Goblin Slayer Season 2 Plot
At the end of Season 1, the priestess was heard saying “Goblin Slayer has an uncertain destiny because he is a pawn in the hands of the high authorities.” Thus, it is speculated that in Season 2, the narrative might focus on what the priestess had said. More adventures are lined up for the Goblin Slayer and the audience is probably to glimpse his destiny taking shape.
The first season of Goblin Slayer had concluded with the Goblin Slayer and his companions killing several goblins who were attacking them and the farm where Goblin Slayer lived. The Goblin Slayer also slew the Demon Lord. One very striking feature of Season 1 was that the face of the Goblin Slayer had been deliberately hidden. In Goblin Slayer Season 2, the audience might even get to witness more of his face as compared to Season 1 where only his half face was visible.

Up till January 2022, 15 volumes of Goblin Slayer have been released. There are 12 books in the Goblin Slayer manga, along with some other side stories. Considering that the Goblin Slayer novel has not been finished yet and is still ongoing, it is possible that the series has a few more years to go before ending. The latest volume of Goblin Slayer was published by Kumo Kagyu on 14th September 2021, in Japan. The 16th volume will most probably be out in the coming month of February 2022.
Season 1 of the Goblin Slayer anime series was based on the adaptations of volumes 1 and 2. The movie that has been released earlier was based on volume 5. It is thus being presumed that the new season of the anime series, Goblin Slayer Season 2 will be an adaptation of volumes 3, 4 and maybe even 6. This also indicates that there could be a season 3 as well given that there are volumes left for adaptation after season 2.

Goblin Slayer Season 2 – Latest News
One important news update that is making the buzz is that White Fox Studio will not be producing Goblin Slayer Season 2. This is because of the shortage of staff as well as their other commitments of producing Utawarerumono in the summer of 2022. Since the responsibility of the new season now falls on a new studio entirely, they will be required to start everything from scratch. This is probably why Season 2 has been taking much more time and the makers have not yet announced the official release date. Fans also have high expectations from the new studio and wish to see better graphics and adaptation, and have a better watching experience altogether with the coming season 2 of the series.
The show’s popularity has been ever-growing with Goblin Slayer’s Twitter handle gaining followers every day. Goblin Slayer Season 2 has been trending on Google as well since the makers officially announced the production of the season. The anime series has also been a part of several controversies given its bloodshed, slaughter and sexually explicit content, and violence. However, none of this has been responsible for sabotaging its popularity and has been accepted by the audience fully. The series also has a very high IMDb rating which is far more than other anime series. Several types of merchandise have also been released with more than 10 action figures. These include action figures of Goblin Slayer, Priestess, High Elf, and more.
Few Final Words
In the list of most popular light novel series, Goblin Slayer has found its place in the top 50s. The audience is in for a delightful experience with the new season of Goblin Slayer which will soon be released and most probably around July. While there is anticipation for the announcement of the official release date for season 2, there is also anticipation around the official trailer and the makers are surely not going to keep their audience waiting very long for the trailer at least.
