Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will be released in 2023, according to official confirmation. In addition, we now have a teaser and information on the approximate number of episodes we can expect in the upcoming season.
Before that, do you need a primer? We’ll go over everything that has been confirmed for the upcoming second season below. In order to make predictions about what might happen next, we also looked at the source material. And that’s just the beginning. Continue reading to learn everything we currently know about Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 for all that and more. You may even look at our ranking of the top 15 anime programs to watch right now for more from the genre.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Release Date
Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen will premiere in July 2023 and run through the end of the year.
We anticipate the forthcoming season to consist of at least 20 episodes and possibly more because of the extended duration. There were 24 episodes in the first season.
Recently, two teaser photographs have given us hints about what those arcs may include. The latest, titled “The Shibuya Incident,” includes our contemporary heroes Yuji Itadori, Megumi Fushiguro, and Nobara Kugisaki, whereas the first features Gojo Satoru, Geto Suguru, and Shoko Ieiri in their Jujutsu High uniforms (suggesting a prologue arc).

But what about Jujutsu Kaisen 0’s lead character, Yuta Okkotsu? His imminent appearance in the main series is clearly hinted at in the manga, and a post-credits sequence in the prequel film essentially confirms it as well.
When we inquired about this possibility, English voice actress Kayleigh McKee provided the following response:
“Without a doubt, I would adore it if that occurred. Sincerely, I have no idea where Yuta will go from here, if anywhere, but I do know that if he returns, I would be very interested in seeing how he has further developed.”
“It’s really thrilling to think about what I think he might be and become as he matures more after learning these lessons and perhaps experiencing more adversity and how he’ll manage those differently,” continued McKee. It’s a great idea to be able to show more development for a character like this, who happens to be one of my favorite roles I’ve ever played. And I sincerely hope it does.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Plot
The conclusion of the Death Painting Arc, which took place in chapters 55–64 of the manga version of Jujutsu Kaisen, marked the end of the first season. It is now official that Gojo’s Past Arc, which comprises chapters 65–79 of the manga, will be adapted first in the second season.
That is centered on Gojo’s background, notably a mission in which Geto and Gojo escorted a Star Plasma Vessel to Tengen. You guessed it.
The Shibuya Incident will also be adapted for Jujutsu Kaisen season 2. (chapters 79-136). Don’t worry, we won’t get into the spoiler area, but the Shibuya Incident Arc is centered around Gojo and his new cursed alliance’s scheme to imprison Goto.
That will undoubtedly span two complete seasons, thus the subsequent season should have 24 to 26 episodes.
Do you need a recap of what has previously occurred? After defeating Eso and Kechizu, the Cursed Wombs, Yuji and Nobara reunite with Megumi. However, Sukuna consumes the finger and brings him one step closer to reclaiming his power by using a mouth in Yuji’s hand due to anime.
Expect the new season to deal with this invading evil as well as that of Choso, the third Cursed Womb triplet, who has joined forces with Mahito and Geto.
Additionally, Jujutsu High has a mole, and teacher Utahime is actively looking for the cunning sorcerer. That will also play a significant role in the upcoming season.
Gojo invites Yuji, Megumi, Nobara, Maki, and Panda to participate in a new task after they are recommended for promotion to Grade 1 Sorcerers in the final setup of Season 2…
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Trailer
As a part of the Jump Festa celebration, the first Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 trailer has been made available. Even without any actual video, the Japanese teaser, which gives quick glimpses of several of the season’s major characters, offers a tantalizing preview of what’s to come. Watch it up there.
The first piece of season 2’s key art was also made public via the Jujutsu Kaisen Twitter account. You may view the picture of Gojo and Geto as students below. A trailer is about to come.
Do I need to watch the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie before season 2?
The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is a prelude to the main series, so it’s not absolutely necessary, but we’d still recommend it.
The main character of the film is the swordsman Yuta Okkotsu, who will—mild spoilers—become increasingly significant as the Jujutsu Kaisen anime progresses. You should definitely check out the fuss for yourself because he is also one of the most well-known manga series characters.
Additionally, a post-credits scene sets up upcoming anime events. Although it is unknown if Yuta will appear in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2, the plot centers on him returning to Japan and joining the main series.
It’s also worthwhile to read if you’re a completionist because it gives the world and the curse-filled idea of the universe more detail while still being a good novel in and of itself. If you’re short on time, you can probably skip it, but we strongly advise that you look it up.
Where can I watch Jujutsu Kaisen before season 2?
All 24 episodes of the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen are presently streaming on Crunchyroll if you need to catch up before season 2.
