The first season of Dorohedoro was completely bonkers but extremely addicting, so when will the hit anime series return for season 2 on Netflix?
From Akame Ga Kill and The Seven Deadly Sins to Castelvania and Beastars, there are some brilliant anime series available for you to enjoy on Netflix.
However, there aren’t many anime out there that are as strange, crazy, unique and addicting as Dorohedoro.
As The Cinemaholic puts it: “Dorohedoro is absolute chaos but you once you’re hooked on to it, there’s no turning back.”
The series is an adaption of the original manga series by Q Hayashida and is produced by MAPPA – the animation studio behind The God of High School, the Jujutsu Kaisen adaptation and the final season of Attack on Titan.
So, after a memorable first impression, fans are wondering if and when the anime will return to Netflix for season 2.
Will there be a season 2 of Dorohedoro?
- At the time of writing, Dorohedoro has not yet been renewed for a second season on Netflix, but the series is highly likely to return at some point.
Whilst there may not be an official statement regarding the future of Dorohedoro from Netflix, the show’s director Yuichiro Hayashi has promised that he will produce a second season if the first does well enough.
There is also plenty of source material from the original manga series left to adapt, with season 1 only covering eight of the 23 published volumes.
Hopefully, an official announcement that Dorohedoro has been renewed will be made before the end of 2020, so keep checking in for the latest updates.
Dorohedoro season 2: Release date
- An official release date for Dorohedoro season 2 has not yet been revealed, but fans are expecting the series to return in fall 2021.
The premiere of season 2 on Netflix entirely depends on when the series is renewed and when it airs in Japan.
Whilst there are reports that season 2 could premiere as soon as January 2021, this is likely too optimistic of a prediction considering the series is yet to be officially renewed and MAPPA remaining one of the busiest animation studios in the industry.
As the series will likely arrive on Netflix a few months after the Japanese premiere, a more realistic prediction would be fall-2021 – but again, this all depends on if and when production can resume.
Dorohedoro OVA series…
A six-part Dorohedoro OVA series premiered on Netflix on Thursday, October 15th, 2020.
Each episode lasted approximately five minutes and told a different side story from some of our favourite characters, in a gorgeous manga-like visual style.
Unfortunately, there was no information or content that would suggest a second season was on the cards or in production.
