The first season of God of Highschool ended in September 2020 with a total of 13 episodes. Since then fans have been waiting for another season. Here’s everything we know about God of Highschool Season 2.
The God of Highschool is a popular anime based on the manhwa of the same name. The anime series is set in Seoul, Soth Korea where contestants fight in martial arts competitions by using the might of gods.
God of Highschool manhwa is created by Park Yongje and published by Webtoon. All the chapters of the manhwa have been collected and published as one volume as of April 2020.
The story got adapted into an anime TV series by MAPPA and has a mobile game as well.
Will there be God of Highschool Season 2? Canceled or Renewed
Unfortunately, God of Highschool Season 2 has not been confirmed by the production company. MAPPA or Crunchyroll have not made any official statements regarding the renewal of the show yet.
However, the good news is that there is no news regarding the cancellation of the show either, so there is a lot of chance we might get season 2. As season 1 of the show ended in 2020, it has not been too much time since the first season.
Most of the time, anime series take years before making a comeback. Considering the demand from fans, we might hear something regarding the anime this year.

Crunchyroll distributed the first season and has been invested in the renewal of the anime. Other streaming services like Netflix have also been interested in another season of God of Highschool.
There are a lot of factors to consider in regards to the renewal of the anime series, including the popularity of the show, source material, and profits.
One major hurdle is that Sunghoo Park, the director of God of Highschool has left MAPPA studios to start his own company, so there might be a long wait till we get another season.

There is plenty of other anime series that are still awaiting renewal like Hyouka, Maid Sama!, and Blue Spring Ride.
Till then, you can read The God of Highschool comic to continue the story from season 1 of the anime series.
What is God of Highschool Season 2 Release Date
As of today, there is no release date for God of Highschool season 2. There has been no official statement regarding the renewal of the show from MAPPA or Crunchyroll, so we don’t know when the show will return for another season.
Since the end of season 1 in 2020, there has been no news regarding season 2 of the show. Therefore, Season 2 has yet to be confirmed.
The show recently moved to Netflix, and as the streaming platform is invested in creating its anime, we might get another season pretty soon.
If you consider the popularity of the anime, there is a lot of potential for season 2 of God of Highschool, as fans of the Webtoon and anime are very active on social media platforms.
God of Highschool Source Material
Similarly, if we look at the source material, the webtoon has a total of 527 chapters. The first season of the anime covers over 100 chapters of the webtoon only.
However, the anime has shortened the storyline and altered it making it a bit confusing for fans if season 2 comes.

The manhwa on which the anime is based is still ongoing, so there is plenty of source material that can be adapted to season 2. Unfortunately, there has been no official word regarding the continuation of the anime, so we don’t know when season 2 will come out.
God of Highschool Reviews and Ratings
The God of Highschool has a popularity ranking of #4108, and an audience score of 6.95 on MyAnimeList. According to critics, MAPPA did a very bad job at the adaptation of the webtoon.
The first difference is in the art style, as the anime portrayed characters differently. The show was a popular name in the anime community and it blew up on its release in 2020.
On IMDB, The God of Highschool has a rating of 7.3/10 with 6.2 thousand reviews. The show was even nominated for Crunchyroll Anime Awards for the best animation, best fight scene, and the best score.
According to fans, the anime was enjoyable despite being a speedrun as the story is rushed. It feels like the anime started off from episode 70, and that is what happens when you adapt 100 chapters in a 13-episode anime.
Critics recommend anime-only viewers to first read the manhwa because it’s slow-paced, and explains everything that the anime is lacking. The anime does not have character backgrounds, as it hardly explains any backstory.
What is the Story of God of Highschool
At the beginning of time, humans, gods, and demons lived together on Earth. The gods allowed weak humans to borrow their powers called the “Borrowed Power system”. It was done to help them defend themselves against demons.
However, after the demons were defeated, gods split up humans, demons, and gods into three realms as:
- The Human Realm
- The Sage Realm (demon realm)
- The Heavenly Realm (home of powerful gods)
Since the divide humans have been able to borrow the powers of gods, but are not allowed to attack gods with it.
The main protagonist of the anime is a 17-year-old high school kid, Mori Jin, from Seoul. Mori is a martial artist, who is invited to join a tournament called The God of Highschool, run by a shady corporation. However, at the tournament, he meets participants who fight using Borrowed Power – mystical energy that grants them supernatural abilities
