This is one of the few series that somehow got a continuation despite the ln series already ending. Its really rare to see, which shows how popular it is.

Hopefully they give it a complete adaptation. It's not so common anymore but two 24 episode seasons and a movie could probably do it

I hope they use the less lewd art style, I disfrute the jokes more without excessive giggling distracting me.

Oh yes, one of my favorite comedies. New seasons are always welcome.

With the series over, that will never happen. My guess is it will be a new film adapting one or two volumes, or they will skip right to the end of the series to give it a real conclusion. Less likely, an OVA of the Megumin spinoff.

I would.t.be too sure. Oregaru and saekano both got complete adaptations after their source ended. Quints is also getting a final movie with the source completed. While anime is often an ad, it isn't always an ad and Konosuba seems to be profitable enough to justify more.

I'm actually really happy about this

On a side note I noticed funimation even posted this as well. Does anyone else think that's gonna cause confusion with people who are now (incorrectly) going to think funimation will be streaming it? (Obviously the crunchyroll deal could still happen but thays still not a certainty at this point)

CR is definitely getting this, they've got S1, S2 and the movie and it's one of their flagship isekais and definitely not gonna let any other services get it... Funi apparently hired a new social manager that's having all their writers copying what CR does which is reporting anything anime related regardless of what platform it's streaming on.

Ex. Funimation was writing articles heavily promoting Nagatoro and Eden Zero and CR and Netflix respectively yoinked it away from Funi.

We've seen a growing trend in the last 5 years or so that anime have been treated as their own products, not only because they're profitable on their own, but also because they keep a franchise relevant for longer, allowing them to keep other production committee teams happy with merchandise and advertising. Some older series are even reviving for continuation here and there on the simple fact that they're perceived to have stood the test of time. Whether the original work is finished yet or not matters little anymore.

It took four long years but these four lovable idiots are finally coming back!

And now three-fourths of the Isekai Quartet have new seasons in the works. At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Re Zero ends up getting a third season.
