It was announced via their official Twitter account that the television anime Radiant will be receiving a second season! Unlike most announcements of this kind, in a rare moment that transcends time and space, defying all known logic in the universe, we actually have a release time frame and an episode count!

Radiant’s second season will air this year during the Fall anime season, meaning that it will air in October. In addition, the second season will have a 2-cours run with a total of 21 episodes! describes Radiant as follows:

Seth is an aspiring sorcerer from the Pompo Hills area. Like all wizards, he is an “infected,” one of the few living beings who survived the contact of the Nemesis—creatures fallen from the sky that contaminate and decimate all those they touch. Being immune to them, Seth wants to become a Hunter and fight the Nemesis. But more than that, Seth wants to engage in a quest that goes beyond the simple hunt for monsters. He wants to find the Radiant, their presumed cradle. Aided by a faction of fellow sorcerers, he travels the world in search of the Radiant, under the harsh scrutiny of the Inquisition.

VIZ Media currently holds the license to publish the manga in North America. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime and has currently streamed the 21st episode of the first season.
