On March 15th, 2017, it was announced that The Lion Guard will be renewed for a third season.
On 13th April 2019, Gary Anthony Williams announced that he was once again recording his lines as Mufasa, confirming the former King's return. As seen on a screenshot behind him, this also confirmed that Kion will be aging in the series.
On 1st May 2019, Ford Riley replied to a comment and informed people that Season 3 would hopefully be airing in August 2019.  He also stated that Fikiri and Kitendo will make their debut in episode 308 (presumed to be episode 8, season 3).
On 16th July 2019 the first episode, Battle for the Pride Lands was found on a few tv listings.
- One news report erroneously stated that Kuchimba would be a character that would debut in Season 3, despite him being a character that would debut in Season 2.
- Scar will be returning, though it is not known if he will be the main antagonist of the entire season as of yet.
- As a photographed screenshot shows, Kion will apparently be aging slightly.
