The excitement for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 anime is real! It has not been officially renewed though Jujutsu Kaisen ended Season 1 with the tagline “To be continued”. Considered to be the best Shonen anime that possibly can be made, Jujutsu Kaisen is guaranteed to make a comeback with a new season. It is only a matter of some time before MAPPA makes revelations.
Jujutsu Kaisen was first serialized in the Weekly Shonen Jump in 2018, received another volume titled Jujutsu Kaisen Volume 0 in 2019, and finally released as an anime adaptation in 2020. Needless to say, its popularity blew straight through the roof. The manga series itself has about 50 million copies and has gone ahead to be one of the best-selling manga there is.
Jujutsu Kaisen is one of those anime that you cannot miss nowadays. From a ragingly popular manga series by Gege Akutami, an anime series, an upcoming movie, and a recent mobile role-playing game announcement, it is definitely taking over.
Jujutsu Kaisen has a huge viewership as one of the most popular releases of the past few years. It can be gauged from Jujutsu Kaisen ranking 33 in the best anime category of all time. On platforms, it is rated 8.8/10 on IMDB, 4.8/5 on Crunchyroll, 8.77/10 on MyAnimeList. The popularity index of the masterpiece is a sufficient reason to get a renewal.
As far as source material is concerned left to be adapted, Season 1 ended at chapter 64 of Volume 8. Jujutsu Kaisen manga has in total 143 published chapters. It can safely be concluded that there is enough material to last for another 2 seasons till Jujutsu Kaisen Season 3.
Now the question is – When Are We Getting Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2?
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date Predictions
With the upcoming mobile role-playing game and Movie 0, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is definitely on the cards. But, there is no official announcement, trailers, or teasers from makers. The Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 of the anime was produced by MAPPA, known for popular series like Yuri On Ice!! and Attack on Titan (in its final season). As far as production delays are concerned, the pandemic has hit schedules but there is very little information that is available on the series right now.
However, that doesn’t stop us from speculating and predicting. We can take the production schedule of Season 1 as the baseline. The announcement of Jujutsu Kaisen season 1 was done in late November 2019 and it dropped in October 2020.
Making an assumption that MAPPA will follow a similar schedule, fans can expect Season 2 to premiere in December-2021 if you go by the buzz in the anime community. If MAPPA misses the Winter slate then the next likely one is April-2022 on the Spring slate.
With the confirmed news of Jujutsu Kaisen Movie 0 already in production, there is a high probability that Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 release date might be pushed until mid-2022.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 episode list
Jujutsu Kaisen Manga is an ongoing series with 15 volumes published. Movie 0 covered Volume 0 and Season 1 of anime series released in 2020 cover volume 1-7. This means that ideally, Jujustu Kaisen Season 2 should cover the manga from Volume 8 onwards. The anime community generally responds very positively to an adaptation that respects the manga story. Hopefully, this series will continue to do the same.
Season 1 for Jujutsu Kaisen anime series released with 24 episodes in 2020. In Japan, it premiered on MBS and TBS at midnight and later on streamed on Crunchyroll for global fans. Each episode played for 24 to 25 minutes. The Episode 1 of Season 1 aired on October of 2020 and the season finale dropped in on March 27, 2021.
How many episodes will Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 be released? Hopefully, it will follow Season 1 with 24 episodes of 25 minutes duration each.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Trailer
In the absence of any information about Jujutsu Kaisen renewal, it is too early to ask for a trailer for Season 2. MAPPA is likely to make an announcement with a short teaser about Season 2. In the meantime, check out the official Jujutsu Kaisen Movie 0 teaser here!
Jujutsu Kaisen Movie 0 deals with a different character, one that has not appeared in the anime series yet. Yuta Okkotsu is the protagonist in Movie 0, which is essentially a prequel to the main anime series.

If the series goes ahead with adapting from Volume 8 onwards, The Jujutsu sorcerers are going to make a comeback, perhaps faced with greater threats.
