The first season of Trigun Stampede, the newest anime series from Japanese studio Orange (Land of the Lustrous, Beastars), wrapped up on March 25. A second season of the series, announced as the “final phase” of Trigun Stampede, is now in preproduction, so fans don’t have to worry about the anime ending just yet.
The 3D animation style introduced in Orange’s reimagining of Yasuhiro Nightow’s Western space manga Trigun was one of the most interesting and divisive premieres of the winter 2023 anime season, drawing both criticism and praise from fans of the original anime and those new to the series. There is a list of the best anime of the year.
Shortly after the debut of the final episode of Trigun Stampede season 1, Orange announced on Twitter that the studio plans to develop a second season at some point in the future. Here’s the latest on when and what to anticipate from Season 2 of Trigun Stampede. We’ll continue to update this report as more details become available.
Will There Be A Trigun Stampede Season 2?
Yes. On March 25, the official Twitter account for Orange, the studio responsible for producing Trigun Stampede, thanked viewers for watching the show and announced that a second anime season would be made. The tweet said, “Vash will rise again. After all, he is Vash The Stampede.”
Vash will rise again. After all, he is Vash The Stampede.
Their future may seem blank at the moment but we will be working behind stage till the next curtain rise.
Your every support becomes fuel for our engines.

The thread then went on to express gratitude to the anime’s production staff, as well as Yasuhiro Nightow, the show’s creator, and Shonen Gahsha, the publisher of Trigun, for their efforts in bringing the show to fruition, as well as the localization and distribution team, for making the show available to viewers outside of Japan via simulcast.
What Will Trigun Stampede Season 2 Focus on?
While Trigun Stampede is based on Yasuhiro Nightow’s 1995 space western manga Trigun, it is more accurately described as a “spiritual successor” to both the manga and the 1998 anime by Orange rather than a direct adaptation or sequel. The series occurs in an alternate continuity and earlier than the manga or the 1998 anime. It incorporates and repurposes certain characters and plot beats from both.
Trigun Maximum is the continuation of Nightow’s original manga published by Shnen Gahsha, and it’s safe to assume that the second season of Trigun Stampede will feature an interpretation of the major events and characters first seen in that series, as well as elements and scenes depicted after the 17th episode of the 1998 anime.

Therefore, followers should expect to wait at least a year.
