Will There Be Akatsuki No Yona Season 2? (Updated 2021)

So far, Akatsuki no Yona Season 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 Akatsuki no Yona Season 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 Yona of the Dawn, known as Akatsuki no Yona in Japanese, is based on a successful manga of the same name that was first published in 2010. The Akatsuki no Yona manga series is written by and illustrated by Mizuho Kusanagi.

Akatsuki No Yona is a romance series with epic fantasy elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Yona a princess and the only heir of the Kouka Kingdom, but a sudden murder of the king and betrayal of her beloved cousin Su-won changes everything in Yona’s life.

The anime television series Akatsuki no Yona has only had one season so far and 3 OVA bundled with manga all directed by Kazuhiro Yoneda and animated by Studio Pierrot. There is no confirmation if the studio or director would be returning for a sequel.

The first 24-episode Akatsuki no Yona television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2014. 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 Akatsuki No Yona Season 2?

Unfortunately, Akatsuki no Yona Season 2 will very probably never happen. If there had been any intention of doing a second season of Akatsuki no Yona, it would have happened a long time ago. It will be seven years since the first season aired soon. Most anime series are followed by a sequel within two to four years.

Profit is most likely the main reason. The Blu-Ray only sold 3,000 copies, which is below average for 2015. The manga also only sells about 125,000 copies every volume, which isn’t terrible for a romance manga series, but it’s not the best. The sole saving grace is that there is a good amount of merchandise for this series, but there are no figures for Yona of the Dawn.

So the Atsuki no Yona anime failed to make enough profit for a second season. This is unfortunate because there is enough material remaining to continue this series. There is enough story in the manga for four more seasons of Akatsuki no Yona. I won’t say there’s a 0% possibility of Akatsuki no Yona Season 2, but it’s unlikely to be announced.

Akatsuki no Yona Season 2 Release Date

There is no official release date for Akatsuki no Yona Season 2 since a second season was never confirmed or announced, and it is quite probable that a release date will never be announced because a second season will most likely never happen.

I just wanted to let you know that there is still hope for a new season and a release date for this series. However, the odds of the second season of Akatsuki no Yona are slim, and if we don’t hear anything about it in the next one to two years, it won’t happen.

We will update this post if there is any news or a release date for Akatsuki no Yona announced in the future on the Akatsuki no Yona official Twitter account. If you’ve given up hope that a new Akatsuki no Yona season will ever be released, you can start reading the manga from volume 9 since the anime covered volumes 1 to 8.

Last Thoughts

Many anime fans would rejoice if Akatsuki no Yona Season 2 was announced, but this is unlikely to happen. I wouldn’t give it a high likelihood, but Yona of the Dawn may get rebooted in the future since it’s a pretty popular romance anime like Fruits Basket.
