The first season of The Misfit of Demon King Academy has just concluded, but what are the chances that the anime will return with season 2?
Between shows like Tower of God, Rent-A-Girlfriend, Food Wars and Sword Art Online, it’s been a fantastic and memorable summer for anime.
One hit new series was The Misfit of Demon King Academy, which may have had the typical plot of magic and demons, but wowed fans with its slick animations and storytelling.
The first season of The Misfit of Demon King Academy has just concluded, but fans are already wondering if and when the series will return for season 2.
Will there be a season 2 of The Misfit of Demon King Academy?
- At the time of writing, The Misfit of Demon King Academy has not been officially renewed for season 2, but the anime is highly likely to return.
Anime renewals usually depend on two factors: popularity and source material. Unfortunately, we don’t have the official viewership statistics for season 1, but the anime appears to be extremely popular amongst fans – scoring an impressive 4.6/5 on Crunchyroll, 7.49/10 on MyAnimeList and 7.5/10 on IMDB.
There is also enough source material to produce a sequel season, with the first instalment only covering the first three volumes of the original web novel series – volume 8 is currently scheduled to release on October 10th.
Interestingly, there was recently a comment made from a well-known leaker within the anime community called ‘Ranobe Sugoi’ who tweeted after the season 1 finale that “The Misfit of Demon King Academy is too good to have only 01 Season.” Whilst we should always take information like this with a pinch of salt, Sugoi would then reply to a comment on the tweet with: “I haven’t confirmed anything. NOT YET.”
We will bring you updates on the future of The Misfit of Demon King Academy as soon as any new information is officially revealed.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy season 2 release date…
With The Misfit of Demon King Academy yet to be renewed for a second season, an official release date has not been confirmed, but we can make some predictions based on season 1.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy anime adaptation was announced in October 2019, with the season 1 premiere scheduled to be in April 2020. Unfortunately, this release date had to be pushed back until July 2020 because of complications associated with the coronavirus pandemic.
Assuming that the anime will be officially renewed within the next few weeks and that season 2 will have a similar production schedule of roughly nine months, a summer 2021 premiere is the most realistic window.
Again, we will update this article when more information is revealed, so keep checking back in for the latest news.
