Dorohedoro Season 2: Release Date, Cast, Plot, And More Updates

After launching the Dorohedoro manga series in 2000, Q. Hyashida decided to end the series in 2018 after 18 years. A short time later, the manga was bought up by Studio MAPPA for an adaptation that would premiere in 2020. Since the first season only had 12 episodes despite receiving high praise for its science-fiction setting and bizarre animation, when can we expect to see Dorohedoro: Season 2 on Netflix?

The manga runs to 23 volumes and a huge 167 chapters, so there is plenty of material for MAPPA to work with as they begin production on Dorohedoro: Season 2. You may have to wait a while before you can see the studio’s painstakingly crafted animation of Dorohedoro again because it is also supervising other projects. Fans of the show have been wondering if there will be a second season of Dorohedoro due to the success of the first, more offbeat season.

Dorohedoro Season 2 Renewal Status

Despite the show’s status as a Netflix original, the streaming giant doesn’t have the final say over whether or not it will be renewed. Dorohedoro has not been picked up for a second season as of this writing. Multiple reports attribute this to director Yuichiro Hayashi, who claims that season one rating will determine whether or not Dorohedoro is renewed.

Dorohedoro Season 2 Release Date

Dorohedoro’s second season renewal has not been officially announced by MAPPA, but fans should start getting excited soon. The show’s chances of being extended for a second season are high in light of its phenomenal first-season performance and immediate fan favoritism.

Fans are eager for Season 2 to see what else Caiman and his companion Nikaido get into. Only three of the manga’s twenty-four volumes were explored in the first season, so season two could be even better. The sales of manga copies skyrocket after an anime adaptation. Despite the lack of confirmation from the show’s creators, Season 2 of Dorohedoro is still set to broadcast in 2023.

The first season debuted in 2020 with a planned 12 episodes and 6 OVAs. Similar to the first season, there will be 12 episodes in season 2. Each episode will run for about 23 minutes.

Dorohedoro Storyline

The universe of “Dorohedoro” is a gloomy one in which vicious sorcerers utilize humanity as test subjects for their sorcery. The helpless humans rot in a town called “The Hole,” while the magicians dwell in relative comfort in a parallel dimension connected to The Hole via magical doorways. The main protagonist Caiman has the body of a man but the head of a reptile.

He despises his appearance and cannot recall the person(s) responsible for it. Caiman is determined to get his life back to normal, so he and his friend Nikaido go on a witch hunt. However, the more he learns about the mystery sorcerer, the more he discovers that nothing is as it seems.

Dorohedoro Season 2 Plot

Dorohedoro: At the end of the first season, Caiman and Nikaido made up after their brutal argument. Caiman felt bad about the death of a friend at the hands of her time-traveling abilities, but Nikaido told her that they could still be friends despite her magic use. It is also stated that this is the primary reason why Nikaido settled in Hole; he thought it would be an excellent area to maintain a low profile.

Dorohedoro: Season 2 will presumably feature the impending Central Department Store Story Arc, however, this has not yet been confirmed. The storyline follows the conspiracies that come into play as Nikaido’s dark side takes control. The manga also suggests that Caiman won’t have to look much longer for the sorcerer who altered his looks.
