Made In Abyss Season 2 Release Date, Cast, And Plot - What We Know So Far

The hit fantasy anime "Made in Abyss" is getting a second season of exciting exploration of the lost civilization within its massive dark pit. Don't let its cutesy animation style fool you, this series is more than it seems — it's not one to watch with the whole family.

Young orphan girl Riko lives in a town with a giant pit in the midst of it, and the abyss contains just as many wondrous relics as strange creatures, enticing Cave Raiders to delve into its depths for long-lost artifacts. However, few have returned from the deepest levels; among them is Riko's mother, a famous Cave Raider who disappeared during an expedition. But when Riko finds a robot boy, Reg, and receives a message from her mother to meet her at the bottom of the abyss, Riko and Reg begin their descent into a dangerous otherworld.

Since Season 1, the series has gotten one sequel in the form of a feature-length film, titled "Dawn of the Deep Soul." Now, according to ComicBook, it's getting a full-length second season as well as a recently announced video game.

When is the Made in Abyss Season 2 release date?

After "Made in Abyss" Season 2 was first officially announced in 2019, we finally know when it's coming to the small screen. Or, at least we know the year — 2022. There is no confirmed release date yet beyond the ballpark of an entire year, but we do know the title will be "Made in Abyss: The Golden Town of the Relentless Day." In addition to the second season, "Made in Abyss" is also getting a video game adaptation in 2022, titled "Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness," for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via ComicBook).

The manga, written by Akihito Tsukushi, has been published regularly since its debut in 2012. There are currently nine volumes, but the series is ongoing, with a few chapters released on Web Comic Gamma that have yet to be collected into a 10th volume. The anime, which first came out in 2017, has yet to catch up to where the manga is.

Who is in the Made in Abyss Season 2 cast?

There is no information about "Made in Abyss" Season 2's cast just yet. The first season was originally voiced in Japanese, with Miyu Tomita as Riko and Mariya Ise as Reg, but it has since been dubbed in English as well. Outside of "Made in Abyss," Tomita is known for voicing Gabriel in "Gabriel DropOut" and Ise is known for playing Killua Zoldyck in "Hunter x Hunter" and Stocking in "Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt," which arguably ranks as one of the best anime of the last decade.

The English version of Riko is voiced by Brittany Lauda, who's credited with many other voice acting roles, including as Ichigo in "Darling in the Franxx" and as Plug, the depression-curing magical girl in "Charger Girl Ju-den Chan." Alongside her, as the English voice actor for Reg, is Luci Christian, who's had an even more robust voice acting career thus far. Fans might know Christian as Hiro Sohma, the sheep, in "Fruits Basket," or as Yuki Yoshino in the cooking anime "Food Wars!"

It seems likely the main cast will come back for Season 2, as many are also supposed to come back for the upcoming video game.

What is the plot of Made in Abyss Season 2?

Few details about "Made in Abyss" Season 2 have been released thus far, but we do know the events of the second season take place after Season 1 and the feature film, "Dawn of the Deep Soul," according to ComicBook. Presumably, the anime will continue to follow the manga's story, picking up in the next level of the Abyss — the sixth layer. Fans will need to watch the movie to fully understand the story.

Alongside the announcement of the release year, the "Made in Abyss" team released a teaser image on Twitter to get fans hyped for the new season. It features the character Faputa from the manga, who has yet to make her debut in the anime. Any fans looking to get a primer on what will happen in the second season can pick up the manga from Volume 6.

For now, Season 1's 13 episodes are available for streaming on Amazon Prime.
