Will Bocchi the Rock! Have a Season 2?

As of writing, the second season of Bocchi the Rock! hasn't been announced yet by studio CloverWorks or by other creators working on the slice-of-life anime.

With that being said, the story of Hitori, a lonely, shy girl who gets to finally live out her dream of joining a band, has captured fans' hearts, making Bocchi the Rock! an unlikely Fall 2022 sensation.

The anime has been commended for its songs, colorful aesthetics, and upbeat atmosphere, and many anime viewers would love to see more, so a second season can't be ruled out entirely at this point.

Bocchi the Rock! is based on an ongoing manga by Aki Hamaji, so more content could come out, which could then be animated. But since there are currently only five manga volumes, this would probably take some time.

Anime shows by studio CloverWorks have previously received sequels with varying degrees of success, such as The Promised Neverland Season 2, which demonstrated a very inconsistent quality.

Of course, the studio has since then also produced gems like Spy x Family, so a Season 2 of Bocchi the Rock! wouldn't necessarily be a flop.

The release date of Bocchi the Rock! Season 2 hasn't been announced yet, so we can only predict if and when it could come out.

For very popular titles, a Season 2 might be announced as soon as the first season's finale airs, to maintain the momentum.


The anime finished airing in late December 2022, and, so far, a second season hasn't been announced.

But this doesn't mean that all plans for a second season of Bocchi the Rock! have been dropped. For plenty of shows, a second season is announced much later.

Popular anime can get a second season as soon as one year after the first, but it's not unheard of for sequels to take two years or more to get produced.

Anime studios have tight schedules and often have to plan the anime they are producing in advance, so fan favorites sometimes have to wait.

Since Bocchi the Rock! doesn't have all that much manga content to begin with, an immediate Season 2 might be a little unrealistic right now. But this could change when we have a few more chapters.

Of course, this isn't to say that other types of content, such as an anime OVA, can be ruled out.

If any additional Bocchi the Rock! content is announced, we will update this space with more information.
