We have waited for long enough. Even the fans have started asking if there will be a Dragon Ball Super Season 2 and what will be its release date?
It’s been over 6 years since the first episode of Dragon Ball Super aired and the DBS second season should have been here by now. So when will it air?
According to the recent rumors online, the second season of the anime is already in production, and the official English sub trailer will be out very soon.
The first episode of Dragon Ball Super aired on July 5, 2015, and instantly become a hit among Dragon Ball fans from all over the world.
One hundred thirty-one episodes were released with the title of the last episode being “A Miraculous Conclusion! Farewell, Goku! Until We Meet Again!” and fans have been waiting for the anime to return since then.
Toei Animation, the studio behind the Dragon Ball Series is said to have already started on Season 2 but no official news has been released yet.
There have been hints for a new second movie in the works behind the scenes after the release of the Dragon Ball Super Movie.
Many fans expect season 2 of the Dragon Ball anime to feature Broly but it has been confirmed that Broly will not be a part of the Season 2.
Dragon Ball Super manga has been continuing for a while and even though the manga has strayed away from the anime plot, there are high chances that the Moro arc will be adapted for the second season of the anime.
Everything about the upcoming Dragon Ball Super 2 is a rumor right now and nothing has been confirmed as of yet, today we will be discussing how things are going at the Toei Animation and when can we expect Season 2 to be released.
So with all that there’s one question arising in everyone’s mind.
Dragon Ball Super Hero Movie Announced
When fans were looking forward to watching the Dragon Ball Season 2, a movie got announced for 2022.
During the San Diego comic con, the full title of the movie was revealed to be “Dragon Ball Super Hero”. Toei animation was working on a film but no announcements were made, but now everything has been made official.
The first teaser of the movie has been released. Here it is!
Even though fans are hyped for a Dragon Ball Super movie, this teaser means that the second season of the anime has been pushed for the next year. We have shared the release date down below.
Will There Be A Season 2 Of Dragon Ball Super?
Yes, Even though a release date has not been set, the new season of the Dragon Ball Super has been confirmed.
Dragon Ball Super Season 2 is hundred percent a possibility, Season 1 ended at the end of the Tournament of the power arc and there were so many things that were not covered in Season 1.
Vegeta’s promise to Cabbba to visit planet Sadal once the tournament is over is still to be fulfilled and we expect Season 2 to have Vegeta visiting planet Sadal.
Most of the times anime adaptations are based on their ongoing manga chapter but for Dragon ball it’s different. Dragon Ball Super anime always had its own plot and the manga always lagged behind.
We don’t expect the upcoming Dragon Ball Super 2 to be fully based on the ongoing manga, maybe Toei will have a unique plot for the anime.
So when can we expect it to be released, realistically?
Dragon Ball Super Season 2 Release Date
Because of the COVID-19 situation, many anime and manga titles have been delayed and that may be one of the reasons behind Dragon Ball Super anime season 2 not releasing this week.
According to some unofficial sources on Twitter, The Dragon Ball Super Season 2 Episode 1 will start airing around April 2023, once the DBS hero movie is launched.
The second season will be a bit shorter than the first season and DBS S2 will have around 60 episodes in total.
According to an article by Newsweek, Season 2 is supposed to be in pre-production and if this information is true, then the chances of Season 2 premiering in 2023 increase immensely.
Newsweek explained that Season 1 felt rushed, and the animations in some of the episodes were subpar as well. Toei this time wants to come up with the best in terms of storyline and animation and that is why Season 2 for the anime has been delayed.
Dragon Ball Super Season 2 Plot
The tournament of power arc was the main focus of Season 1 anime but things went differently with the manga. As of now, the Moro arc is going on in the manga and fans are expecting that it will be the main focus of DBS Season 2.
Moro is someone who has haunted the universe for thousands of universes and he gets his powers by devouring life force from planets and that is why he is a threat to the multiverse. Goku and Vegeta have trained hard to go against Moro but will their new powers be enough?
Moro arc will make a good storyline for the Dragon Ball Super 2, but fans want more. Fans want Toei to animate Vegeta visiting planet Sadala and meet the king. Vegeta will maybe train them and tell them the story of King Vegeta and how planet Vegeta exploded in Universe 7.
Here’s what a famous Youtuber CallMEARJ had to say about the upcoming Dragon Ball Super season.
The Solo Leveling anime adaptation is set to be announced and will start airing soon, we hope to see the same with Dragon Ball Super 2 anime.
The Return Of Gohan
For the longest period of time, Goku and Vegeta have been the top dogs and main protagonists of the series. But it’s time Gohan makes a return.
Gohan took a back seat after Cell Saga in Dragon Ball Z and has been silent till now. In the future, we are sure to get an arc where Gohan goes ultra instinct and saves Earth.
Dragon Ball Super Season 2 Episode 1 might be the story of Gohan’s return. Gohan turning ultra instinct and fighting against the likes of Moro and Gas will be a sight to see.
Gohan has not appeared even in the manga for the longest period now. Will Gohan make a return in season 2? What do you think?
