‘Delicious In Dungeon’ Cooks Up Season 2 At Netflix

The first season of fantasy anime Delicious In Dungeon (also known as Dungeon Meshi) concluded with its 24th episode, but those looking for more gastronomical (mis)adventures and dungeon crawling can rest easy. Following a successful run, the hit Netflix series has been confirmed for Season 2, with a brand-new visual and trailer served on the side.


The upcoming season is currently in production, and little else known about its story. However, manga readers should be able to make an accurate estimation of its coverage based on the pacing and episode count of the first season, which ended off with the newly-introduced group of the Canaries, led by Mithrun, heading into the dungeon.

The accompanying teaser features several highlights from Season 1, most of them revolving around the experience of cooking various plants, edibles, and monsters. No release date was announced for Season 2 of Delicious in Dungeon.

Based on the manga by Ryoko Kui, the standout anime directed by Studio Trigger (Promare, Kill la Kill) rose to prominence due to its subversion of RPG tropes, a well-balanced mix of lighthearted moments and hard-hitting drama, and the (unconfirmed) representation of neurodivergent behaviour. Part of its success can also be attributed to renewed and surging interest in the genre, brought on by Baldur’s Gate 3 and various Dungeons & Dragons-related media.

Delicious in Dungeon Season 2

Netflix streams the series worldwide in sub and dub. The synopsis for Delicious in Dungeon reads:

“When young adventurer Laios and his company are attacked and soundly thrashed by a dragon deep in a dungeon, the party loses all its money and provisions…and a member! They’re eager to go back and save her, but there is just one problem: If they set out with no food or coin to speak of, they’re sure to starve on the way! But Laios comes up with a brilliant idea: “Let’s eat the monsters!” Slimes, basilisks, and even dragons…none are safe from the appetites of these dungeon-crawling gourmands!”
