Why trust us? Check out Fiction Horizon’s Editorial Policy.


Dr.STONE is a shōnen manga written by Riichirō Inagaki and drawn by Boichi. It was published in Shūeisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine from March 6, 2017, to March 7, 2022. An anime television series adaptation by TMS Entertainment aired between July 5 and December 13, 2019. A second season aired between January 14, 2021, and March 25, 2021. A two-part third season premiered on April 6, 2023, and is currently ongoing.

As fans will know, long-running anime series, especially manga adaptations, tend to add so-called filler episodes or arcs during their initial run. Filler episodes were popular throughout the 90s and early 00s, but they’ve become a relic since then. While the phenomenon is rare in modern anime series, we have still decided to tell you whether there are any filler episodes in Dr.STONE.

Are there any filler episodes in Dr.STONE?

As we have said above, fillers are quite rare in modern anime. They were common during the ’90s and early ’00s, when many series – practically all of them – had filler content, and some anime adaptations even completely changed the original manga and had a non-canon filler ending. Most of the fillers were not canon, although some have retroactively been made canon (Bleach is a good example, as the Can’t Fear Your Own World light novel made some of the filler arcs canon, at least partially).

As far as Dr.STONE is concerned, we can confirm that the series has 0 canon episodes, i.e., no filler content at all. This is not uncommon for contemporary anime series, and in that aspect, we can simply confirm that Dr.STONE is in line with modern trends. This doesn’t mean that the anime has no original content, but that content is limited to some scenes or dialogues and nothing else.

This doesn’t mean the series won’t have filler content later, but this is the current state.

Is Dr.STONE: Ryūsui canon?

One question fans often ask is the canon status of the Dr.STONE: Ryūsui special episode, which premiered on July 10, 2022. But, from this standpoint, we can actually confirm that even this special movie-format episode is canon.

The Dr.STONE: Ryūsui television special is canon and is integral to the Dr.STONE anime series. The special adapted manga Chapters 84 to 89, thus definitely confirming that it is canon. If you’re a fan of the Dr.STONE anime series, this special is a must-watch and something you cannot skip out on, as it continues the plot and bridges two seasons.

Dr.STONE is definitely special in this aspect, as most special episodes and similar contents are traditionally not canon and are filler works. Still, in the case of Dr.STONE, even this special one-off episode was canon and is an essential narrative moment, as skipping it will leave you pretty confused once you continue with the anime.
