The first season of Chainsaw Man aired on October 12, 2022, leaving anime fans with a lot to look forward to in the second season.

Now, before you get excited thinking that the second season will be released in 2023, we have to disappoint you with some news. There is no official confirmation surrounding the release of Chainsaw Man Season 2. The network hasn’t renewed the show yet.

That said, there are rumors that Chainsaw Man will most likely return in 2024 if the reports from other media outlets are to be believed.

What is the Expected Plot of Chainsaw Man Season 2?

Chainsaw Man Season 2 Plot

Moving on to the plot of the show, Chainsaw Man Season 2 will most likely continue where the first season ended.

If you have yet to watch the first season, let us give you a brief rundown of the show first. Chainsaw Man follows the life of Denji, who lives with the Chainsaw Devil, Pochita. Thrust into this dark life, Denji is stuck harvesting devil corpses with Pochito because of his father’s poor financial decisions.

However, Denji gets killed out of nowhere and later derives a pact with Pochita, asking him to reincarnate as “Chainsaw Man.” That’s the basis of the show.

Now, come to the second season and what you can expect from the second season of the show. The first season ended with Denji and his friends almost at the finish line of finding Gun Devil. However, along the ride, there are a lot of easter eggs and loopholes that the creators have left open-ended.

This goes to show that the second season will most likely come back and address those factors. For example, the dark-haired woman who appeared, in the end, is still a mystery. We might find out who it was in the second season.

Given that the show is derived from Tatsuki Fujimoto’s manga, there is a lot that hasn’t been showcased in the first season, which will make its way into the second season. If you were blown away by the first season, we have to give you the credit because the second one will be even crazier.
