Darker Than Black Season 3?

The internet is starting to buzz about the possibility of a 3rd Darker Than Black Season, all because of a post on 2chan, or something along those lines. As it stands, it's all baseless rumors and here say, but I think that a third season is a real possibility. Darker Than Black seems to be quite the popular anime, in Japan itself and internationally, so I can't imagine why they would stop riding that money train.

If you haven't had the chance to check out the series yet, now is definitely the time, as every Darker Than Black property is licensed and readily available. All of you lovers of Science Fiction or Supernatural anime will find Darker Than Black is right up your alley.

Personally, I love the series, and am very excited about the possibility of seeing more of it. Season 2 was a bit disappointing when compared to season 1 and the OVAs, so hopefully the third season will redeem the series and pick up the storyline.

Here's to hoping that this will turn out to be true, and we'll get to see some more of our favorite contractors this fall.

Comments

  1. I sire hope its real. The end of the secend season left me with more questions. Do yin and HEI EVER ESCAPE THE Syndicate?
    Does Misaki catch HEI AKA BK201?
    Does the threat over contractors end and hells gate is then finally torn down?

    If there is a third series i hope it goes back to the long series season 1 had

    1. If i recall at the end of season two that Hei had killed Yin in order to prevent the end of the world or something along those lines and also the syndicate is dead..replaced by a new one with Misaki and Mao and Madame leading it....you did see season two right O_o???!

      Delete
    2. yes in teh ending hei kills yin and walks off, then misaki,mao, and the madame are the syndicate* and there is that one kid in the coffin that is in hells gate.

      Delete
    3. the syndicate collapsed under new rule and is no longer around Misaki and her partners only came to be known as the syndicate even though they really aren't. hells gate was destroyed but yet another gate was opened.
      They left it completely open for another season but they also left it as a decide what happens for yourself ending. right now a third season is really up to the creators. I personally hope that they do another season and i strongly diagree with anyone that says season 2 was a disappointment, I thought is was great and suou made an incredibly strong character. also the likelihood of her appearing in the next season is very slim because she lives on the earth that chion created.

    4. Did you see Darker Than Black: GAIDEN ? 'cause on those OVAs it's explained what happened between the first and the second season...

      Delete
    5. there isn't any proof that he neccasarily killed yin in the end of season 2 it showed him walking off with her.

      Delete
    6. Yeah im not so sure that Yin is dead but it seemed like July came back to life with white hair making me think he's gonna be the new Izanami(He did start to evolve at the end).

      Delete
    7. Also yin told hei it wasnt to late then he smiled ,then his star came back really bright? also member she was granting wishes , what if by chance he wished to be with her , like july wished to be with that lil girl,idk just something i thought was an option

      Delete
    8. Yin didn't die the prophosie said that izanami was pregnant the kid there was the new being and it even said july and sou left to the new world shion made plus i dont think hei killed yin i think he save yin somehow

      Delete
    9. I believe that season 3 will be happening since there is still lots of mysteries For Example: 1)what happen to Hei and Yin 2)What will the syndicate after since they say *IT IS JUST THE BEGINNING* but the possibility of the season 3 will be slim since a lot of contractors gone to the new world SO my saying will be 50%-50%

    10. Camon people DtB is beyond a great show. Why is it... simply because DtB actually thought of thought of using common sense in a sci fi anime. Forget the constant lines of post anime analysis you guys are the shit... For realz y not make Darker than black 3 not that typical prequel bullshit, that would so be the shit...

      Delete
    11. To be honest i wouldn't mind a prequel, I'm interested in learning the life Amber and Hei lived and in seeing Hei's sister in action.

      Delete
  2. Definitely want to see another season! Though honestly I'd actually like something of a prequel in storyline terms - what happened with Hei, Bai, Amber, Carmine, etc in their lives *before* Heaven's War (and, of course, I'd like to see what happened during Heaven's War too). Everything on that in the series is so vague, it just makes me intensely interested. :D
    And a return to the season 1 format would be welcomed, as well. Though it's hard to do, I'm sure.

