In July 2015, four years after Prison School manga was released, an anime adaptation began airing on Funimation Channel. It was directed by Tsutomu Mizushimahe, while the script was written by Michiko Yokote. The 12-episode season was licensed by Madman Entertainment in Australia and Anime Limited in the UK.
After the success of Season 1, people began asking when the next batch of episodes could be expected. Since manga series has proved to be highly popular, and the anime was so well-received, it was first speculated that the new season might be delivered by the end of 2016.
Naoyuki Uchida, a well-known author, is among Prison School fans and he has recently posted a tweet asking for the sequel release date. Mizushima tweeted back and confirmed some people’s doubts that they had to postpone the renewal release. He answered: “A second season may not be possible at the moment, even if I want to produce one.”
According to KpopStarz, the reason for a delayed release date is probably the fact that Mizushima is working on one more anime series titled Shirobako. In addition to this anime, he is working on several other projects, as well, so it could be said he has enough on his plate and it is likely that there will be no room for Prison School Season 2 in his busy schedule for quite some time.
As for the second season updates, not much has been revealed. The series will continue to follow Kiyoshi Fujino’s adventures at the boarding school. At some point, he will discover that the school council hides some dark secrets, but we’ll have to wait for Season 2 to be released to find what secrets exactly.
Prison School Season 2 Air Date
As previously mentioned, the upcoming season was first expected to see the light of day last year, but now everything implies it will be delivered sometime in 2018 or even later. Follow us for more details.
