Classroom of the Elite‘s first season was one of the best anime to come out in 2017 and it left us wanting more. Thanks to a special event for Classroom of the Elite, though, it looks like the wait for more is finally over. Not only was Season 2 confirmed during the presentation, but Season 3 was as well.
With that all said, here’s everything we know about the upcoming Classroom of the Elite seasons so far!

What is Classroom of the Elite about?
Classroom of the Elite follows the students at Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing High School, a facility dedicated to fostering the best and brightest for the future of Japan. Here, students are given nearly complete freedom—but at a cost. To survive, they’ve got to get the grades, stay out of trouble, and be the very best, lest they be left with nothing.
Kiyotaka Ayanokoji is a quiet, unassuming student who doesn’t seem to excel at anything in particular. Stuck in lowly ranked Class D, he just wants to keep under the radar. But when everyone learns the harsh truth behind the school, he finds himself working to protect his classmates. Teaming up with the stoic, Suzune Horikita, Ayanokoji uses his own methods to help his classmates succeed and avoid getting expelled.
