The Curse Continues: Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date Announced

Jujutsu Kaisen is based on the concept of curses, yet Gege Akutami’s manga and subsequent anime are anything but cursed.

The anime also shatters many records, notably with the most recent prequel movie, Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Since this franchise debuted in March 2018, the source material has already become one of the best-selling mangas ever.

But what lies ahead for Yuji and his friends? Prepare your finest cursed moves and join us at Digital Spy as we preview the next episodes of Jujutsu Kaisen season two.

When will the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen premiere?

The second season of Jujutsu Kaisen debuts on July 6, 2023. Along with the expanded teaser trailer you can see above, the release date in March was announced by the official Jujutsu Kaisen Twitter account.

The news comes after some earlier disclosures regarding the organization of the new season. At the production company TOHO‘s 10th anniversary celebration in September 2022, we learned that season two would be released in two parts or courses, each focusing on a different manga arc. Similar to the release timetable of other anime episodes like SPY x FAMILY, this split-cour strategy is expected in gaming.

Additionally, we’ve seen a preview of what those story arcs will be like, thanks to two teaser images. The latest, “The Shibuya Incident,” includes our contemporary heroes Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, and Nobara Kugisaki. The first features Gojo Satoru, Geto Suguru, and Shoko Ieiri in their Jujutsu High uniforms (suggesting a prologue arc).

Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 cast: Who’s in it? 

Leading voice performers in Japanese and English that we anticipate will return for Jujutsu Kaisen season two are listed below:

However, what about Jujutsu Kaisen’s lead actor, Yuta Okkotsu? The manga hints at his imminent appearance in the main series, and a post-credits sequence in the prequel film also confirms it.

When we inquired about this possibility, English voice actress Kayleigh McKee provided the following response:

“I would certainly love it if that happened. Honestly, I know nothing of where Yuta will go from here, if anywhere, but if he comes back, I would be very excited to explore him further evolving and maturing.”

McKee added: “My idea of what I think he would be and become, as he matures further after learning these lessons, and potentially going through more hardships, and how he’ll handle those differently, is so exciting to think about.

“Being able to get that ability to portray more evolution for a character like this, who’s one of my favorite characters that I’ve portrayed, is an excellent thought. And I do hope it happens.”

What will happen in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2?

Jujutsu Kaisen’s debut season, The Death Painting Arc, which appears in chapters 55–64 of the manga, is where I left off. ‘Gojo’s Past Arc’ from chapters 65 to 79 will be the chronological start of season two’s reading of the original text.

According to trailers and teaser photos, the manga’s Shibuya Incident arc will take place at Jujutsu High after the flashback arc.

Season two will deal with crucial character changes and reveal the identity of the mole hiding out in the school without giving away too much.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0’s post-credits scene also implied that Yuta would soon show up, which sounds fantastic in principle but, well, let’s just say this doesn’t bode well for Yuji.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Trailer: When can I see it 

Jujutsu Kaisen season two’s revised teaser trailer debuted in March, along with the show’s July 6 premiere date. It also hinted at the entrance of a few significant figures from Gojo and Geto’s backgrounds.

You can watch it on the official tweeter account of Jujutsu Kaisen EN:

In particular, we have their classmate Riko Amanai and the enigmatic Toji Fushiguro, who was assigned to kill her. He also happens to be the father of Megumi, a current Jujutsu High student.

You can watch Jujutsu Kaisen on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
