When is the Blue Lock season 2 release date? Based on Muneyuki Kaneshiro’s manga of the same name, Blue Lock stole all our hearts back in October 2022. But, fans are already wondering what is next for our strikers.

Blue Lock (aka one of the best anime series on Crunchyroll right now) has managed to hook both sporty and non-sporty anime fans alike, thanks to its drama, style, and adrenaline-inducing scenes. So as we wait to see what will become of the brutal training regimen, here is everything that you need to know about the new anime‘s next chapter. Warning: minor spoilers ahead! 

Blue Lock season 2 release date speculation

Blue Lock season 2 will likely be released in Fall 2024, but we don’t know exactly when Yoichi and his friends will be back on the pitch. 

Season 1 wrapped with its finale in March 2023, and after the last episode, it was shortly announced that the anime series would be getting another season along with a new anime movie as well. That is right! Blue Lock season 2 is definitely on its way.

But a release window for the show’s big return and the new movie is yet to be announced. Given its success and speedy renewal, it’s likely that Crunchyroll will want more Blue Lock as soon as possible, meaning that 2024 is our best bet. Stay tuned for updates!

What will happen in Blue Lock season 2?

Blue Lock season 2 will adapt one of the most exciting and best arcs of the Manga – the U-20 arc. That means we will be seeing the Japan U-20 game finally as our heroes fight to not only save the Blue Lock program but also to become the National representatives.

If you need a quick refresher, Blue Lock season 1 ended with Ego telling the team that if they lose the next match, the program will be shut down. This is already intense, but things get more dramatic once we learn that Rin’s brother, Sae Itoshi, will be playing with the Japan U-20 team, too.

So, needless to say, season 2 of Blue Lock will see this epic showdown take place. And without giving to much away, we know that this match is also just the start of the massive scale plans that Ego has in mind.

If Blue Lock season 2 also adapts the Neo Egoist League Arc after U-20, we will also see the first steps towards the u-20 World Cup. Basically, the future of the show is very exciting, and personally, we can’t wait for the anime to return.

Who will be in the Blue Lock season 2 cast?

Expect to see the main players from season 1 in Blue Lock season 2’s cast, including Kazuki Ura, Kaito Tasuku, and Yuuki Ono.

Not a lot of death or destruction (well, not physically, anyway) on the pitch this time around. We also know that, despite seemingly leaving Blue Lock after being “disqualified,” Kunigami is set to return for season 2. So, don’t expect that many casting change-ups going forward.

Here’s the expected Blue Lock season 2 cast list:

  • Kazuki Ura as Yoichi Isagi
  • Kaito Tasuku as Meguru Bachira
  • Hiroshi Kamiya as Jinpachi Ego
  • Yuuki Ono as Rensuke Kunigami
  • Nobunaga Shimazaki as Seishiro Nagi
  • Junichi Suwabe as Shoei Baro
  • Soma Saito as Hyoma Chigiri
  • Shinnosuke Tachibana as Aoshi Tokimitsu
  • Kouki Uchiyama as Rin Itoshi
  • Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Jingo Raichi
  • Daishi Kajita as Asahi Naruhaya
  • Kenichi Suzumura as Ryousuke Kira

Is there a Blue Lock season 2 trailer?

Currently, there is no trailer for Blue Lock season 2. And the bad news is that we don’t expect to see any new clips until mid-2024. 

Since trailers come out a few months before a TV series, a full-length teaser depends on a release date. We don’t have a release window for Blue Lock season 2 yet, so we’re out in the cold until more news heads our way.

But luckily Crunchyroll’s YouTube channel has a playlist of clips to revisit from season 1. Check it out down below!

Where can I watch Blue Lock season 2?

Blue Lock season 2 isn’t out yet, but when it is, you’ll be able to stream it on Crunchyroll with a subscription.

There’s lots of great stuff over on Crunchyroll, so we highly recommend trying out the streaming service. It’s the current home of some of the best anime characters of all time, such as Luffy from One Piece or Nezuko from Demon Slayer.

How many episodes of Blue Lock season 2 will there be?

Season 1 of Blue Lock had 24 episodes, so we think season 2 will have at least 20.

As mentioned above, the anime will be adapting the next arc from the anime, which is over 50 chapters long. There is a lot of ground to cover, so we expect to see another long season. However, there is also the Blue Lock movie to consider. We may see a shorter season 2, thanks to the upcoming animated movie.

The plot of the Blue Lock movie is being kept under wraps, but it will likely cover a large section of either the U-20 arc or the Neo Egoist League arc. It may get the Demon Slayer treatment and have the film replace a number of episodes in the new season, making the overall season 2 episode count under 20.

This is speculation on our part, though, so keep your eyes on this page as we update you on the official news soon.

And that is everything you need to know about Blue Lock season 2! For more anime, here are our guides on Demon Slayer season 4 and One Punch-Man season 3. We also have lists of the best anime villains of all time and the best Netflix anime to stream right now.
