Is Black Bullet returning for season 2? Here’s everything you need to know about Black Bullet Season 2 in 2023.
It’s been more than 9 years since the Black Bullet anime was first released. Since then, the post-apocalyptic anime series has captured the hearts of thousands of fans worldwide.
Black Bullet, also known as Burakku Buretto in Japanese, is based on the light novel series of the same name written by Shiden Kanzaki in 2011. The anime features a dystopian world with a deadly virus.
The anime series Black Bullet only had one season so far by Studio Kinema Citrus and Orange. After the 13-episode season in 2014, there has been no word for the return of Black Bullet Season 2.
Black Bullet Season 2: Canceled or Renewed?
As of 2023, there is no official word regarding season 2 of Black Bullet. The Studio Kinema Citrus and Orange have not confirmed the next season.
Season 1 of Black Bullet ended with 13 episodes in 2014, so there has been a lot of time in which the sequel season could have been produced if the studio wanted to.
Unfortunately, the Black Bullet anime was not successful, as a result, the Studio did not plan for a second season.
The biggest problem is that the author of the light novel series has abandoned Black Bullet, and since then no new volume has been published.
Therefore, we don’t see the show returning for another season any time soon. For now, it has not been canceled or renewed by the studio, so we can only be hopeful right now.
Fans of Black Bullet have been active on social media and waiting for the next season eagerly.

Apart from this anime, there is plenty of other series like World End, All Out, and Full Dive that are still awaiting a renewal.
Black Bullet Season 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, there is no release date for Black Bullet Season 2 as the show has not been renewed or canceled yet.
Considering a lot of factors like profitability and source material, we can be confident that the show will not be returning for season 2. There are plenty of factors working against it.
The latest volume of the light novel was released back in 2014, and since then there has been no new volume published. This means there is no source material, hence a 0% chance of the sequel season happening.

Black Bullet Source Material for Season 2
The Black Bullet light novel series began publishing in 2011, and as of right now, 7 volumes have been published. As the series is abandoned, there isn’t much material left that can be used for a new second season.
The first season adapted four volumes, leaving very material to work with for another season. It is said that the pressure of writing the light novels for them to be adapted into the anime took a toll on the author. Because of that, he quit writing the novels, while some claim he did so because of his health issues.

What is Black Bullet about
Black Bullet is an action, adventure, sci-fi drama based on a post-apocalyptic world. In the year 2021, mankind is suffering from a great epidemic called Gastrea, which is a parasitic virus that turns humans into monsters.
After the epidemic, only a few humans survived and are now living within the Monolith walls made from Varanium, the only metal that can subdue Gastrea.
