Like Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Jujutsu Kaisen is a supernatural shonen anime that has been very popular since the first season premiered in October 2020. The series is about Yuji Itadori, an unusually strong high school student who becomes the host of Ryomen Sukuna, a powerful curse spirit who wants to regain his physical form and take over the human world.
Yuji is enrolled as an apprentice “jujutsu sorcerer” at Tokyo Jujutsu High, where he is taught how to use jujutsu.
After the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0 came out, which took place before the first season and told the story of an apprentice jujutsu sorcerer named Yuta Okkotsu, a second season of Jujutsu Kaisen was announced and is currently being made. Here’s what we know about when the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen will come out.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Plot
We can’t say for sure, but if Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 stays true to the manga, we can guess that Satoru Gojo will be at the center of it. Gojo’s Past is the name of the next part of the manga, which is full of flashbacks to Satoru’s past.
This fits with what we learned about Satoru’s past friendship with the anime character Suguru Geto in Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Suguru will still be a big part of the new season because he is the main bad guy. Choso, the third curse to come from Cursed Womb: Death Painting, has joined Suguru’s side.
While this is going on, Sukuna is still slowly getting back to full strength. Most likely, that won’t happen this season, but it seems like the perfect thing to set up for season 3, right?
Stars in Season 2 of “Jujutsu Kaisen”
Season 2 of “Jujutsu Kaisen” will probably have the same cast as Season 1. This includes Junya Enoki as Yuji, who agrees to find every piece of Sukuna, who is voiced by Junichi Suwabe, even though he knows he will have to die in order to beat Sukuna.
Megumi plays Yuma Uchida, a calm magician who should work with Yuji. Nobara plays Asami Seto, a strong young girl who is a fighter’s might. Satoru plays Yuichi Nakamura, who is the most experienced alchemist where the three friends train, Jujutsu High.
As the world of “Jujutsu Kaisen” grows with the new movie and future episodes, the show will probably have more characters, whether they are new Curses, new magicians, or just regular people Yuji meets. This means that some really great voice entertainers can now join the show’s cast.
Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen Release Date
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will come out in 2023, as was announced at an event in Japan in February.
The second season of Jujutsu Kaisen will start in July 2023, according to a new teaser trailer shown at the recent Jump Festa event. A more specific date was not given.
When the first news about the renewal came out, it said that the hit anime series would start airing in “Winter 2023,” which is the time period from January to March. But the Weekly Shonen Jump News Twitter page has since shared an update to this information, confirming that only a 2023 window was set and that “Winter” was mistranslated from the original post.
In September, it was also confirmed that season 2 will be split into two courses, or three-month-long seasons. This means that season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen will probably have another 24 episodes and air from July to December 2023.
The first season was announced at the end of November 2019 and started in October 2020. The prequel movie was announced in March 2021 and came out in Japanese theatres in December.
Will Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen be Available on Crunchyroll or Netflix?
At this time, it is unclear which streaming service will acquire the rights to air Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen in North America.
Nonetheless, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is expected to be simulcast on Crunchyroll, or at least appear on the site at some point in the future, given that the series has already been simulcast on the service and considering the merger of Crunchyroll and Funimation this past year.
