It looks like something is cooking for Mob Psycho 100 and fans think it will be Mob Psycho 100 Season 3.
The series’ animation director Yuzuru Tachikawa recently asked fans for something unknown. So, what does it have to do with Mob Psycho 100 Season 3?
The franchise’s Twitter account itself is starting a mysterious countdown that nobody knows about.
A Mysterious Hint of Return
Fans are hoping Tachikawa’s tweet and the countdown are a subtle confirmation that season three is now in the works.
After the second season ended in 2019, there are no words if Shigeo Kageyama will ever return on the small screen.
Anyhow, it went on to have two subsequent original video animations that continued its story, Comicbook noted. The first one was Reigen the Miraculous Unknown Psychic, which explored the supporting character.
The second one was The Spirits and Such Consultation Office’s First Company Outing, A Healing Trip that Warns the Heart.
Though the manga already ended in 2017, fans are still looking forward to seeing more animated Mob adventures in Mob Psycho 100 Season 3.
By the looks of it, Tachikawa is now hinting at its return with his cryptic tweet. He also joined the anime’s countdown, which made everyone believe that a new season would soon be announced.
Mob Psycho 100 came from the same One Punch Man creator, ONE. These two anime series both concluded with season two and its fans were all waiting for renewal.

Season 3 Possible Plot and More
As the anime series remains faithful to its source material, Looper noted fans already have something in mind of where Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 will go.
The manga has 16 volumes and some Redditor fans revealed the first two seasons divided the first 12 volumes.
As one season usually covers six volumes, four volumes are still left for the third season to explore.
The final four volumes contain the last two full story arcs. As the second season ended with the Divine Tree’s appearance, growing from the broccoli seed that Mob kept in his pocket, it was the same event that concluded in Volume 12’s World Domination Arc.
So, the third season can adapt the Divine Tree Arc, the Telepathy Mini-Arc, the ???% Arc and the manga’s epilogue.
This only means fans may see Mob facing the Divine Tree and witness his full ability.
If ever Mob Psycho 100 Season 3 will come, this will be the end of the saga.
