The release date for Beastars season 2 has now confirmed after the Netflix anime had suffered from severe production delays.
When it comes to anime, Netflix is producing some truly excellent original series and bringing the genre to a whole new global audience.
One of the platforms biggest shows is Beastars, the anime filled with anthropomorphic animals based on the manga of the same name.
Millions of fans around the world love the Beastars series and season 2 was confirmed in the first season’s finale episode, but when will it release on Netflix?
Beastars season 2: Release date
- Beastars season 2 is set to release in Japan in January 2021, with the anime likely returning to Netflix in April 2021.
The premiere date was initially scheduled to be August 2020 but unfortunately, season 2 had to be delayed because of complications associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
The author of Beastars then recently revealed that season 2 is in production and will premiere sometime in 2021, although but a more specific premiere remained a mysery.
Now, the latest Beatstars manga chapter has revealed that season 2 of the anime adaptation will premiere in January 2021 – fantastic news for fans of the series!
However, we should note that this release date is for the Fuji TV network in Japan. As Netflix will most likely release the second season a few months after the Japanese premiere, expect a March or April 2021
Beastars season 2 plot…
- As the anime is a direct adaptation of the original manga, we do actually know exactly where the storyline will go in season 2.
However, we don’t want to spoil anything for fans who haven’t read the manga, so just know that the storyline is set to follow chapters 48 – 98. Although based on what happened in season 1, there could be several important directions we predict the story to go.
The most obvious one is finding out who Tem’s murderer is. We see the killer in a post-credit scene leaving a bathroom and being told by Legoshi that everyone is waiting for them – suggesting they are part of the drama club.
We also never technically see Louis really get eaten by the lions, if he somehow managed to survive (or if someone saves him at the last minute) it could cause serious tension in the group.
Season 1 of Beastars is available to stream right now on Netflix.
