The ‘Given’ anime movie has just premiered around the world on Crunchyroll, but will the series return for season 2 and if so, when could it release?
After more than a year off-stage, our favourite boyband is finally ready for another incredible concert of emotions.
Given: The Movie premiered around the world this week on the Crunchyroll streaming platform to a fantastic reception.
However, this has left many fans curious as to what this means for the anime series and whether we will ever get a second season of Given?
Given renewal status…
- At the time of writing, Given season 2 has not been officially confirmed, nor has it been ruled out by Studio Lerche.
Unfortunately, it is currently unclear whether the Given TV anime series will return for another season.
On one hand, the original manga series still ongoing, meaning there is plenty more source material that could be adapted into at least one more season of the anime.
However, the manga currently only has two completed arcs; the first was covered in season 1 and the second in the movie. Therefore, a decision on renewing the series may depend on when the manga can provide enough source material to produce season 2.
Many fans are expecting more information on Given season 2 to be revealed in the upcoming weeks, once the production team are able to gauge the audience reaction to the movie.
Given season 2 release date…
An official release date for Given season 2 is yet to be revealed, but fans shouldn’t expect the anime to return until at least mid-2022.
The problem with Given is that the anime (series and movie together) have covered almost all the available content from the two main arcs in the manga.
Considering the rate at which new chapters are being released and how quickly the anime covered the earlier content, production on season 2 may have to take a back seat until enough source material is being produced.
Following the premiere of the movie, Given season 2 will likely release in 2022, potentially 2023 depending on the rate that a new arc can be written.
This article will be updated as soon as new information on Given season 2 is officially revealed.
