'Tokyo Ghoul' season 3 release date, spoilers: has the popular anime cancelled?

Will fans ever see Ken Kaneki in "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3?Studio Pierrot

Due to the lack of update on "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3, fans are now starting to think that a new season of the anime may not happen at all.

Following the negative feedback to the second season, which shied away from the manga by Sui Ishida, it is now feared that "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 may not happen.

There has been a lack of updates on the anime, although it is believed that "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 is still very well in development.

There were even rumors that there will be a new protagonist in "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3, Touka Kirishima, who is a ghoul and a friend of original protagonist Ken Kaneki.

It is being reported that the new season of the anime will explore Touka's journey to college, which proves difficult from the beginning as she attempts to choose the university she will go to.

Meanwhile, there are also rumors that "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 was simply delayed due to the upcoming live action film inspired by the manga and anime.

The movie will be in production later this year, with a premiere early next year. The movie will tell the origins of Ken and Touka.

Despite updates on this project, there's no concrete news on "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3. As far as solid details go, the season is practically unannounced, let alone the development for it.

For some, it will be remiss that the show will end without redeeming itself to fans who detested the second season, which reflected nothing from the manga.

The first season of the anime was praised because it was loyal to its source material and fans were hoping that "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3 will be the same way.

However, until official information comes out, fans will simply have to play the waiting game to learn if there will ever be a new season for the anime, whose manga counterpart is continuously becoming more popular.
