The special will follow Ryusui through his daily life and his way of life after the end of the second season of Dr. Stone, an anime-original special that could be meant to tie the two seasons together. While the special was shown at Jump FESTA, a report of the content is a little hard to find.

When is Dr. Stone season 3 out?
Season three of the anime will be released sometime in 2023, after the special’s premiere. Considering how the Ryusui special could act as an introduction to the third season in addition to the bonus chapter, it will be interesting to see how they adapt the rest of the manga as the series recently ended serialization.
Will they adapt the remaining chapters of the manga to one season, or will they draw it out? We’ll know in 2023!
What does the future hold for the series after Ryusui?
Warning: Major Spoilers For The End Of The Dr. Stone manga below – if you haven’t read the series front to back yet, then read no further!
dr. Stone is in a bit of an odd position, having ended the serialization on a cliffhanger at a won’t-they-won’t-they prompt for Senku, where he plans to go back in time to prevent the petrification ever takes place by building a time machine using the Medusa – a perfect prompt for a continuation in one form or another!
Will this be covered in the special chapter? Will the special chapter tie in with the Ryusui special? Will there be a spin-off manga about Senku’s new adventures? Or will Dr. Stone end with the third season and live on as an admirable example of a shonen?
We don’t have those answers yet, unfortunately, but it all seems to stem from that upcoming special chapter – stay tuned for more!
