The Way of the Househusband Season 3 Plot: What to expect?

In the previous season of The Way of The Househusband, it didn’t end on a major cliffhanger compared to most anime. It’s also because this anime is more like a laid-back, kind of relatable life event. 

If a third season happens, it’ll focus on the lead character and showcasing the usual and boring stuff and reflecting their amusing personality. Miku will likely earn a paid holiday at her workplace and go to Breman Farm with Tatsu, where they will enjoy sightseeing, spending quality family time. Meanwhile, the previous gang lord will encounter his neighbor unexpectedly, this may lead to a new friendship.

The Way of the Househusband Season 4 coming back?
