Death Parade: Is There Going To Be A Season 2?
I bet you have already been read plenty of articles on the subject of Death Parade Season 2, yet found no answers to your primary question, whether there will be another season. Therefore, the first thing I want you to know is that there is still no official confirmation of the 2nd season, no matter what did you hear or read on the subject anytime.
Besides, Death Parade Season 2 is quite a doubtful matter since the anime series has no source material as we used to treat it such as a light novel or manga. In my opinion, Death Parade won't return for Season 2, yet I don't rule out the possibility of renewal, completely. It's worth mentioning though that Death Parade Season 1 has received the universal acclaim from the target audience. On MyAnimeList, the 1st round of the anime holds a score of 8.24/10 based on approx. 450,000 votes.
Another factor, which could positively affect the decision on renewal is that the BD/DVD sales of the franchise were above average. About 1,000 BD items were sold per week in 2015. As a result, Death Parade looks as a commercially successful franchise. Yet since the anime has no source, I doubt that the Madhouse studio is about to pick up the series for a sophomore season. Over four years have passed since the ending of a 12-episode season. In other words, there was plenty of time to film another television season. Nonetheless, Madhouse is likely busy because of the studio's other television projects.
On the other hand, the world of anime made such a way that an abandoned project could be revived by another studio or by the same studio someday. Yet in the case with Death Parade, the situation looks not in favor of renewal, unfortunately. As a result, we tend to believe that the franchise is dead.
Death Parade Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, even despite the fact that we in TV Date are almost sure that the anime won't return for Season 2, we don't rule out the decision on renewal at all. Thus, in the best case scenario, we might see Death Parade Season 2 this winter, in January 2020, given the current schedule of the series, though quite unlikely.
But still, in any case we are tracking down all the news which arrives from the official Japanese sources. As soon as the Madhouse studio reveals any data on the subject of Death Parade Season 2, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
