In 2018, the Goblin Slayer anime showed how brutal and unforgiving its dark fantasy world can be. Adapted from the light novel of Kumo Kagyu, the story is about a man literally named “Goblin Slayer,” whose sole purpose is to rid the world of all goblins. Although the premise may seem simple, Goblin Slayer had more to offer with its action, characters, and story.

Initially, Goblin Slayer’s light novel was already well-received, earning fifth place in its category in the “This Light Novel Is Amazing” guidebook. With the first season doing a great job adapting the source material, fans look forward to watching its second season. If you’re one of those fans, here’s what you should know about Goblin Slayer: Season 2.


When Is Goblin Slayer: Season 2 Coming Out?

It’s confirmed that Goblin Slayer: Season 2 will officially be released in 2023, but the exact release date is unclear. The official trailer only announced a 2023 release window for Season 2, yet it didn’t specify the release date. The second season could potentially follow its predecessor’s footsteps with a fall release, but it can still release much earlier.

Season 2 was confirmed to be in production in 2021, despite some controversy with its previous season. Many people criticized it for its graphic depiction of sexual assault in its first episode, which led to streaming services issuing apologies and content warnings. Despite this, Goblin Slayer was renewed and will finally return after all these years.


What Is Goblin Slayer: Season 2 About?

Season 1 covered Volume 1 of the light novel, so the next season will probably adapt Volume 2. Here, we’ll see Goblin Slayer accept another quest from Sword Maiden to investigate goblin reports in a water town. However, the more they explore the city, the more they realize that the trouble is far greater than they could imagine.

The new season will feature a lot of goblin slaying, but it’ll also further explore the characters’ backstories. You can also expect new powerful opponents and more difficult predicaments, which will test Goblin Slayer and his companions’ abilities.


Which Studio Is Making Goblin Slayer: Season 2?

Instead of the previous studio, White Fox, Liden Films will take over Goblin Slayer: Season 2. You may know them as the production house of other anime, such as Berserk and Tokyo Revengers. Still, most of the original production team will return, but not without a few changes in staff positions.

Misato Takada will take over as director, while the previous one, Takaharu Ozaki, will be promoted to chief director. Hideyuki Kurata is also returning to handle the series composition, along with Kenichiro Suehiro, who’s in charge of music composition. There are also no changes in voice actors for Goblin Slayer: Season 2.


Where Will Goblin Slayer: Season 2 Be Aired?

If it’s similar to the previous season, Goblin Slayer: Season 2 will be available on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu. These are still subject to change since it hasn’t been officially confirmed where it’ll air. While waiting, you can watch the first season on the streaming services mentioned. Meanwhile, the movie Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown is also available on Amazon Prime Video.
