Despite the manga and anime’s focus on curses by Gege Akutami, the events in Jujutsu Kaisen are anything from foreboding.
Due in large part to the success of the most recent segment, the prequel film Jujutsu Kaisen 0, the manga that inspired this series has quickly moved to the rankings of best-sellers since its premiere in March of 2018.
The question is, what’s next for Yuji and the company? Digital Spy has the scoop on what to anticipate from Jujutsu Kaisen’s forthcoming second season.
How Soon Will The First Episode Air?
On July 6, 2023, Jujutsu Kaisen will return for its second season. As seen above, the release date and the extended teaser video were both revealed in March via the official Jujutsu Kaisen Twitter account.
Many rumors about the next season’s format have led up to this moment. On September 17, 2022, TOHO Productions will celebrate its first decade in business.
It was revealed that the second season would be broken up into two parts, or cours, with each portion adapting a separate plot arc from the manga. This trend toward staggered season releases can also be seen in anime, with shows like SPY x FAMILY.
These two arcs have been teased with two photos that hint at what may happen. Our modern heroes Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, and Nobara Kugisaki appear in “The Shibuya Incident,” while “Jutsu High” features Gojo Satoru, Geto Suguru, and Shoko Ieiri in their Jutsu High uniforms (hinting to a prequel arc).
Season 2 Of Jujutsu Kaisen’s Storyline
Season 1 of Jujutsu Kaisen concluded after the manga’s Blood Painting Arc (chapters 55-64) took place. It was announced that episodes 65–79, together referred to as the “Gojo’s Past Arc,” will serve as the season two anime adaptation’s starting point.
The manga’s Shibuya Incident arc will take us back to Jujutsu High, as evidenced by the trailers and teaser images released so far.
Without giving too much away, we may expect that several important characters will mature throughout season two, and that the true identity of the school’s mole will be revealed.
As an added bonus, the film’s end credits scene gives the sense that Yuta is on his way, which is terrific in principle but, well, let’s just say it doesn’t indicate well for Yuji.
