The latest instalment in the Baki the Grappler franchise is attracting new viewers and gaining a following on Netflix. Baki Hanma’s first season was met with enthusiasm from its increasing fan base, and the anticipation for the show’s second season is now in full swing.
The first season of the anime, which is a continuation of the three-part Baki, premiered in September 2021 to a devoted fanbase that had been reading the Baki serials in Weekly Shnen Champion during the 1990s. The anime adaptation of the manga is successful, garnering new fans with each new season.
Baki Hanma’s debut season was the most watched to date, and for a good reason: all 12 episodes were riveting. Despite Netflix’s March 2022 confirmation of a second season, there has been no word on when it could be available to subscribers. Exactly when will the second season of Baki Hanma premiere?

Baki Hanma Season 2 Cast
TMS Entertainment, who also created the first “Baki” series on Netflix, also made “Baki Hanma,” and the majority of the cast from that show is also featured in the new Netflix series. Therefore, it is expected that Nobunaga Shimazaki will play the lead role of Baki in Season 2 of “Baki Hanma” alongside Hochu Otsuka’s Biscuit Oliva, Akio Otsuka’s Yuujiro Hanma, and others.
Netflix lists the actors who voiced the characters in the Japanese original of “Baki Hanma”; however, it does not list any actors who voiced the characters in any of its dubs. Despite this, Anime News Network claims that Troy Baker declares Baki in the English version, with James Mathis III and Kirk Thorton providing the voices of Biscuit Oliva and Yuujiro Hanma.
Surprisingly, the English version of “Baki Hanma” has kept the same cast as the previous “Baki” series. Those actors will most likely reprise their roles when “Baki Hanma” returns for a second season.
What Happens In The Baki Hanma Season 2?
Season 1 of Netflix’s “Baki Hanma” ended on a high note as Baki defeated Biscuit Oliva, the most muscular man in the United States. Baki’s “devil” father, Yuujiro Hanma, respects just one other fighter. Therefore his victory earned him the respect of that fighter and ultimately gave him his freedom from Arizona State Prison.
As the last showdown with his son approaches, Yuujiro seems interested in what is happening. He thinks it will be the most brutal battle he’s ever been in. Nonetheless, Baki hasn’t faced his last challenge, and it isn’t Yuujiro. Men have discovered a preserved caveman encased in ice deep inside the Earth, beneath a nuclear waste site in Colorado.

According to the Baki wiki, this is Pickle, an extremely potent and vicious missing link in human evolution. Starting with this episode, the anime adapts the manga’s “Wildman War — Pickle Wars Saga,” which follows Pickle as he fights a wide array of powerful and recognizable foes, including (of course) Baki.
When Will Season 2 Of Baki Hanma be Released?
While we know that the second season of Baki Hanma is on the way, when it will premiere is still up in the air. When it comes to publishing Baki content, Netflix has a proven track record, having gone from renewal to release for season two of Baki, the series that preceded Baki Hanma, in less than a year and a half despite staff changes.
Excited viewers of Baki Hanma, many of whom are craving more, will be pleased to hear this. Given that the first season of Baki Hanma premiered in September 2021, we can assume that the second season will follow a similar release pattern.
Season two’s release in under six months is ambitious but not impossible, especially given Netflix‘s track record of quickly delivering episodes of this show. However, given the difficulty of getting an anime to audiences, it is more likely that fans will have to wait a little longer.
It takes time to make a series. Therefore season two of Baki Hanma probably won’t air until 2023. Season 2 probably won’t air until the spring of 2023 unless a lot of the prep work was done during season 1. When new information becomes available, we will add it to this article.
