Will There Be No Game No Life Season 2? (Updated 2023)

So far, No Game No Life Season 2 has not been officially announced, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime. The question remains whether there will be a new season and when it will be released.

Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not there will be a new season of NGNL and when it will be released.

The anime series No Game No Life, known as Nō Gēmu Nō Raifu in Japanese, is based on a successful light novel of the same name that was first published in 2012. The No Game No Life light novel series is written and illustrated by Yū Kamiya.

No Game No Life is a great isekai fantasy anime series with gaming elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Shiro and Sora shut-in NEET siblings that are online gamers behind the legendary nickname Blank that view the whole world just as a game. One day, Tet, a god from another reality, challenges them to play a game.

The anime television series No Game No Life has only had one season so far along with a movie called No Game No Life: Zero directed by Atsuko Ishizuka and animated by Studio MadhouseThere is no word on whether the studio or the director will return for No Game No Life Season 2.

The first 12-episode No Game No Life television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2014. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for either No Game No Life Season 2 Episode 1 or any sequel.

Will There Be No Game No Life Season 2?

There will be a No Game No Life Season 2. We should expect some news about the second season of No Game No Life in 2023 or 2024. The reasons why there is still no second season are that the series was on a long hiatus due to the author’s health, and it has been challenging to reunite the same staff for another season.

Firstly, the good news is that the author’s health has improved. After a long hiatus, volumes 11 and 12 of No Game No Life were released in the past two years. The author mentioned that the story of NGNL is entering its final stage at the end of volume 11, and volume 13 or 14 should be the last one.

Secondly, this series has been a huge financial success, with phenomenal Blu-Ray sales of around 9,000 copies per volume. The light novels are also selling well, with approximately 160,000 copies sold per volume, and there is plenty of merch and figurines available. The author has also stated:

‘I cannot tell you the exact reason why there is no second season, but it is not a problem of money, nor with anyone else. Perhaps the problem lies in the fact that it was executed so well, to the point where it is difficult to create a second season with the same level of quality.’

In conclusion, fans of No Game No Life should anticipate Season 2. Once studio Madhouse has some time and the director and staff can regroup, we should receive an announcement. The likelihood of No Game No Life continuing is high.

I highly recommend checking out the No Game No Life light novel. If you can’t wait for a new season of the No Game No Life anime, you can start reading the light novel from Volume 4. The first season of the anime adapted volumes 1 through 3, and the movie covered volume 6.”

No Game No Life Season 2 Release Date?

No Game No Life Season 2 has not been confirmed, canceled, or announced, resulting in the absence of an official release date. Therefore, there is no countdown, but a release date will likely be announced sooner or later. The earliest possible release date for No Game No Life Season 2 is late 2024.

Even if the sequel is announced this year, it will take at least a year to animate, so don’t expect it to come out anytime soon.

Studio Madhouse is busy this year with three TV series and two movies, but they haven’t announced much for next year yet. The director also doesn’t have a new project yet, as she just finished a movie. If we are lucky, the next project will be a No Game No Life sequel.

We will update this post accordingly if there is any news or a release date for a new No Game No Life anime project on the official No Game No Life Twitter account.
