Jujutsu Kaisen is regarded as one of the best anime of 2021 consisting of 24 episodes aired from October 3, 2020, to March 27, 2021. It was very popular when Jujutsu Kaisen was launched, I’m sure almost everyone has heard of this anime, and over time it seems like the fandom is only getting bigger and those fans were looking forward to it next season. So, are we going to get a second season of JJK soon? Let’s find out below.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date: When is it?
JJK has been renewed for a second season. A fan asked the series creator and writer Gege Akutami if season 2 was in development, to which he replied, “They are doing a season 2 for the anime TV series! Thank you very much for everything !!! To all readers, viewers, and people involved!!!”
In January 2022, MBS President Yoichi Mushiaki shared that the anime series’ prospect is certain but fans will have to wait a bit for season 2.
Anime News Network revealed that he said, “For now, I would like you all to wait for us to lay out a concrete plan. However, I believe that we can provide a development that will meet expectations.
A few weeks after Mushiaki made this statement, it was officially announced by Crunchyroll that the second season of JJK will be released in 2023 although an exact release date was not provided.
JJK fans who have seen the recently launched movie titled “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” are thirsty for new episodes of the anime series, so expect new updates to be released in the coming weeks.
