Anime is a genre that is growing by the day with new material being added almost nonstop. And that is also necessary to fulfill the demand of the continuously growing fanbase out there. However, the downside to such an arrangement is that sometimes a show does not get the right amount of appreciation that is due.
One of these shows is Goblin Slayer. Goblin Slayer falls under the dark fantasy genre. It was received with appreciation from the audience and has since managed a respectful section of fans for itself. The show was adapted from a mini-novel series, which has also been adapted into manga series. Both the mini-novel and manga were also well received by the audience. The show was released in October 2018 and finished in December 2018. It had a total of 12 episodes.
The show follows the journey of a man in armor who has set out with the mission of killing every single goblin there is. The story starts with a priestess joining an adventuring party which goes wrong. Her entire team is killed but she is saved by the man in the armor. The man is known as the Goblin Slayer. The Goblin Slayer was once a common man but his life was turned upside down when his village was attacked by goblins.
Everton wins the village including his family were killed by the goblins. He was the sole survivor and vowed to wipe every goblin off the face of the earth. He found a master who taught him the skills needed to do so and trained him for five years. After that, he went on his mission and has killed numerous goblins.
This has earned him a silver rank as an adventurer. The Goblin Slayer does not use expensive equipment to help him in fights as he does not want some goblin to attain them should he die in battle. The series also generated a movie with was released in February 2020. The film did not gain much approval from the audience.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Release date
The show was released back in 2018 and the fans had already started demanding another season. The finale from the first season also ended with a note saying that the show will be back for another season. This was the main reason people were optimistic for the second season as the creators willed so, too. But, the sad part is that this is the closest we have ever come to the second season.
Since the release of the first season, the makers have remained mum on the second season and we are yet to hear any official announcement from them regarding the show. Although, they did put out a movie that was not very well received by the audience. Although the second season is indeed bound to come out because of the reasons that we will discuss, and the fact that they announced it at the end of the first season, we are yet to hear about any progress in the process.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Trailer
We are yet to hear from the studio regarding any news or trailers for the second season. While it has been more than two years since the show came out, the studio has not put out any information regarding the second season. The second season was promised to the fans in the finale of the first season, but the lukewarm response to the movie could be the reason that we have not yet heard about the trailer.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Plot
The second season holds the answer to many questions that people have from the first season. Naturally, the second season answers all those questions. We will get to see if the Goblin Slayer will ever get to accomplish what he has set out for.
Also, we know that he entertains the possibility that there might be some good goblins out there but refuses to stop his rampage unless one of them turns out. Perhaps the second season explores this lead which could lead to serious character development in the show. Also, it will be engaging to see how the presence of the priestess further affects the life of Goblin Slayer, as we saw in the first season.
Goblin Slayer Season 2 Cast
As we have discussed before, the studio is yet to release some substantial information about the progress and specifications of the second season. However, it is safe to assume that the actors from the previous season will be reprising their roles in the second season. Here is a list of the actors from the first season that is likely to make a comeback in the second season.

Will, we ever get the Goblin Slayer Season 2
Even after two years of the release of the first season, fans are still waiting for the second season. Since there have been no nods from the studio about the second season, fans are skeptical if the second season will ever make it to their screens. If we were to look at the source material for the show, there is plenty left as the mini-novel has over 13 volumes and still going.
This means that there is no shortage of content for the show. Also, the series has been doing fine with the overall sales of the novels, manga, and merchandise. All of these are positive for the possibility of the second season. This means we should be watching the next season by the end of 2021, if the pandemic permits the production is the show.
