Jujutsu Kaisen revolves around the concept of cursebut the manga of Gege Akutamiand theanime that followed, is anything but cursed.
Since this franchise launched in March 2018, the source material has already become one of the best-selling manga of all time – and the anime is also breaking all kinds of records, especially with the recent prequel movie, Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
But what’s next for Yuji and the band? Brush up on your best cursed techniques and join us on Digital Spy for the sequel to Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Potential Air Date: When Will It Air?
On February 12, 2022, Jujutsu Kaisen confirmed that a second season was on the way (via Crunchyroll), but it won’t arrive until 2023. That means we’re facing three likely release windows: Spring 2023 (from April 2023), Fall 2023 (from October 2023), or Winter 2023 ( from January 2023).
October 2023 seems like the strongest possibility, mainly because the first season was released around the same time. But that doesn’t mean new episodes couldn’t arrive sooner.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Cast: Who’s In It?
Here are all the main japanese actors and English who we think will return for the second season of Jujutsu Kaisen:
Yuji Itadori – Junya Enoki (Japanese); Adam McArthur (English)
Megumi Fushiguro – Yuma Uchida (Japanese); Robbie Daymond (English)
Nobara Kugisaki – Asami Seto (Japanese); Anne Yatco (English)
Maki Zen’in – Mikako Komatsu (Japanese); Allegra Clark (English)
Toga Inumaki – Kōki Uchiyama (Japanese); Xander Mobus (English)
Panda – Tomokazu Seki (Japanese); Matthew David Rudd (English)
Satoru Gojo – Yūichi Nakamura (Japanese); Kaiji Tang (English)
Kiyotaka Ijichi – Mitsuo Iwata (Japanese); Chris Tergliafera (English)
Shoko Ieiri – Aya Endō (Japanese); Ryan Bartley (English)
But what about Yuta Okkotsuthe main character who plays in Jujutsu Kaisen 0? The manga strongly suggests that he will appear in the main series very soon, and a post-credits scene in the prequel film also confirms this.
This is what the English actress Kayleigh McKee said when we asked her about this possibility:
“I would definitely love for that to happen. Honestly, I don’t know what direction Yuta will take, if ever there is one, but I do know that if he does come back, I’d be very excited to explore him more. evolve and mature.”
McKee added: “The idea of who I think he would be, and become, as he matures after learning those lessons, and potentially goes through further hardships, and how he will handle them differently, is so exciting to think about.
“To be able to get that ability to portray more evolution for a character like this, which is one of my favorite characters that I’ve played, is a really good idea. And I hope that will happen.”
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Plot: What Will Happen?
The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen ended with the Death Painting Arc, which spans chapters 55-64 of the manga. Assuming the anime follows the source material chronologically, expect to see Gojo’s Past Arc in the second season, which spans chapters 65-79.
However, we wouldn’t be surprised if the new episodes combine these flashbacks with the manga’s next major arc, the Shibuya incident from chapters 79 to 136. Without saying too much, that means season 2 will be all about the evolution of certain characters, as well as the identity of the mole currently hiding in Jujutsu High School.
A post-credits scene in Jujutsu Kaisen 0 also hinted that Yuta was soon to arrive on the scene, which sounds great in theory, but let’s just say it doesn’t bode well for Yuji…
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 trailer: When can I see it?
Footage of Jujutsu Kaisen’s second season hasn’t arrived yet, but we hope to see at least a glimpse of these new episodes in early 2023.
Jujutsu Kaisen is available on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
