Spy X Family Season 2 - What We Know So Far

Family can come from surprising places, something evidenced by the anime "Spy x Family." The adaptation of Tatsuya Endo's manga follows three unique figures destined to be together. Loid Forger, aka Agent Twilight, takes on a mission that requires a few new assets — namely a wife and child to pull off his new assignment as a spy. His search takes him to an orphan, Anya, whose telepathic powers have made her an outsider. The unlikely pairing then finds a wife and mother in Yor, an assassin who uses an unassuming manner to her advantage. Fans, as well as critics, have responded to the material's refreshing combination of action and comedy.

The team at WIT Studios was just as surprised to see that level of response. "The reaction of the Japanese voice cast from the overseas fans and their reaction to their favorite scenes were so positive and excited – plus all of the cosplayers," WIT Studios animation producer Kazue Hayashi said during an interview with The Illuminerdi. "...now I am starting to see the global reach."

The 1st season grew an already impressive fanbase for the manga; episodes aired in Japan as well as internationally throughout 2022. On-demand options give viewers even more ways to catch up on the 25-episode season. Audiences clamoring for another adventure with the family Forger are getting their wish, adding a special event that expands their story into a new format.

Here's what we know about Spy x Family Season 2.

When will Spy x Family Season 2 be released?

Little is known about the Season 2 release date for "Spy x Family," only that it is set for some time in 2023. Attendees at Jump Festa 2023 were given the first tease of a 2nd season. It was also revealed that the impressive reaction to "Spy x Family" Season 1 inspired Tatsuya Endo to bring his creation to the big screen (via Crunchyroll).

The first film to feature Twilight, Anya, and Yor is also set to debut in 2023. Not much is known about the upcoming film's plot, but a commemorative poster teased what viewers can expect. Another adventure awaits as Twilight pilots a plane with his family along for the ride; its design harkens back to the manga covers with the bold red plane against a green background. Endo created the story and will be supervising the entire production. He's also set to develop character designs for new additions to the narrative.

Who stars in Spy x Family Season 2?

No announcements have been made as to casting for "Spy x Family" Season 2. As of 2022, it's assumed the 2nd season will feature the core actors who made up the original cast. One of the most recognizable voices is that of Hayami Saori. The actress, who voices Yor, can be heard on a host of popular anime shows. She also voiced characters on "Boruto: Naruto Next Generations," "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba," "One Piece," and "Kotaro Lives Alone." 

Saori will reunite with "My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU" co-star Takuya Eguchi for "Spy x Family." The actor brings his own impressive set of credits in addition to his contribution as Twilight. He can be heard on numerous series including "Sword Art Online," "Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin – Advent of the Red Comet," and "That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime" (via EpicStream).

Viewers watching English dubs have another set of voice talent to bring the story to life. If Season 1's full cast stays in place, the original dub actors are top-tier counterparts to the Japanese-language cast. Loid/Twilight actor Alex Organ's voice work covers in-demand franchises like "My Hero Academia," and "Black Clover." "Attack on Titan" actress Natalie Van Sistine voices the assassin Lor.

Megan Shipman, who portrays Anya, shows the enthusiasm that goes into this project's dub. The actress revealed that her favorite Season 1 moment saw Anya hit Damian. "...that was so funny and she has the most little kid answer, you know "I just put my hand out and he ran into it". No honey, no he didn't, you hit him," Shipman told 8Bit/Digi.

What is the plot of Spy x Family Season 2?

Season 2 remains a mystery for anime fans, those involved with the series are tight-lipped about what to expect from the upcoming season. A provided synopsis could easily be summarizing the project; it talks about Twilight's mission and the family he creates in the process. The series has already covered Volumes 1 through 3 from the published manga. In that case, Season 2 of the TV series most likely begins with Vol. 4 of the manga and will cover several volumes before reaching the season finale.

It's possible the announced film ties into the upcoming story. Another possibility sees the cinematic outing taking the route of "One Piece" by presenting something that stands alone in terms of franchise canon. Some of the film's impact will undoubtedly coincide with release dates. Something important to the overall arc would be difficult to release on a staggered schedule, while any entry with an outside storyline could easily see an international release over time.
