SK8 The Infinity Season 2: Renewed?
The first season of this anime series received a great response from fans as well as critics. The show has every single element that a blockbuster needs.

Studio Bones is presently working on My Hero Academia Season 5, The Case Study of Vanitas, My Hero Academia The Movie, Eureka-Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution, and Super Crooks. So, it is likely that the studio won’t be able to work on new projects for the next few months.
SK8 The Infinity Season 2: What Will Happen?
The first run of this skateboarding anime stunned every single viewer and exceeded their expectations. As a result, now fans are expecting it to get even better in the second season and feature some more thrilling and intense skateboarding action. By the end of the series first season, fans saw Langa defeating Adams and winning the tournament. Langa thinks that Adams forgot the main purpose of skating, so he reminds him of that as well.
Later on, Langa celebrated his victory with all of his friends. On the other hand, Shadow felt really bad after knowing that the florist he likes is already dating someone. The creators teased the sequel in Season 1’s post-credits scene in which Adam accused Takano of the corruption that took place during the tournament. Meanwhile, Tadashi got shocked that Adam didn’t take his name.
Moreover, Tadashi asked Adam about this, and the latter told him that he would now behave like his dog. Meanwhile, Kiriko got another transfer, and she is finally returning to Tokyo.
SK8 The Infinity Season 2 will likely feature Langa and his friends’ travel to Tokyo. They might explore the city and compete with the better skaters there. The skaters in Tokyo are on an entirely different level, and they will give a hard time to the champion. Plus, fans can also expect to see the beginning of Koyomi’s skateboarding journey. According to a rumor, the second season will feature an episode focused on snowboarding as well.
SK8 The Infinity Season 2: Release Date
As we stated above, fans might have to wait a little extra time to see the sequel. This time can increase even more as Bones Studio has another mysterious SK8 anime project now. The demand for this series is huge and is at its peak right now. As a result, it might convince the makers to renew the show as soon as possible. If the green signal comes by the end of this year, fans can expect SK8 The infinity Season 2 to hit the screens in the first quarter of 2023.
