Noragami Season one was premiered on 5 January 2014 and had 12 episodes in total. The second season had 13 episodes and was premiered in October 2015. It was expected that the third season would release in 2016,but that didn’t happen,and from then, we all are waiting for the third season to be announced.
The story of Noragami features Hiyori and is very popular and well-appreciated anime. There is a total of 71 chapters in the manga,and only 38 chapters have been used in the first two seasons of the series.So, there is a lot of material to cover which is enough to create two more seasons in the series,but the question is, when is it going to happen?

The way the second season ended, we have a lot of speculations about the story-line,and we’re eagerly waiting to watch more adventure. There are rumors that season three can come anytime in early 2019 but nothing official has come from the makers. BONES Studio or the producers didn’t drop any hint about the release or the production work on the upcoming season.
Noragami Season 3: Characters
All the main characters will return for the third season. Iki Hiyori (main female character), Kazuma (one of Bishamonten’s Shinki), Phantoms (creatures that come from the Far Shore), Mayu, and many others will be there in the third season.
IkiHiyori is an average middle school girl and the main female character of the show. One day, she meets with an accident while saving a stranger(Yato) after which she becomes Ayakashi (a person who can travel to two parallel worlds- Far shore, a place where souls and demons live and Near shore, where living beings live).
She then travels from one world to another,and while traveling, she meets Yato, a minor God.Yato doesn’t have his own temple and many followers, so he takes five yen as a fee from the mortals to accept their wishes. He does so to collect money,and with that money, he wants to build his temple where his followers could worship him. Hiyori becomes familiar with Yato and requests him to fix her body so that she gets rid of traveling to two different shores all the time. She is tired of her soul leaving her body from time to time and wants to live a normal and happy life.Yato says that he will fix it,but he has other plans for her.
Hiyori also meets Yato’s Regalia, Yukine and the three become good friends gradually and enjoys various adventures together.
Noragami Season 3: Spoilers
There are many things that the third season can focus on. These are just the speculations,and we are not sure about any of these,but we can expect that the story could go in some of these directions.We can witness Yato’s dark past. Also, in the second season, there was a random guy who kissed Hiyori. Probably, we get an answer to the question- who was that guy? He could be Yato’s father in disguise,but it would be interesting to see how the story turns out after the identity of the man is revealed.
Also, Yato wants a lot of followers and worshippers, so he is looking for allies that can help him achieve his goal. Yato’s previous Regalia, Nora may also be seen in the upcoming season.
