The World's Finest Assassin stood out during the Fall 2021 anime season. Its characters and its decent use of isekai tropes made it enjoyable, if not particularly original. At 12 episodes, we've only began to see Lugh's ascension from our own world's finest assassin, to a highborn assassin in a magical world, with a goddess-given quest. So, will a second season carry the adventure forward?

First, a short overview for those who like to binge seasonal anime after they've wrapped up. The World's Finest Assassin follows an elderly assassin who did some damage in his time. However, his superiors decide that he's outlived his usefulness, a fact that results in his death.

The assassin is then reborn with the help of a goddess, who gives him two options. He can either get reincarnated without any memories or retain his memories in true isekai fashion. Opting for the latter, he starts his new life as a noble who retains the skills from his previous life. In doing so, he gets implicated in the goddess' plan to kill a very powerful hero, who is going to destroy the world.

Lugh is quite young for the best part of the first Season A potential next season would likely feature him as a young adult, still trying to defeat the hero.

The World's Finest Assassin Season 2 hasn't been announced yet. However, if we were to make an informed guess, we would expect The World's Finest Assassin to hit our screens at some point in the not-so-far future.

Studio Silver Link, which worked on the anime along with Studio Palette, specializes in isekai. Its distinctive style can't be missed. Moreover, unlike some other studios, Silver Link has been known to produce second seasons. The Summer season's My Next Life as a Villainess Season 2 is a recent example.

Considering that and the show's popularity, we assume that a second season would be possible, especially since we're quite early into Lugh's adventure.

The World's Finest Assassin Season 2 Release Date

There is currently no release date for Season 2 of The World's Finest Assassin. While we definitely consider it a possibility, we expect that it would take at least a couple of years to hit our screens. This is because the light novel is at its early days with just 5 volumes. The ongoing manga has even less than that. Unless the studio was to take significant liberties, they would have to wait until there was sufficient source material to work with.

Watch out for this space, as we are going to update as soon as any information about new content comes up. Meanwhile, the English dub of Season 1 is available to watch on Crunchyroll.
