According to Animedia August issue, producer Nakayama Nobuhiro said the OVA series "Shakugan no Shana S" is followed by the third season.

Nakayama said:

We launched "Shana Project" with a view to ending the Shana anime series. Before moving on to the third season, we need to describe the backgrounds and the relationships between the characters more in detail. So the project began with the OVA series.

Not really, it doesn't really add anything to the plot.

Yes, season 3 will definitely be aired, but the exact date when it starts isn't set yet. It may start airing in fall 2011 or winter 2012.
However, from what I heard, season 3 will be very different from its prequels. I heard that it may involve a dark Yuji and Shana fighting against him.

OMG!!! ....
hope jk-staff wont f*ck up this sequels as they did with total zero 2nd and 3rd season

well, It'll be good to see another season. As long as it is nowhere near as drawn out as season 2.

So.. there IS going to be a third season right? Season one was amazing, then i was stuck halfway enjoying season 2.

All i will say is this. At the end of season one Shana and Yuji walked into death itself together. Then, for season two to revert to nearly the beginning point of their relationship, and give virtually no relevant action until over halfway through the series. I heard someone say they used the time to develop relationships when all i saw was them rehashing the same ideas in season one. It was a far inferior product to the first season.

I don't know how good the novels are, but something tells me the anime strayed from it in season two. A novel as pointless as the first part of season two would be pretty boring.

I saw that the OAV was finally finished in November, and with that being said is there any DEFINITE proof that a season three will be aired?

Awesome, gonna look forward to this.

Shana has just gone straight downhill since the first season.

They need good WRITERS. And not the B-list animators at JC staff to animate it. And by b-list I mean don't outsource the entire project.

I'm hoping for a surprise, but not expecting much.

WHERE IS MY DAMN SHANA ALREADY?
Shouldn't Shana fans be happy that Kugimiya Rie is working in Index II? Besides, Index has almost all the bases covered in terms of fantasy and action for this season. J.C. STAFF will just reserve Shana 3 for next year (since they will likely let Railgun and Index rest so they can make another season out of each).

Every season of Shana up until now has started in October. My bet is on October 2011. (Besides, JC Staff is doing Index season 2 for this season and the next)

i'm gonna have to agree, shana has always done well as a fall show, so i doubt that they will change the formula this late in the game
