The most-awaited premiere of Yasuke finally took place a few days ago. Now that they’ve binged it all, fans wonder whether there will be Yasuke Season 2 or not. Netflix is clearly targeting the anime market as it continues to produce more original anime series. The streaming giant already has several great anime in its library, and now Yasuke is making this list even more impressive. So, will there be another season of this show? Here are all the latest details.
Yasuke is an original net animation series that follows the life of a historical figure of the same name. LeSean Thomas created this show for Netflix. MAPPA animation studio took command of its animation, whereas LeKeith Stanfield leads its voice cast. The series ran for only six episodes, and all of them were released altogether on April 29, 2021, on the platform. Now, its fans are looking out for the details of its sequel.
Producers Teased The Second Season!
The makers of this ONA series have been hinting that there will be multiple seasons of this show even before its premiere. LeSean Thomas sat with Comicbook for an exclusive interview about this show. During this chat, he said, “I can’t say too much, but the acknowledgment has been great, and it would be excellent to become more than what it is. I’m just really thrilled for the fans digging into this, and then we’ll see. Obviously, it would be good to have a big splash and then keep things going.”
Aside from that, the composer and the executive producer of the anime series also teased Yasuke Season 2 one day after the show’s premiere. He posted a tweet revealing that the makers have big plans for this show. In fact, these six episodes were only supposed to serve as an introduction to this world. He further added that it is only the beginning of this journey, hinting that more seasons are to come.
Yasuke Season 2: Renewal Status!
It hasn’t even been an entire week since the arrival of this original anime series. So, it is obviously too early for Netflix to renew this show. Yet, fans don’t have to worry about its sequel as the show is already a hit and the makers are also positive about its second season. So far, the debut installment received a brilliant response from the audience and the critics alike. Plus, Netflix does not hold back when it comes to their original anime series. Castlevania is a fine example of this. Hence, it is likely that the streaming giant will officially announce Yasuke Season 2 in the upcoming months. Overall, the renewal depends on the impact the show will make on the Netflix audience.
What Will Happen Next?
The debut season did end on a satisfying note, but it still left some room for the plot of another installment. The protagonist witnessed the fall of Oda Nobunaga. He battled the army of Daimyo led by his old rival Mitsuhide, The Dark General. By its end, Saki managed to bring harmony with the help of her powers, but that results in the demise of the Daimyo. Now Yasuke Season 2 will feature on a new mission full of adventures. On the other hand, it is also likely that it will be something from his past as it still haunts him. Fans can also expect to see his past memories play some major role in the sequel.
Yasuke Season 2: Release Date
Netflix release schedule varies from show to show. However, the streaming platform usually focuses on releasing one installment per year. So, if the makers renew the show in the next few months and MAPPA begins to work on it right after the renewal, then Yasuke Season 2 will most likely premiere in the second quarter of 2022.
