'High School Of The Dead' Season 2 Release Date

High School Of The Dead

Fans of the anime series might have to sit for quite a while with their fingers crossed because even if a second season happens, it will take quite a while. It has been speculated that production studio Madhouse may do a second season of High School of the Dead to pay their respect to the passed writer Daisuke Satō. But no news of the renewal for a second season has been heard. 

Are there any chances for the show to come back?


The second season of the anime series was speculated to be produced by US-based anime networks as the original creators did not want to proceed any further with the series. Japan suffered from severe natural disasters such as a Tsunami and an Earthquake and it was not suitable to make an anime series full of deaths and tragedies. There were multiple international agencies that hold the rights of the first season and let's hope that they will obtain the right to start the second season of the anime series, given its huge follower basis. 

'High School Of The Dead' Summary

The story revolves around Takashi Komuro who studies at the Fujimi High School and gets separated from his childhood friend Rei Miyamoto. They made a promise to each other to get married, but she ends up breaking that promise due to Takashi's behavior. Later on, when he goes outside to mope about it, he witnesses a zombie attacking his school teacher in front of the school. He goes on to warn Rei and Hisashi about the incident and they manage to escape together as the news of zombie attacks starts to spread in the school. Due to a number of unfavorable situations, Takashi is forced to kill Hisashi who gets bitten by Mr. Wakisaka. This makes Rei upset as her boyfriend is killed in the incident. The official synopsis of the series reads, "Highschool of the Dead is set in present-day Japan, beginning as the world is struck by a deadly pandemic that turns humans into zombies, euphemistically referred to by the main characters as "Them" (奴ら Yatsu-ra). The story follows a group of high school students and the school's nurse as they deal with a worldwide catastrophic event known as the "Outbreak". As the cast tries to survive the zombie apocalypse, they must also face the additional threats of societal collapse, in the form of dangerous fellow survivors, and the possible decay of their own moral codes. Starting from the high school, the students escape into town where they must deal with a corrupt teacher and his students. They check their homes for survivors and pick up a little girl and a dog. Later, they hold up at a mall, travel through a police station, and eventually make their way to an elementary school that is supposedly a safe zone."
