Kill la Kill Season 2 was the first TV anime from Studio Trigger, airing for 24 episodes from 2013-14. Directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi of Gurren Lagann fame, the magical girl action-comedy was not without its controversies but proved to be a wildly popular fan favorite, eventually airing on Adult Swim’s Toonami block in 2015.
Given Kill la Kill’s popularity, it’s reasonable that some fans want to spend more time with Ryuko, Satsuki, Mako, and the rest of Honnouji Academy. However, those folks might be better off playing the video game or rewatching the series on Crunchyroll, Funimation, Netflix, or Hulu, as the odds of a second season being made are low.

Kill la Kill Storyline
Kill la Kill follows high school girl Ryuko Matoi as she seeks to find her father’s murderers. Wielding half of her father’s scissor blade, her quest brings her to Honnouji Academy, a school where the student council rules with an iron fist and the strict class structure is enforced with special Goku Uniforms.
Ryuko ends up with an incredibly powerful uniform of her own, though not by choice: a sentient sailor outfit named Senketsu is thirsty for blood and forces itself upon her, granting Ryuko extraordinary powers in exchange for it. Ryuko uses these powers to fight the student council president Satsuki Kiryuin, who has her own uniform named Junketsu.
Kill la Kill Season 2 Possible Release Date (Coming Soon)
Over seven years since its conclusion, the second season seems both unlikely and unnecessary. Season one ended on a conclusive note, with the villains defeated and the Life Fibers that powered the series of combat scenes all destroyed.
For those wanting additional Kill la Kill content beyond the 24-episode TV series, there is an OVA epilogue only available on the show’s Blu-ray and DVD releases. Additionally, the world of Kill La Kill was visited in Episode 7 of Space Patrol Luluco.
Given that all Studio Trigger anime are said to share a universe, it’s more likely that characters from Kill la Kill could show up in a completely different anime than there is a Season 2. At the Anime Expo that was held in July 2018, Trigger along with Arc System Works announced the launch of Kill La Kill the Game: IF.
They created a visually stunning Kill la Kill game that acts as an Action, Anime, and Single Player Online PvP game. It was released on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC in July 2019. The storyline is somewhat close to the anime series. The game is available on Steam for a paid download.

Kill La Kill Season 2 Expected Plot (Spoilers)
Season 1 along with the OVA ended the series leaving the fans with bittersweet emotions. This means the story has officially ended. The manga merely imitated the anime episodes. So the manga was just a beautiful retelling of the animated story in beautiful black lines and crisp character designs.

Rumour is that Trigger did want to create another season, however, there weren’t too many takers for it. So, here’s another sign that we have to wait for, and hope that it’s soon.
