If you are enjoying the Black Clover anime show, then you will definitely be surprised to hear that the current season has been extended beyond the scheduled 51 episodes! This means that the Black Clover season 2 will have to wait for some time.
I am pretty sure that you are up to speed with the current episodes of the show which was supposed to be in the final arc. The current “Underwater Temple Arc” has entered its final stages as Asta, Finral and Vanessa are making a final stand against Vetto, one of the strongest members of the Eye of the Midnight Sun, who has completely overwhelmed our band of heroes. The finale is not too far away as the current arc will be wrapped up by 51 episodes.
I was really disappointed that the season 1 was finishing with the Underwater Temple Arc, because it would have missed a really sweet (read, badass) point to end the show and make the fans look forward to the next season. But hearing that the showrunners have decided to continue the show beyond the scheduled episodes is a great news.
The news was announced as part of the trailer revealed by Studio Pierrot’s continuation of the show and they even released a new visual featuring Asta in his epic, new transformation. For manga readers, this was one of the most epic moments in the story and now the anime watchers will get to witness it as well because the transformation occurs in the upcoming arc, which will be the “The Witches’ Forest Arc”.
Currently there’s no news how many new episodes are going to be aired, but it’s pretty clear that the show will go on for at least one more arc and probably end on a high note with Asta’s new transformation and giving fans something to look forward to!
In one of the recent episodes, it was revealed that Vanessa comes from the Witches’ Forest, so it’s worth noting that there will be a lot of backstory revealed in the upcoming arc and we’ll get to learn more about the Black Bulls’ sexy witch, Vanessa and how she ended up in the magic knight squad.
When to Expect Black Clover Season 2?
There’s no telling when you can expect the season 2 of the show as the current season’s been extended. Moreover, it’s not clear how long the show’s gonna run and how many episodes are going to be aired. They may end the show with just one more arc, or they may go ahead with more episodes; so it’s not clear when the next season will be released.
However, we can make a safe bet that the show’s gonna complete its first season this year only, or by early next year, and the season 2 will air some time in late 2019 or early 2020!
As for the story, it’s only going to get more epic and I don’t really wanna reveal anything as it’s better to watch it firsthand to experience the epic moments. The only thing I expect from the next season is that the animation quality goes up, especially in the fight sequences, and we get to see what the anime is truly capable of.
So, what do you think about Black Clover season 2 getting delayed? Are you happy with the extended first season of the show? Are you hyped to see Asta undergoing a transformation and getting powered up? Let us know in the comments section below!
