It’s been seven years since the fans last saw Outbreak Company on screen, and now they are getting impatient to see Outbreak Company Season 2. The show has a unique plot and caught the attention of several otakus upon its premiere. It also covers themes like an invasion, discrimination, social norms, and the responsibility of a weeb or otaku, which made it one of its kind. So, will the fans ever see another installment of this brilliant anime? Here are all the latest details.
Outbreak Company is a Japanese fantasy anime series. It adapts its plot from the light novel series of the same title by Ichiro Sakaki. The fans first saw this anime on October 3, 2013. It had a run of twelve episodes, which ended on December 19, 2013. Since then, everyone is waiting to see the following season. It received a good response from everyone, but still, the second season is yet to arrive.
Renewal Status Of The Second Season!
Did the makers renew this show, or did they cancel it? The answer is, the renewal status of the series of still pending. Feel Studios, who produced its debut installment, neither greenlit nor canceled Outbreak Company Season 2. They are still pretty tight-lipped, and the otakus all around the globe are still waiting to hear from them. It has been seven years, so the chances of the renewal are certainly pretty less. But some anime shows got revived even after ten years, just like HxH. So, the fans are still in the hope that it will return sooner or later.
Outbreak Company Season 2: Is There Enough Source Material?
Since the anime series adopt the plot from the LN series of the same name, it is important that the makers have enough volumes of the LN series to adopt as the plot of its second season. The debut of the anime adapted only five volumes of the light novel. Whereas it has a total of 18 volumes. And that means Feel Studios have enough source material to make Outbreak Company Season 2. They can even make two more seasons if they want to with that much source material.
Will The Anime Return?
It has been seven years, and over the course of this time, its popularity has decreased gradually. Some loyal fans are still waiting, but most of them already lose their hopes and joined the fandom of other shows. Plus, Feel Studios is currently busy with their upcoming projects. And any other studio will not take any risk by producing its second season, especially at a time like this. They made the show to promote its LN series. But it also ended in 2017. Therefore now the makers don’t have any purpose of making Outbreak Company Season 2. So, it is very likely that the anime series will not return for its future installments.
