Is Accel World season 2 confirmed? Accel World Season 2 has yet to be officially confirmed, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime series. What are the chances of Accel World Season 2 coming out?

Here’s everything you should know regarding the chances of new season of Accel World and if it will ever be released.

The anime series Accel World, is based on a successful light novel of the same name, first published in 2009. The Made in Abyss light novel series is written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by HiMA.

Accel World is a fantastic science fantasy adventure anime series loved by people worldwide, which follows Haruyuki Arita, a bullied middle school student who gets invited by Kuroyukihime to join the Brain Burst program.

The anime television series Accel World has only had one season so far along with a movie called Accel World: Infinite Burst and 2 EX OVA all directed by Masakazu Obara and animated by Studio Sunrise.

There has been no announcement on whether the studio and director would return for a new season of Accel World.

The first 24-episode Accel World television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2012. The movie Accel World: Infinite Burst aired in 2016. So when can we expect the Accel World Season 2 to come out, if ever?

When Will the Second Season of Accel World Be Released?

As of August 2023, publisher Kadokawa hasn’t released any news about a sequel anime, and neither have any rumors flared up. So at this time, it’s all just a game of random predictions for the Accel World Season 2 release date.

The release is still several years away, even if it gets confirmed this year. Rest assured, as soon as there are any news known, we will let you know! We will be among the first to report on any hints or rumors of season 2.

Good news! The author has expressed in 2014 that he is pushing the Accel World Season 2. But, unfortunately, Sunrise, was busy with the Love Live anime. But, at least from that statement, we know that the author also wants a sequel to his work.

The author is occupied with finishing Sword Art Online in 2023, and the studio Sunrise is still working on the Love Live anime. Still, the 15th anniversary of the light novel is happening in April 2024, so maybe we will get some info then.

In the meantime, let’s delve into details about Accel World Season 2. What can we expect from the next season?

What Can We Expect from Accel World Season 2?

The plot of season two will center around Haru, Kuroyukihime and the rest of Nega Nebulus and it will focus on the next stage of the game: space.

The mysterious Acceleration Research Society will make their move, and the Seven Kings of Pure Color will hand down their judgement on Chrome Disaster and Haru.

The first season of the anime adapted light novel volumes 1 to 4 and 10, the movie is around volume 18, and the two OVA are anime original.

Season 2 is expected to adapt light novel volumes 5 to 9 – five books, following the pacing of the previous season.

So, if you want to continue the story from where the anime ended and lost hope for a sequel, have a look at Accel World light novel volume 5 in English.

Accel World has not been confirmed yet for a second season, but this series is not over, the light novel is still ongoing. However, that won’t be the case for much longer. The series will likely end with the next two to four light novel volumes.

Season 2 seems unlikely at this point, so if you want to get more of this story, the best option is to pick the light novel, there are 26 volumes currently. We should get a full translation if nothing else, which is always nice to see!

I highly recommend checking out the Accel World Light Novel. For many fans, the light novel is the best and only way to continue the story in 2023.
