The second season of the popular anime Jujutsu Kaisen is set to begin airing in July 2023. The news was announced during a livestream of Jump Festa 2023 by Junya Enoki, Yuichi Nakamura, and Nobunaga Shimazaki, the voice actors for Satoru Gojo, Yuji Itadori, and Mahito.

The new season will adapt two arcs of the manga: Hidden Inventory Premature Death Arc and Shibuya Incident Arc. It will also feature a larger-scale battle between sorcerers and spirits.

Release Date Leaks

The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen aired in October 2020 and completed its 24-episode run in March 2021. The anime has been dubbed in English and streamed on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix.

The second season will adapt the “Gojo’s Past Arc,” which runs from chapters 65-79 in the manga. The arc will be an extension of the Death Painting Arc, which was finished with the anime, and it will focus on Gojo and Geto’s time at Tokyo Jujutsu High.

It is not clear how long the second season will run for, but we expect it to last at least 20 episodes. Because it will be adapted from two different arcs, it should be longer than the first season.

MAPPA revealed the second season would debut on July 2023 during Jump Festa '23 and confirmed it will air in two cours (quarters of a year). The anime will also feature a new key visual, which was also revealed at the event.

Release Date Confirmed

The new season will release in July 2023 over two "cours" (Japanese broadcast seasons, three months each). It is expected to air for 24 episodes and will continue until the end of the year.

The new season will also introduce several supporting characters, including Ruji Amanai and Toji Fushiguro, who play a key role in the Hidden Inventory arc. It will be interesting to see how they fit in with the rest of the cast.

Final Words

Anime fans have been on the edge of their seats waiting for news on the Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 release date, but now it looks like the date has been leaked. The Twitter account for the show changed its header to a new key visual that revealed the July 6 premiere date for the next season of the popular series.

In addition to the release date leak, a recent interview with Manabu Ohtsuka revealed that Jujutsu Kaisen will not follow the same trails of the first season and that the team is aiming for much higher growth and success when it starts airing.

The second season of the anime will begin airing in two cours (quarters of a year) from July 2023, with the first two arcs covering Gojo's past and a mission to escort a Star Plasma Vessel to Tengen. The new episodes will also feature a lot of action, especially with the encroaching evil of the Cursed Womb triplets Eso, Kechizu and Choso.
