It was officially announced on January 31th, 2021, as part of GA Bunko 15th anniversary celebrations that the anime adaptation of Goblin Slayer is getting a second season, but when will Goblin Slayer season 2 be released, and what will the plot be about?
Here’s what we know so far about the new season and the release date.
The anime series Goblin Slayer, also known as Goburin Sureiyā in Japanese, is based on a successful light novel of the same name that was first published in 2016. The Goblin Slayer light novel series is written by Kumo Kagyu and illustrated by Noboru Kannatsuki.
Goblin Slayer is a dark fantasy series loved by people worldwide, which follows an adventurer called Goblin Slayer, whose only purpose is the eradication of goblins with extreme prejudice.
The anime television series Goblin Slayer has only had one season so far along with a movie called Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown all directed by Takaharu Ozaki and animated by Studio White Fox. It hasn’t been revealed yet which studio will be working on the next season.
The first 12-episode Goblin Slayer television anime series premiered in Japan in October 2018. Since then, it has amassed a large fan base that is growing with each new anime project.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, GA Bunko has yet to announce when Goblin Slayer season 2 will be released. We need to wait for more information about the second season. But, when the second season gets a release date on the Goblin Slayer official Twitter account, we will let you know.
However, the most likely release date is either January 2022 or April 2022. Most anime series are usually released 6 to 9 months after they are announced. So we should hear something about the date in the next few months.
Let’s hope we will get to learn when Goblin Slayer season 2 is coming out soon. Many anime fans want to know when season 2 of Goblin Slayer will be released, but for now, all we can do is wait for some news or updates.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Plot
So far, the anime adaptation of Goblin Slayer has covered volumes 1 to 2. The movie covered the whole volume 5. As a result, volume 3 continues where the anime ends. So, if you can’t wait for Goblin Slayer Season 2 to be out, you may start reading volume 3 now.
In Japan, there are currently 15 light novel volumes of Goblin Slayer released. In 2021, the light novel Goblin Slayer is still ongoing. That means the story isn’t over yet. Goblin Slayer Season 2 will take the story forward and it’s expected to cover light novel volumes 3, 4, and 6.
So three more volumes of Goblin Slayer will be adapted into anime by most likely studio White Fox. It will take two more seasons after that to adapt everything from the Goblin Slayer franchise that is currently available.

Goblin Slayer Trailer
There is currently no trailer for Goblin Slayer Season 2, but we will post it here as soon as it becomes available. Here is a teaser for season 2, for now, that was released by GA Bunko.
The current situation in Japan with the pandemic means that a lot of anime series will be delayed. So let’s hope that the production of Goblin Slayer Season 2 by the most likely studio, White Fox, will not be affected by that too much.
