Is Demon Lord, Retry! anime returning for another season? Here’s everything we know about Demon Lord Retry Season 2 in 2022.
It’s been four years since the first season of the Demon Lord, Retry! hit our screens in 2019. Since then fans have eagerly been waiting for another season of Mao-sama Ritorai!
Demon Lord Retry is based on the light novel series of the same name by the author Kurone Kanazaki. It’s an action-fantasy isekai anime TV series adapted by Ekachi Epilka. The series ran from July 4, 2019, to September 19, 2019.
Even though it was a short run for the anime, fans are now demanding more episodes of the show.
Demon Lord, Retry! Season 2: Canceled or Renewed
As of today, there is no news regarding season 2 of Demon Lord Retry from the production company. The Ekachi Epilka studio has not released any official statement regarding the renewal of the TV series for another season.
As there is no news regarding a new season by the production house, that does not mean that it has been canceled. The first season ended in 2019, and we all know that 2020 put an end to the production of anime because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Therefore, it is very early to expect Demon Lord Retry Season 2.
The renewal of the anime series for season 2 depends upon various parameters such as source material and revenue generated.
Fortunately, the anime is quite popular and has generated good revenue, so the chances for a new season are very high. There is plenty of source material as well as the light novel series is continuing.
Fans of the anime series are still active on social media platforms and are hoping to get the next season soon.

Demon Lord Retry Season 2 Release Date
Although there is a lot of speculation revolving around season 2 of Demon Lord Retry, there is no official release date.
Neither Ekachi Epika nor any member of the anime has confirmed the renewal, so we don’t if the show is returning for another season.
One of the main reasons why fans believe the show will return for sure is that the first season ended with ‘To be continued’ which indicates that the story is not done yet, and the show makers ended the show with the possibility of a second season.
Till today there is no official announcement or anything from the production company to give us a hint of their plans regarding Demon Lord Retry.
Demon Lord Retry Source Material
If we look at the source material, we can be certain the show will return in the future. The light novel series is still continuing with 7 volumes and the manga adaptation has five volumes.

The production company only used the first 2 volumes of the novel series for the show. It means that for season 2, there are still 5 volumes left. So, there is a lot of source material left for adaptation into the anime.
You can continue the story from season 1 of the anime by reading Demon Lord Retry Volume 3 in paperback.
Demon Lord Retry Reviews and Ratings

The anime is a favorite of most fans as it has made them laugh with every episode. According to some fans, the story wasn’t epic, and the characters were simple.
Today’s anime/manga is Maou-sama Retry! The manga is the superior version of this, with a second part being Maou-sama Retry! R that is still ongoing. It’s about a guy who was sucked into his own game becoming his own character in a fantasy world. Highly entertaining! Enjoy! 😄 pic.twitter.com/TLYTz7OSXw

What is Demon Lord Retry about
Akira Ono prepares to shut down the server of his game, the MMORPG Infinity Game when he suddenly finds himself in the body of his character, Demon Lord.
He wakes up in the body of Demon Lord aka Hakuto Kunai, in a world set within Infinity Game. In the game, Akiro encounters various issues as he is also a top target in the game.
He meets an injured girl, Aku, who is chased by a demon, as they both embark on the journey for survival.
Akira is bothered by the fact that he has not created any character like Aku or the demon and still doesn’t know why he was summoned.
