Chainsaw Man Season 2 Might NOT Bring Back Director Ryu Nakayama

The reports surfaced over the weekend claiming that Chainsaw Man will be taking a different direction with Season 2. This immediately led to rumors that Ryu Nakayama will not be directing the second season.

But why would MAPPA decide against having Ryu Nakayama work on Chainsaw Man Season 2? It is believed that the director is being tasked with the studio's other big projects like the second half of Attack on Titan The Final Season Part 3.

For now, the reports are unconfounded but that didn't stop fans from worrying about the future of Chainsaw Man.

There haven't been any updates on Chainsaw Man Season 2 just yet. Although the anime had a special panel at MAPPA Stage 2023, there were no major updates about the second season.

Chainsaw Man's MAPPA Stage 2023 panel was attended by Kikunosuke Toya, Shogo Sakata, and Fairouz Ai. Makima VA Tomori Kusunoki was initially set to join the panel but was cancelled at the last minute due to poor health.

But is it possible that fans shouldn't be expecting the second season just yet? Previous speculations indicated that the first season of Chainsaw Man would consist of two cours and that we have only seen the first half of Season 1 so far.

The idea of Chainsaw Man's first season getting a second cour is a welcome one since technically, it would mean that Ryu Nakayama would still be in charge. On the other hand, MAPPA has not yet made an official announcement so stay tuned for more updates on this story.

The first season of Chainsaw Man premiered in October 2022 and consisted of 12 episodes. The final episode aired on December 28, 2022, with a tease of the arrival of Lady Reze.

For now, it has not yet been confirmed whether the first season is getting a second cour or if Chainsaw Man will move on with Season 2. However, there is a possibility that MAPPA will make an announcement in the next few weeks.
