Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen is scheduled to premiere in 2023, and we now have our first look at the new season. Exciting, yes? There is even more movement on this front: we can look forward to a new TV special in the very near future, which should help us pinpoint the exact release date for season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen.
Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 will air in 2023
The second season of Jujutsu Kaisen will premiere in 2023, as confirmed during an event in Japan (Credit: Crunchyroll). Winter 2023 (beginning January 2023), spring 2023 (beginning April 2023), and fall 2023 are the three major release windows for anime (starting October 2023).
If we had to wager, we’d say that a release in the fall of 2023 is most likely. MAPPA has also worked on Jujutsu Kaisen 0, Attack on Titan, and the October premiere of Chainsaw Man. That is a demanding schedule for any studio, but beginning in October 2023, they would have sufficient time to produce a second season that meets their absurdly high standards.
The outcome will be determined on September 25. On that date, a special will air, with Jujutsu Kaisen expected to be the subject of some announcements.

Which chapters could be adapted for Jujutsu Kaisen season 2?
The first season of Jujutsu Kaisen concluded with the conclusion of the Death Painting Arc, which ran from manga chapters 55 to 64. If the anime continues to adapt the manga in release order, the Gojo’s Past Arc, which spans chapters 65-79 in the manga, will be adapted next.
This involves a mission involving Gojo and Geto escorting a Star Plasma Vessel to Tengen from Tengen.
If that’s the case, the second season may be a collection of flashbacks to Gojo’s past, as well as a setup for the Shibuya Incident, the major next arc (chapters 79-136). The entire Shibuya Incident Arc revolves around a plot to seal away Goto, which is spearheaded by Gojo and his new cursed alliance.
This scenario has more than enough material for a second season of 25 episodes and seems the most likely. The conclusion of the first season may also indicate that this is the case.
Having defeated Eso and Kechizu, the Cursed Wombs, Yuji and Nobara rejoin Megumi. Sukuna, however, eats the finger and brings Yuji one step closer to regaining his power by using a mouth in Yuji’s hand.
Expect the new season to deal with this advancing evil as well as Choso’s alliance with Geto and Mahito, the other two triplets of the Cursed Womb.
In addition, there is a mole at Jujutsu High, and teacher Utahime is on the hunt for the treacherous sorcerer. This will also comprise a substantial portion of the next season.
Yuji, Megumi, and Nobara, along with Maki and Panda, are recommended for promotion to Grade 1 Sorcerers, and Gojo invites them to participate in a new mission…

Should I watch the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie before the second season?
Due to the fact that the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 film is a prequel to the main series, it is not required viewing.
The film focuses on the swordsman Yuta Okkotsu, who, as the Jujutsu Kaisen anime progresses, will play an increasingly important role. He is also one of the most popular characters in the manga series, so you should definitely check out the series for yourself.
There is also a scene after the credits that sets up future events in the anime. It focuses on Yuta’s return to Japan and incorporation into the main series, although it is unknown whether he will appear in Jujutsu Kaisen season 2.
It fleshes out the world and the curse-heavy concept of the universe, while simultaneously being a compelling story in its own right. It may be skipped if you’re short on time, but we strongly advise you to seek it out.
Where can I watch the first season of Jujutsu Kaisen?
If you need to catch up on Jujutsu Kaisen before season 2, you can currently watch all 24 episodes of the first season on Crunchyroll.