    1. I agree with you, DTB was a great anime and it left many openings for the studio to do more work to fill in the gaps esp with Heaven's War and how even the characters came about. But these days its hard for studios to get back to older animes they produced due to money woes/current projects/staff moved on to other things in life...but one can hope and dream!!

      Delete
  3. Therefore i conclude that there be no Season 3...
    sad to say but that life..
    I Love the Series Personally..

    2. I agree, dubs are always so awful compred to the japanese voice acting not to mention they change shit and make it more childish.

    3. What about rurouni kenshin and Trigun, not all dub is bad.

      Delete
    4. Gotta disagree. Dubs are bad... No matter which kind it is.

      Delete
    5. Agree most dubs are bad however they seem to be improving, dub Hellsing ultimate is alot better than Japanese because they just can't pull off the different European accents. Trigun, Hellsing - ultimate, DTB, cowboy bebop, Deathnote and Fullmetal Alchemist.

      Dub will continue to improve because I think anime is taken alittle more serious in the west today especially with the couple of western movies and games getting anime type additions.

      PS. Japanese voice actors make too many stupid noises.

      Delete
    6. I agree on the last statement where Japanese Voice actors make too many stupid noises. Most of them sound like they choke on something that get's stuffed down their throat at random intervals.

      NOW WHERE'S MY SEASON 3?!

      It won't happen will it? :C

    7. Not this year, at least. Maybe we'll get more solid news after BONES is done publishing its current stuff. October may actually be a month where news comes out, if we're lucky.

    8. I actually prefer dubbed, I do not think they are bad at all, but to each their own.

  5. Arghh, I would love for there to be a Season 3, but I'm not going to hold my breath. It seems that so many of my favourite animes are only two seasons long, so I'm figuring this one is no different. Does anyone else feel like the Japanese have perfected the art leaving you unsatisfied? No sexual innuendo intended! ;)

  6. The way i see it the evolved doll at the end of season 2 is He/Yin's child. If you remember how Yin kept wanting to hold that couple's baby in the ova Then you would agree. Plus the Gate grants wishes just like misake wished to see Hei one more time n she was floating over them watching Hei & Yin. So Yin really wanted a baby with Hei, her wish was granted, thus comes the bringer of the apocolypse, if they are keeping some nature of the mythology DTB is based on. Plus the wish gives and takes, so its a possibilty the gate granted her wish but gave an evil child instead, which Hei now has to stop from destroying the world. I think thats the perfect Season 3 right there. Hei vs his son in an all out battle to save the world. Wouldn't you agree? Besides that i believe season 2 was better. It gave a story unlike season 1 which was all about character development. People are never satisfied. Sometimes change in direction is good.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In this case a change of direction was NOT good. The majority agrees.

      As for your take on the ending, I guess it could be... But I am more inclined to think that Izanagi and Izanami had a deal, Izanagi would create an alternative world for Suou to live in, while Izanami needed Izanagi to create the bringer of the end, in turn Izanami would send Suou to the alternative world where humanity could live in peace, leaving the world they were on to destruction. As for Yins part in this, its probably non-existant. All she wanted to do was stop the ending of the world. That failed even at the cost of her life(unless Hei didn't kill her and again picked a third option, leaving Yin alive and the destruction of the world imminent.)

      Season 2 was way too disconnected from the first season, and shifted the focus from Hei to Suou which was not a good change. I don't know how many times I facepalmed whenever Suou summoned her panzer sniper rifle, cause it was the same fucking video everytime copypasted everytime and it reminded me of a goddamn sailor moon show. She didn't feel like a contractor with hidden powers who could utilize them in secret, other contractors would've had plenty of time to down her before her sniper rifle got out of her chest but they didn't take the opportunity and got shot in the face as a result.

      Oh the pink...! THE PINK! MY EYES!!!
      Goddamn Suou. I'll deal with her for this season, but she comes in and steals Hei's spotlight again, I am going to murder and bury this series deep in my forget box.

      Delete
    2. I don't usually write replies, comments or whatsoever but I really have to say this: I totally agree with you regarding suou's rifle summon scene. That. Is. So. Irrelevant.
      I really did wonder out loud about what the sailormoon is this.

      And the ending. Oh wow. I really do hope Hei picked the third option again..I really like Yin..

