Just a year after the end of the first season, Edens Zero 2nd Season has been confirmed. And considering the current events in the manga, we can guarantee you that the new season will be amazing!
The anime of the popular studio J.C. Staff, Edens Zero, will officially get a second season. Edens Zero 2nd season release date will be next year.
The first season officially premiered in April 2021 and has 25 episodes. It ran until October 2021, and covered the first 68 chapters of the manga, ending with the Sun Jewel arc.
The teaser trailer, released on September 16, 2022, confirmed the release date of the new season. It also revealed which arc from the manga will be adapted.
Edens Zero 2nd Season Release Date and Trailer
The trailer released on September 16, 2022, announced the release date of season 2. The exact release date is still unknown, although the second season of Edens Zero will start airing in April 2023.
The exact number of episodes is yet to be announced, but it is logical to assume that the new season will have between 12 and 25 episodes. Since, as the plot progresses, the story becomes more complex, it is difficult to predict which arcs will be adapted in season 2.
We can definitely expect adaptations of the Belial Gore arc (from chapters 69 to 99) and the Edens One arc (from chapters 100 to 104). The question remains whether the anime will begin covering the Aoi Cosmos saga.
Edens Zero 2nd Season Staff and Cast
The staff for Edens Zero will remain largely unchanged. J.C. Staff will once again be the responsible studio, and Shinji Ishihara will be the chief director. Unfortunately, Yushi Suzuki, who directed the anime, passed away on September 9, 2021.
