Were you waiting for the sequel of the controversial anime of 2018, Goblin Slayer? Well, if yes, the sequel is all set to treat your eyes. White fox studio has officially announced that Goblin Slayer Season 2 is in production.
Produced by Takaharu Ozaki, the Goblin Slayer is a dark fantasy anime series based on the light novel series of the same name by Kumo Kagyu and Noboru Kannatsuki.
As the name suggests, the story follows an adventurer named Goblin Slayer, whose only aim in life is to kill as many goblins as he can. He came in contact with a priestess who was part of a guild that takes money for killing Goblins.
White Fox adapted it as an anime that first premiered on October 7, 2018. Season 1 ran for 12 episodes and concluded on December 29, 2018.
Though controversial due to the violence in episode 1 of season 1, season 1 received an overwhelming response with a decent IMDB rating of 7.5 out of 10 and 7.4 out of 10 on My anime list. Later, in February 2021, White Fox premiered a film titled Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown of 85 minutes, the sequel to season 1. Since then, the fans have been waiting for the next installment. Well, let’s find out the fate of Goblin Slayer Season 2.
The Release date of Goblin Slayer Season 2. When will it air?
GA Bunko, the light novel series publishing house, announced the sequel in a live stream called GA FES 2021 in January 2021. The publishing house revealed that the team is working on the production of Goblin slayer. It also released a teaser trailer and promotional poster. However, there is no mention of a release date anywhere. Earlier, when the announcement for season 1 arrived, the studio released season one within a year. If we go by that release schedule, season 2 will hit the screen at the end of 2021. However, there might be a slight delay due to the coronavirus pandemic. But by any chance, we are hoping that it will be released before next summer.

The Plot of Goblin Slayer Season 2. What can we expect from it?
The creators have put the storyline for Goblin Slayer season 2 under wraps. As we know, the anime is based on the manga series, and if the creators decided to stick with the manga for season 2, it is clear that season 2 will begin from where the Goblin Slayer film ended.
The publishing house has published 14 volumes of the series so far, and season one covered only four of them. The movie covered the 5th volume. So, season2 will begin from volume 6. As season one covered four volumes, season 2 might cover the same no. of volumes of novels, that are from volume 6 to volume 10.
Volume 6-10 covers the story of a group of Goblin hunters who band together with a young wizard boy to tackle the goblins at an old mausoleum. They will embark on a new adventure and march towards Elven’s motherland. Further, the group will escort the Sword Maiden to the capital and guard a vineyard. The character of Priestess will develop as she takes the lead in the absence of the Goblin Slayer. On every step, you will witness power-packed action. So, be ready for it.
The Trailer of Goblin Slayer Season 2
The creators released the action-packed trailer of Goblin slayer season 2 during GA FES 2021 on January 31, 2021.
