Death Parade Season 2 is a highly anticipated sequel, fueled by the resounding success and popularity of its debut season in 2015. So, it’s no surprise that fans are still wondering about the renewal of this anime for a second season.

Here’s everything we currently know about the potential for a new season of Death Parade. Will Decim ever deal another hand of cards?

The anime series ‘Death Parade‘ is an adaptation of the short film ‘Death Billiards‘, originally produced by Madhouse as part of the Young Animator Training Project in 2013. This short film served as the foundation for the one-cour anime series, which was expanded and overseen by writer and director Yuzuru Tachikawa.

“Death Parade” stands out as an exceptional psychological thriller anime series loved by fans worldwide. Its story revolves around a bar where pairs of deceased individuals engage in a high-stakes Death Game that decides their fate in the afterlife. Through these games, the true nature and hidden secrets of the participants are unveiled.

The anime television series Death Parade has only had one season. It was co-produced by VAP, DAX Production, and Nippon Television Network, the series was made available for streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu.

Unfortunately, since its 12th episode aired in 2015, Death Parade has not received a renewal for a second season.

The first season of the Death Parade television anime series concluded over 9 years ago. So, can we expect Death Parade Season 2 Episode 1 or some other continuation in the future?

Will There Be A Season 2 Of Death Parade?

Death Parade Season 2 will never happen. Unfortunately, there is no source material for another season. That is why they never planned the second season of this anime. It was a one-time project, and there have been no updates or announcements from the creator or the studio since then.

Adding to the pessimism is the anime’s popularity and fan demand. The first season received mixed reviews and ratings, with an average score of 8.2 out of 10 on MyAnimeList. Some fans have been hoping for a sequel since the first season ended in 2015, but others have been satisfied with the conclusion.

The main issue stems from the fact it’s an anime original story. The first season had no source material to follow, and the story was entirely created by the director, Yuzuru Tachikawa. The series had a unique premise and style, and a complex theme and message.

How to continue the Death Parade story after the first season? There is no source material so there is no way to continue this story.

So, if you want to re-watch the story with all the details and the highest, take a look at Death Parade: The Complete Series [Blu-ray].

It contains the complete series (12 episodes on 2 DVDs / Blu-rays) with the box cover slip. The cover art also looks incredible.

I highly recommend checking out Death Parade merchandise. There are plenty of amazing things made for this franchise, even after only one season.

I will update this post with any news or a release date for a new Death Parade anime project from the official Death Parade Twitter account or Crunchyroll.
