Release Date of The Devil Ring Season 2
The series ended on a cliffhanger. Therefore, fans are eagerly waiting to know what happens ahead of it. As of now, the production team and creators have not revealed anything. One of the main reasons behind the same is the performance of the first season. Even though it managed to earn a fan-following, the series was actually a commercial failure for its creators. It has also received a below-average rating on almost all review and rating websites. Therefore, commercially unsuccessful shows hardly return. The low revenues are holding back the creators from making The Devil Ring Season 2!
However, since the manhua series is still in the run, there’s enough source material. As of now, 122 chapters of the manhua have been published online. The creators can refer this for a follow up season. If the second season gets renewed, Tencent Animation might follow the story of the recent chapters of the Chinese comic. Additionally, there’s also a high demand among fans about The Devil Ring Season 2. So, we’ll have to wait for more news. However, the second season might not arrive till late 2021 or 2022.
We are all ears and will let you know once we learn of more developments.
Tencent Animation has revealed no news about the plot of second season. However, we expect the series will follow the same storyline as the manga comic. There’s enough source material for the show to last two or three seasons. Hope we get that lucky enough! Probably, all the main characters will also return for The Devil Ring Season 2.
I would love to see #Dersha share a moment after a championship. They didn't get to do that in season 2. The Devils need another ring!
