Are you waiting for news on Days Season 2? Well, we know the feeling.
When you watch an anime series or any TV show, you get engrossed in the story and want more of it. The feeling gets more intensified when the first season does not end properly and the story ends at a cliffhanger. In such a case, the frustration grows stronger as one awaits the next season.
DAYS is a sports anime based on a shonen manga written by Yasuda Tsuyoshi. The anime adaptation is produced by MAPPA Studio and it broadcasted in 2016.
If you have read the manga but are still waiting for Days season 2, read on as we will discuss with you everything we know so far about the potential of season 2 of the anime.
Is Days Season 2 Canceled Or Renewed?
Days Season 1 came to an end in 2016 and there was a huge demand for Season 2 as the first season did not complete the story.
At that time the creators claimed that they plan to complete the manga story in the anime, and even Crunchyroll announced in 2016 that the show will be renewed for another season.

However, Crunchyroll misreported and spoke too soon as the studio confirmed that the show will not be coming back.
Yes, Days Season 2 is not confirmed and we will not be getting a second season. Studio MAPPA later explained that fans will not be getting a season 2 like the first season, but it will be released in three anime DVDs.
The three episodes were released from March to July 2018 and thus concluded the story. Therefore, don’t hold your breath for season 2 as we might not be getting any in the future.
Is the Days anime finished?
After the release of the three episodes as DVDs, the official status of the show’s season 2 says it has been canceled. As a result, there is zero likelihood of the show returning for another season.
The first season of the show aired more than 6 years ago, and there is still a lot of material to adapt from the manga series, but the anime will not be getting a second season.
The only way we can get a season 2 of Days is if another production company picks up the story. However, the manga has already ended, and anime is created to promote the original manga.
If we talk about a reboot series of an anime movie, changes are very strong, considering the popularity of the anime series. The anime is rated 7.3 on IMDB and it received solid reviews from the viewers, but it’s not enough information to make any predictions regarding the future of the show.
Days Season 2 Trailer
Unfortunately, there is no announcement of the Days Season 2 trailer as the series ended in 2016, with additional three DVD episodes in 2017. As the story is complete, the chances of a second season are close to none.
We might get a reboot series or a movie, so let’s keep our fingers crossed.
What is Days Anime About?
Days is a Japanese sports anime based on a manga series by Tsuyoshi Yasuda. The anime series was adapted by MAPPA and it broadcasted from July to December 2016.
