Lookism Season 2 Release Date
Lookism Season 1 was released on 8 December 2022 and as of now there is no release date or renewal announcement for season 2. Fans have been wondering why there is no other season even though the anime was a great hit. There could be several reasons why Lookism Season 2 hasn’t been renewed but it’s most likely because the studio that animated the show already has other anime to cover.
However, keeping in mind all the other aspects like how well it was received by the audience and how popular it got there’s a strong possibility that fans will get to hear about the renewal of the show by 2024 and possibly Lookism Season 2 will be released soon after.
Animation Studio and Where To Watch?
Lookism Season 1 was animated by Studio Mir, a popular Korean animation studio. Some notable works of Studio Mir are Voltron: Legendary Defender, Dota: Dragon’s Blood, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf and many more. Even though the studio hasn’t made it official, Lookism Season 2 is most likely to be animated by Studio Mir itself.
The studio earned a good revenue and gained a lot of popularity because of this and they might not let the anime go to any other studio. Studio Mir also released a few anime like Skull Island and My Adventure With Superman in 2023 they also have two anime upcoming in 2024 which are Koji and Devil May Cry.
It’s clear that the studio is already busy. Lookism was licensed by Netflix and was available to watch there. It’s safe to say season two of the anime will also be available there. Netflix also hasn’t made any comment whether they’ll licence the anime for another season but they haven’t cancelled it either.
Lookism Plot & Season 1 Recap
In the world of Lookism, where one’s social standing is determined by attractiveness, Park Hyung-Seok, a high school student who faces bullying due to his weight and appearance, grapples with the challenges that come with it.
However his life takes a turn when he wakes up to find himself inhabiting two bodies; his portly self and a new tall and attractive form. This dual existence allows him to navigate through two worlds.
One where he is seen as unattractive and the other where he is admired for his looks. As Hyung-Seok adjusts to his body remarkable changes occur in his life. People who once treated him poorly now shower him with adoration leading to popularity.
The first season primarily revolves around the festival arc in which both Hyung-Seok and Duk-Hwa participate. The story reaches its climax when they perform a song together at their school’s festival.
A crucial moment arises when a representative from a record label offers Hyung-Seok a deal but he turns it down unless it includes his friend Duk-Hwa. While their performance catches the attention of a musician it also hints at storylines, for a second season.
