Vinland Saga: Is There Going To Be A Season 2?
If you have watched the new adventure anime series Vinland Saga, you're no doubt concerned about the possibility of a Season 2. To date, there is no official confirmation of another television adaptation, yet we tend to believe that Vinland Saga Season 2 is due to happen, given some circumstances that point out the possibility of renewal. And below, we are going to explore some of them.
First, we want you to know that Vinland Saga is based on a Japanese historical manga series of the same name, written by award-winning author Makoto Yukimura, which is currently consists of 21 volumes (152 chapters).
The last volume was issued on August 23, 2018. To be honest, we doubt that WIT STUDIO, Inc., the studio, which is responsible for the television adaptation managed to include all the 152 chapters of the original manga in the 24-episode television series. But still, we could be mistaken.
The full picture will be available when the 1st season of the anime is concluded. Nonetheless, given that the Wit Studio worked on such popular anime as Attack on Titan and Seraph of the End, which had other seasons, we are inclined to believe that in the case with Vinland Saga, there would be at least one more season.
In addition, it's worth mentioning that Vinland Saga has been very positively received by viewers, given the statistics by MyAnimeList. According to their data, Vinland Saga holds a score of 8.57/10 based on over 6,100 votes, as of today.
The point is that the anime with such a high score, as a rule, are pretty successful in the BD/DVD sales, the indicator, which, in most cases, play a key role in the decision on renewal. As of today, we don't have such a data, since the 1st round of the series is still broadcasting. However, once we have such statistics, we might extend out forecast.
Of course, we are looking forward to the official announcement from the Wit Studio, yet it's clear for us that Vinland Saga Season 2 is just a matter of time. Nonetheless, if the 1st season covers the entire manga, we face the lack of the source material. But even in such a case, Vinland Saga Season 2 could happen, yet we will have to wait much longer.
Vinland Saga Season 2 Release Date
Above we explored our forecast on the subject of Vinland Saga Season 2, relying on the statistics of the debut season. Since we don't rule out the possibility of renewal, it's time to talk about the likely release date for a sophomore round.
Thus, in the best case scenario, we might see Vinland Saga Season 2 not earlier than next summer, in July 2020, given the current schedule of the series. However, in case with a double-cour season, the production process may last longer. As a result, we don't rule out that the premiere could take place in 2021. In the worst case, if we have no source material when the 1st season is finished, the future of Vinland Saga Season 2 looks doubtful. In such a case, the anime may go on a long-term hiatus.
Therefore, we are tracking down all the Japanese official sources on the subject of any reliable information about the future of Vinland Saga. As soon as we have some additional data about Vinland Saga Season 2 or even a specific release date for a sophomore round, we will update this section. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
