Season 2 of the anime is going on right now. There were no significant announcements except for the unveiling of the new trailer. The show’s cast, the director, and the producer discussed the ongoing season and the best moments so far. 

 

Chainsaw Man

The most exciting part quickly became a bummer with the lack of information about season 2. Chainsaw Man season 1 rose to popularity very quickly and fans were looking forward to announcements by the studio about season 2 and potential trailer release but nothing happened.
