The early 2000s are full of highly -acclaimed anime releases that, until now, fans still love.

With an outstanding 8.64/10 rating on MyAnimeList from more than 700k votes, 'Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann' is considered one of the best animes ever created.
And just like other masterpieces, we might not see more of it anymore. Let us discuss the possibility of getting 'Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann' Season 2.
The first season of 'Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann' premiered on April 1, 2007. It has a total of 27 episodes, which concluded on September 30, 2007. The anime was a huge success. Sadly, there is still no news about its second season.
You are probably one of the anime fans who have been disappointed with false news about 'Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann' Season 2. There have been numerous rumors in the past about the anime's return. These rumors usually come in April, the same month when the first season of the anime was released more than a decade ago. Sadly, these rumors are just as it is, rumors.
Instead of a second season, the anime creators decided to give us a parallel story anthology series that has 5-minutes long musical shorts. That is not what the audience wanted, and, understandably, most anime fans hated it.
Although some anime get renewed after decades, it seems like it will no longer be the case for 'Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
The anime is still not renewed, so there is no release date for season 2 at all. It seems unlikely for 'Toppa Gurren Lagann' season 2 to happen anymore based on how long it has ended. If there will be changes, we will make sure to update this space for you.

They met a lot of challenges and misfortunes along the way, but they continued to persevere as they unravel the mystery behind these creatures. Their bravery has given humanity new hope.
