Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Kicks Off July 6

There's been a big change in how the most popular anime series are made over the past few years. It used to be that big series such as One Piece, Naruto and Bleach would run year-round, racking up hundreds of episodes (One Piece has sailed past the 1000 mark). More recent series have adopted more traditional season length, and have seen a noticeable improvement in production values.

The downside to this approach is that fans have to wait longer for new episodes. Fans of  Jujutsu Kaisen have been waiting since March of 2021, but the second season is finally (nearly) here.

Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will take fans back to where it all began with Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto's formative school years. The season kicks off on July 6, streaming only on Crunchyroll. The series will be streaming subtitled and dubbed in all available territories and new episodes will premiere weekly after their premiere in Japan. 

The series will run for two consecutive 'cours' ( the term used to describe the traditional length of an anime season, typically 13 weeks). The first part of the story will tell the tale of Gojo and Geto's past in the Hidden Inventory / Premature Death arc.

The second season is produced by Mappa (Attack On Titan: Final Season, Chainsaw Man) and directed by Shota Goshozono. The screenplay and series composition are by Hiroshi Seko (Vinland Saga, Mob Psycho 100).

Character designs are by Sayaka Koiso and Tadashi Hiramatsu; art direction is by by Junichi Higashi; cinematography is by Teppei Ito; editing by Keisuke Yanagi; and music is composed by Yoshimasa Terui. The opening and ending theme music for the Hidden Inventory / Premature Death arc are performed by Tatsuya Kitani and Soushi Sakiyama, respectively.

“Fans have been eagerly waiting for the return of this incredible series, and we’re thrilled that Crunchyroll will be the exclusive home to season two of Jujutsu Kaisen,”said Asa Suehira, Crunchyroll’s Chief Content Officer.
