It’s been a long time since we last saw Baki on Netflix, but fans can rejoice to learn the news that Baki will be returning to Netflix with the third season in June 2020! Fans will also be hyped to hear that not only has Baki been renewed for Season 3, but a fourth season will also be on the way!
Baki is a Netflix Original anime based on the manga Baki The Grappler. The franchise has been immensely popular for almost three decades now since debuting in 1991. With multiple animes already to its name, the Netflix title has arguably become a fan favorite amongst anime fans in general and hardcore Baki fans. Arriving on Netflix Japan first in June 2018, it wasn’t until December 2018 when the series arrived globally.
Baki Hanma traveled the world to hone his skill as a fighter with the intent of surpassing his father as the world’s strongest martial artist. Five of death row’s most brutal and violent inmates are gathering in force to take on Baki with the hope that he will annihilate them, having grown bored of their own strength and thus with life. To support their friend, martial artists that Baki has met on his journey join him to fight by his side in the world’s deadliest tournament.
Baki Season 3 Netflix Release Date
We previously believed that the next season of Baki would be airing in Japan before making its arrival on Netflix later this year, but thanks to the official Baki website we now have confirmation that Baki season 3 is arriving in June 2020!
It’s unclear if all episodes will be available to stream, but judging by the use of the wording in the announcement we’re expecting to see one new episode every week from Thursday, June 4th, 2020.

Does this mean we’ll be receiving a fourth season?
Yes, it does! In Japan, Season 1 consisted of 26 episodes (listed as Part 1 & 2 on Netflix Japan) but for the rest of the globe, the season was split into two. Assuming another 26 episodes are on the way the third and fourth seasons will each receive 13 episodes.

After the delayed wait for Season 2 fans were pumped to see it drop on April 30th!
