An official reveal trailer for Dr Stone season 2 was released a few weeks back, but fans are wondering when the release date will be.
Season 1 of Dr Stone was nothing short of a masterpiece and as soon as the anime premiered in August 2019, it became a hit with fans and critics alike.
The story of a young boy rebuilding civilisation from the ground up was loved by many viewers for its originality and the series only got better as season 1 went on.
After the finale aired in February 2020, most of us weren’t expecting another instalment for at least another year – especially with coronavirus delaying production on many anime.
However, there was some big news a few weeks ago about the future of Dr Stone and we even got a reveal trailer for season 2!
Dr Stone season 2 release date…
- Season 2 of the Dr Stone anime series will premiere in January 2021, but a more specific release date is yet to be announced.
Whilst many of us predicted a 2021 release for season 2, not many of us would have thought it could premiere so early in the year, but we won’t complain.
Dr Stone’s season 1 released in the optimal Saturday morning slot on Crunchyroll. Whilst right now we don’t know the exact premiere date for season 2, we can guess that it will be on a Saturday, meaning either the 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd or 30th.
As always, we will keep this page updated when new information on Dr Stone season 2 is officially confirmed.
Dr Stone season 2 plot…
- As the title suggests, this season will focus on the growing conflict between Senku’s Kingdom of Science and Tsukasa’s Empire.
However, fans can also expect a brand new set of technological advancements this season with the era of electricity now in full-flow…Personally, I’m hoping Kohaku gets to taser Tsukasa at some point.
We should also see the reintroduction of Taiju and Yuzuriha, who were noticably absent for the latter arc of season 1. We know that these two lovers are still loyal to Senku, but are being tailed by members of Tsukasa’s empire – potential hostage situation?
Slightly off from the main storyline for season 2, there could be some developing romantic relationships in the upcoming instalment of Dr Stone. Will Chrome and Ruri get together, or will she develop feelings for Senku? Speaking of the mad scientist, I can’t be the only one who thinks something could happen with Kohaku.
Either way, season should be filled with excitement, humour and most importantly, science!
Fan reaction to the trailer…
Understandably, the reveal trailer and subsequent announcement of a January release date have sent fans of the anime into meltdown.
Season 1 of the show was incredibly popular around the world and quickly developed into one of the most referenced anime of recent years. Hopefully season 2 lives up to the expectation we, as fans, are putting on Senku.
