What do we know about Season 3 of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time?
Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time is a manga series written and drawn by Daisuke Hiyama. Serialization began in Futabasha’s Monthly Action magazine on August 25, 2017 and is still ongoing. The chapters have been collected in tankōbon volumes since January 12, 2018; currently, there are 11 volumes. In North America, the rights have been acquired by Seven Seas Entertainment.
Announced on September 25, 2019 in Futabasha’s Manga Action magazine, an anime adaptation, produced by Wolfsbane and directed by Tatsumi, aired in Japan between July 10 and September 25, 2020. The script was written by Nora Mōri, while the character design was developed by Rui Ishige. The opening and closing themes were “Tsuranuite yūutsu” by Yui Ninomiya and “Yoridokoro” by Hilcrhyme respectively.
The series was streamed and simulcast by Crunchyroll and Sentai Filmworks on HIDIVE in other parts of the world. On November 11, 2021, it was announced that a second season went into production. The second season, titled Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time: Super Extra, sees the return of the same staff and cast, and with Seven serving as a secondary animation studio. The opening and closing themes are “Kurenazumu Yykusoku” by Isekaijoucho and “Koigokoro” by Hilcrhyme respectively. It premiered on October 10, 2022.
Taking all of this into account, the future of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time seems quite solid, despite the fact that we still don’t have confirmation of a third season. The source work is, as we have said, fairly popular, as is the anime series, and the fact that the franchise has a large fanbase makes us very hopeful. In addition to that, we know that the manga is not over yet, which means that there is a lot of material to adapt. The second season is currently airing so it’s a bit early for an official confirmation, but we’re pretty sure that Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time will be getting a third season sometime in the future.
In any case, the earliest we could see a potential third season is 2023, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2022 or early 2023; 2024 is also a solid possibility. The fans are demanding a new season, but we’ll just have to see how it goes and how well the movie does; as far as things stand now, a continuation is possible, but we simply don’t have any official information to confirm our suspicions.
What could Season 3 of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time be about?
At this moment, we do not know how far the third season of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time could take us because we don’t know how many additional chapters of the manga series the season could potentially adapt, nor do we know where the second season is going to end. Namely, due to a lack of information in general, we have absolutely no clue how far the third season of the show might go if it even happens. What follows is an overview of the original material so you can get a rough idea of what you could expect from the series.
The adventurer Peter Grill is considered the strongest man in the world and hopes that with this title he will receive the blessing of his girlfriend Luvellia Sanctus’ father for an engagement. However, this fails due to several obstacles. As an adult, Luvelia still believes that the stork brings the children, so their relationship isn’t about holding hands.
Her father, the head of the local adventurers’ guild, is overprotective, insane, and will do anything, no matter what the cost, to torpedo his daughter’s relationship with Peter. Above all, however, Peter is urged by various very attractive monster girls to give them strong children. These are: the two ogre sisters Mimi Alpacas and Lisa Alpacas, the Hochelfin Vegan Eldoriel, and the Ork-Dame Piglette Pancetta. Since Peter is as mentally weak as he is physically strong, he often succumbs to their seductions or blackmail, only to regret this in the period of “post-coital clarity”.
What could be the cast of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time Season 3?
It’s still too early for us to discuss a potential third season of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time in terms of cast and characters, simply because we do not know whether there will even be a third season. But, seeing how we know that the series is going to have a more-or-less fixed cast, we really don’t expect to see too many changes in the structure of season three, if it ever happens. Now, the main characters that have appeared in seasons one and two, likely to return for a third season, include:
|Character||Japaese voice actor (Seiyū)|
|Peter Grill||Hiro Shimono|
|Luvellia Sanctus||Yui Ninomiya|
|Mimi Alpacas||Ayana Taketatsu|
|Lisa Alpacas||Hibiku Yamamura|
|Vegan Eldoriel||Akari Uehara|
|Piglette Pancetta||Sayaka Senbongi|
