Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is what one of the Japanese Manga series viewers await anxiously. Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen manga, and the anime adaptation released not long afterwards, have been nothing short of a curse-breaking success story. The franchise follows Yuji as he navigates his new role in life: Curse Eliminator. And since its launch in March 2018, it’s become one of the bestselling mangas ever — with the recent prequel movie racking up some impressive records, too. So what does the future hold for Jujutsu Kaisen? Will there be Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 around? Let’s find out.
What We know about Jujutsu Kaisen Manga Series
Gege Akutami’s manga series, Jujutsu Kaisen (呪術廻戦), follows high school student Yuji Itadori as he joins a secret organization of Jujutsu Sorcerers. Their task is to eliminate Ryomen Sukuna, a powerful Curse that has taken possession of Yuji. The series has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump shonen manga magazine since March 2018, and 20 tankobon volumes have been published thus far, with more on the way.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a sequel to Akutami’s Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School. It was serialized in Shueisha’s Jump GIGA from April to July 2017 and published in a tankōbon volume, retroactively titled Jujutsu Kaisen 0, in December 2018.
The manga series Jujutsu Kaisen is authorized for English-language release in North America by Viz Media, who published the first volume in December 2019. The series is written by Ballad Kitaguni and illustrated by Shueisha; it follows Yuuji Itadori, a student cursed with supernatural powers. Two light novels have been released thus far: one in May 2019 and another in January 2020. Most recently, MAPPA aired a 24-episode anime television series adaptation from October 2020 to March 2021 on MBS.
The English dubbed version of the anime premiered in November 2020, with the original soundtrack following in April 2021. Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 is scheduled to premiere in 2023.
As of August 2022, the Jujutsu Kaisen manga had over 70 million copies. This makes it one of the best-selling manga series of all time and includes related novels, digital versions and Jujutsu Kaisen 0.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date Speculation
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will be released in 2023, with a potential release window of Winter 2023 (starting January), Spring 2023 (starting April), or Fall 2023 (starting October).
There’s a higher chance that the second season will come out in the Fall of 2023. Not only was the first series aired in Fall, but animation studio MAPPA is also working on Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Attack on Titan, and Chainsaw Man – set to premiere this October. That’s quite a lot for any studio to handle. Hence, October 2023 would give them sufficient time to work on another season up to their high standards.
We don’t have an official release date yet, but we know that the new season will adapt manga chapters from September 25 onwards. We also have a vague idea of how many episodes we’ll get next year.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Plot and Story Speculation
Jujutsu Kaisen’s first season finale adapted chapters 55-64 from the manga, following the Death Painting Arc. The second season will start with Gojo’s Past Arc, comprising of chapters 65-79 in the manga.
This revolves around Gojo’s past and a mission he was on where Geto escorted a Star Plasma Vessel to Tengen.
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will also adapt to the Shibuya Incident (chapters 79-136). We’re not heading into spoiler territory here, don’t worry. The story of gojo and his new cursed alliance begins with them attempting to seal away Goto during the Shibuya incident.
The upcoming season will have 24-26 episodes in total. If you need a reminder of what happened before, here’s a brief summary: After defeating the Cursed Wombs and Eso and Kechizu, Yuji rejoins forces with Megumi again. However, Sukuna – inhabiting a mouth on one of Yuji’s hands at this point because this is anime, after all–eats one of his fingers which gets him closer to regenerating his full power again.
The new season will most likely explore the evil forces at work and Choso joining Geto and Mahito. Duplicitous sorcerer or not, Jujutsu High’s teacher Utahime is on the hunt. That will–you guessed it–also form a good portion of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2.
In a final season 2 setup, Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara (as well as Maki and Panda) are recommended for a promotion to Grade 1 Sorcerers – and Gojo invites them to participate in a new mission. The season finale sets up Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara for promotion to Grade 1 Sorcerers. Gojo then invites them to join him on a new mission.
