Renewed Or Cancelled?

After the exciting finish of the anime adaptation which took over the early 2000s, Bleach is back after a decade with a sequel. Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War season 1 began in late 2022 and, instantly a year later, we got Part 2 in 2023. 

Well, after watching Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 – The Separation, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:


What is Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War Part 2 – The Separation about?

As Ichigo and the Soul Reapers start training in earnest, the second cour ‘The Separation’ follows the battle that takes place between them and the Wandenreich led by Yhwach who wants to take over the world in 9 days. Part 2 – The Separation comes to an end on September 30, 2023 with a one-hour special for the exciting battle.


Has Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War been renewed for Part 3?

At the time of writing, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War has been renewed for Part 3 officially.

Well, it is good news and bad news. Not only is the anime returning after a decade, but it has also been decided that we will get 4 cours/parts. But the sad news is that the anime will be coming to an end after Part 4.

But since we have the light novel, Bleach: Can’t Fear Your Own World, we can also get a spin-off based on the novel after the anime adaptation of Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War. It focuses on the characters and how they are faring after the Blood War.


What we know about Part 3 so far:

Since a manga has several storylines broken up into different arcs, the animated adaptation usually takes on 1 or 2 arcs each cour or season. Each cour of the Thoursand-Year Blood War arc adapts around 50 manga chapters. So you can read the second half of the final arc from around chapter 580 chapter if you are a sucker for spoilers.

Part 3 is currently set to air in October 2024. You can watch a trailer for Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War below.

We’ll be sure to update this page if there are any changes on this front.
