What makes the isekai genre better? You pick some isekai titles out there and combine them into one anime! This formula seems to work perfectly, and that's why fans have been waiting for Isekai Quartet Season 3.
First aired in 2019, Isekai Quartet gained many fans worldwide with its unique takes on the isekai genre, plus the chibi art style that worked well. It is an original anime series produced by Studio PuYUKAI. Like the title suggests, it is the crossover between four anime series: Overlord, Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!, Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, and Youjo Senki.
The similarity between the four of them is the isekai genre. The source material, which is light novels, is published under Kadokawa. While the characters from those titles are the main characters in the series, other isekai characters from Kadokawa's light novels also appear.
The first season aired from April 10 to June 26, 2019, listed with 12 episodes. It continued with the second season, which premiered on January 15, 2020, and ended on April 1, 2020. The last season is also listed with 12 episodes.
Both seasons were successful; therefore, we won't be surprised if we get Isekai Quartet Season 3, right? So, here is everything we know about the series!
Will there be Isekai Quartet Season 3?
The answer to that question is yes; we will get Isekai Quartet Season 3. It is confirmed in the final episode of the second season.
The next question is who will appear in the third season? The second season added more characters from another series, such as The Rising of the Shield Hero and Coutious Hero. While not being the main cast, characters like Naofumi Iwatani and Seiya Ryuuguuin appear as guest stars.
That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime series is one of the fans' wishlists, but Kadokawa does not publish it, so the chance is slim. Other series that might make an appearance are Jobless Reincarnation and The Devil is Part-Timer. The first title is an ongoing anime series (for now), while the other gets the sequel next year.

Isekai Quartet Season 3 Release Date
Sadly, there is no official announcement about the release date of Isekai Quartet Season 3. Though, there is a movie that is coming in 2022.
We don't have any information regarding the format of the Isekai Quartet Season 3. The movie could serve as the third season, but we hope it is more than that.
At least, we know that it is already confirmed, and we will get it sooner or later.
Plot of Isekai Quartet Season
The first season follows the story of four protagonists from different isekai series. There is a sadistic military girl, Tanya Degurechaff, 16 years old protagonist, Satou Kazuma, the undead, Ainz Ooal Gown, and the NEET, Subaru Natsuki.
One day, in each isekai world, a mysterious button suddenly appears. Not knowing what the button does, they consciously (or unintentionally) press it, sending them to another world.
In this new isekai, four protagonists and their friends have to lead an everyday school life.
In the second season, characters from The Rising of the Shield Hero and Coutious Hero join the cast as new transfer students, thus making the story more chaotic than ever.
