Netflix’s Global movie collection is impressive. Among its offerings, “Erased” is one of the hidden gems which remain classic. “Erased” is based on a Japanese Manga named “Boku Dake ga Inai Machi” (meaning: The Town Where Only I Am Missing), an excellent work by Manga artist Kei Sanbe.
After Erased on Netflix in 2018 with its 12 episodes, fans were impressed by its storyline and characters. But it has been nearly five years, and fans are eagerly waiting to get something more from this popular Anime show. So, what is next in the pipeline? Is Erased Season 2 happening? When will the second season be released? Find all about Erased Season 2 here.
Erased: a little back story
Before we jump into the Erased season 2, here is a synopsis of Erased season 1. Erased tells the story of a young man Satoru Fujinuma from a small Japanese town Chiba. Satoru has a unique ability called “Revival.”He can travel back in time whenever there is a life-threatening incident happening in front of him.
Satoru travels back 18 years to prevent the killing of his mother Sachiko Fujinuma. He tries to prevent the murder of his friend Airi Katagiri, Kayo Hinazuki. He prevents the murder but is caught. Then he again travels back in time during his elementary school time. Satoru finds that his teacher Mr. Yashiro is the real killer and is forced to return to his own time.
In this new timeline where his mother and friends are alive, Satoru becomes a successful manga artist. He again tracks down Mr. Yashiro and gets mortally in a shuffle. He then slips into a comma.
The show then ends with a scene of ten years in the future. His relatives and friends join together, and Airi is seen reading Satoru’s Manga titled” Erased.”
Will there be a Season 2?
Well, there is a high chance of getting an Erased Season 2. The mangaka Kei Sanbe wrote a spin off story “Boku Dake Ga Inai Machi:Re” in his main volume work. The live-action has followed the story of the manga till now. Some sources indicated an unofficial announcement that the spin-off story would be the plot of Erased season 2. The sources also claimed that the erased season 2 may be released in 2022 or 2023.
But, there has been no official announcement about this till now. Hence, we have to wait for any official confirmation from Netflix in this regard.
Erased 2 possible plot
If the new season or spin-off follows the Manga “Boku Ga Inai Machi: Re.”, it will solve all the loose ends of Erased season 1. It tells that Satoru was in a coma for nearly fifteen years.
