For the generation that grew up with the series, the collective hope for ComicCon this year is an announcement for Dragon Ball Super Season 2 to be announced. The Dragon Ball series created by Akira Toriyama began Dragon Ball Super after the conclusion of the Majin Buu Saga. The Manga for Dragon Ball Super began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine V Jump in 2015. The manga is illustrated by Toyotarou.
The anime series produced by Toei Animation ended in 2018 after Goku reaches the Ultra Instinct Form but was followed up with the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly which was released in December 2018.

Dragon Ball Super Season 2: Rumours and Possibilities
Toei Animator Florence Jay Dominguito when asked about the release of Dragon Ball Super Season 2 said that he is looking forward to the possibility of a release in the coming future. He has been working with Toei Philippines since 2011 and has been featured on the official website for Dragon Ball. Vegeta’s Japanese Voice Actor Ryo Horikawa recently tweeted that he was in a meeting about Dragon Ball Super but will not be revealing the details. The suspense is real!
Dragon Ball Super Panel At ComicCon@Home 2021
The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has forced yet another Comic Con into the virtual space, but as it is essential, stay home and safe everyone! ComicCon@Home 2021 has a panel for Dragon Ball Super that is raising hopes for fans. While there are no official announcements for the series continuation yet, it is hoped that the panel will make a favourable announcement for the return of Dragon Ball Super Season 2.
Dragon Ball Super Season 2 Release
The new Dragon Ball Super Movie is expected to release in 2022 after it was announced to be in the works this year. Given that the production team will be working on the film for most of 2021, it is unlikely that Dragon Ball Super Season 2 will be coming even in 2022. Hoping that ComicCon@Home gives us a clearer timeline and sound announcements, along with production, the anime series could release no sooner than 2023.
Season 1 had a 131 episode run for 3 years and left at the Universal Survival Arc. The manga has naturally moved further and is currently at the Granolah the Saviour Arc. Dragon Ball Super Season 2 will begin with the Galactic Patrol Prisoner Arc and will be introducing some interesting new villains.
Dragon Ball Super Season 2 Cast
From what is known as of now, the Cast of Dragon Ball Super Season 1 will be reprising their roles in the upcoming season:
- Masako Nozawa/ Sean Schemmel as Goku
- Masako Nozawa/Kyle Hebert Gohan
- Mayumi Tanaka/Sonny Strait as Krillin
- Takeshi Kusao/Alexis Tipton as Trunks
- Aya Hisakawa/Monica Rial as Bulma
- Toshio Furukawa/Christopher Sabat Piccolo
- Masaharu Satô/Mike McFarland Master Roshi
Here’s to hoping Dragon Ball Super gets a new season announcement soon! Stay tuned for more updates and let us know how hyped you are for the release!
