Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 July 2023

‘Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2’ Drops July 2023, Reveals First Look At Characters

The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen was a big hit, and excitement for Season 2 will only reach greater heights. As it stands, fans have to wait a little longer to dive back into the world of sorcerers and curses, with the sequel now set for a July 2023 debut.

The news was announced in a character introduction video that gave a first look at the key characters, including a young Satoru Gojo (Yuichi Nakamura/Kaiji Tang) and Suguru Geto (Takahiro Sakurai/Lex Lang). The series will air for two cours (programming blocks that cover roughly three months of episode each), with the first part adapting the “Gojo’s Past (Kaigyoku/Gyokusetsu)” arc, and the second focusing on the “Shibuya Incident” arc.

Building on the portrayal of the pair’s past relationships as best friends and powerful sorcerers in the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 anime movie, season 2 looks to build on this dynamic further, where a meeting with Ieiri Shoko (Aya Endō/Ryan Bartley) leads the trio to encounter Toji Zenin, the infamous assassin known as the Sorcerer Killer.

The “Shibuya Incident” arc, meanwhile, brings the setting back to the present day of Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, and Nobara Kugisaki, and serves as a direct continuation of the events from the first season. In it, the main cast is forced to battle against an alliance of cursed spirits and curse users to defend Gojo from being sealed.

Jujutsu Kaisen is illustrated and written by Gege Akutami. The ongoing work has been serialised in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump since March 2018, and received an anime adaptation by MAPPA in October 2020. The second season is slated for release sometime in 2023, with Viz Media describing the synopsis of its first volume as such:

“Although Yuji Itadori looks like your average teenager, his immense physical strength is something to behold! Every sports club wants him to join, but Itadori would rather hang out with the school outcasts in the Occult Research Club. One day, the club manages to get their hands on a sealed cursed object. Little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…”
