Darwin’s Game is a popular science fiction anime that aired in 2020. Nexus studio produced the anime adaptation, which premiered on January 3, 2020. The manga-based script was originally written and produced by FLIPFLOPs in 2012.
Nexus studio is a Japanese animation studio that has been around for the past few years, but they have proven that they are doing great work with this anime. The studio is well known for the popular series Chivalry of a Failed Knight.
The first season of the 11-episode animated series is available on Crunchyroll and Funimation, and Aniplex of America licensed the animation. Also available on Netflix and Hulu TV.
Therefore, the popular anime series has attracted viewers from all over the world. Fans are eagerly waiting for the second season after more than a year of waiting. So, has the show been picked up for another season?
Will Darwin’s Game Have A Second Season?
Although some sources say that the movie has been renewed for a second season and will have a big impact on the viewers, this is not the case. There is no cancellation until August 2022, but the series has not yet been renewed for another season.
Studio Nexus, the manga publisher, Akita Shoten, FLIPFLOPs, and other related companies have kept the new season of anime in the archives.
Although no announcement has been made, expectations about the upcoming season can be made. The new season of the anime is recommended according to the specific model. Let’s look at these factors together.
What are the details of Darwin’s game?
Sudo Kaname’s phone received a message. Clicking on the fake link in the email will use Kaname for Darwin’s game. A few hours later, a message appeared on his phone and the player indicated that he wanted to play with him. He didn’t care and went about his school day.
Kaname accepts the request of a person wearing a panda costume with a knife in a phone picture; In fact, a man dressed as a panda appeared and attacked him. Surviving the attack, Kaname realizes that he cannot leave the game and the hard times begin.
Darwin’s Game Season 2 Cast?
Since it is based on a manga series, there is a small chance that the main characters will be changed or removed. In the next one, we have to see the same actors and shows from the previous season. There may be new faces, but we don’t know for sure. Here are the main characters:
- Kaname Sudo is voiced by Yusuke Kobayashi (Japanese), Stephen Fu (English)
- Shuka Karino is vocalized by Reina Ueda (Japanese), Alexis Tipton (English)
- Rein Kashiwagi is played by Nichika Omori (Japanese), and Tia Ballard (English)

Aðrar persónur és aukahlutverkum eru Hamada (Yuya Hirose), Kyoda (Chiaki Kobayashi), Shinozuka (Fukushi Ochiai), Suzune Hiiragi (Konomi Kohara) és Wang (Yoshitsugu Matsuoka).
The Possible release date for Darwin’s Game:
At the time of writing, August 25, 2022, the anime has not been picked up for a second season. Nexus hasn’t talked about animation plans for 2023 or beyond, so it’s not clear if they’re working on it.
But despite selling a few records, Darwin’s Game is one of the most profitable products. As the show has not been renewed, there will not be a new season in 2022. So far, the best estimate for the next season is between 2023 and 2024.
As mentioned, the anime is based on the manga written and produced by FLIPFLOPs. The manga started on December 12, 2012, and is still running.
To date, 26 volumes of manga published in Bessatsu Shonen Champion magazine have been published, the last volume will be published on June 8, 2022.
The continuation of the manga series is important both for the availability of material and for the idea of a new season as a promotion for the manga. In terms of story and graphics, the anime is incredibly faithful to the manga.
The first season covers 30 manga chapters. It is around the eighth volume. This is good news because the manga has enough content for one more season and beyond. The manga series also has no end date, which promises more material in the future.
The Success of Animation:
Darwin’s Game is an anime available worldwide from Funimation and Crunchyroll. The anime is based on the manga series, which is one of Japan’s best-sellers. According to Myanimelist, it is ranked 391, which is higher than the average position.
But his location in Japan was decided when the new anime season was released. To date, 40,000 people have followed the anime.
That number seems average, but not strong enough to warrant a new season. The show continues in the new season usually has more than 100,000 followers. From this perspective, the Darwin game seems more demanding.
