The production team for season three retains many of the staff who worked on the first two seasons. Makoto Moriwaki (PriPara) serves as a director for the series after handling the role for previous seasons. Kazuyuki Fudeyasu (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2) is the series screenwriter and script supervisor. Yumiko Hara (Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season two co-character designer) is the character designer and Akimitsu Honma (Wotakoi: Love Is Hard for Otaku) is composing the musical score. Bandai Namco Pictures is in charge of the animation production. 

Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun is based on Osamu Nishi’s demon school fantasy manga series, which was first serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shounen Champion on March 2, 2017. 28 tankoubon volumes have been released as of August 8, 2022.

NHK Enterprises describes the synopsis of the third season as:

This time it’s the jungle!

Human boy Suzuki Iruma becomes “grandson” to the great demon Sullivan and begins attending demon school where “Grandpa” serves as chair. Winning friends — and rising in demon rank, too — Iruma thrives in his new environment, overcoming the harrowing ordeals thrown his way! In the new season, further challenges await… 

It’s harvest season, and time for the annual test where students wade into the expansive and extremely dangerous jungle to compete for food!! Classmates become rivals, and what erupts is a gargantuan battle of brawn and wits?
