Killing Bites Season 2 Release Date & Renewal Status
The first season of Killing Bites delighted young adults worldwide and left fans eager for season 2. However, Liden Films hasn’t made an official release statement yet. Speculations arise about the production house lacking material for season 2.
With six episodes based on ten volumes, the manga series now has sixteen volumes. Fans may need to wait a few more years for additional source material, potentially launching season 2 in early 2025. The show’s popularity guarantees profit, making an official statement likely by the end of 2024.
Is There Enough Manga Source Material For A Sequel?
The season 1 of the anime covers until Volume 6, Chapter 30. The ongoing manga series has a total of 18 Volumes and a total of 89 chapters so far. The sad thing is that the manga has been in haiatus since late 2021 and we haven’t gotten even a single volume published in the past year.
Regardless, there is more than enough source material to adapt season 2 of Killing Bites. At this point, the production company has to decide whether it is worth it or not to renew the show.
While we cannot say with surity that the sequel will drop anytime soon, there is still hope.
