Few predicted in 2017 that Reg, Riko, and Nanachi’s journey in Made in Abyss would become one of the most acclaimed adventure anime of all time. Now, a second season is finally set to arrive! Here’s Made in Abyss Season 2’s release date, studio, trailer, where to watch and more.
Is Made in Abyss Season 2 Set After the Movie? Plot
Made in Abyss Season 2, The Golden City of the Scorching Sun, will continue the story from the end of the third movie, Dawn of the Deep Soul, which was released in 2020.
While this is classed as the second season of the series, it’s actually the third part of the story as presented through the anime.
The first season was followed by two compilation films and a third movie that continued the story from the end of the anime.
Made in Abyss Season 2 will continue from the end of that third movie, following the group in The Capital of the Unreturned.
This is all adapted from the Made in Abyss manga created by Akihito Tsukushi that has been pulished since 2012, with 10 volumes created so far.
It’s unconfirmed how much of this new arc will be adapted in this season – some fans believe the conclusion may be saved for another movie, while others think it will all be concluded in the season.
The second season of Made in Abyss will have 12 episodes, running for a single cour. The news was revealed through the early promotions for the Made in Abyss Season 2 DVD, which will consist of two 6-episode collections.

Where to Watch Made in Abyss Season 2
Made in Abyss Season 2 will be streamed internationally on HIDIVE.
Muse Asia has acquired rights to distribute Made in Abyss Season 2 in other Asian regions outside of Japan.
The second season of Made in Abyss will premiere in Japan on AT-X before airing on other channels.
The streaming service HIDIVE is owned by Sentai Filmworks and most of its catalogue is made of their licensed shows.
Made in Abyss is licensed by Sentai, and that’s where you can currently find the first season and movies in most regions.
The Sentai-owned platform also offers dubs for many of its series. Similar to Crunchyroll, dubs are usually announced around one month after the first episode has aired.
What Studio is Producing Made in Abyss Season 2?
Made in Abyss Season 2 will be produced by Kinema Citrus, the same studio that worked on the movies and season 1.
Kinema Citrus made headlines in the Spring 2022 season for what was perceived as bad animation on The Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2. That series was co-produced with DR Movie.
All the key staff from the first season of Made in Abyss and the latest movie are returning for the second season.
The new series will be directed by Masayuki Kojima, in his first directorial role since the movie aired two years ago.
Hideyuki Kurata is once again handling script composition, having recently performed the same role for Goblin Slayer and Girls' Frontline.
Made in Abyss Season 2’s opening theme will be performed by Riko Azuna, who recently performed the popular ending theme to Trapped in a Dating Sim.
The outro, meanwhile, will feature MYTH & ROID, who performed the ending in the first two seasons of Overlord.
