7 seeds is an anime series released on Netflix in 2019 in the sci-fi and survival genre. The anime series is based on a long-running manga written by Yumi Tamura. Anime, that’s a ON A series, is made by Gonzo Studio, which has been in this industry since the early 2000s. In June 2019, studio Gonzo transferred part of its properties to Studio Kai. This studio has prepared the second season of the series and news from Studio Kai is expected for the third season† The final season of the anime, a Netflix original production, aired on March 26, 2020. Now the fans are curious; Has Netflix or Studio Kai renewed the anime for a third season?
What is the storyline of 7 Seeds?
In the near future, a giant meteorite collided with Earth. All living organisms, including humans, were wiped off the planet. In anticipation of this outcome, the government has taken measures against the worst-case scenario. In particular, it was “Project 7SEEDS”, where five sets of seven young men and women were carefully selected and placed in teams (Spring, Summer A, Summer B, Autumn and Winter). Each participant was then put into cryogenic sleep in hopes of preserving the survival of humanity.
When these men and women awoke, they suddenly plunged into a cruel world. They tried to find ways to survive while loved forever and mourned their loss. 7 Seeds tells the story of a group of young people who wake up at the end of the world. Shy Natsu and the others engage in a fierce battle to find a way to survive in a changing world.
Will there be a season 3 of 7 Seeds?
From December 4, 2021At the time of writing, neither Netflix nor Studio Kai have renewed the series for season 3 yet. We’ll keep an eye on the news for you. When the confirmation arrives, we’ll share it with you, but as there’s no official announcement as of yet, we’ll be speculating about the third season based on some key factors. There are some main criteria for anime to get approval for a new season. These are the manga they use as source material and its popularity.
Manga status of the anime
7 Seeds is the anime adaptation of Japanese manga written by Yumi Tamura, as we mentioned earlier. The manga aired on Bessatsu Shōjo Comic in 2001. A short broadcast of 1 year and then continued for years on Flowers. The manga has been published for a total of 16 years and consists of a total of 35 parts. The story is currently completed and the manga is not underway.
On the other hand, the anime quickly took the chapters of the manga in the first season and included 16 volumes. Fortunately, in the second season, the story got deeper and only 4 parts were used. In total, the anime covers 20 parts of its manga. There are still 15 parts left. In summary, we can say that the series has enough source material for one or two seasons. It’s about how fast the story will progress in the possible third season.
Popularity and other factors
Disc sales are also very important for anime companies. However, no 7 SEEDS discs were sold. Netflix has acquired the streaming rights to the series, and the confirmation of the upcoming new season is directly linked to how long Netflix users watch the anime. Although the series aired on the Netflix platform and got the approval of the second season, it is still not famous worldwide. The absence of Crunchyroll distributorship may also affect this as anime enthusiasts don’t usually use Netflix as a platform. However, several viewer profiles found the opportunity to closely follow the anime.
To see the actual popularity of the series, if we look at the popularity in Google searches, we see that it is lower than the average search volume compared to other anime series. It is very difficult for an anime to get a new season endorsement in this popularity. The financial effects of the Netflix license and the fact that it was able to get a new season approval earlier keep the new season possibilities alive, but still, it’s unlikely.

When is the 7 Seeds release date?
With a simple estimate, there should be news from the new season of the anime by then. However, the situation is a bit different in anime. While there isn’t much time between the first two seasons, sometimes there can be a few years between them. There have been no leaks about a new season of the anime in 2021. We hope that in 2022. If we see an extension in 2022, it may be possible to get a new season in 2023† We will update this part of our article as soon as there are official updates.
