Well, as per the looks, the return of this fantasy anime series is highly likely. Here’s everything you need to know.
Houseki no Kuni, also known as Land Of The Lustrous debuted at the screens back in October 2017, only to become one of the best creations by the studio.

Land Of The Lustrous Season 2: Renewed Or Canceled?
For the last few years, fans have been asking about the return of their favorite anime. Hence, it’s high time to seek some answers from its creators. Studio Orange and series director Takahiko Kyōgoku have been resisting questions about the renewal of Houseki no Kuni Season 2. While other shows produced by the studio have already got their sequel, why is Land Of The Lustrous stalled?
One of the main reasons behind the delay is the lack of source material. The Houseki no Kuni manga series is still in the run and has been published in ten volumes, as of today. The most recent one, Volume 10, was launched in August 2019. As per the schedule, the eleventh volume must’ve come around by now. However, it’s probably delayed because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The first season of the anime adapted the first five volumes of the Land Of The Lustrous manga. Hence, Houseki no Kuni Season 2, is expected to continue the plot from Chapter 37 of Volume 5 through the next five volumes. Fortunately, with the release of Volume 10, Studio Orange finally has enough content to create a sequel.
Besides, looking at the popularity of the anime, the studio wouldn’t want to miss out on Season 2’s profits. The critically acclaimed show doubled the sales of its manga volumes. After all these years, Houseki no Kuni Season 2 can do the same for the upcoming volumes of the manga. In fact, as per previous reports, the series director Takahiko Kyōgoku is positive about the new season. Hence, an official renewal may arrive anytime soon.
