Death Note

A decade after it first aired, fans begin to question whether the cult Anime, Death Note will return with a second season. Don’t worry, we have got all the updates for you. Here is what we are aware of.

This Anime is based on Tsugumi Ohba’s manga series and previously aired in 2006 and 2007. The series sheds light on the story of a high school student who comes across a mysterious book, i.e. the titular Death Note. The book has the ability to take the life of anyone whose name is written in it.

The anime series progresses as Light Yagami, the high school student goes on a killing spree, taking responsibility and murdering those he judges as morally unworthy.

Unfortunately, he is corrupted by the power of the titular Death Note. Quite interestingly, he comes across a detective who has been given the task of investigating the death of those Light has murdered.

The Death Note anime is by far the only adaptation of Tsugumi Ohba’s manga. When this anime series was aired in Japan, at the same time a live-action film was released. Tatsuya Fujiwara of Battle Royale fame as Light Yagami and Kenichi Matsuyama starred in the film. After that, a controversial Netflix Death Note adaptation has also been released, plus a musical.

Is Death Note Season 2 likely to be released?

As far as we know, the Death Note ended with a pretty conclusive ending with the death of Light Yagami. Season 2 isn’t likely, considering the fact that much of the action from the original manga was covered in the 37 episodes of the Death Note.

Furthermore, consider the amount of time that has passed since it first aired. Plus, there has been no official word from Madhouse, the production company regarding a follow-up. So, we presume there isn’t going to be a second season.

You can find other Death Note Sequels

We know how much the Death Note fans are desperate for a second season. For the time being, fans can watch sequels from other adaptations of the Death Note. The Japanese live-action film series that we mentioned earlier, covers the events of the manga.

However, there is also a spin-off movie titled L: Change The World. Also, the second direct sequel called Death Note: Light Up The New World and a prequel miniseries named Death Note: New Generation.
