The God Of High School Season 2 - Will It Ever Happen?

With more and more anime being created and imported all the time, it was only a matter of time before platforms known mostly for distributing and streaming anime would also start adapting originals themselves. Crunchyroll released its inaugural slate of original programming in 2020. Among the shows making their debut was "The God of High School," an action-packed martial arts anime based on the manhwa of the same name that was created by Park Yongje and published by Webtoon.

The show follows Jin Mori, a 17-year-old high school student and gifted martial artist from Seoul, South Korea, and his friends as they borrow power from mythical creatures and gods to compete in a tournament sponsored by a shady corporation that is meant to determine the strongest high schooler of them all. The winner of the tournament, which is also known as "The God of High School," shall have their wish granted by the company, no questions asked.

The 13-episode first season, which features animation by MAPPA ("Yuri!!! on Ice," "Attack on Titan"), was well-received when it debuted. Now fans are buzzing and wanting to know if — and when — another season might be released.

Season 2 has yet to be confirmed

Typically, there are a few factors to consider with regard to anime renewals, including the popularity of the show and whether there is remaining source material to be adapted. In this case, there is plenty of source material left to pull from, as the comic upon which "The God of High School" is based remains ongoing. Meanwhile, the anime itself was popular and continues to find new fans.

The 1st season of "The God of High School" premiered on Crunchyroll in the late summer of 2020, airing weekly through September. Unfortunately, there has been no official word from the powers that be regarding a Season 2 renewal for "The God of High School." Thus, it's difficult to say when new episodes might eventually debut. 

As for the cast, it seems likely that actor Tatsumaru Tachibana, who plays protagonist Jin Mori (via My Anime List), would reprise the role in a possible 2nd season, while Han Daewi (Kentarô Kumagai) and Yu Mira (Ayaka Ohashi) — Mori's two friends who also compete in the tournament at the center of the series — could potentially return as well. Other than that, everything else is up in the air, though if you want to check out Season 1 of "The God of High School" in the meantime, the show is currently streaming on Crunchyroll and HBO Max.
