The Black Summoner light book series was created by Japanese author Doufu Mayoi and artist Kurogin. In October of 2014, it first appeared on the website for online novel publishing Shsetsuka ni Nar. Satelight’s anime version of the series debuted on July 9, 2022, and is now a major topic of conversation. As we’ve been thoroughly enjoying the first season, we’ve chosen to share what we know about a possible Black Summoner season two.
As of yet, there has been no official word that Black Summoner will return for a second season. Black Summoner’s first season is now airing, and the light novel is still being written, thus a second season is certainly possible. While all of this may seem to rule out a second season of Black Summoner, the show’s popularity suggests otherwise. When, though, remains a mystery.
What follows is an analysis of all we know and don’t know about a possible second season of Black Summoner. You will learn when this highly anticipated new anime series may be available, if a trailer exists, what the show may be about, and much more.

Black Summoner Season 2 Plot
As was mentioned earlier, Studio Satelight has not yet officially announced whether or not they would produce a second season of Black Summoner. In any case, prior to the conclusion of the series, what are the possibilities of the anime being continued into a second story arc?
The good news is that following the presentation of episode 12 later on today, there should still be a sufficient amount of source material available to make a further season of the Black Summoner anime. The events that take place up until the end of the third volume of the light novel are planned to be covered in the first season of the series.
There have been a total of 17 complete Tankobon volumes published in Japan as of September 2022, which indicates that there is possibly enough source material for six entire seasons of 12 episodes each of an anime series.
However, there is a troubling concern that has been put in, and that is the possibility that Black Summoner might not be popular enough to warrant a second anime season.
It is noteworthy that the series has struggled to garner any significant traction over the course of the 2022 Summer slate. At the moment, the series is getting a 7.4/10 on IMDB, 3.8/5 on Anime Planet, 70% on Anilist, and 7.12/10 on MyAnimeList, with only a little over 20,000 reviews.
Black Summoner episode 12 is great. Climax & resolution is good. Got me emotionally engaged as I felt hate towards the villain. Fight strategy is OK & felt suspenseful. Ending feels rushed. Would watch season 2. Overall grade B+. #blacksummoner #KuronoShoukanshi #kuronoshokanshi

Although these ratings don’t necessarily spell the end of the Black Summoner series, it’s safe to say that they leave a lot to be desired in terms of whether or not it will be continued. According to AnimeGeek, “the deciding element is the foreign streaming revenue, which might just be barely good enough.” However, the website also notes that “it is unknown whether the anime production committee will have Black Summoner renewed for a second season.”
The fact that Studio Satelight, the production company responsible for Black Summoner, does not presently have any projects that have been publicly confirmed for the year 2023 is a glimmer of hope in this regard. This indicates that there is the possibility that they will be able to produce season 2 the following year.
We will keep our fingers crossed that the home performance in Japan is strong enough to make up for the fact that the overseas reviews were just slightly above average.
Why not catch up on the first season of Black Summoner if you find yourself unable to hold out for the show’s possible second season?
Black Summoner Season 2 Cast
In the series, Kelvin, Efil, Melfina, Clotho, Geral, Sera, Rion, and Ange provide the voices of Koki Uchiyama, Manaka Iwami, Reina Ueda, Randhi, Yosuke Akimoto, and Minori Suzuki, together with Yume Miyamoto and Konomi Inagaki. Yume Miyamoto and Konomi Inagaki also lend their voices to the characters.
Although these are only the primary characters, there will be many more who feature in the episodes to come. In fact, there will be many more than just these main characters. The creators of the show as well as the actors who provided the characters’ voices did an excellent job with the character development and description. We expect the comeback of the same characters with some new ones if the series be renewed for season 2.
Black Summoner Season 2 Release Date
As one might expect, Black Summoner was well-received by fans after its manga and novel releases. On February 17, 2022, it was reported that the show would be getting an anime adaptation, and on July 9, 2022, the first season of the show was made available to the public after being thoroughly tested and reviewed.
The second episode premiered on July 23, 2022, and there will be a total of ten episodes in season 1. Episode 12 will premiere on September 24, 2022; if you’re wondering about the show’s potential, you’ve come to the perfect place.
We regret to inform you that there has been no confirmation of Black Summoner Season 2 from the creators. Many fans are already planning ahead for season 2, despite the fact that season 1 is still airing. Viewers will have to wait until September, when production on Season 1 is scheduled to wrap up, for an official announcement.
Black Summoner Season 2 Trailer
There is currently no available trailer for Black Summoner Season 2. It’s probable that the second season of Black Summoner will premiere soon after it was announced. While you wait for the Season 2 trailer to arrive, you may enjoy the Season 1 trailer in the meantime.
