What is The Duke of Death and His Maid About?
The Young Duke is cursed with the shadow of death and is exiled from his home as all that he touches, dies. Disowned by his mother, he moves to a manor with his butler Ron and his childhood friend Alice. Alice also lives with him as his maid and keeps him company to keep him from loneliness. She is relentless in her attempts to make the Duke blush and leave him flustered despite knowing that any touch from him would mean instant death.
The Duke becomes more aware of his feelings for Alice as time passes and resolves to break his curse of death. The curse does not let him come in contact with any of his loved ones including Alice. In an attempt to free himself from this isolation, the Duke set out to break the curse that was cast on him at a very young age and perhaps also learns the origin of the witch’s curse that changed his life forever.
What Will The The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 2 be About?
The first season of the anime ends with Alice’s gentle confession that she loves the Duke too. The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 2 will begin with somewhat of a fairy tale with the Little Red Riding Hood story. The overarching problem is the Duke’s quest to rid himself of the curse and his mother’s ultimatum which could lead to Walter becoming the head of the family.
The Duke has already announced his intentions of marrying Alice and removing his curse before becoming the head of the family. A series of challenges, adventures and magic sit in his path that will finally be seen in The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 2. The first season of the anime adapted exactly 5 volumes of the manga and stopped at chapter 68. The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 2 will begin again from chapter 69 in volume 6.
When Will The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 2 Release?
The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 2 has announced a 2023 release but has not yet specified an anime season that it will be released.

A teaser visual of The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 2 was also shared with the fans via tweet as well on the official website.
Even with a similarly paced adaptation, the manga will still have more chapters and storylines to be animated. Currently, there are 15 volumes of manga that have been released. Assuming that Season 2 will also adapt about 4-5 volumes, there would still be enough source material for The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 3 in the future.
