Re Zero Season 2: All Updates
There is absolutely zero doubt about it. Re: Zero will be getting a season 2. The news was released about a year ago by White Fox Animations. The show was going to air from April 2020 on various Japanese networks.
Unfortunately, this will not be happening any longer. But, there is still hope! White Fox animations stated that the anime will get a delayed-release. This is due to the Coronavirus outbreak that forced the world to come to an almost standstill. It is also because production for the season has halted as it has been outsourced to Chinese studios.
The wait isn’t unbearably long though, the anime will now be released sometime in July 2020. Following all this, the opening and closing themes’ release has also been delayed.
Re Zero Serie: Cast & Trailer
The second season will have 25 episodes. Some of the cast will be reprising their roles in Season 2. This includes Yusuke Kobayashi, Rie Takahashi, Yumi Uchiyama, and Inori Minase.
