Has Baki Hanma been renewed for Season 3? Here’s what we know:

Renewed or Cancelled?

Baki Hanma is one of the gems of combat sports anime as it takes us through the life of Baki Hanma, a young boy striving to be the strongest man alive. The title happens to be held by his own father, Yujiro Hanma. Baki fights his way up through many formidable opponents with the goal being to defeat Yujiro and claim the title for himself.

With the second season now coming to an end, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:


What is Baki Hanma Season 2 about?

Baki Hanma Season 2 starts with the introduction of the ‘Jurassic Man’, Pickle. Coming back to life after almost 190 million years, Pickle’s body has adapted to a very different lifestyle, making him an attractive opponent for most martial artists.

Baki is the final opponent to face him and manages to win using every technique in his book, clearing the path to fight his dad.

The second part of the season delivers the much-anticipated showdown between the father and son. The season ends with a definite outcome as Baki loses the fight but earns the title of the strongest man alive by gaining recognition from Yujiro and being accepted as his son.


Has Baki Hanma been renewed for season 3?

At the time of writing, Netflix has not renewed Baki Hanma for a third season. Given the nature of this anime series, that could change if it does good numbers for the streamers.

Generally Netflix, like other streaming platforms, gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before Netflix makes a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Baki Hanma has had a decent reaction from audiences and critics alike, with the series easy to watch and packed with action. The show is currently seeing decent reviews with a 6.8/10 rating on IMDB.

We predict that Netflix will renew Baki Hanma for another season considering the ending of the series.


What we know about Baki Hanma Season 3 so far:

Nothing is known about season 3, given this one has not officially been renewed yet. Should Netflix decide to greenlight this one, it’s fair to assume that season 3 will continue the unfinished subplot with a Sea King Retsu Saga.

It’s likely that Netflix will make an official announcement several months from now though, once the final viewing figures are in, but for now, we’ll have to wait and see. We’ll be sure to update this section with more information as it becomes available.
