Without a doubt, Beastars is easily one of the most popular anime series out right now, and with the end of season 1, fans have been eagerly waiting for the second season to come out.
Looks like the wait won’t be too long after all, as Studio Orange has just announced that the show’s second season will be airing in Japan in January 2021. Prior to that, manga writer Paru Itagaki had announced that the second season would be coming to Netflix some time in 2021, but did not specify a release date or window.
For the uninitiated, Beastars is an anime series with an all-animal cast. Taking place in the Cherryton Academy, tension quickly arises between the carnivore and herbivore students when an alpaca is found mysteriously brutally murdered in the night.
The second season will continue the story from where the first season left off, and is set to air in January 2021.
