The Duke of Death and His Maid is one of the most unique series that came out in the Summer of 2021. It’s a famous anime series! The Duke of Death and His Maid season 2 was recently revealed on the official Twitter account of the franchise, while the series is confirmed to be released in 2023, no further information is revealed regarding the release date, cast, and staff members.
The first season of this supernatural rom-com series was exciting and fun to watch but it left so many questions unanswered, and fans are hoping the sequel will reveal more information about the Duke’s curse and the reason behind why he was cursed by the witch.

The Duke of Death and His Maid season 2 trailer
The whole teaser trailer was basically a love confession of Duke expressing his feeling toward Alice in front of his mother, although we did see some new content toward the end. The anime director has done a great job executing the story. When you read the english subtitles, you can easily grasp the tension between the characters.
We expect the series to continue as it has been but with a little initiative toward lifting the curse from Duke.
The Duke of Death and His Maid Release Date
It’s final that the series will premiere in 2023. No information about the exact release window is out yet. But let’s go over all we know.
Studio J.C.Staff is currently working on seven projects right now. The release dates for the other shows have been confirmed so it seems unlikely the Duke of Death series will be included in the Winter line-up.
But seeing how lackluster the trailer was, we can assume the series is most likely still in the production phase. So we might see a return in the Spring or Summer of 2023.
The plot of The Duke of Death and His Maid
The duke of a noble family is forced to live in a mansion far away because of a childhood curse. Anything he touches withers instantly away and dies, be it living things or plants.
Although he was isolated because of his curse. He isn’t entirely alone, he has a loyal butler, Rob. He takes care of everything around the house with his childhood friend and the daughter of the family maid, Alice. She is there to serve him and make his life more exciting. Undoubtedly she is a beautiful maid.
Flirty maid Alice loves to tease Duke by often wearing revealing clothes. Or lifting up her skirt during serious arguments to lighten the mood. The blonde maid does this because she deeply cares about him and doesn’t want to feel all alone.
Both of them have mutual feelings of love. Duke has even confessed that he will ask her for marriage once the curse is lift. But how will they accomplish this task? Can our boy lift is deadly curse?
Availability Of Source Material
The Duke of Death and His Maid is a Japanese Rom-com manga series. Koharu Inoue has written and illustrated. The series first began serialization in October 2017 via Shogakukan’s Sunday Webry website.
The series recently concluded its story with sixteen volumes and 222 chapters. And the first season of the anime adaptation only covered 68 chapters.
There is easily more than enough source material to create two or even three additional seasons. We just hope the series doesn’t skip over the important parts and rush toward the end.
