classroom Of The Elite covered light novel volumes 1,2 and 3. The second season covers light novel volumes 4, 4.5, 5, 6, and 7.