      Delete
  7. i think season 3 will be since they left so many parts uncovered on the anime but well anything could happen nobody knows it is weird that the creator of this anime stopped doing it since they made this anime in 2009 and its 2012 and we are about to be on 2013 i seriously doubt about a third season but fate changes if they were to create season 3 they must also make a movie about it... BECAUSE I THINK IF THEY DO THAT THEY COULD BE SEATING IN A HUGE MASSIVE PILE OF GOLD!!!!!!! and i liked all the women characters like suou pavlichenko,yin.amber,kirihara,etc.... thank you please support this anime :)

  8. does anyone know if/where the anime links to the manga. like all of you there are many unanswered questions in the back of our mind if anyone knows where they link and could also post some links. i know youll make a load of people happy.

    SIDE NOTE:
    im still hopeing for a season 3 aswell. this is one of the best ending anime's iv watched so far they ended it with enough detail not to get me annouyed as to not knowing exactly what comes next. which is a nice change from some of the one season series that didn't conclude

    1. The Manga is crap.
      The Manga sequel to the Anime is fucking AWESOME.

      Darker than Black: Shikkoku no Hana(Jet Black Flower)

      It continues from where the first season left off, but it has no connection to the Gaiden OVA or the second season... Apparently its a different direction of the story, it's own arc so to speak, an alternate story with no connection to the OVA or the Anime's second season. Creators stated so.

      Delete
  9. I really enjoyed the second season and the first season, and I can certainly see why anyone would want a second season! I certainly want a second season! I know Bones said that they were creating something that had to do with a "familiar series" so that implies really one of three series that they have done. I liked the action in season 1 better, but I liked the focus of the second season more, the emotional side of becoming a contractor. If they could mix both together and make the next season as long as the first then I will be a very happy man!

  10. Ok whoa whoa whoa there has to be a season 3 or some explaining, the whole anime is based off of japanese mythology. And the kid at the end isn't Yin and Hei's child. That is kazanagi, yin was izanami. The child is created from the beings Izanami and Izanagi. Kazanagi is supposed to be the end of the world but Izanagi stops him. It is hinted that Hei is Izanagi so therefore if another season were to continue, it would be about Hei stopping the end of the world which would make for a great story since we don't know if Yin is really dead. It showed Hei carrying the "white" Yin which was not Izanami so therefore he could have saved her. I am hoping so bad for a season 3 to answer this cause I just want HeixYin </3

    Replies
    1. i agree with you completely and would just like to add i think its pretty much certain hei is izanagi mostly because when shion pavi meets yin and/or izanami he just dies like every contractor before him but due to his ability to replicate things, an ability which cannot be used against himself izanami had to make him use his ability to an extent that the payment would kill him, and it is only after hei comes into contact with izanami that the new being is born. also i do not think yin is dead i believe hei used his ability to seperate yin from izanami choosing a third option similar to what he does in season 1

  11. god damn i need season 3 i have watched all the series and ova twice and im starting again im so addicted i need moar

  12. I hope they make a third season but I want Hei as the main character again...not some little girl kid that falls in love with Hei. I hope Yin did not die and they have Hei x Yin again ♥. I really hope Suou is not in the third season if they decide to make one. Hei and Yin are the only characters I would like in the third season...too bad Amber died (I think) because her character was so cool.

  13. They definitely set up for it at the end of season 2.

  14. I wonder if Suou and July will be in season 3?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. probably not because, july is dead and suou and another non-doll july are living in the world that shion wished for suou.

      Delete
    2. I highly doubt it but I don't think it's impossible. After all, during the finale of season 1, we saw a lot old faces from the beginning of the series (the fire-contractor-girl that we met etc... etc... ) so they might show a small flash IF a season 3 ever comes out.

