Fans of the Code Geass series are desperately waiting for Code Geass season 3! If you are one of those fans then, you are in the right place. Today, we will give you all the information you need about Code Geass season 3 and tell you when it could be releasing.
An exceptionally good anime with a legendary protagonist, I present “Code Geass /Lelouch” The anime Code Geass aired back on October 5, 2006. Almost one and a half-decade have passed ever since its anime debut and the fan base has always been ever-growing.
Code Geass Season 1 & Season 2 Plot
Let me summarize the plot in a few sentences, After defeating Japan and renaming it as Area 11, the Holy Empire of Britannia continues to assert its dominance as a superior nation. In the midst of all of this, a new demon (Lelouch) emerges with the power of a king. Lelouch realizes the potential of this new power and tries to reclaim Japan from Britannia. He creates the black knights and establishes himself as Zero (the leader of black knights).
With two seasons of 25 episodes each, (Lelouch of the Rebellion R1, and R2) Code Geass ended on September 28, 2008. It was a genuinely good and unique series in terms of plot, the animation was a little outside the box (in a good way), not to mention the fight scenes and fans’ favorite “All hail Lelouch!” All of this made Code Geass one of the few masterpieces of all time.
In 2012, the OVA series “Code Geass: Akito the exiled” joined the anime world. The OVA comprised of 5 movies and the plot takes place between the 1st and the second season of Code Geass.
On the final episode of the second season, the 99th Emperor of the Holy Britannia Empire, “Lelouch vi Britannia” was murdered, and the anime ended with world peace as the villain “Lelouch” who posed a threat to the entire world was now dead. The one who killed him was Zero (Suzaki, to be more precise).
When will Code Geass season 3 premiere?
Many fans may not believe it but Lelouch has actually been dead all along. Fans think that he was alive and he had even become immortal, and I do kind of agree to all that. In the alternate ending of season 2, we even saw him driving a carriage with C.C lying on the straws.
The foundation for all of this was the theory that Lelouch had acquired Charles code after killing him.
But, in the ending that was actually used, they didn’t show who was driving that carriage. Which means the studio wanted to go with the fact that Lelouch is dead.
Now, let’s get onto the Code Geass season 3 “Fukatsu no Lelouch” (Lelouch of the resurrection).
On the tenth anniversary of Code Geass, the director himself confirmed that there will be a continuation of the series and it will take place years after the second season ended.
Before this sequel, there will be three recap movies (A trilogy).
- Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch I – Koudou
- Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch II – Handou
- Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch III – Oudou
So, basically these movies were supposed to cover both the first and the second season as well as replace some of the old plot points with some new ones. All three of these movies have been released and they actually turned some of the plot upsides down (Not in a good way).
Code Geass Season 3 Release Date:
So from what the director said in 2016, the third season otherwise known as “Code Geass r3: Lelouch of the resurrection” was supposed to happen now as all three of the recap movies with some new plot points have been released.
What did we get? Instead of a full-fledged season of 25 episodes, all we got was a movie.
- Code Geass r3: Lelouch of the resurrection (released on 9th February 2019)
This movie confirmed that Lelouch had kicked the bucket and have been dead all this time. In this movie, it happens “C.C resurrects Lelouch”. In addition to that, there is a little fan service, a new enemy with a Geass that makes others believe he is an ally. And that’s all.
After all that hype, after all those theories. After all those discussion forums. This is all we got!
Not only what we got was only a movie, but it also isn’t even a sequel to season 2 of the anime. It is a sequel to that trilogy of three movies.
