Over a year has passed since the conclusion of the first season of Erased. Within this period millions of fans were eager to know what will happen next in the story. Fortunately, now we have a chance to lift the veil into the further development of storyline thanks to a new manga released in addition to a novel.
A live action web drama is slated to premiere this winter thanks to the efforts of Netflix. Previously, another live action film came out in Japan on March 19, 2016. However, we still want to know, is there going to be a Season 2 of Erased? The first season consisted just of twelve episodes. As a result, few of us satisfied with the end of the season. So, let's try to figure it out, do we need to wait for Erased Season 2?
In general, it's a very positive trend when a franchise continues of extending. Now we have two manga series, a light novel, one season of the anime, one live action film, as well as the upcoming web drama by Netflix. Thus, there are lots of materials to adapt, as appears. But the second season is still in doubt, nonetheless, since there has been no official announcement on the subject. On the other hand, there are many factors in favor of the possible renewal of the franchise. Among them, an impressive rating of Erased on MyAnileList, 8.58/10 ~ 363,000 votes.

Additionally, a five-star rating on Funimation. Summing up all the indicators presented above, we conclude that there has to be a next season of the series. We just need to wait for a while for the official announcement by A-1 Pictures Inc. As of now, there has been no official news on the subject. To be sure of this, we suggest you visit the official website (EN).
Erased (Boku Dake ga Inai Machi) premiered in January 2016 on Fuji TV. It is a television adaptation of the eponymous manga series by Kei Sanbe issued in 2012. The A-1 Pictures studio served as a developer of the series. Aniplex has acquired the rights to the anime in North America. The first season consisting of twelve episodes came to an end on March 25, 2016. The anime is available at FUNimation and Crunchyroll websites.
What Is Erased About?The story focuses on the unusual life of Satoru Fujinuma. He is a regular manga artist, as it appears. However, he possesses a unique ability to travel back in time before the moment of any tragic incident. Doesn't matter would it be the murder of his mother or some case of abduction, Satoru has a chance to prevent the tragedy. He appears just a few minutes before the accident that allows him to use his supernatural power that he calls "Revival." Thus, he is one who is capable of saving many lives. This time, he once again embarks on a mission to prevent the death of his classmate that happened eighteen years ago.
On The Subject Of The Possible Release Date For Season 2As mention above, the decision on the renewal of Erased for the next season is unclear so far. However, we share the common opinion that the second season is going to happen. The only question remains, when? In general, the world of anime is quite static. Few events happen within a year. As a result, most of the fans have been forced of waiting for years, until the next season of their favorite anime.
However, in the case of Erased, it seems that everything in favor of the new season, given the fact that even such distinguished global content provider as Netflix to try its hand in the web television adaptation of the franchise. Therefore, we believe that the decision on renewal will follow soon. However, this will happen not earlier than at the end of 2018. Hence, most likely, we need to wait Erased Season 2 release date someday next fall. In any case, we're waiting for the official announcement, and we'll keep you informed on the subject.
