Originally, this season was supposed to air in the year 2023, but due to some reason, they had to delay it. The previous installation of the anime had 12 and 13 episodes, so it would be safe to say that this will have something around it.

According to the trailer, it will conclude the First Year Arc. So far, it has covered till Volume 7.5, and this arc ends at Volume 11.5, End Of A Year.
The post-credit scene of the last episode of season 2 ends with Arisu Sakayanagi confronting Ayanokoji and telling him things like she deserves the role of burying the masterpiece of the White Room.
