Daisuke and Shoji Satō’s Highschool of the Dead got its first anime adaptation back in 2011. Fans absolutely loved the series, and even to this day, it is one of the most popular Television anime series. Unfortunately, like many other popular anime out there, Highschool of the Dead didn’t really get a second season.
Highschool of the Dead Season 2: Will It Happen?
We’re all waiting for the show to return, so will it ever happen? Well, unlike many other shows, Highschool of the Dead is facing a lot of problems. So for this series, it is a lot more complicated. When the series came out about seven years ago, it was an instant hit. Everyone loved it, and ever since then, a release date has been speculated. It could’ve come out at any time in the past few years, but didn’t. So what exactly is holding the series back?
Most of the problems that the series has faced are related to production. The lack of staff has always been a problem, and Madhouse has a habit of doing great series and then never dropping a second season. Further issues escalated when Daisuke Satō passed away back in 2017. This left the series incomplete and is another reason why there probably won’t be a second season for a while.
However, it’s not like the second season of the show is completely out of the question. There have been reports that a second season of the show is under works, and might be announced at any time in the future now. A release date for the show hasn’t been confirmed, however.
It’s really disappointing for us fans because the show showed a lot of promise. When you don’t get a second season, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth, and that’s been the case with Highschool of the Dead, and so many other anime. I hope a continuation for Highschool of the Dead is announced soon enough. But even if it is announced, the story will probably never conclude because the manga has been left incomplete, so going ahead with Highschool of the Dead will always be a problem for us.
