And with its third season, ‘Railgun’ has gone above and beyond everyone’s expectations. Instead of being a pushover of the original series, ‘Railgun’ now has an identity and fanbase of its own.
Since ‘A Certain Scientific Railgun’ has been doing so well, it comes as no surprise that fans are already eagerly waiting for its next installment. Well, if you, too, want to know about the prospects of its renewal, read on further.
