The shonen manga series certainly lived up to the hype since the release of its first episode earlier this year in April. But with the season finally coming to an end, the question remains on whether the Tokyo Revengers universe will return with a brand new season or not.
Season 1 of Tokyo Revengers premiered on April 11, 2021, and ran for twenty-four episodes before finally concluding last Saturday. Liden Films Studios was behind the animation of the series. Yasuyuki Mutou (Afro Samurai, Deadman Wonderland) was in charge of the writing staff along with Kouichi Hatsumi (Blue Exorcist, Dororo, Deadman Wonderland) in charge of directing.
About Tokyo Revengers
Tokyo Revengers is based on the Japanese manga series by Ken Wakui. It follows the journey of 26-year-old Takemichi Hanagaki and what follows after he finds out that his former girlfriend Hina and her brother Naoto were murdered by the Tokyo Manji gang.
The viewers travel in time with Takemichi as he attempts to change the Toman gang and, hopefully, alter the future in order to save Hina.
Will there be a Season 2 of Tokyo Revengers?
So far there has been no official announcement from Liden Films Studios about the renewal of the anime series. Tokyo Revengers fans can however rest assured as it is highly likely that the action-packed supernatural anime will be getting a second season.
To begin with, earlier this year, Warner Bros announced the release of Tokyo Revengers live action. This decision came due to the high demand and ever-increasing popularity of the Tokyo Revengers franchise. Considering the huge success of the first season, Tokyo Revengers season 2 may be out sooner than you think.
Also, Season 1 adapted only about eight volumes out of the 23 volumes released to date. So the studio definitely has enough material to return with another season of Tokyo Revengers!
Tokyo Revengers Season 2 Expected Release Date
Unfortunately, Liden Film Studios have not made any official announcement for the targeted release date of Tokyo Revengers season 2. So we cannot be sure when the anime will return with a new season.
The anime adaption of Tokyo Revengers was announced in June 2020 and premiered in April 2021. We can estimate a similar production timeline for Tokyo Revengers season 2. In this regard, we can expect season 2 to premiere sometime in late 2022.
