Goblin Slayer is the man who saves the girl and then he along with Priestess, Dwarf Shaman, Lizard Priest, and others try to eliminate the goblins. The only purpose of Goblin Slayer is the eradication of goblins.

If the second season will earn a good profit then Goblin Slayer Season 3 will also be released, because there is enough source material available for the third season.
Studio White Fox might not continue the Goblin Slayer series because they are doing Utawarerumono in summer 2022. That’s why the new studio will continue this series, this will be a challenging task for any new studio to start from scratch. I hope that the new studio will maintain the quality of the anime.
