Featuring lots of goblins, action-packed adventures, and challenging quests, Goblin Slayer is one of the best dark fantasy anime series of all time. It follows the story of a boy named Goblin Slayer who takes it upon himself to rid the world of goblins.
Its first season aired in December 2020 and ended at a major cliffhanger. A title card reading “Goblin Slayer will Return” appeared at the end of it. However, three years later there is still no sign of a second season.
What does this mean? Is the series canceled? Or are the producers just too busy to get started on the second season? Keep on reading to find out the latest information about Goblin Slayer Season 2.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release Date
After the controversial nature of Season 1, we were all a bit afraid of the series getting canceled. There were several sex scenes including a few non-consensual ones between goblins and human women. Fortunately, this did not affect the series’ popularity! Thus, fans will be glad to know that the producers have green-lit Goblin Slayer for a second season.
During the GA Bunko Anniversary on January 31, 2021, the producers announced the renewal of the series. They also shared a key visual for the upcoming season to get fans more excited!
Like all shows filming during the pandemic, Goblin Slayer Season 2’s release has been delayed. This is because production was halted for a while after a huge surge in covid cases. Thus, the second season will probably be released somewhere between early and mid-2022.
