Jump Festa 2023 revealed insights about the much-anticipated second season of Jujutsu Kaisen, thrilling fans everywhere.
December has been filled with exciting news, and Jump Festa 2023 made sure to carry on the trend. Following much anticipation, the voice actors Junya Enoki (Yuji Itadori), Yuichi Nakamura (Satoru Gojo), and Nobunaga Shimazaki (Mahito) have revealed news of Jujutsu Kaisen’s highly-anticipated second season. We now know that we can look forward to a release date window in the near future.
The Jujutsu Kaisen anime had an unprecedented level of success during its first season, just like the manga. From October 2020 to March 2021, viewers watched Yuji Itadori’s exciting journey unfold on their screens. Fans were also treated to a special prequel: the film adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 premiered in Japan for Christmas 2021 and worldwide in March 2022 becoming one of the most successful anime box office performances of all time.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date
While the exact date has yet to be disclosed, we can confirm that Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is due for a July 2023 premiere. This season will run over six months until the end of 2023 and cover two entire Arcs from the manga: The Hidden Inventory Premature Death Arc and The Shibuya Incident Arc.
The 1-minute teaser delved further into Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto’s relationship as students, a topic that was already explored in Jujutsu Kaisen 0. Furthermore, all the beloved main characters will return with MAPPA once again at the helm of animation production — just as they did for Jujutsu Kaisen’s first 24-episode season.

Jujutsu Kaisen Manga
The Jujutsu Kaisen manga written by Genge Akutami commenced in 2018, and it is still going strong. During the Jump Festa event, Nobunaga Shimazaki revealed a letter composed by Akutami that hinted something would be coming to an end in 2021. This could either signify the finale of an arc of the manga or possibly even its conclusion itself. Or perhaps something else entirely?
The series, released by Shueisha and Viz Media in English has already achieved monumental success with over 70 million copies sold. For those interested in the anime adaptation, both the movie and 1st season are streaming on Crunchyroll. Plus they will be simulcasting the upcoming season.
What Happens in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2?
In September, the much-anticipated second season of Jujutsu Kaisen was announced to be airing across two “cours” (Japanese broadcast seasons, three months each). This anime series will cover Satoru Gojo’s time as a sophomore at Tokyo Jujutsu High in the Gojo’s Past arc and then move on to pick up right after where Season 1 left off with the Shibuya Incident arc. Yuta Okkotsu is all set to make his first appearance in this animated series following his theatrical introduction in the 2021 movie ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0’.

Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Creators
MAPPA is set to make a comeback with the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen. Unfortunately, it remains unknown if Sunghoo Park, who helmed ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 1’ and its prequel ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0’, will again be directing this upcoming venture.
Where to Stream Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2?
As of now, it remains unclear which streaming service will be granted the North American rights to broadcast Jujutsu Kaisen season 2. Nonetheless, with Crunchyroll having simulcasted the series before and Funimation’s merger last year, it seems probable that either Crunchyroll will be airing the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen or that the show could at least appear on its platform in some form down the line.
