Goblin Slayer 2 is still set to premiere this year

Goblin Slayer

The upcoming second season of Goblin Slayer is on track to premiere sometime this year.

The status of the second season was announced alongside a new key visual on the official Twitter account for the series.

Season two of the popular fantasy action series was announced back in 2021 and details have been scarce since. However the fans of the series have been kept busy with a movie and video games set in the Goblin Slayer universe.

For those unfamiliar with the story, based on the light novel by Kumo Kagyu, the world of Goblin Slayer shows goblins as far more capable and depraved compared to RPG tabletop and video games. Those who are unprepared can be overwhelmed, and suffer horrifically.

The titular Goblin Slayer is an adventurer who has taken on the job of killing these goblins, a task others would consider beneath them. As he gathers companions, he aids them in his mission of vengeance, where each encounter could be their last.

The final episode of the first series adapted chapters 12 and 13 of the light novel, and chapters 14 and 15 of the manga. However, some prior episodes covered three of four chapters of the manga at once, and up to three chapters of the light novel.

As volume 5 of the light novel was adapted into the Goblin Slayer: Goblin’s Crown movie, it is likely volumes 6 and onward will be adapted.
