Renewal Status: Renewed
Yes, the anime series has been renewed for season 2. The official Japanese website of the anime announced the news on the 5th of November 2021. The announcement read: "The second production of the TV anime "Seirei Gensouki" has been decided!" Along with this, author Yuri Kitayama thanked all the readers and viewers who have liked and supported their work regularly.
Season 1 aired in the Summer of 2021 with a total of 12 episodes. As of this writing, there is still no information on when 'Seirei Gensouki Spirit Chronicles' Season 2 will release. Director Osamu Yamasaki stated that the second season "will take a little longer to broadcast." Therefore, fans will have to wait for a little longer for the series to return. However, looking at the past release schedule, the first season was announced in November 2020 and was released in July 2021. So, we could have speculated that season 2 would release in July 2022 or October 2022. But that date has now passed. Our next best speculation is early 2024.
'Seirei Gensouki Spirit Chronicles' follows the story of Rio, an orphaned boy living in the slums. When he was seven years old, he found out that he is the reincarnation of Haruto Amakawa, a Japanese university student with a tragic past.
He also finds out that he possesses magical abilities and uses his power to help solve the kidnapping case of a little girl. His good deeds are acknowledged, and as a reward, he enters a prestigious academy for noble children.
The first season of 'Seirei Gensouki Spirit Chronicles' found a stopping point in Volume 5 of the light novel series. Hence, we expect season 2 to start adapting to Volume 6. In this story arc, Rio travels to the trade city of Amande to stock up on supplies and learn more about the hero summonings. He is also tracking down Lucius Orgueille, who raped and then killed Rio's mother, Karasuki Ayame.
