So far, Wise Man’s Grandchild 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 Wise Man’s Grandchild and when it will be released.
The anime series Wise Man’s Grandchild, known as Kenja No Mago in Japanese, is based on a successful light novel of the same name that was first published in 2015. The Wise Man’s Grandchild light novel series is written by Tsuyoshi Yoshioka and illustrated by Seiji Kikuchi.
Wise Man’s Grandchild is a great isekai fantasy anime series with action elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Shin Wolford, who is reincarnated into an unknown world as a baby, but that doesn’t stop him from quickly becoming one of the strongest people in the series.
The anime television series Wise Man’s Grandchild has only had one season so far directed by Masafumi Tamura and animated by Studio Silver Link. There is no word on whether the studio or the director will return for Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2.
The first 12-episode Wise Man’s Grandchild television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2019. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 Episode 1 or any sequel.

Will There Be Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2?
Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that Wise Man’s Grandchild will have a Season 2. More than 4 years have passed since the first season aired, and if there were any plans to continue the series with a second season, they would have been realized long ago. Two key reasons contribute to the unlikelihood of Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2.
Firstly, the anime failed to become popular or generate a good profit. That’s why it’s unlikely that a production committee would decide to fund the second season of Wise Man’s Grandchild. The first season only sold about 900 copies of each Blu-ray, which is awful. The light novels sold fewer than 15,000 copies per volume after the anime.
Secondly, the Wise Man’s Grandchild light novel has concluded with volume 17, leaving no additional source material to promote this franchise. Interestingly, the author started a sequel series for Wise Man’s Grandchild called Demon Lord’s Successor. However, the nail in the coffin was when the mobile game shut down just 6 months after its release.
In conclusion, fans of Wise Man’s Grandchild should not anticipate a Season 2. The age of the series, the source material situation, the profit circumstances, and the author moving on all contribute to its improbability. While anything is possible, the likelihood of Wise Man’s Grandchild continuing is remote.
I highly recommend checking out the Wise Man’s Grandchild light novel. If you’ve lost hope for a new season of this anime, you can start reading the light novel from Volume 4. The first season of the anime adapted 1 through 3.
Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 Release Date?
Wise Man’s Grandchild Season 2 has not been confirmed, canceled, or announced, resulting in the absence of an official release date. Therefore, there is no countdown, and it is unlikely that a release date will ever be announced. Unfortunately, it seems that a second season will not be happening.
This is one of the anime sequels where it is clear that a new season and release date will never be announced.
The only decent-selling aspect of this series is the manga, which usually sells around 80,000 to 100,000 copies per volume. That’s not bad, but it’s not enough to warrant spending a few million dollars to make another season, especially when even the merchandise did poorly.
We will update this post accordingly if there is any news or a release date for a new Wise Man’s Grandchild anime project on the official Kenja No Mago Twitter account.

Final Thoughts on Wise Man’s Grandchild and its Sequel
Although many anime fans are hoping for an announcement regarding Season 2 of the Wise Man’s Grandchild anime, it is unlikely to happen.
