Chainsaw Man was an outlier in the anime industry in 2022, and its horrific allure won over fans all around the globe. An adorable Chainsaw demon and a young boy named Denji become fast friends in this anime tale set in a world where demons are real. The resulting hybrid, known as the Chainsaw Man, is a ruthless demon hunter with the ability to manufacture chainsaw blades from his own flesh.
This is a bold, mad, and bloody move. Denji has rightfully earned his place on the internet “best of” lists of anime characters, and the animation series as a whole is without blemish. He has yet to reach the end of his adventures, and there are still many more anime bad guys to turn into grisly salsa.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Renewal Status
The legendary Attack on Titan and Jujutsu Kaisen were both produced by the mammoth anime studio MAPPA Studios, which has yet to set a premiere date for a second season. Fans, however, believe a second season is certain given the show’s excellent ratings and the popularity of the first. Jaymes Hanson, a trusted source for anime news leaks, reveals that work on Season 2 of Chainsaw Man has begun. The MAPPA production company, however, has not yet announced any premiere dates. You may relax knowing that Crunchyroll is streaming the first season and will likely do so for any subsequent seasons.

Chainsaw Man season 2 Storyline
Chainsaw Man’s first season followed the adventures of a young boy called Denji and his canine sidekick, Pochita, or the Chainsaw Devil. Denji becomes a Devil Hunter to repay the yakuza debt he inherited from his father, but he is eventually devoured by a Zombie Devil, one of many monsters that materialize from people’s worst nightmares. Chainsaw Man, however, is the result of Denji’s resurrection and fusion with Pochita. He can transform into a sentient chainsaw by pulling the ripcord on his skull.
Throughout the first season, he and his fellow Public Safety Devil Hunters, Power, Aki, Himeno, and Kobeni, observed him develop into his position. Bat Devil, Ghost Devil, and Katana Man are just a few of the villains they battle and ultimately subdue. At the conclusion of the season, Akane has been killed by the Snake Devil, the squad is searching for the Gun Devil, and a mystery new lady has appeared, asking if the viewer would choose to be a “country mouse” or a “city mouse.”
The first 38 chapters of the manga were converted into the first season of Chainsaw Man. The events of the second season are not revealed until Chapter 39, so anyone interested in reading forward should begin then. The extent to which the forthcoming season will deviate from the original material is yet unknown. About 40 percent of the first half of the manga (the Public Safety Saga) has been adapted so far, but there is probably too much ground to cover in a single 12-episode season.
The explosive Bomb Girl arc (chapters 40-52) and the International Assassins arc (chapters 53-70) will be covered in Chainsaw Man’s return unless the second season is much longer. Without giving anything away, the lady named Reze who was seen at the conclusion of the Season 1 finale will play a significant role in the next episodes. As the newly unified Division 4 of Public Safety and its squad of Devil Hunters meet new allies and adversaries, the overall menace of Gun Devil will be felt all the more severely.
Chainsaw Man Season 2 Release Date
Since the show has not been picked up for a second season, there is currently no set premiere date. The 12-episode series Chainsaw Man premiered in October 2022. Our best guess is that the second season of Chainsaw Man will premiere somewhere in late 2023 or early 2024. However, these are all just speculations, so we recommend holding off until the creators announce a firm release date.
Who’s animating Chainsaw Man season 2?
Studio MAPPA, which animated the first season of Chainsaw Man, is also responsible for other highly acclaimed anime including Jujutsu Kaisen, Attack on Titan, and The God of High School.
