Everything is in place for Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 to be a huge success. It comes on the heels of the hugely successful Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film, and a general surge in anime (fueled by shows like Attack on Titan and Demon Slayer) has left fans yearning for more. Mind you, just if they’re not hungry for fingers.
Yes, after the movie descended into prequel territory, we’re back to following Yuji and the gang. We’ll go through the official Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 release date, a look ahead at what it might adapt from the source material, and everything else for the upcoming season that’s still up in the air.
Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen Will Premiere in 2023
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will premiere in 2023, according to a press conference in Japan (via Crunchyroll). It could debut during one of anime’s three major release windows: Winter 2023 (beginning in January 2023), Spring 2023 (beginning in April 2023), or Fall 2023 (beginning in September 2023). (starting October 2023).
If we had to bet, we’d say a release in Fall 2023 is the most likely scenario. Not only did the first season premiere in the Fall timeframe, but MAPPA Animation also worked on Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Attack on Titan, and the upcoming Chainsaw Man.
That’s a hard schedule for any studio, but from October 2023 onwards, they’ll have plenty of time to deliver a second season that lives up to their ridiculously high expectations.
Season 2 Trailer for Jujutsu Kaisen
Now, as for when we could see a trailer, given that the next season was announced in February 2022, late 2022 or early 2023 would be the best-case scenario, but we’ll have to wait for more information to confirm an official date.
Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen’s Story
The Death Painting Arc, which spanned chapters 55 to 64 in the manga, brought Jujutsu Kaisen’s first season to a close. If the anime keeps adapting the manga in order of publication, Gojo’s Past Arc, which spans chapters 65 to 79 in the manga, will be next.
That’s about Gojo’s past, notably a mission in which Gojo and Geto were tasked with escorting a Star Plasma Vessel to Tengen.
If that’s the case, the second season might be a jumble of flashbacks to Gojo’s history, as well as a buildup to the Shibuya Incident, the show’s next big storyline (chapters 79-136).
Don’t worry, we’re not going into the spoiler zone here, but the Shibuya Incident Arc centers around a plan sponsored by Gojo and his new cursed alliance to seal Goto away.
That appears to be the most likely option, given it has more than enough content for the second season of 25 episodes. It’s also possible that’s the case, based on how the first season ended.
Yuji and Nobara rejoin Megumi after defeating the Cursed Wombs Eso and Kechizu. Sukuna, on the other hand, consumes Yuji’s finger and pushes him one step closer to regaining his strength, thanks to a mouth in Yuji’s hand, because of anime.
The creeping evil, as well as that of the third Cursed Womb triplet, Choso, who has allied himself with series antagonists Geto and Mahito, will be the focus of the upcoming season.
There’s also the question of a mole at Jujutsu High, with teacher Utahime on the lookout for the shady magician. This will also play a significant role in the upcoming season.
Series Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Star Cast
Season 2 of “Jujutsu Kaisen” will most likely include a cast that is comparable to Season 1. Junya Enoki plays Yuji, who accepts a mission to find every part of Sukuna, voiced by Junichi Suwabe, with the idea that he must sacrifice himself in order to vanquish Sukuna.
Yuma Uchida, a stoic magician who should cooperate with Yuji, is played by Megumi, and Asami Seto, a powerful young girl with a fighter’s strength, is played by Nobara. Yuichi Nakamura, the most experienced alchemist at Jujutsu High, where the three friends train, is played by Satoru.
Manga and anime are inextricably linked, and it can take years for fan-favorite manga to be converted into a television show or film. That was not the case with “Jujutsu Kaisen.” “Jujutsu Kaisen,” first released in 2018, is a dark fantasy narrative set in a world where “Curse,” or bad spirits, are rampant and people must train as sorcerers to resist them. The series follows Yuji Itadori, a teenage boy who saves his friends by swallowing a Cursed artifact and becomes the host of a Curse known as Sukuna.
Given the events shown in the manga, it appears reasonable to infer that Season 2 of “Jujutsu Kaisen” will cover the “Shibuya Incident” story arc. This film depicts a group of sorcerers led by Yuji as they fight against a well-coordinated campaign of Curses and other evil forces to eliminate those who resist them.
Is Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 coming in 2022?
We now have official confirmation that Jujutsu Kaisen will return for a second season in 2023, as of February 2022. We don’t have any additional information at this time.
When will Jujutsu Kaisen return to the winter slate?
According to this update, Jujutsu Kaisen will most likely not launch on the Winter Slate in 2023, thus fans should plan on waiting until either April or July 2023 to see the series again.
