We’ve all been waiting for way too long for The Devil Is A Part-Timer Season 2 to be back at the screens, and it’s getting painful with every passing day.

Well, it’s finally time to know what’s actually happening. Will Hataraku Maō-sama! Season 2 ever release? Here’s everything to know.
It’s been a while since ASCII Media Works published another volume of the light novel series. The last one came out earlier this year in February 2019 in the form of a short story compilation.

Hence, we hope that they soon release another volume and continue the story further.
