Prison School is one of the most highly acclaimed anime series of its time. The first season which ended with many cliffhangers, left broad scope for a Prison School season 2. Based on the manga of the same name, the series might get a renewal in terms of a new season.

Prison School Season 2 Release Date

So far, season one’s producer- J.C Studio- has not issued any official statement regarding a new season. Consequently, there are no updates whatsoever about the release date of season 2. The first season gained a wide fanbase and was very popular, which gives hope regarding season 2.

On being asked, the director of the first season, Tsutomu Mizushima, answered on his Twitter account with embarrassed face emoji that he wants to continue with season 2. Unfortunately, as of now, he has no idea. Considering the studio’s tight-lipped nature about new projects, this is only an expected outcome.

Season 2 Cast 

The Japanese cast for the new season will remain unchanged in all probability. The new season will most likely have Taishi Nakagawa, Tokio Emoto, Galigali Galixon, and the rest returning as the series’s voice actors if it gets a new season.

English Cast

Japanese dub of the first season was universally applauded, whereas the English dub was heavily criticized. Therefore, the first season’s English cast will not be returning as the voice-overs for the series’ characters. Specifically, if the studio wants to achieve a proper reception of the new season, this would be the case.

Prison School Plot and Facts

By Akira Hiramoto and published by Kodansha, Prison School is a seinen anime series that captures the events occurring in Hachimitsu Private Academy. The all-girls school, known for its strict curriculum and discipline, opens itself to admitting boys into the system. As a result, five young boys receive admission and only later find out that it is an all-girls institution. After committing voyeurism in the school’s bathing area, the boys receive a month-long sentence in the school’s prison. There will be under the watch of the Underground Student Council.

The series went underprint in 2011, continuing up to 2017 with 28 volumes in all. Kodansha and Yen Press are the official publishers of the manga. Prison School was awarded Best General Manga at the 37th Kodansha Manga Award.

Where will Prison School Season 2 pick up?

After the first season an OVA titled “Prison school: Mad Wax” premiered in March 2016. Most likely, the new season should pick up from where the OVA left. Season 2 will most likely feature the boys’ lives outside prison. In all probability, It should also dwell on the rivalry between the two student councils.

The first season only covered nine volumes leaving around 200 chapters that could be translated into an anime. Since the world breathes on hope, fans are hopeful about a new season. Waiting fingers crossed, Prison School lovers would love to see the young boys thrive in their new Prison School.
