Get excited, folks, because the latest season of Dr. Stone is drawing to a close. As the Kingdom of Science embarks on a journey across the oceans, new challenges, enemies, and allies await. Senku’s mission to bring back everyone who was frozen in stone for thousands of years continues in Dr. Stone: New World.

If you’re wondering when Dr. Stone season 3 will be ending, here is everything we know so far.

When will the third season of Dr. Stone end?

The third season of Dr. Stone began in Spring 2023, with the first episode airing on April 6 in Japan. The season was split into two non-consecutive cours, with the first batch ending in June 2023. The second half of the season aired as part of the Fall 2023 season, with the first episode airing on 12 October and new episodes dropping on Thursdays each week on Crunchyroll.

With 22 episodes making up the full season, we expect the final episode of Dr. Stone season 3 to air on December 21, 2023.

The Dr. Stone: New World release schedule is:

  • Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 19 - Last Man Standing – Expected on November 30, 2023
  • Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 20 – Expected on December 7, 2023
  • Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 21 – Expected on December 14, 2023
  • Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 22 – Expected on December 21, 2023

When Dr. Stone season 3 finishes airing in December 2023, there will still be enough material for at least one more season of the anime, with several more chapters ready to be adapted. The Dr. Stone manga ended in 2022, so fans already know how the story is going to end.

However, there hasn’t been an announcement for the fourth and (probably) final season of the anime. With the third season remaining popular both in Japan and with international audiences, we wouldn’t be surprised to have an official announcement shortly after the third season ends.