      Delete
  15. I really don't want to think that Yin is dead at the end of season 2, although it is a possibility. Hei (or Pai)'s power is not only electricity, but molecular manipulation, so it's ALSO possible that Hei was able to seperate Izanami from Yin at the molecular level, and carried Yin's UNCONSCIOUS body away. At least, I hope that's what happened. (Team Hei&Yin!) I also hear that the 3rd season might be a prequel; about Hei, Pai and Amber's time in Heaven's War... It would make sense to do that, but I really hope the creators choose to extend the plot instead of backtrack!! :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If the 3rd season is a prequel... That could mean the events after season 2 could be a 4th season :O It seems quite logical, you have both the story lines that could be exploited, so in theory there should be at least 4 seasons. I for one would love that :D

      Also I don't think Hei killed Yin, he did carry her UNCONSCIOUS body away, not her dead body (as the guy above me has said), and guys (If you are guys, if there are women here just gender swap ;) ) if you had a girlfriend or a girl you loved, and you she had some thing in her that was FUBAR the world up, but you had molecular superpowers, would you kill her? Or use them powers? (serious face)

      Delete
    2. Are you pulling the same shit metal gear solid did? Going from sequel to sequel to prequel to sequel to the sequel? That always puzzled me.

      We don't know if he carried Yins UNCONSCIOUS body away, for all we know it could've been her dead body. Also to answer your question:

      If I did have molecular powers and my gf was FUBAR'ed, she would be FUBAR'ed and hence could not have been repaired/retrieved/fixed. FUBAR generally means something is fucked up beyond all repair/recognition/retrieval. To be honest though if those molecular powers would save her but cause destruction on the world, I would still save the girl. Then attempt to save the world later. Makes for a more interesting story to fix up a FUBAR'ed earth.

  17. The last episode had me stumped! I was very confused why netflix had no more episodes for it when the last episode did not explain enough. I was thinking they did not licence the last episode or something. However I was wrong. I stumbled over here in this blog reading every ones confusion. However an ending like that for a rich story is just not enough. I was at the edge of my seat watching this show. Hope they make another series

    ReplyDelete
  18. A third season could happen they left enough cliffhangers at the end of season 2 to write quite a bit. I don't think Yin is dead either as somebody said Hei also can change things at a Molecular level so it is possible that Hei separated the good Yin from the the bad. Also that was July that came back to life at the end but if you noticed he had Yin's eye color and hair so maybe after Hei separated good Yin from bad the bad Yin took over July's body...hmmmm. As for Suou I dont think she would be in season 3 at all if they made one because of Shion's wish for her she is living on the world Shion made for her. There is enough at the end of season 2 to make a season 3 and if they do make season 3 a prequel of everything that happened before then this series can just keep growing and growing if the writers play their cards right.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Right...
    I am hoping for a season 3 as well, but to expect a new series starting in october is a little optimistic. We MIGHT hear something about it in october considering October is the month Eureka Seven: AO is supposed to end (Another series that BONES publishes), but before that ... Naw.

    And I am like the rest of you guys, looking for answers that may never be found. I was very disappointed with the second season, as I am not much of a Suou fan and found her to be an annoying brat most of the anime. They should shift the focus back to Hei for the third season, I want to see more of the black reaper in action (with that mask!) like in season 1. I'd also like to know what kind of whatthefuckery they pulled on us at the end and how it all wraps up in the end.

  20. i just want a season 3 for hei and yin loving. i dont really want a prequel because i feel as they should just incorporate it within the season(plus i kinda hated amber...) suou story was so ridiculous i mean she was 13 and fell in puppy love with hei. i just want the black reaper back with a lot less of this fantastical fluff

  21. theres not going to be a season three...studio bones is making some tempest show in October not dtb. ugh why do people spread baseless rumors and get people's hopes up???? i am so disappointed never give your heart to a anime because there will never be closure...

    1. Might be a season 3 if people make enough noise... But that is never gonna happen. If Bones won't listen to the current amount of noise (I think its a good amount of noise atm and have been for the past years) then they are probably never going to listen... Too bad though, economically they could've made the series a cash cow and destroyed it in the process HAHA.

  22. maybe some day...2013? i just don't understand why they aren't making it. logically it would make sense: its popular and would make a lot of money. Since its been 3 years, soon 4 since the sequel, do you that killed any likelihood of a season 3? grrr this is frustrating me and i just watched so i haven't even been waiting long. could you just tell me if yin and hei get the happy they deserve studio bones!?!?!?

