The Owl House Season 2 - What We Know So Far

In 2020, Disney Channel premiered a new animated fantasy series called "The Owl House" created by Dana Terrace, who also worked on the "Ducktales" reboot and "The Mitchells vs the Machines." "The Owl House" is about a young Dominican-American girl named Luz Noceda, voiced by Sarah-Nicole Robles, with an active imagination and a dream of becoming a powerful witch. All this seems impossible, until one day Luz stumbles upon a portal to a place called the Boiling Isles, a magical realm where demons are real and kids train to become witches at a school called Hexside. Luz is taken under the wing of Eda, voiced by Wendie Malick, the self-proclaimed "most powerful witch on the Boiling Isles," who allows Luz to live and train under her at her home, the Owl House.

As Luz explores the Boiling Isles and her connection to magic, she encounters various creatures and other witches living there, including the students named Willow (Tati Gabrielle), Gus (Isaac Ryan Brown), and Amity (Mae Whitman). While Willow and Gus quickly become close friends with Luz, her relationship with Amity is a bit rocky at the start, but soon enough they overcome their differences and grow to possibly be even more than friends. The first season of "The Owl House" premiered on January 10, 2020, and consists of nineteen episodes. The show currently holds a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and luckily for fans of the series, "The Owl House" was renewed for a Season 2 even before the first premiered (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Here's what we know so far about "The Owl House" Season 2.

When will The Owl House Season 2 come out?

Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of news available for the release date of "The Owl House" Season 2 yet. According to a Twitter account run by "The Owl House" wiki — not officially affiliated with Disney in any way — the new season will premiere "mid 2021 on Disney Channel." But take this information with a grain of salt, as the account notes that the source of the date "was from an interview which [they] currently cannot find."

In a recent tweet pinned on Terrace's page, the creator of "The Owl House" said she has "things to share soon," with an accompanying doodle referencing "Season 2" and new characters. Terrace's post also states that the doodles were done last July, half a year after the announcement of the show's renewal, hinting that "The Owl House" Season 2 was already well into development at that point.

Considering all of this, it's very likely that Terrace and Disney will tease or announce the release date in the next couple of months, with new episodes possibly coming before the end of the year.

Who is in the voice cast of The Owl House Season 2?

Along with Luz, Eda, and the others mentioned previously, "The Owl House" is filled with many great characters, brought to life by some familiar and new voices. Luz and Eda live in the Owl House with a couple of roommates, King and Hooty. King is a canine-like creature with a skull as the top half of his head and two horns, who claims to be a former king of demons. Hooty, on the other hand, is a strange demon with an owl face who guards the door of the Owl House. Both King and Hooty are voiced by Alex Hirsch, the creator of "Gravity Falls."

The rest of the supporting cast includes Luz's mother Camila Noceda, voiced by Elizabeth Grullon, Eda's sister Lilith, voiced by Cissy Jones, Emperor Belos of the Boiling Isles, voiced by Matthew Rhys, and Edric and Emira Blight, Amity's twin siblings, voiced by Ryan O'Flanagan and Erica Lindbeck, respectively. As Luz ventures around the Boiling Isles, with many days spent alongside other Hexside students in class or out on quests with Eda, she meets a variety of demons and other witches on her travels. Season 2 of "The Owl House" will expand on the story and the world we know, so expect to hear new voices in the episodes to come.

What will happen in The Owl House's second season?

Season 1 of "The Owl House" follows Luz's quest to learn magic and prove herself as a capable witch in the Boiling Isles. Luz successfully adapts to the magical realm, and soon enough she's training to advance her affinity for light magic. Along the way, Luz meets Willow and Gus and becomes quite close with them, while she continually clashes with Amity, a competitive, standoffish witch at Hexside. But as Luz and Amity get to know each other more, Amity develops a crush on the other girl. By the end of Season 1, it appears that the feeling is mutual, although fans of "The Owl House" will have to tune into Season 2 to see how their relationship continues to develop.

Luz on "The Owl House" is the first openly bisexual lead character on Disney. Terrace revealed more on her Twitter, saying, "when we were greenlit I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could not represent any form of bi or gay relationship." Thankfully, Terrace continued to push to represent a wider array of audiences in the LGBTQ+ community — including herself, as Terrace identifies as bisexual — and said, "luckily my stubbornness paid off and now I am very supported by current Disney leadership." 

Of course, on top of Luz being bisexual, which in itself is a big accomplishment "The Owl House," the show depicts the character in a happy, sweet relationship with a gay character, Amity. The two witches are only the second group of animated queer characters on Disney, after Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland of "Gravity Falls." Season 2 of "The Owl House" will likely continue to explore Luz and Amity's relationship, Luz's skill for magic, as well as her mentor Eda's trials with her curse.
