It has been quite a few years that the audience of Akatsuki no Yona has been awaiting the official release of the second season of the show. Based on the manga series written by Mizuho Kusanagi, the viewers have been consistently worried whether this one-series show will even get a renewal or not.
The first season of this show, which spanned across 2014-15 included 24 episodes that the audience has consistently binge-watched from the start till the end. This is a shoujo anime, which is primarily targeted towards the female audience.
As for the plot of the show, it revolves around the characters of the princess of Kouka, who is the daughter of a pacifist King II. She falls in love with Su-won, who happens to be her father’s brother’s son, who doesn’t reciprocate her feelings.
Amidst all the turmoil, what Kouka doesn’t realise is the fact that her kingdom is soon going to be under the threat of a political coup, leading to battles and wars consistently. This leads the princess on the search for the Four Dragons Warriors. The plot then extends from there.
Is there an official release date for Akatsuki no Yona Season 2?
Although the audience has been exceptionally worried about the release of the second season of the show, there are chances that the same could very well happen anytime soon. There are no official confirmations yet but there have been rumors floating about a release date soon.
Studio Pierrot, the production house for the show has waited for quite a lot of time when it comes to announcing the release date of the show. Since the show is based on a manga novel with 34 volumes, the audience is fairly sure that there is a lot of material for the producers to work with.
However, the audience is fairly disappointed at this point. With the long delay of the renewal, there are lesser chances of the show returning. Everyone at this point is wondering whether there is going to be a renewal in 2021 or 2022.
