No updates on season 2 of the anime…
At the time of writing, 10 months after the conclusion of season 1, there has not been any official confirmation that the anime will return for a second broadcast.
However, fans are completely aware that the anime is destined to return and that a public announcement is only a formality at this point.
Not only is Jujutsu Kaisen one of the most popular series in the world right now, but has plenty of source material left to adapt into another season.
According to reports online, season 1 adapted up until roughly volume 8 chapter 64 in the original manga. The good news is that, as of January 2022, 161 chapters across 18 volumes have been published.
Overall, fans should expect an announcement concerning season 2 to be made within the next six months, in order to take advantage of the excitement generated from Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
