We believe that Re: Zero ? Starting Life in Another World Season 2 is going to happen, given many major factors. First, there is plenty of material to adapt, as mentioned above. In fact, the original web novel is split into six major Arcs. The last one is the longest one, as appears, given the fact that the first three Arcs contain 155 chapters, while the last one consists of 130 ones. Therefore, we conclude that Re:Zero Season 2 will adapt the fourth Arc. Besides, the first season of the anime adapted just ten volumes of the light novel series. As we know, now there are 13 volumes. As you can see, everything is ready for the second season of the anime, as for the source material.
Secondly, a video game titled 'Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World- Death or Kiss' released on March 30, 2017, in Japan, could serve a useful hint towards the fact that Re:Zero franchise was initially conceived as a long-term project. Finally, it's worth mentioning that this anime holds an excellent score of 8.50/10 among the target audience, based on over 327,000 votes, on MyAnimeList. By the way, the anime has received an incredibly positive response from critics. As a result, the series has won numerous awards, including the nomination for Anime of the Year. In total, all these indicators point us to the possible decision on renewal.
