We had some exciting news in January 2020 that Log Horizon will air their third season in October 2020. With the recent announcement of the selected anime series continuing production after the lifting of the emergency status in Japan, this is certainly a respite from the various waves of delays for many anime productions originally scheduled for Spring and Summer this year.
The latest, long-awaited third season for Log Horizon’s favourite fans has now been a victim of delays due to concerns about COVID-19 exposure for production staff. Reporting from Crunchyroll, Monday (15/6), the series titled officially Log Horizon: Roundtable Collapse has been postponed until January 2021.
To make up for the delay, the official website and Twitter have also been updated with new key visuals, which can be seen below.
Log Horizon’s third season staffing is as follows:
Director: Shinji Ishihira
Series Composition: Toshizo Nemoto
Sound Director: Shouji Hata
Music: Yasuharu Takanashi
Production Studio: Studio DEEN

The flames of discontent continued to burn between the guilds, with the struggle for power, differences, and speculation that occurred between adventurers.
Finally, the crisis will come to the round table, a symbol of unity with the adventurers …
