Atsushi Ōkubo has mentioned that the manga is close to its end and shared his plans of finishing it with volume 30, which is nearest, meaning he will possibly pay all his attention to the manga prior to starting work on the new season of anime. Hence, it would definitely take some time to release.

Fire Force Season 3 Plot
Let’s first take a dig into the storyline that the anime followed in the initial two seasons. The manga takes place in a future where continents have collapsed because of rising sea levels which also resulted in the disappearance of about 50 countries previously.
The story revolves around Shinra Kusakabe who is a third-generation pyrokinetic youth and was given the nickname “Devil’s Footprints” as he is able to ignite his feet whenever he wishes to and when he was a child, he was an outcast for the fire that took the lives of his mother and younger brother Sho twelve years earlier.
He teams up with Special Fire Force Company 8, which exhibits other pyrokinetic who devoted themselves to finishing the Infernal invasions for the better while investigating Companies 1 to 7 for probable corruption in their ranks.
Shinra starts to understand that the fire that took his mother’s life was a cover for Sho to be taken by the White Clad, a doomsday cult responsible for the Infernal invasions with agents within the facets of the Tokyo Empire.
Company 8 and their aides object to the White Clad whilst finding their objective to obtain 8 individuals like Shinra and Sho in order to repeat the Great Cataclysm for an ancient being who doctored mankind for that very goal.
Season one and two of the anime have given us an introduction to the battle of the Fire Force and their battle against the Evangelists. We can expect the new season to continue from where we left in the last season and build on that battle, which perhaps, will be the main target of the third season.
