As it stands, there is currently still no set release date for the third season of the hit anime television series, "Tokyo Ghoul." Despite the overwhelming demand from fans for updates regarding the development status of "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3, Viz Media and other companies involved in its production still continue to stay silent.
According to ICV2, the most recent update that was given was from Viz Media's own sales and marketing senior director, Kevin Harmic. The director mentioned in an interview that "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3, along with "One Punch Man" season 2, was going to be two of their biggest anime releases for 2017. The report, of course, elated a lot of fans, who have been waiting for the new season for a couple of years now.
Unfortunately, Viz Media immediately released a press statement that clarified Harmic's announcement. The company explained that Harmic actual "misspoke" as he actually meant to say "My Hero Academia" instead of "Tokyo Ghoul." The company also clarified that the two aforementioned anime television shows are actually their top priority for the year.
Based on the statement, it may be safe to assume that the anime's creators will be quite busy working on the two anime shows and may not have time to really work on "Tokyo Ghoul" season 3. Several reports have also claimed that the transition from Madhouse Entertainment to Pierrot Studios may also have contributed to the anime's delayed production.
Despite the lack of any new updates, fans are still quite positive that the third new season will be created, as per a report from Comic Book. There is still a lot of questions that need to be answered and there still needs to be a proper ending. The new season will most likely center on Ken Kaneki's new identity as Haise Sasaki. After having lost all his memories, Kaneki apparently applied as an Associate Special Class Ghoul Investigator.
