Is Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 confirmed?

Season 2 was not confirmed until last month when many fans speculated that the film may be the end of the anime, but a lot of the fans were hopeful since the manga still has a wide storyline to cover. And, owing to the wide applause received by the first season, a second is bound to happen.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 will return in 2023
As confirmed by Crunchyroll, Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will return in 2023. As of right now, there is no release date for season 2, but there are two possible release windows:
- Spring 2023 (April onwards)
- Fall 2023 (October onwards)
Considering all the projects MAPPA is busy with, the Fall release is most likely. MAPPA has recently wrapped up work on Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Attack on Titan, and Chainsaw Man.
This is a busy schedule for the production house, so the second season will probably come out in October 2023 or later.
The official Twitter page of the Jujutsu Kaisen has shared the first teaser visual of the upcoming season.
What characters will be in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2?
Since the anime has a lot of material to cover from the manga, it is likely that season 2 will have most of the characters from season 1. Namely, Yuji is the protagonist in search of Sakuna’s remaining pieces.
Megumi, the sorcerer in Yuji’s team, Satoru, and Nobara among the characters whose story arc still remains unfinished will definitely spill over to season 2.
There is no doubt, that a lot of new characters and consequently, new voice actors will be joining the cast.
Which Volumes Will Season 2 Cover?
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will most likely cover the storyline from the manga’s 8th volume, as the previous story has already been covered in season 1 and the prequel.
Up till now, the writer has published up to 18 volumes, so it’s safe to say the viewers will be kept entertained for a long period of time.
To read the story from season 1, you can read Jujutsu Kaisen manga Volume 8 in English.
The first season of the anime concluded with the Death Painting Arc which covered chapters 55-64. So, it is confirmed that the second season will start from Gojo’s Past Arc or chapters 65-79.
As the name suggests, it will focus on Gojo’s past and his mission of escorting a Star Plasman Vessel with Geto to Tengen.
Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen will also include the Shibuya Incident Arc that revolves around Gojo’s plan to steal away Goto. It’s safe to say that the next season will have anywhere between 24-26 episodes. So, get ready to have tons of content to stream next Fall.
Where To Stream Jujutsu Kaisen
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 is available to stream on Crunchyroll, so we are sure the upcoming season will also premiere on the anime streaming platform. Season 1 of the anime series is also streaming on Netflix.
Although the release date for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 has not been announced yet, we are sure the series will be available on Japanese Netflix.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Trailer
Season 2’s trailer has not been released officially as of yet.
Currently, the majority of the attention is on the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie. Numerous fan-made trailers are being uploaded but no word from the original team yet.
Here’s the trailer for the movie for you to enjoy in the meantime:
Do you need to watch Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie before season 2?
I would recommend watching the movie before season 2, but even if you don’t it will not disturb the storyline. That is because Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is a prequel to the series.
It centers on Yuta Okkotsu. He is one of the most popular characters in the series, so it’s best to watch the movie to understand his character more.
No spoilers, but there is a post-credit scene that sets up the future events in the anime series so we can only wait how it will turn up in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2.
The movie has been a blockbuster, as it made over $85.1 million since its opening in December. Overall, the movie is an absolute blast if you ask me, and I would recommend all fans to watch it while we wait for season 2.
