Will There Be Accel World Season 2? (Updated 2021)

So far, Accel World Season 2 has not been officially announced, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime, but the question is, will there be an Accel World Season 2 and a release date for it?

Here’s what we know so far about whether or not there will be a new season and when it will be released.

The anime series Accel World, known as Akuseru Wārudo in Japanese, is based on a successful light novel of the same name that was first published in 2009. The Accel World light novel series is written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by HiMA.

Accel World is an action sci-fi series with gaming elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Kuroyukihime and Haruyuki, who together are trying to reach level 10 to learn who is the creator of the brain burst. 

The anime television series Accel World has only had one season so far along with a movie called Accel World: Infinite Burst all directed by Masakazu Obara and animated by Studio Sunrise. There is no confirmation if the studio or director would be returning for a sequel.

The first 24-episode Accel World television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2012. Since then, it has amassed a large fan base that is growing with each new anime project and still waiting for a continuation.

Will there be Accel World Season 2?

Unfortunately, Accel World Season 2 will almost certainly never happen. If Kadokawa had any intention of doing a second season of Accel World, it would have happened a long time ago. The tenth anniversary of the first season’s broadcast is coming up next year, and after ten years, there is no longer any interest in this series among fans, the author, or even the studio.

It’s sad because this series sold well. The first season sold close to 9,000 copies per blu-ray, the light novels sold more than 100,000 copies per volume in 2014, and even the merchandise and games did well. The movie Infinite Burst did decently as well, considering it was a half-recap.

There’s also plenty of material left over for another season. However, none of that matters because this franchise has been neglected for the past five years. For the past few years, there has been no promotion, no new merchandise, and even the release speed of light novels has been slow.

Accel World Season 2 Release Date

There is no official release date for Accel World Season 2 because a second season was never confirmed or announced, and if there is no news or release date for Accel World Season 2 in 2022, it will not happen.

If we don’t hear anything regarding a release date for the second season of Accel World in 2022, I’d think it’s unlikely to happen. It will mark the anime’s tenth anniversary. There isn’t a better time to surprise us with something new for the franchise.

We will update this post if there is any news or a release date for Accel World announced in 2022 on the Accel World official Twitter account. If you’ve given up hope that a new Accel World season will ever be released, you can start reading the light novel from volume 5 since the anime covered volumes 1 to 4 and 10.
