Will That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 Be Dubbed in English? When to Expect a Dub Release Date

The second season of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, also known as Slime Isekai, is currently thriving on Crunchyroll, home to the first season as well. The episodes that have been broadcast on the popular streaming service so far are in Japanese with English subtitles. However, those who prefer English dubs for the anime need not worry. We have gathered all the information you need about the English dub of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2.

The first season of the popular Isekai anime is currently available on Crunchyroll with subtitles, while the English dub can be found on Funimation. For a long time, the latter has been known for its simuldubs, which frequently became available as early as a couple of weeks following the original release date for select anime.

Dubbing, of course, is an art that requires time and team effort. Like most aspects of culture, the anime industry has been severely impacted by the ongoing pandemic, with many delays not only in the release of dubs, but often in the airing of original episodes as well. Such was the case with the second season of The Promised Neverland Season 2, for instance, which initially had a 2020 release date but had to be moved to January 2021.

Of course, shows like That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime Season 2 are in advantage: the second season of an already popular title whose first season is dubbed is more likely to receive a dub as well. When a cast of voice actors is already assembled and a title's popularity is secured, some of the barriers that might delay the procedure are removed.
