Death Note began as a well-known manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and drawn by Takeshi Obata. It’s about the adventures of Light Yagami, a genius teenager who one day finds a mysterious notebook. It turns out that the notebook is a Death Note, a magical object that a god of death named Ryuk put in Light’s path.
Light decides to use the Death Note to become a serial killer and get rid of people he thinks are bad in the world. The police gave him the name “Kira,” which is the English word “killer” written in Japanese katakana. In the end, he wants to rid the world of crime using this name (via Death Note News).
Light’s choices have a lot of effects, but the Kira Investigation Team, led by the mysterious detective L, is the main one. Fans of the anime series have been waiting for a second season for a very long time. But Madhouse, the studio that made the popular anime, hasn’t said anything about a second season. Is it finally going to happen? Let’s find out.
Death Note Season 2 Possible Release Date
Since it has not been decided whether or not there will be a second season of the Death Note anime, there is currently no release date set. We will stay here and keep checking for any new information while also keeping this article up to date.
Death Note Season 2 Characters & Cast
There will be no Death Note without Ryuk, its original and crafty owner. Therefore, we will likely see him again if a new season is produced. The narrative of Light has ended the first season. Consequently, he may no longer return. Again, if the second season adapts “Death Note: Special One Shot,” then Minoru Tanaka will likely assume the lead role.

What Will Season 2 of Death Note Be About?
Light, the protagonist of the anime “Death Note,” is fatally shot by Matsuda (Ryô Naitô/Vincent Tong) after attempting to write names on strips of paper from the Death Note he had hidden in his watch. As Light writhes in agony on the floor, Ryuk writes Light’s name in the Death Note.
Light dies instantly of heart arrest while seeing images of his adversary, the deceased detective L. With both of the protagonists from the first season deceased, the show would have to adapt one of several prequels or sequel mangas, or it would have to be a totally new plot. In addition to “Death Note: The a-Kira Story” and “The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases,” there are the one-shot “Chapter 109” (also known as “The C-Kira Story”) and the “L File No. 15” novel.
“The a-Kira Story” would provide the richest narrative vein to extract. During the course of the manga, a student named Minoru Tanaka obtains the Death Note and decides to sell it to the highest bidder. The globe descends into turmoil as American and Chinese authorities fight for the notebook despite Ryuk’s efforts to prevent the sale of the Death Note.

You can watch the trailer for the previous season while there has not been an official announcement from the producers yet.
Which Studio is Making Death Note: Season 2?
Studio Madhouse was responsible for the production of the dazzling adaptation that was shown in Death Note: Season 1. Having said that, a significant amount of time has passed since then, and as of right now, we are unable to say for certain whether Madhouse will once again serve as the project’s leader.

The animation was of such a high quality that it is still regarded as groundbreaking, even though it was produced many years ago. As a consequence of this, we can only hope that Madhouse secures the rights to produce any future adaptations of the franchise.
