Chainsaw Man Season 2 Release Date, Cast, Plot, Trailer & Episodes
Manga series are everyone’s favorite these days and Chainsaw Man Season 2 has become one of the talking points for many. Chainsaw Man, a manga by Tatsuki Fujimoto, was popular among readers even before the anime adaptation. Season one of the anime has ended and has become one of the year’s biggest successes. Although Chainsaw Man has not been officially renewed yet, there is still a lot of source material to cover, and Studio MAPPA will likely capitalize on the success. Here is everything you need to know about the possibility of Chainsaw Man season 2.
About the Series
The manga series Chainsaw Man was created by Tatsuki Fujimoto and published in Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine between December 2018 and December 2020. Its second arc started in Shōnen Jump+ online magazine in July 2022. There are currently 14 tankōbon volumes of the series as of April 2023.
The plot of Chainsaw Man centers around Denji, a poor young man who forms a pact with Pochita, a devil with a canine appearance. This pact results in Denji acquiring the power to turn sections of his body into chainsaws. As the story progresses, Denji becomes a member of the Public Safety Devil Hunters, a government organization that tackles devil-related dangers in Japan.
The next part of the story follows Asa Mitaka, a high school student who makes a deal with Yoru, the War Devil. Yoru compels Asa to track down Chainsaw Man and retrieve the devils taken from her.
Both the print and digital versions of the manga are licensed in English by Viz Media in North America. Additionally, the manga is available on the Manga Plus online platform published by Shueisha. A TV anime series adaptation produced by MAPPA was aired from October to December 2022.
Chainsaw Man, a manga series, had more than 24 million copies in circulation by April 2023, making it one of the best-selling series. In 2021, it won the 66th Shogakukan Manga Award in the shōnen category and the Harvey Awards in the Best Manga category for 2021 and 2022. Critics have praised the series for its storytelling, characters, dark humor, and violent scenes that fit well within the story.
The anime series Chainsaw Man started in October 2022 and had 12 episodes. There is no news about a second season being made, but we expect the show to continue and may return in fall 2023 or 2024. This is because Studio MAPPA has been making a lot of great shows in recent years, and Attack on Titan’s finale is coming out soon.

Chainsaw Man Season 2 Trailer Update
Unfortunately, there is no update for Chainsaw Man season 2 trailer as the anime has not been officially renewed. We will keep you informed of any updates on a possible second season. Stay tuned to get the latest news on the show.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Plot
The Chainsaw Man Season 2 Plot will partially revolve around the initial storyline. The first installment of Chainsaw Man focused on Denji, a young man accompanied by his Chainsaw Devil/dog sidekick, Pochita. After inheriting his father’s debt from the yakuza, Denji takes up the profession of Devil Hunter. Unfortunately, he is defeated by a Zombie Devil, one creature originating from humanity’s fears.
In the story, Denji is brought back to life and merges with Pochita to become Chainsaw Man. He can transform into a living chainsaw by pulling a cord on his head. During the first season, he teams up with Power, Aki, Himeno, and Kobeni to become a Public Safety Devil Hunter. Together, they battle against villains such as the Bat Devil, Ghost Devil, and Katana Man, whom they eventually catch.
In the season finale, the Snake Devil kills Akane, and the team is now searching for the Gun Devil. A mysterious woman is also introduced who asks if one would prefer to be a “country mouse” or a “city mouse.”
To get ahead of the story for the second season of Chainsaw Man, you should read from chapter 39, as it’s where the first season left off. However, it’s uncertain how much of the manga’s first part (Public Safety Saga) the second season will cover. We’ve only covered around 40% of the manga, and fitting it all into a 12-episode season may be too much.
When Chainsaw Man returns for its second season, we can expect it to cover the Bomb Girl arc (chapters 40-52) and the International Assassins arc (chapters 53-70) unless it runs longer. Reze, the woman seen at the end of season 1, will play a major role in the upcoming episodes, and the danger posed by the Gun Devil will remain a central focus. As Division 4 of Public Safety, now merged with a team of Devil Hunters, encounters new allies and enemies, this threat will be strongly felt. No spoilers beyond that.
