When will the sequel to the anime “Fruits Basket Season 3” come out?

As we recall, the original source was released in 23 volumes, including 136 chapters. The first two seasons did not tell the story of the main characters in full. Do not forget that Natsuki Takaya became the author of 3 more manga, which she called “Fruits Basket another”, “Fruits Basket: The Three Musketeers” (in 2 parts). So is it really worth worrying about continuing the anime series?

Looking at the fact that the first two seasons came out with a break of exactly one year, season 3 of the anime “Fruits Basket” is expected in April 2021. But given the pandemic and other delays, the premiere of new episodes is likely to be slightly rescheduled.

Plot

Tohru Honda is an ordinary schoolgirl who wants to get only good grades. Her beloved mother was always with her. But one day she dies under the wheels of a car. Left alone, relatives take up her upbringing. Only the girl is not ready to burden them with her presence, so for some time she decides to live in the forest, in her own tent.

One day, Tohru, on her way to school, stumbled upon the home of her classmate Yuki Sohma. The guy is known in the school as the first handsome – almost all the girls in the school dream of him. But he does not share such a high mark with them. The guy considers himself uninteresting and boring.
