A title reveal video for Dr. Stone Season 3 was released on Sunday following the one-hour Dr. Stone: Ryusui special. The upcoming season is titled Dr. Stone: New World and will begin airing sometime during the Spring 2023 season.
Season 1 of the anime was first announced in the 51st issue of Weekly Shonen Jump back in 2018 and began airing in 2019. Dr. Stone: Stone Wars (Season 2) aired from January to March during the Winter 2021 season a couple of years later. This past Sunday fans received the hour-long Dr. Stone: Ryusui special that also gave fans a new version of the opening “Good Morning World!” performed by Burnout Syndromes from Season 1.

Dr. Stone (manga)
The Dr. Stone manga created by Riichiro Inagaki and illustrated by Boichi officially ended earlier this year after 5 years of serialization. Dr. Stone ran for 232 chapters over the course of 26 volumes. The series also released a special, 53-page chapter last week that was topped off with an open-ended conclusion, teasing the possibility of a spin-off or sequel to the series. But in the meantime, fans will just have to wait for Dr. Stone: New World (Season 3) to air next year.
Dr. Stone officially reached 13 million copies in circulation last month. The manga took home an award in the shonen category at the 64th Shogakukan Manga Awards in 2019 and was voted onto Barnes and Noble’s “Favorite Manga List” a year earlier.
