With the final episode airing today, it was revealed that The Promised Neverland (Yakusoku no Neverland) will be returning for a second television anime season. The second season does not have an official release date; however, it was stated that it will air at some point in 2020. Knowing how anime seasons work, feel free to throw a dart on January, April, July, or October. Maybe the one it lands on will be correct!

Currently, VIZ Media holds the license to distribute the manga in North America. As of the time of this post, eight volumes have been released with a ninth volume scheduled for April. The comedy spinoff manga for the series is not yet licensed in North America; however, it just concluded in Japan.


MyAnimeList.net describes The Promised Neverland as follows:

Surrounded by a forest and a gated entrance, the Grace Field House is inhabited by orphans happily living together as one big family, looked after by their “Mama,” Isabella. Although they are required to take tests daily, the children are free to spend their time as they see fit, usually playing outside, as long as they do not venture too far from the orphanage—a rule they are expected to follow no matter what. However, all good times must come to an end, as every few months, a child is adopted and sent to live with their new family… never to be heard from again.

However, the three oldest siblings have their suspicions about what is actually happening at the orphanage, and they are about to discover the cruel fate that awaits the children living at Grace Field, including the twisted nature of their beloved Mama.