    1. I think it's a question of if they can gather their old staff and convince the creator to keep writing the story... Or something. Since people have a tendency to move on to other things in life while making a living. I suggest you read the manga Darker than Black: Shikkoku no Hana. Its a manga adaption of an alternative second season that replaces season 2 and the OVA entirely. It's quite satisfying... Even though its a little short, just 4 volumes of 33 chapters. Still a good read and had a much more satisfying ending than Season 2 did.

  24. For those wondering where Yin and Hei are; they are in Yins wish, which was for her and Hei to be together for eternity, Hei did kill Yin to stop the Calamity.

    At the end of Gaiden Izanami says to Yin that in the end she will grant her wish as well, which was to be with Hei forever.

  25. I absolutely love the series. The first season was a godsend. The second season was good too? I liked Suo but not so much that I enjoyed her as a main character? I hope that Yin is alive somehow, someway. And I would love to have a third season but if not, I'm content with what we were given! Though I wish the second season was a little more cohesive.

  26. What a sad stories. Im also love this anime, but its really really crazy.
    1st: Contractors is cool, but they dont have a heart, and their jobs just complete some mission from uncontractor, just like a killing machine. So that the bad guys are the uncontractor.
    2nd: Is about suou, i like suou, but i was really shocked when heard that suou is a copy, she got the second chance to live but also as contractor without feeling and at the end, she have lost all of her memories. Even she continue her life with peace, but not in the original world. Just like the movie inception or source code. those are cool movies but i really dont like the false world. Im just feel like better to let her die than live in false world
    3rd: I dont know what yin really is, where did she come from. I thought she was a normal doll.
    4th: its about uncleared ending. what really happen to hei at the end.

  27. I JUST WANT HEI TO GET HIS POWERS BACK AND KICK SOME ASS because he lost his fucking powers in season 2 which made it suck so i stopped watching in the 3rd episode i fucking pissed off right now hei is suppose to be the main character how could they make him lose his fucking cool powers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Well I'm exited at the possibility but it is hightly probable that the'll leave it where it is. The story is kind of wrapped up, but there's still room for improvement. I think that fans will have to request another season. All I can say, though, is that if there's another season then Mao had better find another cat's body and get out of the F@$#ing squirrel.

  30. Yin is not dead. Hei uses his molecular manipulation powers to extract izanami from yin. If yin dies according to legend it should be her child that kills her not Hei.

  31. I am seriously wishing for a season 3. Don't the creators see what's going on here,I mean seriously add it up! Lots of fans + a season three = a lot of $$$$$ (or £££££). They have left so much unexplained they could even get a season 4 if they wanted to. It dosen't have to be a complicated story line just tie up loose ends in season 3 and season 4 would be ready to be taken in any direction.
    I'm guessing I'm not the only one addicted to these series. I'm literally down on my knees begging. If they even just ended with a season 3 but with a satisfyig ending I'm happy... Okay I'm done ranting.

  34. Honestly, when i started watching i assumed that this anime would have several seasons, and several hundred episodes. Out of all the anime ive seen, Darker Than Black has one of the richest plots, excellent character development, and an awesome concept. I cant wait to see more episodes.

  35. The third season is supposed to take place five years before the first season and is set up in South america so my guess is we are going to find out more about the gate. I do not know for sure but I heard it is coming out this October.
    I am not positive this is true however this is what I have been hearing around.
    We can just keep our fingers crossed and wait but I am very excited to find out for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Some of you don't seem to quite understand the second season. All the hate I have seen over season 2 comes from not understanding it. I hope I get all the names spelled right... Ok, firstly, we know that Izanami granted the wish of Shion that another world was created and many of the characters(July, Suou, and many others) had their life forces removed and put into the new world. Yin is probably still alive because we did not actually see her die, we just saw her being carried away. I would like to see Hei and Yin united, but if they were united, then I think the show would lose some of that "addictive tragedy." Also, if season three is to be a prequel, I would like to see November 11th sometime, along with maybe February and July.

    ReplyDelete
  37. And now it is 2015 and still no season 3.
    It's difficult to understand why bones wouldn't follow through with this considering they set it up in the last episode. Some might say that they did that to end the show as mysteriously as they started it.

    However I like to think that one day they will bring it back without warning to settle things for good.
