2023 is going to be the year for all anime lovers. Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is likely to hit the screens alongside other hit anime – Demon Slayer and Attack on Titan.
After the success of the Jutjusu Kaisen 0 movie that took the viewers to the prequel territory, this time, you will go back to the present day. Here is everything to know about season 2 and when you can expect it to air.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date
The exact release date for the second season is yet to be announced by the makers. However, it is expected to premiere in the upcoming year. According to speculations, three major release windows can be planned for the release of this celebrated show – Winter 2023 starting January, Spring 2023 starting April, or Fall 2023 starting October.
Many channels and reports have predicted that the show is more likely to release in Fall 2023.
What Did the Jujutsu Kaisen Story include so Far?
So far, the story takes place one year before Yuji’s time. It focuses on Yuta Okkotsu, the protagonist of the story.
In season one, you have not seen Yuta, but the other characters discussed the incidents associated with him in the past. He is brought into Jujutsu High by Satoru Gojo after getting cursed by Rika, his childhood friend. It is no ordinary curse as she is classified as a Special Grade.
Rika has overwhelming strength, and Yuta doesn’t know how to control them or use her. In the meantime, Suguru Geto is out to get Yuta Okkotsu, targeting Rika to add to his collection of all the cursed spirits he controls. The whole plot sets up a good showdown with his best friend but now an enemy, Gojo Satoru.
What Can I Expect from Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2?
The first season of the show ended with the conclusion of the Death Painting Arc. It ran from chapters 55-65 in the manga. If anime continues to adapt the manga release order, the next up will be Gojo’s Past Arc, covering chapters 65-79.
More particularly, it is expected that the season will highlight Gojo’s mission involving himself and Geto escorting a Star Plasma Vessel to Tengen. The second season may also include some patchwork of flashbacks to his past while setting up the major next arc, The Shibuya Incident, chapters 79-136.
The Shibuya incident arc revolves around a plan to seal away Goto, spearheaded by Gojo and his new cursed alliance. So far, this information has been gathered from many resources. The previous season’s ending may also indicate the case.
You can also expect this season to do with the encroaching evil and that of the third Cursed Womb triplet Choso joining hands with the villains, Get and Mahito.
Besides this, Jujutsu High also has a small matter to look after. Teacher Utahime is on the hunt for the duplicitous sorcerer. According to a few reports, it will also form a large portion of the next season.
In the final setup, Yuji, Nobara, Megumi, Maki, and Panda are recommended for promotion to Grade 1 Sorcerers. Gojo invites them to take part in this new mission.
What Characters Will be There in the Second Season?
The second season of the show will be a continuation of the first one. Thus, you can expect the same cast as the previous one. Junya Enoki, the protagonist, Yuji accepts the mission to locate all the pieces of Sukuna with the knowledge that he would have to sacrifice himself to defeat Sukuna towards the end.
Along with them, the stoic sorcerer will also be seen in the show who must team up with Yuji and Nobara, a headstrong young woman who is a force in the battle. Satoru is the strongest sorcerer who teaches at Jujutsu High, where the trio trains.
The Jujutsu Kaisen universe is expanding with the new movie and future episodes. Thus, you can also expect some new characters coming and going throughout the second season. They will be added through new sorcerers, new curses, or regular old humans that Yuji often runs into. With so many characters on board, you can also expect some great voice actors to join the cast of the second season.
As the world of “Jujutsu Kaisen” expands with its new movie and future episodes, it’s highly likely that the show will add in new characters, whether it’s through new Curses, new sorcerers, or regular old humans Yuji runs into. It opens the door for many great voice actors to join the cast in the future.
Do I Have to Watch Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie Before Second Season?
We recommend watching the movie before proceeding with the next season of the installment. However, it is not essential.
Talking about the movie centers on swordsman Yuta, who will play a prominent role in the anime as it wears on. He is also one of the most sought-after characters in the manga series. Watching the movie is a good idea to understand the hype around this character.
The movie also features a post-credits scene setting up future events in the anime. It revolves around Yuta heading back to Japan into the fold of the main series, though it is not confirmed if he will turn up in season two. Thus, the whole adventure is worth seeking out. Watching the movie will make you more excited for the upcoming season. You wouldn’t be able to hold your horses by the end.

If you want to catch up with the previous installments of Jujutsu Kaisen, you can stream all 24 episodes on Crunchyroll. You can stream Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, Demon Slayer season 3, and other hit anime exclusively on the streaming services.
