However, the director Takahiko Kyōgoku is positive about the new season. In fact, according to his reaction, Houseki no Kuni Season 2 may arrive at our screens anytime soon. Even after two years, a sequel of the anime is still in high demand. Hence, the release of the second season may turn out to be much more successful than its first one.
