Death Note started its life as a popular manga series illustrated by Takeshi Obata and written by Tsugumi Ohba. The 37-episode anime television series adaptation was first released in Japan in October 2006 and ran until June 2007. The anime scored an astounding 8.63/10 out of 2,191,877 votes on MyAnimeList. Still, the anime hasn’t received a sequel since 2007, so what’s the possibility of Death Note: Season 2?

Unfortunately, neither Studio Madhouse nor Ohba have confirmed Death Note: Season 2. The 37 episodes of the anime adapted all 12 volumes of the manga, and as such, Light’s journey has ended. But in 2020, a one-shot titled Death Note: The a-Kira Story was released, so there’s a possibility we might get a continuation in the future.

Death Note Season 2 Announcement

We have been waiting for the sequel for so long. There are plenty of speculations that Death Note 2 is already on the way. Unfortunately, there is still no official confirmation that a sequel to the original anime is happening.

The manga on which the series is based contains 108 chapters collected in 12 tankōbon volumes. The anime adaptation has pretty much exhausted the source material already.

In February 2020, a standalone ‘Death Note: Special One Shot’ written by Ohba and drawn by Obata was published. The standalone was set ten years after the events of Kira, featuring a whole new story to the franchise. It could be viable source material for an anime sequel. 

When Will Death Note Season 2 be Released?

A second season for the Death Note anime is not confirmed yet, so there is still no release date available. We will continue to wait for further news and update this article along the way. 

What Is Death Note: Season 2 About? (Spoiler Alert)

The anime’s first main character, Light Yagami, is now deceased. As a result, Minoru Tanaka, the new owner of the Death Note, will be introduced if the new one-shot is adapted.

In an effort to make Minoru as fascinating as Light, Ryuk will be shown giving him the Death Note. But instead of carrying on Light’s legacy, he initiates a scheme to sell the object at auction.

Is there any Trailer Yet?

There is no official announcement yet received from the makers.

Where to Watch Online?

The English dub is available on Amazon Prime. You can also stream the anime on Netflix with original Japanese audio and English subtitles.
