The team behind the anime hasn't provided an official synopsis for the sequel yet. However, considering season 2 ended the adaptation at chapter 59 from Tatsuya Endo's manga series, fans can expect Spy x Family season 3 to pick up the events from chapter 60.

In other words, the anime will likely cover the remaining chapters involving the WISE Arc, and move on to the Friendship Schemes Arc. The latter arc focuses on Yor Forger making an unlikely friend, while Anya tries to strengthen her friendship with Damian Desmond.

Additionally, the upcoming installment may adapt the Red Circus Arc, which runs from 69 to 78. More arcs can be adapted, but it depends on whether the series airs for a single cour or two cours.
