Dr. Stone is a very unique and popular anime that has a manga adaptation of the same name.
Dr. Stone is unique as it mostly emphasizes the fact of knowledge being the true power. It also highlights that the growth of Science makes every individual, weak or strong, equal and worthy to the society in the modern world.
The anime has quite good ratings, i.e. 8.31 as per MyAnimeList and 8.2 as per IMDb. Its sequel Dr. Stone: Stone Wars also has a very good rating of 8.2 as per MyAnimeList, which increases the chances of us having a Dr. Stone S3.
We expect the announcement to be made soon, but before we get started with the release date, let’s take some time and take a look at the last two season and why we the anime deserves a third season.
We have also been hearing rumors about a Tokyo Revengers Season 2 getting announced soon.
Why Dr. Stone Season 3?
Senkuu’s dream to re-build the modern civilization has yet a long way to go to see the face of success. With Senkuu’s bold decisions, that dream is not impossible.
We are yet to observe the whole journey of the Kingdom of Science to the very end where probably Senkuu fulfills his dream and saves all of mankind but there are more hurdles to arrive.
Senkuu is also to discover many more hints left behind by Byakuya Ishigami and know the reason behind the petrification of all mankind.
Moreover, to resurrect Tsukasa, the hunt for the reason behind the petrification becomes the main concern. Can Senkuu really resurrect Tsukasa?
We are also to observe whether Hyoga and Homura, who are currently under captivation, will pose a threat to the Kingdom of Science or not.
Last but not the least, will we finally get to see Taiju confessing his true feelings to Yuzuriha? Speaking of feelings, will Chrome and Ruri find their ways to get closer to each other?
There are many more mysteries left to be unleashed which makes the chances of the arrival of Dr. Stone Season 3 abundant.

The story is based on an incident that took place 3700 years ago from the time the anime is set. A strange light devoured the whole world leading to the petrification of every single human, including swallows.
After discovering the solution to his de-petrification, Senkuu Ishigami, an intelligent worshipper of science awakens his friend Taiju Ooki who discovers the complete shattering of the modern civilization into the Stone Age.
Senkuu makes a decision to re-build the modern civilization from scratch with the help of science.
The story continues with Senkuu being forced to de-petrify Tsukasa, who turns out to have a different ideology from Senkuu and becomes his enemy.
Dr. Stone Season 1 and Dr. Stone Season 2 focus mostly on the war between the Kingdom of Science led by Senkuu and the Tsukasa Empire and we are left waiting for Season 3.
Dr. Stone Season 3 Storyline
Dr. Stone (Zoku-hen) or Dr. Stone Season 3 is going, to begin with, the ‘Source of the Petrification Saga’ where Senkuu and his mates set off for a journey to the source of the Petrification to find a way to revive Tsukasa.
We might also observe the formation of modern civilization with the help of science more elaborately in Dr. Stone S3 anime.
Yuzuriha and Taiju’s hard work of mending the destroyed statues might lead to the presence of more modern people in the Stone World.
We will also notice the encounter of the Kingdom of Science with a new and probably the toughest enemy Stanley Snyder in Dr. Stone Season 3 who might pose a greater challenge to team Senkuu since Stanley is believed to be as genius as Senkuu himself.
