Steins;Gate is a pretty confusing anime to follow. It is a very complex story that includes several games and an anime franchise and involves complex science, time travel, and alternative realities. The series consists of two proper anime seasons, an anime movie, an ONA series, and two OVA episodes. The last installment – Steins;Gate 0 – aired back in 2018 and wraps up the anime storyline, with the 2013 movie, Steins;Gate: The Movie − Load Region of Déjà Vu, taking place a year after the events of the 2018 anime. In this article, we are going to tell you whether you can expect a third season of the Steins;Gate anime.

As far as we know, there will be no season three of Steins;Gate, simply because the story is over, and there is no further need for additional seasons, unless the creators would come up with an original story. Namely, Steins;Gate 0 and Steins;Gate: The Movie − Load Region of Déjà Vu wrapped up the whole story and solved all the problems, so there doesn’t seem to be a need for further stories as far as Steins;Gate is concerned.

The rest of this article will bring you all the known and unknown information about a potential season three of Steins;Gate. You’re going to find out about its potential release date, whether there is a trailer, what the story could be about, and much more about this interesting anime series whose future is not very bright. If you’re not fully up-to-date with the series, we have to warn you that there will be a significant amount of spoilers in the paragraphs below.

What do we know about Season 3 of Steins;Gate?

Steins;Gate 0 brought the story to an end and closed all the open questions that had been open from before. This is why the third season of Steins;Gate is practically impossible since there is no story to continue. A third season could be possible only if the authors decide to craft a completely original story, but that doesn’t seem likely.

What could be the plot of Season 3 of Steins;Gate?

The plot of a potential second season of Steins;Gate is unknown since it would have to adapt a new story written by the author, and there is no such story. The anime series adapted a wholesome story with a proper start and end, closing the whole story. Still, we will bring you a brief overview of the series’ plot so that you know what you can expect if you want to watch it.

The action takes place in Akihabara and is about an experiment by the very peculiar scientist Rintarō Okabe, who has sometimes been described as insane. He manages to convert a microwave oven so that he can use it to send text messages into the past. However, what he only becomes aware of later is the fact that he is influencing his own present, and this is exactly what makes him seem crazy. However, he is not the only researcher in the field. He soon finds himself confronted with an organization called SERN, which is after both him and the other initiates of the experiment.

After repeatedly changing the future through this news, Okabe gets caught in a worldline in which his childhood friend Mayuri dies. He travels back in time to avoid her death and tries everything possible, but without success. Only when he consults with Kurisu he receives the decisive clue from her. He needs to undo all the text messages he’s sent so far.

But before Okabe is about to send the final message, he realizes that his love Kurisu is dying in the original worldline. With that thought, Okabe falls into a reluctant and desperate state because he doesn’t want Kurisu to die. After someone from the future tells him that Kurisu can be saved after all, Okabe’s final operation begins. In his first attempt, he fails, and Makise Kurisu dies. However, in doing so, he receives a message from himself from the future that gives him instructions for the plan. Ultimately, Okabe manages to rescue Kurisu and moves out of the original worldlines into the new Steins Gate line, where Mayuri and Kurisu survive.

What could be the cast of Steins;Gate Season 3?

We assume the protagonists would return for a third season if there were one. Many characters could make a return in a possible continuation of Steins;Gate, and they would probably return once more, along with a plethora of new characters. But, seeing how the world of Steins;Gate won’t be getting any additional stories, there is nothing to discuss here, really. The two main characters of the series, who would definitely make a return, are:
