Science Fell in Love season 3 renewal status
As previously noted, Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It has not yet been publicly renewed for season 3 by either the production team at Zero-G studios or the associated Japanese distributors – but what can we say about the renewal at this stage?
Anime renewals typically depend on two factors; availability of course material and popularity.
The good news is that the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It original manga series by Alifred Yamamoto is still ongoing. Since starting serialisation in 2016, the series has released 13 complete Tankobon volumes in Japan, with the latest three volumes being launched in January, April and June of this year.
This means that there should be enough source material to produce a third anime season of Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It – especially if the manga series continues to publish new volumes at its current rate.
Then we have popularity, which is a rather debatable subject for the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It anime. On the one hand, the series’ second season is scoring a respectable 7.5/10 on MyAnimeList and all episodes from season 2 are scoring higher than the series average on IMDB – positive news for the chances of season 3.
On the other hand, only 11,000 reviews have been registered on MyAnimeList, a score of just 5.66/10 can be seen on AniDB and the series barely scraped into the Top 10 at any point during the Spring slate on AniTrenz’s ongoing fan polls.
Domestic popularity in Japan remains difficult to analyse, with the upcoming Blu-Ray DVD and manga sales hopefully contributing positively to the franchise as a whole. Under the assumption that the domestic response to Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It is generally more positive than international demand, there is a good chance that the anime will return for season 3 in the future.

What date could season 3 potentially release?
The Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It anime adaptation was first announced in January 2019 and premiered in January 2020. Then, the second season was revealed in October 2020, making its debut in April of this year.
This puts a rough production cycle for the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It anime between 12 and 18 months – although the coronavirus pandemic undoubtedly slowed the development of season 2.
Considering both the availability of source material and the fact that Zero-G studios are only working on the Lady Napoleon series (release TBA), fans can expect Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It season 3 to premiere in either April or July 2023.
