Death Note Season 2 is a highly anticipated sequel, fueled by the success and popularity of its first season in 2006 and 2007. So, it’s no surprise that fans are still wondering about the renewal of this anime for a second season.

Here is everything we know so far about the possibility of a new season of Death Note and when it could potentially be released.

The anime series “Death Note” is based on a popular and successful thriller manga series of the same name, first published in 2003. The “Death Note” manga series is written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata.

“Death Note” is an exceptional thriller anime series beloved by fans worldwide. It centers around the conflict between Light Yagami, a teenage genius who decides to use a supernatural notebook called a Death Note to create a new world order, and L, a mysterious and eccentric detective who is determined to stop him.

The anime television series Death Note has only had one season. It was directed by Tetsurō Araki and animated by Madhouse. There is also a Netflix live adaptation.

There has been no announcement on whether the studio and director will return for a potential new season of Death Note.

The first 37-episode Death Note television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2006. It ended in June 2007. So, can we expect Death Note Season 2 Episode 1 or some other continuation?

Will There Be A Season 2 Of Death Note?

Death Note season 2 is yet to be officially announced. However, the possibility of more episodes seems to be slim. little manga material remains for another season. The first season covered all 12 volumes of the manga, leaving only a few one-shot chapters and spin-offs for a potential second season.

Adding to the pessimism is the anime’s mixed reception among fans.. The first season received critical acclaim and popularity, with an average score of 8.6 out of 10 on MyAnimeList. However, many fans were disappointed by the second half of the series and the ending. It wasn’t bad, but compared to the first half, it was lacking.

The manga series ended in 2006. There have been no new developments since then. Only the Netflix adaptation, but we don’t talk about that. While it’s not impossible, a new season might not happen because the story is completed so it doesn’t need one.

How to continue the Death Note story after the first season? The anime covered all the volumes. All you can do is read the manga from the start for a complete experience.

So, if you want to get the story from the source material with all the details, take a look at Death Note manga volume 1 in English.

The anime skipped scenes during the Yotsuba arc and basically cut Near and Mello’s screentime in half. They also removed a lot of Light’s scenes and completely got rid of the epilogue.

I highly recommend checking out Death Note manga. Many fans prefer manga to anime, and it is the only way to get all of the story in 2024.

I will update this post with any news or a release date for a new Death Note anime project from Crunchyroll.
