Chainsaw Man was hyped as early as many months before the anime adaptation was announced. But can fans expect more content from the anime? Will there be a Chainsaw Man Season 2? And if so, when will it come out?

Chainsaw Man is so popular that it can be considered a pop culture phenomenon in the anime world. As such, its renewal is very likely, and supported by recent reported leaks.

It has generated a wealth of memes, fanfiction, cosplays, and merch, so Chainsaw Man Season 2 is pretty much guaranteed at this point.

Some fans have even been disappointed at the number of Chainsaw Man episodes in Season 1.

Many had hoped that the studio MAPPA anime would cover the entire Public Safety arc of the Chainsaw Man manga. But with only 12 episodes, the Chainsaw Man anime covered about half of that.

Already, we've seen many Chainsaw Man moments we couldn't wait to see animated, but the latter half of the Public Safety arc is where things get really wild.

The Chainsaw Man anime is arguably a high-quality production, with a different ending song per episode.

Therefore, taking it slow and starting with a modest first season seems to have paid off.

But this isn't the last we expect to see of the show.

Given the warm reception Chainsaw Man has received so far, it's clear that there would be an audience eagerly awaiting the rest of the story.

Therefore, we don't see why a second season wouldn't be made as its success is already guaranteed.

Of course, Chainsaw Man's reception in Japan was a bit less enthusiastic as many fans perceived the anime to be inferior to Tatsuki Fujimoto's manga.

The requests for a reboot in Japan have led some fans to worry that Chainsaw Man could be canceled.

There's no indication so far that this is happening, but not getting an update a year after the anime dropped for the first time feels increasingly disappointing.

As of writing, the exact release date of Chainsaw Man Season 2 hasn't been confirmed yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if news about it came out soon.

That being said, the MAPPA Stage 2023 event frustrated fans as it involved little to no new information about the series.

The event included appearances by Chainsaw Man voice actors Kikunosuke Toya (Denji), Fairouz Ai (Power), and Shogo Sakata (Aki Hayakawa).

However, there was no announcement about Season 2's release date, nor any trailer, as fans had hoped.

According to leaks circulating the internet, Chainsaw Man Season 2 is likely, but a Chainsaw Man movie might actually be coming out next.

The finale of Season 1 concluded with a characteristic quote by Reze, one of the main characters in the next arc that directly follows the Katana Man arc, which the anime finished adapting.

The fact that we already have a voice actor for Reze suggests that there's a high chance that Season 2 is already in the making, or at least extensively planned.

Since the Bomb Girl arc where Reze appears is quite short, we could see Chainsaw Man becoming a movie to keep fans' interest until a second season is in the works.

For many popular anime titles, new content such as OVAs, Specials, or second seasons are announced immediately after a season finale. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case with Chainsaw Man.

Depending on the production and the studio's other commitments, a second season can take one to two years to make.

For instance, Jujutsu Kaisen got a second season two years after its original run, though it also got a movie in between.

Fans were hoping that major news about Season 2 (or at least a Reze movie) would come out at the Chainsaw Man Festival.

As this didn't happen, we aren't sure when we can hope for more updates.

Which Studio Will Produce Chainsaw Man Season 2?

We couldn't imagine anyone but MAPPA producing Season 2 of Chainsaw Man.

At this point, the anime studio is established as home to all members of the dark trio of shounen anime.

Despite the less warm reception domestically, MAPPA is considered to have done a good job adapting the anime so far, and their first season actually teases Reze's appearance, too.

As such, it would only make sense for MAPPA to keep animating Chainsaw Man. We also expect Chainsaw Man's cast to remain mostly the same.

The Chainsaw Man manga is quite far ahead. If Season 2 happens, we'd expect it to cover the latter half of the Public Safety arc.


In it, the research for the Gun Devil becomes more fervent, with devastating results.

Without spoiling much, we can say that Season 2 would involve one of the creepiest arcs yet, with a Devil so frightening even the characters themselves are traumatized.

Makima's plans will fully unfold, and the family that Denji, Aki, and Power have bloomed into isn't ready for it.

As Makima's search for the Gun Devil intensifies, Season 2 will be full of shocking realizations, unhinged fight scenes, and tragedy.
