Devilman Crybaby Season 2 has been what fans have been waiting to hear for a couple of years. This Netflix Original was the second anime to be produced by Netflix after Castlevania.
It is based on the manga which is named ‘Devilman’. The show was released on 5 January 2018. As it has been over two years since we’ve heard anything about another season, here’s everything we know that you should know.
Devilman Crybaby Season 2 Storyline
The story revolves around Akira Fudou. He is a weak and passive young boy. The best way to describe him is that he is a pushover. Akira is tender-hearted. In this world, devils have the power to take over human bodies to assume a physical form.
However, if the human is mentally strong enough and has the willpower, they can use the devil’s power as their own. This transformed being with immense willpower is called a Devilman.
When Ryuo Asuka asks Akira to help him track down demons, he can’t say no to his childhood friend. They go together to a party which is full of bloodshed and humans turning their human bodies into demonic ones. During the scuffle, Akira tries to save his friend but ends up turning into a demon himself.
He does this by merging with a demon named Amon. He becomes really strong and kills all the other devils. However, his tender heart still stays with him, hence the name ‘Devilman Crybaby’. Akira decides to put his new-found powers to good use and protect the world from evil and dark forces that surround them.
We can expect that Devilman Crybaby Season 2 will carry on with his adventures while adding new characters to shuffle up the dynamic of the show.
Source Material for the Sequel
The biggest problem right now is that the source material has been used up. There are only 5 volumes of the manga that the series is adapted from. However, it is not the end. As a result of the lack of source material, Netflix has two options.

They can either write an original script for another season or they can focus on giving the series a spin-off instead. Either way, anything is possible at this point and all this is just speculative.
Devilman Crybaby Season 2 Release Date
As the show is very well received, the question of the release date of season 2 for the show has been on the mind of fans for quite some time. Since the reception of the anime was overall really good, the only thing stopping the second season from being greenlit is the source material. Some people even said that this anime would be the flagship anime series for Netflix.
So, it’s only a matter of time before we hear something. We have to keep in mind that there might have been an internal delay as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The thing to remember is to be patient. One of the main reasons for shows to be renewed is their popularity. As Devilman Crybaby’s first season was very popular, we can expect some sort of announcement.
You can watch the current season that is available on Netflix.
