After nearly two years, there is now renewed hope that the popular anime series ‘Violet Evergarden’ could return with season 2.
When it comes to anime, fans of the genre are used to the rollercoaster ride of release dates, scheduling delays and false rumours.
However, when there is a prolonged hiatus between seasons, it does get to the point where hope and expectation turn into doubt and uncertainty.
It has been over two years since Violet Evergarden season 1 concluded, but there is now renewed hope that the series could be making a comeback.
Violet Evergarden season 2: Renewal status
At the time of writing, the second season of Violet Evergarden has not been officially confirmed.
The studio behind the graphic novels of Violet Evergarden did announce that they are working on a ‘new project’, but there has been no confirmation that this will be a new season.
Renewals for anime series usually depend on two factors; popularity and source material. In the case of Violet Evergarden, season 1 immensely popular with fans and there is plenty of source material from the manga still to adapt.
Overall, we think that it is only a matter of time before the second season gets greenlit. However, it may be a few more months before we get any type of formal announcement from the studio.
Violet Evergarden season 2: Release date
- At the time of writing, Violet Evergarden is yet to be officially renewed, but we would expect season 2 to premiere in late-2021.
There were hopes that when the series premiered on Netflix earlier this year, it would be followed by news that a second season would release by the end of 2020. Whilst that does not appear to be the case, we are getting an original and canon Violet Evergarden movie this week (see below).
The potential release window for a second season all depends on when the production team get the green light to start working (if they haven’t already). Fans shouldn’t expect Violet Evergarden season 2 to premiere anytime soon, but a fall-2021 return appears to be the most realistic release window.
Hopefully, we will get some more information about the future of Violet Evergarden in the coming months.
Violet Evergarden 2020 movie…
The Violet Evergarden movie releases today, September 18th, with many fans expecting the film to reveal some more information about a possible second season.
In truth, the next few weeks will be incredibly important for the Violet Evergarden series. If the movie is a success, this could kickstart production for a second season.
Similarly, the best time to announce that an anime will be making a return with season 2 is just after a movie premieres, i.e. strike whilst the iron is hot and fans are talking about the series.
