It has been two years since the fans last saw the anime series of Goblin Slayer, and now they are eagerly waiting for Goblin Slayer Season 2. When this show made its debut two years back, it became fans favorite due to its intriguing plot and intense environment. It got a great response from its viewers as well as the critics and got involved in some controversies as well. So will the fans ever see its second season? Keep reading to know.
Goblin Slayer is a Japanese dark anime series. It is an adaptation of the light novel series of the same name by the duo of Kumo Kagyu and Noboru Kannatsuki. The fans first saw this anime on October 7, 2018. The inaugural season of this show consisted of twelve episodes, and the last one aired on December 30 of the same year. Ever since then, the fans have been waiting for the release of the second season.
Goblin Slayer Season 2: Canceled?
The creators of this anime and the White Fox Studios have been pretty tight-lipped regarding the future of this series. Otakus all over the world are eagerly waiting to hear anything officially from them. However, the makers neither renewed nor canceled the anime for its second season. But the failed performance of the movie created a doubt in the mind of the fans regarding the arrival of Goblin Salyer Season 2. So far, the fans have only seen twelve episodes of this intriguing storyline. Therefore they are getting desperate to see more of it.
Will The Fans Ever See Its Second Season?
The chances are great that the dark fantasy anime will return for its second season. The creators made a tremendous amount of money with the source material and debut season of the anime. Currently, the only problem is the busy schedule of the White Fox studios. So it is possible that the makers will order Goblin Slayer Season 2 right after the studio completed its current projects. The inaugural season ended with a cliffhanger and the final moments also confirmed that there would be the following season. So canceling the series will cause a backlash from the fans.
The creators also have an abundant amount of source material for creating the second season. The debut installment only adapted the first two volumes of the LN series. And the movies adapted the plot of the fifth volume. The authors of the manga have released twelve volumes of the LN so far. And with that much source material, the creators can make several seasons of this anime.
Goblin Slayer Season 2: What Will Happen?
The following season of the anime series will most likely adopt the plot from the third and fourth volumes of the light novel series. Therefore the fans will see Goblin Slayer going on a different mission right at the beginning of the second season. The Goblin Slayer-san, aka Orcbolg and Priestess, will go on to save the lives of kidnapped maidens from goblins sneaking in a mine. However, in the second season, the goblins will become more intelligent. They now have different types of equipment rather than simple tools.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 will also present a new adversary known as “Dark Elf.” He is a part of the Evil Sect as well. Dark Elf intends to resurrect the Demon Lord after falling in the battle against Sword Maiden’s party. He’ll join in a peaceful gathering in Frontier town to face Orcbolg in a battle.
Goblin Slayer Season 2: Release Date
It is likely that White Fox will begin the production of the second season from the next year. And if it happens, then the fans will see the following season very soon. Goblin Slayer Season 2 might make its on-screen return in late 2022.
