‘The Way of the Househusband’ is a slice-of-life comedy ONA series that is based on the Japanese manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Kousuke Oono. The show follows a feared yakuza boss named Tatsu who decides to quit the crime world in order to lead a normal life with his significant other, unaware of the comical troubles that he is inviting. As he tries to adjust to his new reality, the banal life of the protagonist is often disturbed and sometimes made interesting by the continuous interference of his old acquaintances.
The anime first premiered on April 8, 2021, and impressed viewers and critics alike with its comical anecdotes and engaging storytelling. After the conclusion of its second installment, you must be wondering when the show will return with another season? If that’s something on your mind, then we have got you covered.
The Way of the Househusband Season 3 Release Date
‘The Way of the Househusband’ season 2 dropped in its entirety on Netflix on October 7, 2021. The second installment comprises five episodes with a runtime of 17-19 minutes each.
As far as the second season of the slice of life anime is concerned, here’s everything we know so far. Neither J.C.Staff nor Netflix has yet officially confirmed the show’s renewal as of now. Although it would be too early to say anything about the second season (part) of the show, the first did manage to fetch good ratings and overwhelmingly positive reviews. After watching the latest released episodes, it’s tough to argue why that won’t be the case with the second installment.
Furthermore, Netflix has lately been investing heavily in anime, and it has acquired the streaming rights of some highly anticipated shows like ‘Komi Can’t Communicate’ and ‘Blue Period.’ The platform is unlikely to change its aggressive acquisition strategy any time soon; therefore, the chances of the show’s renewal look very promising. Assuming the series is greenlit for another installment in the coming months, we can expect ‘The Way of the Househusband’ season 3 to release sometime in Q3 2022.
