It’s been over ten years since the cult anime Death Note aired, but its fans have to wait for next season. Death Note was first aired in 2006 and 2007. Attack On Titan director Tetsuro Araki helmed it. The anime tells the story of sunshine Yagami, a high-school student who comes into possession of a mysterious notebook.
The notebook has the facility to kill anyone whose name is written in it. The Death Note anime is by no means the sole adaptation of Tsugumi Ohba’s manga.
Death Note Season 2 Isn’t Likely
Death Note fans will remember the anime ended on a reasonably conclusive note with the death of sunshine Yagami. Its 37 episodes covered much of the action from the first manga. The length of the time that’s passed since it aired is increased, and there’s been no official word from the production company. It might seem Death Note season 2 isn’t happening.
A completely new Death Note chapter will also be published in Japan’s Jump SQ magazine in February 2020. So there’s tons of adaptable material out there should Madhouse ever plan to plough ahead with a second season.
There Are Other Sequels
While Death Note fans might be waiting indefinitely for the second season of the anime, other adaptations of the first manga have gotten a sequel or two. Within the Japanese live-action film series, the primary two movies cover the events of the manga. But there’s also a spin-off movie titled L: Change the planet. Following with a second direct sequel called Death Note: illuminate The New World. Also, with a prequel miniseries named Death Note: New Generation.
Netflix also recently announced its plans for a Death Note sequel. But considering what proportion its first adaptation deviated from the manga, fans of the anime may not welcome with open arms.
