What can we expect to see from the second season of Edens Zero?
After leaving his Granbell Kingdom home, Shiki has already made a handful of friends through his adventures with Rebecca and Happy. Now the rightful captain and owner of the space ship Edens Zero, in order to return the ship to its full power Shiki has recruited the Hermit, and after the passing of Valkyrie, Homura has stepped up to take her former master’s position on the ship.
Now that all four shining stars have been assembled Shiki and the crew of Edens Zero can finally begin the journey beyond the Sakura Cosmos. However, a dangerous enemy is in pursuit, Drakken Joe and his giant space fortress, the Belial Gore!
How many more seasons can we expect of Edens Zero?
At the time of writing, there are currently 171 published manga chapters, which is just short of the 60+ chapters we expect from each season. However, the manga is still ongoing and by the time the second season has ended, there will be dozens more chapters published. This means at a minimum we would expect to see at least a third and fourth season of Edens Zero.
When is the Edens Zero season 2 Netflix release date?
With J.C. Staff recently confirming that Edens Zero is now in production, we could be several months away from the return of the anime.
It must be noted that the anime will first be broadcast in Japan before eventually arriving on Netflix. The streaming service has stepped up in recent months by releasing weekly episodes of Blue Period and Komi Can’t Communicate, however, there is no guarantee that Edens Zero season 2 will follow suit.
For now, we must wait patiently for the series to return. Hopefully, we’ll see the anime return sometime in 2022.
