According to reliable leaks, an announcement of Cour 2 of Spy x Family is coming your way on 28th August along with a key visual.
Apart from a promotional poster, we are not sure whether the announcement will be marked by a trailer or simply a teaser.
During the event, it is speculated that the Spy x Family Season 1 Part 2 release date may also get announced. This is assumed on the basis of an earlier announcement of Spy x Family Season 1 Part 2 anime to be part of the autumn anime calendar that starts in October.
The announcement of the premiere date may happen, but it would be logical for Wit Studio and Clover Works to reserve it for maybe a couple of weeks later, with the debut to play.
The long-awaited spring 2022 spy drama finally made its official anime debut with an absolute banger of a premiere. The plot revolves around an elite spy’s undercover mission to prevent chaos from erupting between two superpowers while maintaining the pristine facade of a fake family.

How many episodes will Spy x Family Part 2 have?
There is no official confirmation on how many episodes will Spy x Family Part 2 have. However, at the time of Part 1 adaptation, WIT Studio and CloverWorks had decided to split into two separate cours. Spy x Family Season 1 Part 1 consisted of 12 episodes and the entire series was designed for 25 episodes. In other words, Spy x Family Season 1 Part 2 will come back with 13 episodes. The second cour will consist of episodes running from 13 to 25.
Fans will again be in the company of Loid Forger and adopted daughter Anya for 11-12 weeks starting October.
The second cour – Spy x Family Part 2 will cover the Doggy Crisis Arc of the manga. It will start from Chapter 18 and end in Chapter 23. Spy x Family Part 1 anime covered the first five arcs of the manga with each arc covering either 2/3 episodes each. On similar lines, fans can expect Spy x Family part 2 to adapt the Midterm Exam Arc and the Campbelldon Tennis Arc.
Honestly, seeing the pace at which Spy x Family adaptation is being worked on, it will not be a big surprise if Spy x Family Season 2 gets confirmed at the finale of part 2. Hoping that Endo-sensei weaves around his story and slowly the Forgers will have no choice but to return to our lives.
This time, however, Spy x Family Part 2 will face stiff competition unlike the Part 1 release in the spring. Instead, it will have to play against rivals of the caliber of Chainsaw Man, return of Bleach, or Mob Psycho 100. We have to wait and see how it retains being ‘the great debutante’. Will the Forger family be able to reconfirm themselves?
Regardless of whether Spy x Family part 2 turns out to be as great as Spy x Family part 1, the truth is that Fall anime lineup 2022 will be the most gripping in years to come.
