Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Teased As We Wait for 0 Official Release Date

Jujutsu Kaisen's broadcasting channel MBS teased a season 2

January 19, 2022

On January 19, the president of the Japanese TV channel that aired Jujutsu Kaisen teased that the anime adaptation has a season 2 in production. We translated everything below.

Every anime fan into the Shonen series of the moment knows about Jujutsu Kaisen. And it’ll be more surprising if the series didn’t get a second season soon. The first anime adaptation by studio Mappa, aired in 2020-2021, propelled the original manga by Gege Akutami off the charts.

Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 teased by Japanese TV channel MBS’ president

In a press conference held on January 19, 2022, the president of Mainichi Broadcasting System (MBS), Yoichi Muchiaki, mentioned regarding Jujutsu Kaisen: “We can’t announce a concrete plan yet so I ask you to be patient. But I believe your expectations will be met”. (Thanks, Mantanweb)

MBS time slot Super Animeism aired Jujutsu Kaisen from October 2020 to March 2021.

Is Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 confirmed?

Right now, a season 2 is all but officially confirmed. Japan just got the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie adaptation. And while it had a post-credits scene, it did not announce a second season yet. But everything still points towards a sequel.

The whole reason the movie adaptation exists is to prepare anime-only fans for future arcs. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and its protagonist Yuta Okkotsu are crucial to understanding upcoming developments.

Additionally, you know that for better or worse Mappa has a frenetic release pace. So assuming it’s still the studio working on a possible Jujutsu season 2, we’ll probably get an announcement very soon.

With how the anime industry works, or rather survives, nowadays, it’s impossible for a mainstream worldwide popular shonen series like Jujutsu Kaisen to stop in its tracks.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie release date AMC leak explained

On January 15, the site AMC Theatres briefly listed the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie for a March 18, 2022, release date in the US. Hence the claims it was leaked. Don’t bet on that date yet as there was no official announcement, so it could definitely end up wrong.

The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie launched on December 24, 2021, in Japan. As of January 16, 2022, its box office revenue exceeded 8.57 billion Yen.

Megumi Ogata also shared her thoughts on Yuta Okkotsu and the Jujutsu Kaisen series in an interview we translated. Are you looking forward to Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and a season 2? Tell us in the comments!
