Hataraku Maou Sama season 2 to be released in 2021, but fans are wondering When exactly is it going to be released ?, Let’s find out
The anime announcement took place at Kadokawa Light Novel Expo 2020, which was delayed from October to March 6 and 7, 2021.
The amount of Episodes the season 2 of The devil is a part timer hasn’t been announced to the public just yet, but in the best possibility it could be multiple of cours. Considering how much source material is available for the anime sequel it’s very much possible there could be multiple cours. Hopefully, the production schedule will build in breaks to keep the quality high. A “split-cour” is where a single anime season takes a multi-month break before resuming TV broadcasting.
The second season will feature a returning Japanese voice cast:
- Ryota Ohsaka as Sadao Maou/Demon King Satan
- Hikasa as Emi Yusa/Heroine Emilia
- Nao Touyama as Chiho Sasaki
- Yuki Ono as Shirou Ashiya/Demon General Alciel
- Hiro Shimono as Hanzou Urushihara/Demon General Lucifer
- Kanae Itou as Suzuno Kamazuki
As of the last update, Kadokawa, Studio White Fox or any other company related to the production of the anime has not yet officially confirmed The Devil is a Part-Timer Season 2 release date. The production of a Hataraku Maou-sama! Season 2 sequel was announced in early March 2021 and we are still waiting in eager expectation for the release.
Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information.
In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when The Devil Part-Timer Season 2 premiere date will occur in the future. It’s not confirmed yet but it’s possible that a studio other than White Fox is handling the second season.
Since the second season was announced in March 2021 it’s still possible The Devil is a Part-Timer! Season 2 release date will be in Fall 2021. Otherwise, the release will be in 2022.
Update: The official Twitter account for Hataraku Maou-sama! aka The Devil is a Part-Timer! announced that the show will return for season 2. It will start airing from July 2022. Eight years passed since the first season ended in 2013, and unsurprisingly there will be a few changes to the staff. However, the cast remains the same.
Season 2 of The Devil is a Part-Timer will cover events from Volume 3. This is clear from Alas Ramus’s presence on the visual. In the light novels, Alas Ramus is, in fairly simple terms, Sadao and Emi’s adopted daughter. Hina Kino will voice her in the anime. Prior roles Kino played include Hanako from Asobi Asobase and Emu Otori from Project Sekai.
After season 2 was announced in March 2021, there was practically no news of its development until now.
Though White Fox handled the animation for the first season of The Devil is a Part-Timer!, Studio 3Hz will take over for season 2. Daisuke Chikushi (Isekai Cheat Magician) is the director, Yuuta Iino (22/7) is the character designer, and Ryousuke Nakanishi (Mekakucity Actors) is the composer. The studio is different, but several members of the key staff (Nakanishi and series composer Masahiro Yokotani) worked on the first season.
The Devil is a Part-Timer! follows the story of Demon King Satan, who flees to modern Japan with Demon General Alsiel after they are defeated by Hero Emilia. He has to try and fit in as a normal fast food restaurant worker in order to replenish his magic, but he starts to seriously enjoy life as the normal “Sadao Maou.”
Season 2 of Hataraku Maou-sama! or The Devil is a Part-Timer! will start airing from July 2022.
