Tower Of God Season 2 Release Date, Updates

Will there be Tower of God Season 2? When will it release on Crunchyroll? Here’s what we know.

  • The first season of Tower of God anime aired from April 1, 2020, to June 24, 2020.
  • It’s been around two years, and we are yet to get an official update on the second season.

Will the Tower Of God anime return for a second season? Before answering this question let’s dig deep into the Tower of God franchise. Tower of God is a South Korean manhwa webtoon series that debuted in 2010. It received official English translations by Line Webtoon beginning in July 2014. The webtoon series has garnered immense popularity over the years and is still ongoing. Chapter 537 was released on May 22, 2022.

The popular manhwa franchise released a mobile role-playing game in 2013 which also became hugely popular. Apart from the mobile game, Tower of God gets its anime adaptation in 2020 by Telecom Animation Film. The first season of the Tower of God anime comprises 13 episodes aired in Japan from April 1, 2020, to June 24, 2020.

The anime was directed by Takashi Sano, produced by Joseph Chou, and written by Erika Yoshida. Crunchyroll streamed the Japanese broadcast of the series as a co-production under its “Crunchyroll Originals” title. The first season was a huge hit among fans and received an average user rating of 4.7 out of 5 on Crunchyroll.

How anime community and fans responded to the first season?

Tower Of God’s first season was well received by the anime fans for its well-crafted content and visual animation. The critics also loved the series for its precise adaptation of the manhwa. In fact, Tower of God was one of the best animes of 2020.

Season 1 had 13 episodes. It’s been around two years since the first season concluded airing. The fans are now eager to know if there will be a second season of Tower of God.

Will there be Tower of God Season 2?

There hasn’t been any official confirmation from the studio or Crunchyroll whether or not the series would return back for a second season. So let’s not get too excited about it, and let’s not expect anything too hastily.

Let’s try to analyze the possibility of the second season based on the source material and popularity. Tower of God manhwa has been going on for more than 10 years now. There is no shortage of source material as season 1 has just 13 episodes.

Coming to the popularity, Season 1 received mixed reviews. But for viewers, Tower of God was one of the best anime shows of 2020. Season 1 received a superb response and the fans have been demanding more episodes ever since the first season concluded airing.

Also, the first season of anime, along with the manhwa webtoon, has made quite a massive profit, enough for the makers to go ahead with Tower of God season 2.

The first season ended on a cliffhanger. So, it’s highly unlikely that Crunchyroll would cancel the anime after just one season.

Tower of God Season 2 Release Date

Tower of God Season 2 hasn’t been officially renewed yet. So, saying anything about its release date isn’t advisable. Speaking to Anime News Network earlier in 2022, Crunchyroll’s Director of Brand and Marketing Carter Hahnselle, said: “You’ll have to check out the series yourself to see how far we follow Bam up the Tower in Season 1! Can’t share too much more beyond that right now, but again we’re so glad that fans all over the world have been enjoying the show.”

Some unverified reports suggest that the second season is already in production. The animator and director Yoshihiro Takeda claims that Studio Telecom Animation studio will be busy making the Tower Of God sequel.

“The second season of Nagatoro will not be made by Telecom,” tweeted Takeda on November 13, 2021. “[They will be making] a sequel to Tower Of God.”

On the other hand, Twitter user Komi (a reliable anime news reporter) claims that Tower of God Season 2 will in fact be “done by Telecom”.

Since both these tweets came from unofficial sources, we can only wait for the official announcement. As far as the release date is concerned, one can expect a late 2022 release based on the above information.

Tower of God Plot

The plot of the Tower of God revolves around a boy, Twenty-Fifth Bam. Yeah, a boy with this strange name. In Korea, Bam means ‘Night’ though the name gives a spiritual significance to a Messiah. So the plot revolves around this Bam guy, and his life revolves around a Tower at the back of which he lived and his best friend, Rachael.

Though when Rachael entered that Tower, Bam was ravaged. Now, Bam is ready to drive to any limits to see Rachael again, even if he is to die in the attempt. The rest of the story circles around his journey through the tower, and he meets many allies that help him in the mission.

The new season will introduce two new main protagonists named Jue Viole Grace and Ja Wangnan in addition to revealing what’s become of Bam, Khun, Rak Wraithraiser, and everyone’s best-hated girl Rachael.

News about the Tower of God manhwa writer

The writer of manhwa S.I.U aka Lee Jong Hui was on a break as he was suffering from wrist and back pain. The primary reason for it is that he kept doing his work regularly, taking no rest. He also had some mental health concerns. This news was a setback for the fans. However, after an extended break, S.I.U. – AKA Lee Jong Hui resumed the series as a writer in Nov 2020.

How many episodes will season 2 comprise?

Another important question about the Tower of God anime is how many episodes would it include. The first season of the anime had 13 episodes that started airing on April 1, 2020 and were aired till June 24, 2020.

There is enough source material left, enough to make not even six more seasons of Tower of God. As per our prediction, the second season would also consist of around 12 to 15 episodes, and if also replicates the same success, then the studio would go ahead with more seasons.
