When will The Promised Neverland season 2 come to Netflix? Anime lovers are waiting to watch the second season of the dark fantasy series.
The Promised Neverland is a smash-hit anime series that managed to receive critical acclaim with its brilliant story. The anime invites viewers on a journey through the escape of three kids from a horrible fate. The series depicts a world where humans and demons agree to live together with one condition: human children must be offered to demons as food.
The unique and scary plot of the anime interested lots of viewers around the world. So naturally, fans are waiting to find out what happened to the amazing trio during their escape from Plant Four. Though we should note that the second season disappointed a huge part of the audience. Although millions of anime fans adored the first season, they were not content with the new episodes. It scored below 30% on various review websites and failed to captivate its fanbase. Yet again, you probably want to see what happens to the kids of Plant Four during their escape. You might enjoy the second season as well. So let’s dive in and inform you about the release date of The Promised Neverland season 2 on Netflix.
The Promised Neverland Season 2 Release Date on Netflix
The first season of The Promised Neverland landed on the platform back in September 2020. The time gap between the show’s original run and Netflix premiere date is about 20 months. As the streaming giant does not prefer to simulcast animes and many other series, we will have to wait for some time.
There are various reasons why Netflix does not simulcast series. Anime fans have a name for this situation and they call it Netflix Jail. An anime waiting to land on the service after its initial run in Japan is in Netflix Jail, meaning that the fans have to wait a really long time to watch the series on the service. It seems like season 2 of this anime series will also get the same treatment.
We should also note that the leading streamer has not acquired the license for the second season yet. So Netflix should have the license first to make the eleven episodes plus the special episode available in its library.
The Promised Neverland Manga and Anime
The dark fantasy anime is written by Kaiu Shirai who also has one-shot publications like Ashley Goeth no Yukue, Poppy’s Wish, Spirit Photographer Saburo Kono, and DC3.
The episodes in the first seasons are adaptations of the 37 chapters of the manga. And the second season follows the events throughout chapters 37-181. So it is safe to say that that the second installment of the anime cuts some parts out.
There are also major changes in the anime adaptation. A couple of plots regarding Isabella‘s fate and the Demon Queen are different in the anime. So if you read the manga before, know that the anime takes a different path on most occasions.
Is there a trailer for The Promised Land season 2?
There is a trailer video for the second season of the anime also known as Yakusoku no Neverland. You can watch the video below.
