We are keeping our ears and eyes open on Death Parade Season 2 and we will update as soon as we hear something.
Death Parade Season 2 Release Date
Five years ago Death Parade introduced us to the games of the afterlife. The series became an unexpected hit among fans when it was released in 2015. Madhouse is under extreme pressure to come up with season two. Despite the studio being known for creating one season anime series, it had to give in to the requests of the fans and promise that the famous series will make a comeback. The makers are keeping mum.
After announcing a season 2 in 2016, there has been no recent development and the release date remains unknown. Albeit, Madhouse hasn’t announced that the series is canceled. On a positive note, we can hope and pray that the show will be officially announced soon. There are many theories doing rounds on the reason why the show has not made a comeback yet. Some say that the makers are short of content. Unlike other anime series, Death Parade is not adapted from a Manga. Madhouse is popular for creating popular series that include Death Note, One Punch Man, Hunter x Hunter, and more. Since an actual source material is not available, the writers will have to draft a completely new storyline for Death Parade Season 2 that coincides with season one’s ending.
To guess the plot of Death Parade Season 2, let’s go back and look at what happened in the previous season. Death Parade introduces us to the complex world of the afterlife, where people are sent to one of many mysterious bars after they die. Dead people are forced to participate in Death games to decide whether they will be reincarnated or sent to the void.
"Each and every life spins its own, totally separate tale, yet they become intricately entwined in each other." #DeathParade
