Will There Ever Be The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2?

The first season was officially announced on February 15, 2021, and it took about eight months for the debut episode to drop.

Talking about The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2, nothing has been announced. It has neither been renewed nor canceled by the creator or the network. Therefore, nothing confirmed can be stated as of now. Since the future of The World’s Finest Assassin is in limbo, it is yet to be discovered whether or not the anime will return to the screens. Ever since the first season wrapped up, the expectations for the potential season 2 have been on a high level.

Coming to the chances of the second installment, the possibility for a sequel is quite prominent. The first season ended on a major cliffhanger that showed the arrival of the Hero, Lord Epona Liannenon. In addition to this, the series is known to have adapted only a small portion of the entire novel series. Therefore, there is ample source material. On top of that, a convincing viewership level and good ratings also favor the possibility of The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2. So, there are a couple of reasons that strengthen the return of The World’s Finest Assassin.

What Could We Expect In The The World’s Finest Assassin Season 2?

In the finale, Lugh and Dia’s father played a significant role. Both of them created a chance for Dia to enter the Tuatha Dé region by enacting a fake death scene of hers. However, before anything could happen or the favored results could appear, the presence of Setanta MacNess hampers their plan. The latter was linked with Gae Bolg, and Lugh realized that he could not withstand him in battle until he used any power or trick. So, to curb Setanta’s movement, he opted for the magnetic tungsten projectile that affected the former accordingly. Lastly, Lugh was informed that Hero Lord Epona Rhiannon was in the kingdom.

As far as the narrative of the second season is concerned, it will majorly focus on the relationship between Lugh and Epona. According to the reports, Lugh is expected to get admitted to an academy located in Alvan. Besides this, the plot is likely to continue as it did in the novel series. Since ample source material is already available, the creators have several references.

Who Will Be In The Next Season?

In the previous installment, the lead voice was provided by Kenji Akabane to Lugh Tuatha De. Dia Viekone and Tarte had the voice of Reina Ueda and Yuki Takada.
