Goblin Slayer Season 2 Storyline
The show deals with the adventures of the Goblin Slayer and his party of companions. The show starts with the young priestess and a group of adventurers planning to raid a goblin cave. Their plan goes awry as they all die except for the priestess. The priestess gets saved by the Goblin Slayer, who we come to know is obsessed with killing Goblins and will go to any length to kill one. His obsession is a result of a group of goblins raiding his childhood village and killing his family.
The Priestess and The Goblin Slayer later encounter High Elf Archer, Dwarf Shaman, Lizard Priest, and The Witch. They reveal that their races have united with the humans to fight the goblin. At the end of the show, a group of goblins led by The Goblin Lord attack the form, this ends with the Goblin Slayer killing the Lord. In the end, Priestess says that the Goblin Slayer is somewhere out there still fighting, this likely opens up a possibility of a sequel.
The Official Announcement
As of writing, there is no official announcement yet about the second season coming out. But with the manga content and light novel content available to them, they are really not lacking source materials to adapt.
There is also a movie about Goblin Slayer called Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown, proving the profitability of the show. Also, the ending where the priestess says that The Goblin Slayer is still out there fighting does raise hopes for fans.
So there is a chance, that we might be hearing about the new season in a few months.
The cast has not been announced. But one thing we can say for sure is that Yuichiro Umehara will be back as The Goblin Slayer. Goblin Slayer’s appearance looks menacing and this is by design. As he will use anything that could give him an edge against goblins. Like when he first started his quest against goblins, the Horns on his helmet weren’t always broken as in Goblin Slayer’s first-ever mission his helmet had horns.
However, he had to beak the horns on his helmet to use them as weapons to kill GoblinsOther cast members can be a little hard to predict, considering that the show can take any direction, it might also showcase The Goblin Slayer going off to far-away lands with an entirely new list of cast.
So, all the other characters like Yui Ogura as Priestess, Nao Toyama as High Elf Archer, Yuichi Nakamura as Dwarf Shaman, Tomokazu Sugita as Lizard Priest, Yoko Hikasa as the Witch, Yuka Iguchi as the CowGirl, Maaya Uchida as the Guild Girl, all of them have a 50-50 chance of coming back.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release Date
As already mentioned, there is no announcement of the Goblin Slayer Season 2 release date. So what can we say about the release date is that it should be coming around mid-2022. Because of the virus, the studio is unlikely to announce any new project.
