As of now, none of the companies related to the anime’s production have ensured the release of an upcoming season. However, there’s still enough hope for the anime’s return. With its debut in 2018, the series became extremely popular amongst masses in and outside of Japan. Hence, a second outing is currently high in demand.
How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Season 2: Will It Ever Come Out?
Fans are still waiting for a renewal of their favorite anime. Considering that it has only been less than two years, chances for a second season are still pretty high. Unlike most American TV shows, it is normal for Japanese animes to release after a long gap. Some animes like One-Punch Man, Log Horizon, and Re:Zero, have taken years to make a come back. Hence, ‘How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Season 2’ may soon return to screens again.
On the other hand, another season of the anime adaptation may turn out to be economically viable for the producers and LN series creators. The debut installment helped sell more than 1.5 million copies of its light novel series by August 2018. The number increased with every passing episode. Considering its high demand, ‘How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Season 2’ can actually become a rather successful production for the studio and LN creators.
On the contrary, the history of the anime’s production studio says an opposite tale. Ajia-do Animation Works has created quite a few animated shows since 1993. However, none of these animes have ever returned for a second run. Hence, the renewal of ‘How Not To Summon A Demon Lord Season 2’ will be a new action for the studio.
Although, it’s important to consider that this is one of the most successful projects by Ajia-do Animation Works. Thus, there are possibilities that the studio may finally wave a green flag for one of their animes. Whereas, due to its potential, any other studio or platform may pick up the series instead. Both ways, Season 2 has high chances of return in all likelihood. Well, the renewal of the anime also depends on the amount of source material available.
