The first season of Dorohedoro was completely bonkers but extremely addicting, so when will the hit anime series return for season 2 on Netflix?
There are some brilliant anime shows available on Netflix and the genres latest addition, Dorohedoro is no exception.
The show is an adaption of the original Manga series by Q Hayashida and is produced by MAPPA – the animation studio behind The God of High School, the upcoming Jujutsu Kaisen anime and the final season of Attack on Titan.
As The Cinemaholic puts it: “Dorohedoro is absolute chaos but you once you’re hooked on to it, there’s no turning back.” So, after a unique and memorable first impression, fans are wondering if and when the anime will return for season 2.
Will there be a season 2 of Dorohedoro?
- At the time of writing, Dorohedoro has not yet been renewed for a second season on Netflix, but a return is highly likely at some point.
Whilst there may not be an official statement regarding the future of Dorohedoro from Netflix, the show’s director Yuichiro Hayashi has promised that he will produce a second season if the first season does well.
Thankfully, there is also plenty of source material from the original manga series left to adapt, with season 1 only covering eight of the 23 published volumes.
Hopefully, we get an official confirmation on season 2 within the next couple of months, so keep checking back in for the latest updates.
Dorohedoro season 2: Release date
- As season 2 of Dorohedoro has yet to be unconfirmed, an official Netflix release date remains unknown.
Depending on when the series is renewed, there are reports that season 2 could premiere as soon as January 2021.
However, considering the series is yet to be officially renewed and the global coronavirus pandemic continuing to affect production on countless anime, this is likely too early of a release window.
A more realistic prediction would be summer-2021, but again this all depends on if and when production can resume.
Dorohedoro OVA series…
- A six-part Dorohedoro OVA series will premiere on Netflix on Thursday, October 15th, 2020.
Each episode will last approximately five minutes and we expect that the ending to this series will set up the second season, so keep checking in for updates.
