Sword Art Online season 2 ended back in December 2014. Since then, fans have been eagerly waiting for the next season to arrive. However, it now seems that Sword Art Online season 3 might not arrive at all.
The last episode of Sword Art Online season 2 aired on December 25, 2014. Since then, there has been no official word on when the next season of Sword Art Online will arrive. To be honest, we currently even don’t know whether there will be Sword Art Online season 3 or not. Because of this, the majority of fans believed that they won’t be able to enjoy another season of this critically acclaimed anime series. And now, the chances of that to happen have increased.
Sword Art Online Season 3 To Not Happen
Fans will be happy, as well as disheartened, to know that Skydance Television recently got the required rights to produce a live-action TV adaptation of Sword Art Online. Why fans will be disheartened? Well, this clearly hints that the studio will be now busy with the live-action TV series, meaning that they won’t have any time to focus on Sword Art Online season 3.
According to Variety, Laeta Kalogridis has been assigned to work on the pilot episode of Sword Art Online live-action TV series. Kalogridis is known for many of her notable works including the 2010 psychological thriller film, Shutter Island, and the 2015 science fiction film, Terminator Genisys. Along with Skydance’s CEO David Ellison, Marcy Ross, and Dana Goldberg, Kalogridis will also be the executive producer of the series. So fans definitely won’t get disappointed by the live-action TV series.
