Certainly, the theatrical film, which premiered this winter proves that the franchise is alive. Looks like, those who stands behind the franchise are going to determine whether the franchise is commercially valuable for continuation. There is not a shadow of doubt that if the movie grossed enough box office, there must be The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2.
As mentioned above, another key factor which plays in favor of another season is that the light novel of the same name is continuing serialization. The more new volumes are being released, the more chances that Yojo Senki Season 2 will finally happen. After all, at least three more volumes were issued after the conclusion of the first installment of the anime.
Given the fact that the debut season consisted of only twelve episodes, there is now enough source material for another television adaptation (or will be soon enough). One more key feature is that the same staff worked on the anime film, which was involved in the development of the television adaptation. Moreover, the film served as a direct sequel to the anime.
Previously, on March 17, 2017, Crunchyroll issued a provocative article claiming that Saga of Tanya the Evil will be extended to fourteen additional episodes. Thus, the total number of episodes of the series counts up to twenty-six. We didn't find any reliable source capable of confirming these data, yet we rely upon the authority of Crunchyroll.
Scott Green refers to Yaraon Blog where we can find the confirmation of this announcement. Indeed, they point towards iQIYI, the leading Chinese streaming service. However, already in his next article, Scott notes that, in fact, there has been no official confirmation on this matter. In any case, we consider this announcement as good news.
The worst thing that might happen is that it will be the second cour of Season 1. As a rule, one cour consists of 10 to 14 episodes that usually run during a three-month period. The first season of Saga of Tanya the Evil consisted of 12 episodes. Perhaps, NUT has released just the first half of the season. Thus, we will have to wait a bit until the announcement of the second cour or second season.
We tend to think that the Chinese source tells us about the remained fourteen episodes of the first season. But we would be happy as well as you if they're talking about Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2 (if the source is reliable). However, we'd prefer to trust the Japanese sources instead.
Summing up, looks like we are now on the eve of the official confirmation of Yojo Senki: The Saga of Tanya the Evil Season 2. There has been no official announcement so far, but numerous factors point out the positive case scenario. In any case we are looking forward to the official news from the studio NUT. As soon as, the studio spokesman makes any official announcement, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates.

Yojo Senki: The Saga of Tanya the Evil SummaryOne guy refuses to believe in the existence of God. He rejects the afterlife as well. However, he must come to terms with this fact when he dies. The mysterious Being X, calling himself God, decides to punish this man for his skepticism. Even standing in front of God, the man is continuing to doubt the concept of the immortality of the soul and reincarnation. As a result, he found himself reborn in the body of a girl, Tanya Degurechaff.
Later, the story continues in the world similar to WWI Europe. According to the prescription, Tanya must die a natural death. Otherwise, she will rot in hell, while atoning the sins of her past. In an attempt to avoid the punishment, Tanya enlists the military service into the Empire's Mages Division. Her primary goal is to escape the possible death on the battlefield. To achieve that purpose she will have to climb in the military table of ranks as high as possible. Thus, Tanya turns into a ruthless soldier, who is going to wipe out any obstacle on the way. She dominates upon the inferior soldiers and severely punishes those who dared to disobey. Because of this, Tanya has a nickname, the "Devil of the Rhine."
