Fans of the hit anime ‘The Duke of Death and His Maid’ will be delighted to hear that season 2 has been officially confirmed, but when could it release online?

This week marks the conclusion of the Summer anime slate, with fans around the world saying goodbye to their favourite series.

However, one of the worst things about saying goodbye to a fantastic show is its future; will the series return for another season or was that the final farewell?

Well, fans of The Duke of Death and His Maid will be able to breathe a sigh of relief, following a recent announcement from the series’ production team.

The Duke of Death and His Maid season 2 confirmed…

It was officially confirmed that The Duke of Death and His Maid was renewed for season 2 only moments after the season finale aired on Funimation.

Alongside the news of season 2, a short teaser video was uploaded by the NBC Universal Anime Music YouTube channel, see below:

Whilst the news of a second season was welcomed by fans, not many would have been too surprised to see the anime greenlit for another adventure.

Anime renewals are typically dependent on the availability of source material and popularity, two factors that The Duke of Death and His Maid have plenty of.

Season 1 episode 12 adapted up until volume 5 chapter 68 of the original manga series. The good news is that, at the time of writing, 13 volumes have been published in Japan.

Similarly, the series has experienced a generally favourable reception from fans and critics alike – despite some criticism surrounding the CGI animation.

Unfortunately, Funimation does not publicly reveal the number of streams for simulcast titles. However, The Duke of Death and His Maid consistently appeared on the Top 10 Anime of the Week rankings for Summer and is scoring a solid 7.68/10 on MyAnimeList with over 30,000 reviews.

“This show gave Disney vibes all over, this show was sweet and had an intriguing story, The characters were nicely portrayed and the plot was well executed. The CGI was a bit of a letdown but still, I loved this show… Overall I had a great time watching this show and I’m really looking forward to season 2 to see how the story folds.” – Nero_18, via MAL.

Has a release date for season 2 been revealed?

Whilst season 2 of The Duke of Death and His Maid was confirmed after episode 12 aired, a targeted release date has not been confirmed by either the production team or distribution partners.

The anime adaptation of Koharu Inoue’s hit manga was formally announced in February 2021, but it is safe to say that production had already started a few months previously with the series only making its television debut in July.

Announcing a second season immediately after the finale also indicates that production on a sequel broadcast was already planned by JC Staff – reducing the potential time that fans will have to wait for season 2.

Similarly, the availability of source material from the manga also can give viewers hope that it won’t be a deathly-long wait to see Bocchana and Alice return.

Overall, fans can expect The Duke of Death and His Maid to return in July 2022 in accordance with the Summer anime slate.
