The fans have been waiting for an announcement for Erased Season 2. The first season had an excellent response and it has been 4 years since it ended. The anime is an adaptation of Kei Sanbe’s manga titled “Boku Dake ga Inai Machi”. The title for the anime is the same, while ‘Erased’ is the English title. Here’s everything we know about the second season.
Erased Season 2 Story
The story revolves around a manga-writer named Satoru Fujinuma. He has this power of ‘escaping’ whenever he gets into a bad situation. Escaping is essentially time travel because it allows him to go back in time. Satoru refers to his power as “Revival” because it has helped him to do more than just save himself. It has allowed him to save lives. He discovers this power before an accident occurs.
However, when Satoru is accused of murdering a close friend, he is sent back into the past. Although this time he gets sent to 1988, which is 18 years into the past. While being in the past, he realizes that the murder is bound to the kidnapping and murder of one of his classmates that took place in Satoru’s childhood.
This classmate is a peculiar boy named Kayo Hinazuki. The Season 2 story follows Satoru’s quest for the truth about all that happened all those years ago.
Erased Season 2: Interesting Facts About The Series
The series has been adapted not only into an anime series but also a live-action movie and a live-action Netflix series. The anime series was released on January 8, 2016.

Source Material for Erased Season 2
We must note that the biggest problem when it comes to a second season is the source material. Animes are usually directly adapted from their manga counterparts and in the case of Erased, there isn’t anything left.
There were 9 volumes in the manga. The series covered all of it in it and as a result, there isn’t anything left to adapt from. The manga stopped publishing in November 2016. Even though it did end after the show ended, there just isn’t enough to warrant another season.
As there is no release date for Erased Season 2, there isn’t a trailer. However, as we wait for a trailer or a release date, take a look at the season 1 trailer below. Once the trailer does come out, we will update you.
Erased Season 2 Release Date
It seems very unlikely that we will see a second season. As mentioned before, there isn’t any source material left. So, there is no official release date now. However, fans mustn’t lose hope because when it comes to Netflix, anything is possible. You can watch the current season of this classic manga adaptation on Netflix.
