Ever since Prison School season 1 wrapped up in 2015 everyone's been wondering whether we will be getting a second season. Let's explore.
The hit Anime Prison School was able to garner quite a lot of positive reviews after it's first season with a 7.87/10 based on over 256,600 votes. That's some really good news for fans because it means that the possibility of a second season is even higher. But are we getting a second season?
First things, first, the J.C.Staff studio has yet to announce any news regarding a renewal or a cancellation. The status as of now is pending. But the likelihood a second season is very high given the show's overall popularity and the fact that there is still a lot of story to tell. The first season wrapped up in September of 2015 but didn't cover all the material in the manga. And as of April 6, 2018, the 28th chapter was released. So, there is a story a tell but after 4 years one has to wonder if J.C.Staff gave up on the project.
When Tsutomu Mizushima, the director of Prison School and SHIROBAKO was contacted by Naoyuki Uchida, an author of mystery and horror novels, about a second season on Twitter he responded with:
“Thanks for watching continuously since SHIROBAKO! I don’t know about the 2nd season. I want to do it, but … (embarrassed face emoji)”
This conversation occurred in 2015 so a lot can change since then.
Since the show has yet to be renewed there is no release date yet. However, if the show is renewed we can expect a Fall 2020 release. We will keep you informed on any new information about season 2 that comes our way.
