Charlotte Season 2: Renewal Status And Release Date

Charlotte Season 2: Renewal Status And Release Date

The first season of Charlotte was really well-received among the fans and the critics alike. Now, everyone is eagerly waiting for any information regarding the second season.

'Charlotte' or 'Shārotto' is a 2015 Japanese Anime Television series which was produced by P.A.Work and Aniplex. The show is directed by Yoshiyuki Asai and the first season of the anime had 13 episodes that aired in Japan from July 5 and September 27, 2015. After the release of the first season, an original video animation was produced by the production house in March 2016. The original idea of the show was from Jun Maeda and he has also written the screenplay and composed some soundtracks for the series. The concept for 'Charlotte' has been put out by Maeda a long time back and he was approached in 2012 to work on another anime series after he was done with 'Angel Beats!' After 'Charlotte' season 1 aired, it was praised far and wide for its content and evocative moments. But, the show also faced some criticism for the pace it took and even though the comic elements of the show have been called dumb and corny sometimes, the show has been mainly praised, with one reviewer calling the show as a 'palate cleanser'. Here is everything you need to know about Season 2 of Charlotte. 

When will the second season of Charlotte premiere?


The first season of 'Charlotte' aired in July 2015 and the finale aired on September 2015. It had a total of 13 episodes and each episode had an average runtime of 25 minutes. Looking at the finale episode, it almost seemed like the content of an entire season was crammed up into one episode and it would've been very well possible to make an entirely new season out of it. But, that is not what the showrunners wanted and it looks like they planned to end the show in Season 1. Apart from that, since 'Charlotte' is an original anime show, there is no original content to back up the show. Considering that there is still a chance that the showrunners will go for a second season, it will most likely involve completely new characters and the storyline will most likely be a spin-off one. 

Is there a trailer for the second season yet?

No, there is no trailer available for the second season of the show yet since it has not been renewed for a second season. 

What is the main plot of the show?


'Charlotte' is an original anime that does not follow any existing manga. The plot of the story takes place in an alternate reality where a short-period comet named Charlotte passed by Earth every 75 years. When it passes by Earth, it tends to spray some dust that results in pre-adolescents who manifest some superhuman abilities once they reach puberty. The main story focuses on the protagonist  Yuu Otosaka who has the ability to possess someone else's body for five seconds. While in the beginning, he hopes to use this ability in order to sail through high school smoothly, he ends up being exposed by Nao Tomori who has the ability to make herself invisible to her specific target. After being exposed, Yuu is forced to take a transfer to Hoshinoumi Academy and becomes a part of the student council. Jōjirō Takajō is a part of the student council and he has the ability to move at superhuman speed. The primary goal of the student council is to ensure that the ones who possess the ability are safe and the student council warns them about the dangers of using their powers out in the open. The student council is led by a girl named Yusa Nishimori who has the power to channel the spirits of the dead through a medium. Yusa's elder sister Misa, who is dead often uses this ability to possess her body and that helps her to use her ability, pyrokinesis.
