If you are looking for Jujutsu Kaisen season 2’s release date, I have some good news. The anime is set to return in 2023 with a brand-new season, and we have a confirmed release date!
The top-class anime that made the otaku world go crazy over its characters, animation, and plot is returning! Jujutsu Kaisen’s season 1 made the pandemic easier to survive when it hit the screens in October 2020. Gojo’s dazzle and Sukuna’s cold demeanor made it impossible for the fans to wait for it any longer. After waiting for almost a year, staying curious about when Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will come out, fans finally found the moment to rejoice.
Though the anime went on break, the manga was still ongoing, adding more spark to the fans waiting for the anime. Jujutsu Kaisen season 1 covered the first 63 chapters of the manga and the first six arcs out of 14. It ended with the completion of the “Death Painting Arc.”
Jujutsu Kaisen’s season 2 is very much awaited because of the next arcs – Gojo’s Past Arc and the Shibuya Incident Arc. These two arcs are some of the best in the series, and fans can’t wait to see them getting animated. Not much was revealed about Gojo Satoru in the first season, but the second season will be a bit different as he will be the focus of most of the story!
What Is Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date?
It was announced earlier last year that Jujutsu Kaisen’s second season was in production, and along with the announcement, it was revealed that the new season would premiere in 2023.
After that announcement, new visuals were released regularly, keeping fans wanting more. Until now, visuals related to Gojo’s Past arc, which will be referred to as the “Hidden Inventory/Premature Death Arc” in the anime adaptation, have been revealed, but the Shibuya Incident arc is more hyped than anything else.
It’s also confirmed that MAPPA will be responsible for the season’s production, and Crunchyroll will be streaming it. And if you are wondering how many episodes will season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen have, then that’s also been revealed. The new season will run for two cours, i.e., there will be 24 episodes in the season!
So far, we didn’t have an exact release date or even a trailer for the upcoming season, but that’s no longer the case. We have a confirmed release date when the second season’s first episode will premiere!
As announced on March 25, 2023, Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 starts airing on July 6, 2023. The announcement was made on the AnimeJapan 2023 stage. And this means there’s only a little time before we see our favorite characters back in action!
With MAPPA being its production studio again, the animation quality is guaranteed to be worth admiring and far better than the previous one.
And it wasn’t just the release date that was revealed; we also have a full-length trailer for the upcoming season which focuses on the Hidden Inventory/Premature Death Arc and gives a glimpse of young Gojo and young Geto on a mission that pits them against Toji Fushiguro!

What Is Jujutsu Kaisen All About?
Yuuji Itadori is the show’s protagonist and a kind-hearted student whose life flips upside down after the death of his grandpa. His grandpa advises him always to help others in need no matter what. This advice plays a role in changing Yuuji’s life completely. Meanwhile, Yuuji’s friends find a cursed object and decide to unwrap its seal. Megumi Fushiguro, a sorcerer, lands in the place to stop and save them. After a series of twisted events, Yuji ends up helping Fuhsiguro fight against the cursed energies.
Without a second thought, he crashes in to help him. During these incidents, Yuuji somehow ends up eating the cursed object. It turns out to be the world’s most powerful and dangerous “King of Curses,” Sukuna’s fingers. Only one in a million can be Sukuna’s Vessel, and Yuuji proved to be the special one.
Knowing Yuuji is Sukuna’s Vessel, Gojo Satoru takes him in for training to control the powers of Sukuna after making him consume all the fingers. But, the only way to kill Sukuna is to destroy its Vessel. That’s how the spectacular series of events and remarkable battles with the cursed spirits begin!
The plot’s primary focus is not only on Yuuji Itadori but also on other characters. Among them, Gojo enjoys more hype than the protagonist and has more fan following. Instead, Gojo Satoru plays a significant role in making the whole Jujutsu Kaisen anime attain this admiration!
In the coming season, several fights and jaw-dropping battles are expected, where new characters will be introduced. Fans will be able to witness the strongest Domain Expansions in the series. Season 1 covered just a glimpse of Gojo’s powers, and only the glimpse made the internet go crazy. Imagine what would happen when you see Gojo going all out in his fight against the curses and against one particular character that proves too much for even Gojo to handle!
What is Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2’s Plot?
As mentioned earlier, the second season will adapt Gojo’s Past arc and the Shibuya Incident arc, but it will start with Gojo’s Past arc.
In this arc, the story will go back a couple of years in time, back to when Satoru Gojo was still a student at Tokyo Jujutsu High, along with Suguru Geto, who was not only a student too but also Gojo’s best friend.
The two students are tasked with protecting and escorting the Star Plasma Vessel. However, they find themselves being hunted by Toji Fushiguro, a powerful mercenary tasked with retrieving the Vessel and killing the two sorcerers.
Not only will it feature some really cool fight scenes, but the story arc will also highlight exactly how Suguru Geto and Gojo Satoru went from being best friends to finding themselves on opposing sides. It will show us what motivated Suguru to go down the evil route.
Season 2 will begin with Gojo’s Past arc or the Hidden Inventory/Premature Death Arc and adapt manga volumes 8 and 9. The official description for the volumes by Viz Media is as follows:
“Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto have been assigned a mission to escort the Star Plasma Vessel to Master Tengen. When they’re ambushed by Toji Fushiguro, a mercenary known as the Sorcerer Killer, will Gojo and Geto survive? And will this be the turning point where Gojo becomes the world’s strongest exorcist while Geto embraces a life of ruin and rebellion?”
