'Tokyo Ghoul' Season 3 Spoilers, News & Update: 'Tokyo Ghoul:re' Will Be Split In Half - Details Revealed
Fans feel like Tokyo Ghoul Season 3's, Tokyo Ghoul:re, run is quite faster than usual, but it is because the anime series is going to explore a lot of angles compared to its previous installments. In fact, in a tweet by Yonkou Productions, it revealed the show based on Sui Ishida's dark fantasy manga series' number of episodes and how it will be split in half.
"Tokyo Ghoul:re is actually 24 episodes split cour," Yonkou Productions tweeted about Tokyo Ghoul Season 3. According to ComicBook, "cour" means an anime series' seasonal batch with 12 or 13 episodes. These numbers usually complete one arc of the story.
On the other hand, an anime series with two cour splits up its episodes into two halves. Just like Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 with 24 episodes, it is expected Tokyo Ghoul:re will be cut in half or after 12 episodes. After that, the anime series is about to take a break and its second half might be revealed in October.
As Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 will be carrying 24 episodes that will cover a lot of stories, fans assume Tokyo Ghoul:re will show a big improvement compared to its predecessors. Aside from sticking to the manga series' original storyline and a huge character reunion, the show is also solving season 1's loose ends.

However, what makes Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 much better than its previous seasons is Tokyo Ghoul:re is connecting the anime series' Season 1 and 2. It has been said that the so-called "two halves" have been in a "sharp conflict" since the show started.
The time jump that happened between Season 1 and 2 give Tokyo Ghoul Season 3 a new start. In Tokyo Ghoul:re, fans will learn the mystery surrounding Haise Sasaki and his connection to Ken Kaneki. However, what makes it more exciting is the coming of the Quinx Squad of CCG. This is a group of high-level investigators carrying ghoul kakuhous in their bodies that are being controlled by a failsafe system. This system allows this group to produce power kagunes without the urge of the ghoul's hunger for human flesh.
In Tokyo Ghoul Season 3, Tokyo Ghoul:re, took a time jump, two years after the original series happened. It, too, follows the story of Haise Sasaki, a CCG member, and the special squad investigators' leader. However, little did they know that he is actually Ken Kaneki from the original series who is just suffering from amnesia.
