Death Note Season 2 Release Date: Everything We Know So Far

It seems that Death Note Season 2 is trending all over the internet at the moment. It seems that after the resurgence of its long-dead manga, there are more chances for the return of the anime series. In recent days, thousands of rumors have been circulating about Death Note‘s anime sequel due to the controversial plot of the manga. I think that sounds pretty exciting. I mean, who wouldn’t think that? Thus, here’s everything you need to know about the sequel to the much-anticipated sequel.

In the 15 years since it first aired and up to now, Death Note has continued to become one of the most popular and successful anime series ever created. This film is based on the manga series of the same name by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, both of which are well known in Japan. 

From October 2006 to June 2007, 37 episodes of the anime television series adaptation were released in Japan. There have been dissenting opinions as to whether or not there will be a second season of the anime series. In spite of this, Madhouse, which produced the hit anime, remains secretive about the renewal. Could this be the turning point? Let’s find out what’s going on. 

What Could Be The Possible Plot Of Death Note Season 2?

As of this writing, there has not been any confirmation of a second season of Death Note. Until the official announcement is made, we will remain in the dark regarding the plot of Death Note Season 2. If the second season of Death Note is to be adopted, then it is most likely going to be a special episode of the manga. If such a thing happens, then we can expect a time jump as well as an entirely new villain and storyline for the second season. 

As I mentioned before, the first adaptation is about Light Yagami, who after becoming bored with the Shinigami world is given a notebook that is called the Death Note by Ryuk. Light decides to purge the world of evil by using the Death Note to kill all the criminals he wants, and he decides to write their names into the Death Note to make the world a better place.

It has been speculated that the new source material for season 2 may be Death Note: Special One Shot, which sees Ryuk return to the human world. In this instance, he approaches Minoru Tanaka, who is a smart and all-around good student in middle school, and reveals to him the Death Note. Compared to ten years ago, this time the world has already taken better precautions in response to the Kira incident.

Will Be There A Season 2 Of Death Note?

The sequel to the original Death Note anime has been awaited for a long time. It is rumored that Death Note Season 2 is already in production. As of right now, there hasn’t been any official confirmation that there will be a sequel.

There is no doubt that many of you wonder why it took Madhouse so long to come up with a second anime despite the massive popularity of the series. Lack of source material is one of the main reasons. There are 108 chapters in the manga collection, which is divided into 12 tankĊbon books. There was already a lot of source material used in the anime adaptation.

 In February 2020, Ohba and Obata published a standalone titled “Death Note: Special One Shot“. This standalone novel was set ten years after Kira, introducing a whole new plotline to the Death Note series. An anime sequel could be made from this source material.

When Will Death Note Season 2 Release?

 It is not yet confirmed if there will be a second season of the ‘Death Note’ anime, therefore a release date has yet to be determined. This article will be updated along the way as new news comes in, so be sure to check back for updates.
