With MAPPA’s immaculate animation, and Gege Akutami’s incredible story, Jujutsu Kaisen has reached new heights in terms of popularity, so it was only a matter of time for the new season to be announced.
It took almost a year, but eventually, on February 12, 2022, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 was confirmed. And even though it took that much time, MAPPA didn’t leave fans without content. In December 2021, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 had its premiere and gave a completely new look at the show, causing even bigger hype.
