The first season of Goblin Slayer was a smash hit around the world, but will the anime return for season 2 and if so, when could it premiere?

Despite being one of the more controversial anime in recent memory, Goblin Slayer was nothing short of a global success.

However, it’s been over two long years since the anime series concluded and fans have been getting restless for more Goblin Slayer episodes.

Thankfully, there has recently been some excellent news concerning Goblin Slayer season 2 that will excite fans once again.

Goblin Slayer season 2…

  • Fans will be delighted to know that Goblin Slayer season 2 has been confirmed to be in production.

The announcement was made this week during GA FES 2021, where it was officially confirmed that season 2 was ‘in production’ alongside a new teaser video and image, see below.

However, not many fans of the series will be too surprised by this news. At the time of writing, Goblin Slayer is scoring an impressive 7.47/10 on My Anime List, 7.5/10 on IMDB and 4.6/5 on Crunchyroll.

Goblin Slayer season 2 release date…

The official release date for Goblin Slayer season 2 was not confirmed as part of the renewal announcement.

An optimistic prediction would be that Goblin Slayer would return in October 2021, the same month that season 1 aired.

However, considering the pandemic continuing to affect the production of anime, a more realistic prediction would be for early-2022.

Interestingly, the official announcement stated that season 2 was already ‘in production’, rather than that it had been ordered. Could this mean that there have been a few months of production already?

This article will be updated as soon as more information on Goblin Slayer is revealed.
