“DR. STONE NEW WORLD” SETS SAIL FOR APRIL 6, 2023 PREMIERE ON CRUNCHYROLL
Crunchyroll Will Also Launch the English Dub of the Anticipated Third Season of Dr. STONE on April 20, 2023
Dr. Stone was one of my favorite new animes when it premiered. A mixture of science fiction, and fantasy, the series also brings in real-life science to all of its story points especially as it involved Senku trying to rebuild the world with science. In fact the topics were so on point to real science that each episode comes with a warning not to try these things at home. The characters are memorable and the mystery is interesting enough but with millions of years gone by, the world left behind without science has a lot of catching up to do.
Now the new season is coming to Crunchyroll. Senku and his Kingdom of Science will embark on a new journey across the sea when Dr. STONE New World premieres around the globe on Crunchyroll on April 6, 2023 at 7:30 AM PDT, which will simulcast new episodes every Thursday from Japan.
Along with a brand new trailer reveal of the upcoming third highly-anticipated season, Crunchyroll can confirm the English dub will begin premiering on April 20, 2023 at 12:30 PM PDT with new episodes every week. Additional dubs from Crunchyroll will also include German, French, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Castilian Spanish, and Italian, with launch dates to be announced at a later time.
Concretely established in a post-apocalyptic world based on the popular manga series of the same name, written by Riichiro Inagaki and illustrated by Boichi, and serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, Dr. STONE New World is directed by Shuhei Matsushita (Dr. STONE Ryusui) with animation produced by TMS Entertainment, who are known for MEGALOBOX, Fruits Basket (2019), ReLIFE, and Kamisama Kiss.
