Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Officially Confirmed + Release Date Info

As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

A new anime project for Jujutsu Kaisen got announced, Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, but there is no release date for the second season of this anime series.

The question is, when is Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 coming out? And how many manga volumes will the new season cover?

In this post, we will answer when the Jujutsu Kaisen Anime Season 2 is coming out, as well as how many episodes will JJK season 2 have, but first, some essential info:

Jujutsu Kaisen is a fantastic shounen-action anime series with supernatural elements. The main character of this anime series is Yuuji Itadori.

The story is about Yuuji Itadori, who becomes a host to Sukuna, a demon known as the undisputed king of curses. He needs to consume all of Sukuna’s fingers, which will allow him to destroy Sukuna once and for all.

So far, there is only one season. The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen has 24 episodes and aired from October 2020 to March 2021. There is also a movie from 2021 called Jujutsu Kaisen 0.

The movie, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, is a prequel. It takes place before the events of the first season. Most Jujutsu Kaisen fans will see the movie in 2022 once it’s available on streaming platforms later this year.

The release date for Jujutsu Kaisen s2 has yet to get announced, and this anime series has many fans that want to know when the next season of Jujutsu Kaisen is coming out so they can watch Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 episode 1.

So now, let’s look at which manga volumes the new season will adapt and the most likely Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 release date.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Manga

The Jujutsu Kaisen anime series, known as JJK or 呪術廻戦 in Japan, is based on a successful manga.

The Jujutsu Kaisen manga series is written and illustrated by Gege Akutami.

How many volumes of Jujutsu Kaisen are there?

Is The Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Finished?

The Jujutsu Kaisen manga series is still ongoing in 2022. The manga is at volume 19. Gege Akutami, the author, published the latest volume in Japan on April 4, 2022.

In 2021, there were five new manga volumes released. Also, the Jujutsu Kaisen manga volume 20 release date is likely to be July 2022. It looks like this year will see fewer volumes of JJK manga.

Where Does Jujutsu Kaisen Anime End In The Manga?

MovieVolume 0

Jujutsu Kaisen anime ends at manga volume 7. So, if you want to read from where the anime ended and continue the Jujutsu Kaisen story, check out Jujutsu Kaisen manga Volume 8 in English.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 should have between 24 and 26 episodes. The Shibuya Incident arc is far too large for a single cour season, and I could see a split cour second season with 13 episodes for each cour.

I recommend checking out the Jujutsu Kaisen Manga.

It will take the anime three to five years to adapt all the Jujutsu Kaisen manga volumes, even if we get Jujutsu Kaisen season 3 soon after the second one.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date


The release date for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 has yet to be announced, and the only thing that is confirmed is that we are getting a second season.

The second season of the Jujutsu Kaisen anime release date is likely January or April 2023.

On average, after a new season gets announced, it takes around 12 to 18 months for the new season to be released.

So, the most likely release date of the Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 is the first half of 2023. It will release in either the winter or spring season of anime.

Studio MAPPA has done a great job with this anime adaptation, and they will make Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 fantastic as well.

Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 is not coming out in 2022. I see some people think it will come out this year, but there is no reason for Shueisha to rush the second season release date.

This post will get updated as soon as there is any information on the Demon Slayer Season 3 release date on the official Jujutsu Kaisen Twitter account.

I recommend checking out the Jujutsu Kaisen merchandise if you are a fan of the JJK series while we wait for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 1 to get released on Crunchyroll.

Some examples of the fantastic merchandise made for Jujutsu Kaisen to check out are:
