The third season of Classroom of the Elite is coming soon, and a new trailer has been released to hype up the fans. The trailer shows the main characters, including Kiyotaka Ayanokoji from Class D and Arisu Sakayanagi from Class A, who were left together at the end of the second season. The anime is produced by Studio Lerche, who also revealed a key visual of the pair. You can check out the trailer and the visual below:
The upcoming season will follow a special exam that involves all the grades. The students will have to form mixed-grade groups and achieve a minimum score to avoid expulsion.

What’s more, every month, the school awards students points with a cash value of 100,000 yen, and the classes employ a laissez-faire policy in which talking, sleeping, and even sabotage are permitted during class.
