Dragon Ball Super season 2 release date speculation, cast, and news

The Dragon Ball Super season 2 release date promises more from Goku and the Z Fighters, but something just as exciting is on the way in the anime series too.

Dragon Ball Super season 2 release date

When is the Dragon Ball Super season 2 release date? Dragon Ball Z was a massive gateway to anime for so many of us in the ’90s, leading to a collective obsession that’s remained to this day. So, we were very excited in 2015 when all of our favorite characters returned for the sequel series Dragon Ball Super.

Over the course of five sagas, Dragon Ball Super has been another of the best anime from creator Akira Toriyama, reintroducing many of the best Dragon Ball Z characters like Goku and Vegeta. You’ve got wild battles, some convoluted drama, and more than one occasion in which some of the best anime characters get really angry, and their hair turns yet another color.

But we’ve been patiently waiting for more episodes since 2018. So, we’ve gotten out our Dragon Radar to scour the internet. Below is everything we discovered about Dragon Ball Super season 2!

Dragon Ball Super season 2 release date speculation

Dragon Ball Super season 2 hasn’t been confirmed, but a new series titled Dragon Ball: Daima will debut in Fall 2024.

While the anime movie Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero opened the door for another saga, it was revealed at New York Comic Con’s Dragon Ball panel that we’re getting a fresh show rather than season 2.

However, there’s plenty to be excited about, because Akira Toriyama is overseeing Daima, and animators have hinted this will explicitly carry strands of Super. In an interview on the official Dragon Ball website, Florence Jay Dominguito, who’s part of the crew at Toei Animation Philippines, commented on the show.

“As a fan, I’m really looking forward to new movies and merchandise,” they said. “I’m also excited about the new anime that will continue Dragon Ball Super.” They could have misspoken, but that sounds like this won’t be a wild diversion like GT – and thank Shenron for that!

Who’s in the Dragon Ball Super season 2 cast?

Neither Dragon Ball Super season 2 nor Dragon Ball: Daima have had any casting announcements yet. However, we expect the long-running main aactors, such as Masako Nozawa, Sean Schemmel, Ryo Horikawa, and Christopher Sabat, to return. 

We are sure more characters will be revealed soon. And thanks to a clip for Dragon Ball: Daima, we know old friends will be returning to the franchise in some capacity, such as Majin Buu. Stay tuned for updates!

The likely Japanese Dragon Ball Super season 2 cast list:

  • Masako Nozawa as Goku/Gohan/Goten
  • Ryo Horikawa as Vegeta
  • Toshio Furukawa as Piccolo
  • Aya Hisakawa as Bulma
  • Mayumi Tanaka as Krillin
  • Takeshi Kusao as Trunks
  • Yūko Minaguchi as Pan/Videl
  • Kōichi Yamadera as Beerus
  • Masakazu Morita as Whis
  • Ryūzaburō Ōtomo as Shenron
  • Ryusei Nakao as Frieza

The likely English Dragon Ball Super season 2 cast list:

  • Sean Schemmel as Goku
  • Christopher Sabat as Vegeta/Piccolo/Shenron
  • Kyle Hebert as Gohan
  • Monica Rial as Bulma
  • Sonny Strait as Krillin
  • Robert McCollum as Goten
  • Eric Vale as Trunks
  • Jeannie Tirado as Pan
  • Kara Edwards as Videl
  • Jason Douglas as Beerus
  • Ian Sinclair as Whis

Following the untimely passing of Christopher Ayres in 2021, there is no English voice actor for Frieza, and while we’re sure the role will be recast, we’re not sure how we’ll feel when we first hear Frieza’s new voice.

What will Dragon Ball Super season 2 be about?

If announced, the story of Dragon Ball Super season 2 will focus on Pan and a new group of Z Fighters. However, we do know that Super’s follow-up series, Dragon Ball: Daima, will focus on a new story involving Goku and the gang turning into kids.

So, let’s look at both these cases. If Dragon Ball Super season 2 gets announced, we will see Pan’s adventures continue as established at the end of Super Hero. Goten and Trunks are both ready to train again with Gohan and Piccolo, and we have some new heroes as well. Meanwhile, Broly and Beerus are training with Goku and Vegeta.

Really, we just need to find out which of the best anime villains will arrive to test everyone’s might. Broly and Beerus are out, but in the manga, we’ve seen new enemies rise up, including the ancient wizard Moro, the proud Granolah, and the conniving Heeters. Even worse, we know Frieza’s been training and may have tapped into a new level of power.

But if Dragon Ball: Daima is the only follow-on from the Super series, we know that this franchise will be taking a new course. In a short clip that was released, it looks like Daima will be set before the events of Dragon Ball Super as we see a mysterious new figure watching the Majin Buu arc. Goku and Vegeta are alive, and the Battle of Gods isn’t referenced anywhere.

The teaser also sees Goku and his friends being turned into kids, so we are betting this will be a major plot point as they struggle to uncover what has happened to them and how to get back to normal. We will keep you posted as more information on the new anime heads our way.

Is there a Dragon Ball Super season 2 trailer?

While there is no trailer for Dragon Ball Super season 2. A teaser for Dragon Ball: Daima was shared in October 2023.

In the clip, we see Vegeta, Goku, Bulma, and more get turned into small kids (anyone else having Dragon Ball GT flashbacks?). Majin Buu turns up along with Babidi, and there are plenty of fights and space antics on display, too.

While it isn’t a Super season 2 trailer, this clip is the next step in the franchise, so be sure to check it out below!

How many episodes are in Dragon Ball Super season 2?

We don’t yet know how many episodes will make up Dragon Ball Super season 2, but the first season ran for a mammoth 121 episodes, so all bets are off.
