Noragami is a Japanese anime TV series by the Japanese studio, Bones. It is written by Deko Akao & directed by Kotaro Tamura. It is a mix of emotions & genres beginning from comedy, action, fantasy to adventure. This series has it all to receive love from anime fans.
Noragami has got 2 seasons till now. The first season has a total of 12 episodes that aired on 5 January 2014, & ended on 23 March 2014.
The 2nd season of Noragami aired after a year on 2 October 2015, and ended on 25 December 2015, and has a total of 13 episodes.
It has been 6 years for this show and there is no Noragami season 3 yet. Will there be a season 3? Yes, there will be Noragami Season 3 but you need to be patient enough and wait for the production to finish and make it all official.
Without Noragami Season 3, we cannot guess if Yato will get a million worshippers to the shrine. But we have the full-volume book but I think anime fans would like to watch it more than read it.
Studio Bones did a good job with the two seasons of Noragami and we are sure they will do well with the upcoming season 3. It is just a matter of time before anything official comes up.
Everything related to Noragami season 3 is present in the article but firstly, we will take a quick flashback into the past.
Hiyori Iki, a small school girl tries to save someone from the accident but she loses her soul. But she becomes Ayakashi, a person knowing about another world & this becomes her superpower & she travels to both sides of the world. One world is with humans, animals & birds & the other one is of demons and other people who die & do not belong to Earth.
Once she travels to the other world, she gets in touch with a God and this God takes 5 yen as the fee to accept the human wishes. Also, he takes these fees to build his own temple for his worshippers.
When Hiyori knows about this god, she meets him and asks for a wish & wants him to bring back her normal soul again. She didn’t want the traveling soul but she wanted her original life back. Since Hiyori was so genius, Yato wanted to be with her & so he made Regalia meet her & then the adventures began.

Season 3 Of Noragami: Yes Or No!!
Till now, there is no concrete information on the show renewal but it does not mean there will be no upcoming season! There are good chances of getting the Noragami Season 3 but there is also a slight chance of it not coming up if we take the status of blu-ray sales of the Noragami Season 2. The blu-ray sales were quite low but it is still expected that we will get a brand new season soon. Also, the profits & sales of this anime series were not up to the expectations and this makes it a loss of business for the creators of the Noragami Anime.
But we think they will take a risk & produce it for the fans. Their fan base is strong enough to take this risk and make the upcoming Noragami season a worthy one. Hope and wait for the Noragami team to make something official.

Noragami season 1 has the story for volumes 1 to 3 & season 2 is from volumes 4 to 9, so now there is 14 manga left for Noragami season 3. So, by pure maths, we can see there are high chances of Noragami Season 3 being on-air any time soon. Just like one punch man.
