Will there be a Season 3 of Code Geass?
Since the series ended in 2008, it has been almost 14 years, it got a renewal. After the success of its previous seasons and increasing demand, the fans are desperately waiting for a new season.
But unfortunately, season 3 will not happen as it has been on a pause for more than a decade now. However, the creators also haven’t announced anything regarding its renewal for a long time. In December 2020, many rumours came out that a new Code Geass anime project was in development.
But later it was announced that it would be a movie named Z of the Recapture. It was also announced the movie would not be following the storyline from season 1 and season 2. However, the release of Lelouch of the Resurrection movie in 2019 was phase 1 of the plan.
And It is assumed that the Z of the Recapture potentially will be the phase 2 of the plan.
If there will be a season 3 by any chance, its expected cast may be the old one only.

What will be the Plot of Season 3
As we have already told, the third season of Code Geass is not going to happen, so it is impossible to tell the expected storyline.
But we can presume that the story might revolve around an alternative reality where the Holy Empire of Britannia is slowly becoming a military-dominating nation. However, Japan lost the war against the tyrants even after resisting the rule for a long time.
It seems that the story will shift the focus on Lelouch Lamperouge, a former royalty of Britannia who found himself in a dangerous situation between the rebel forces of Area 11.
